Tracy Wolfson

Just one week ago, MI became the lowest seeded team to win a Big Ten Tournament title. They also earned a ticket to the Midwest Regional in Kansas City, Missouri, their first since 2014. The Jayhawks will play Purdue next, the other Big Ten team that made it to the Sweet 16.

But Wagner bailed out the Wolverines from a poor game.

A Mathiang layup with 15:58 remaining extended Louisville's lead to 45-36, but MI countered with a 10-4 run to close within 49-46 with 11:23 on the clock.

Kansas 90, Michigan State 70: In Tulsa, top-seeded Kansas gained an edge late in the first half against ninth-seeded Michigan State and then raced past the Spartans.

The Wildcats (31-5) led 58-51 with 4:06 left when freshman De'Aaron Fox made a steal near midcourt and drove for a dunk, but the Shockers (31-5) rallied, pulling within 63-62 on freshman Landry Shamet's 3-pointer with 55.7 seconds left.

OR 75, Rhode Island 72: In Sacramento, Tyler Dorsey drained a 3-pointer with 11 seconds remaining to help third-seeded OR advance to the Sweet 16.

Wichita had two three-point chances to tie or take the lead in the game's final 13 seconds.

With Oregon's season on the brink of an early NCAA Tournament exit, Brooks found his shooting stroke as he typically does and scored 19 points despite a 7-for-20 shooting day. He's averaging 16.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.7 assists and hit a couple of game-winning shots in the regular season.

The Wolverines, who have won seven straight games, defied odds to claim a conference title, prevailed in the first two games of the NCAA Tournament and are now a favorite against a higher seed in the Sweet 16.
