And No. 6 Ohio State fell to No. 11 Dayton today. But neither loss was a stunner. But the fact the defeats came early in the tourney, it caught the attention of critics. No matter, the Big Ten’s “Big Three” opened with victories today. And they looked good doing it. [ MORE: Dienhart: Ohio State’s elimination no surprise ] No. 2 Wisconsin destroyed No. 15 American.

Michigan tops Wofford in NCAA Tourney opener

Jordan Morgan notched a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds as Michigan defeated Wofford 57-40 on Thursday night in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The Wolverines (26-8) capitalized on their decisive edge in athleticism on the undersized Terriers (20-13) but still had some nervous moments after missing 15 of their first 18 shots in the second half. Karl Cochran’s 3-pointer with 9:25 left whittled an 18-point deficit to 40-33. But the Wolverines regrouped, and Caris LeVert’s 3 with 4:17 left gave them a 15-point lead to deflate Wofford’s dreams of an upset. Nik Stauskas had 15 points
