Video: Michigan's Jordan Morgan hits game-winner

Michigan had another late game-winner in Friday’s quarterfinal victory over No. 9 Illinois. This time, it was Jordan Morgan lifting Michigan to an exciting late win. Earlier this season, Derrick Walton Jr. (at Nebraska) and Glenn Robinson III (at Purdue) did the same to help lead the Wolverines to the Big Ten crown and the No. 1 seed in the tourney. Watch the three game-winners in this post. [ MORE: View all of our Big Ten tourney coverage ] VIDEO: The latest @umichbball game-winning shot came from senior Jordan Morgan.

No. 1 Michigan escapes No. 9 Illinois, 64-63

(AP) Jordan Morgan scored on a layup with 7.9 seconds left, giving No. 8 Michigan a 64-63 victory over Illinois in Friday’s Big Ten tournament. The Illini had a chance to win on Tracy Abrams’ shot, but it bounced off the front of the rim as the final buzzer sounded. Michigan (24-7), the regular season champion, advances to Saturday’s semifinals with its seventh straight win. It will face either fourth-seeded Nebraska or fifth-seeded Ohio State – two teams it has not lost to this season. The Buckeyes and Cornhuskers play later Friday. [ MORE: AP RECAP | BOX | PBP

Big Ten Geeks: An Easy Bubble Solver Update

We sit a mere two days from Selection Sunday, yet much is still to be determined in Indianapolis. Thursday’s quarterfinals saw Minnesota and Illinois keep hope alive. How much more do these teams, along with Nebraska, need to do to get into the Big Dance? As you could probably tell over the last couple weeks, we’re fans of the Easy Bubble Solver. It’s a quick, easy, and objective way to get a feel for who’s truly on the bubble and who isn’t. You simply add together each team’s KenPom rank and RPI rank, then sort them from smallest to largest.

Twitter: How would you fix Iowa before NCAA tourney?

Iowa’s struggles continued vs. Northwestern on Thursday night in the opening round of the Big Ten tourney, as the Hawkeyes lost for the sixth time in their last seven games. What’s wrong with Iowa? What do they need to fix or change before the NCAA tourney? I asked Iowa fans on Twitter for their answers, and they were quite entertaining.
