One-seed Michigan faces four-seed Florida State in the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana, on Sunday, March 28, 2021 (3/28/21).
Longer, taller and deeper than LSU, the top-seeded Wolverines slowly wore down the Tigers. They got 21 points each from Eli Brooks and Chaundee Brown Jr., in a roller-coaster 86-78 victory that salvaged some hope for the hurting conference at the NCAA Tournament.
By the time coach Juwan Howard and Co. had returned to the hotel after their second-round game, Maryland had lost to Alabama, leaving the Wolverines as the only ones remaining of the nation-leading nine Big Ten teams who came to Indy.
And though they can’t undo what’s happened to the rest of the conference, that Big Ten seasoning came in handy in this one — a game Michigan (22-4) trailed in by nine early and had to fight to stay in range.
“That’s the test of the Big Ten, honestly,” Brooks said. “We get tested every night.”
In a game full of big runs, the Wolverines used the biggest -- 14-1 over the decisive stretch midway through the second half -- to pull away and save face for a conference that has otherwise tanked these four days in Indianapolis.
The Wolverines moved on to their fourth straight Sweet 16, where they’ll play No. 4 Florida State next weekend. They’ll represent the only chance left for a conference that has lost everyone, from No. 1 seed (Illinois), to No. 2 Ohio State, all the way down to 11th-seeded Michigan State, a perennial power that went out in the play-in round.
The Seminoles are heading back to the Sweet 16 after defeating the No. 5 seed Colorado Buffaloes 71-53 on Monday night. The two teams went back and forth in the first half, but the Seminoles pulled away in the second with a 47-point half.
Florida State got an excellent performance from Anthony Polite, who scored a career-high 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting from the field. Polite also shot 4-of-7 from behind the arc. He carried the offensive workload for the Seminoles as Walker (7) and Raiquan Gray (9) were both held under 10 points. Defensively, the Seminoles held the Buffs to only 35.7% shooting from the field and 24% from three-point range.
The Wolverines survived a first half scare from the No. 8 seed LSU Tigers to win 86-78 on Monday night to advance. The Wolverines will be going back to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2019.
Michigan had four players score in double figures led by Eli Brooks and Chaundee Brown, who had 21 points a piece. Brown’s 21 points off the bench gave the Wolverines a huge lift and was a difference maker on Monday. Franz Wagner had 15 points and seven rebounds, while Hunter Dickinson recorded a double-double consisting of 12 points and 11 rebounds.
The Wolverines shot 53.8% from the field and 40% from three-point range. Michigan held LSU to 39.1% shooting from the field and 28.6% from behind the arc. Cameron Thomas led the Tigers with 30 points.
