Wisconsin's 2nd-half drought leads to 71-56 loss to MI

The game will be played at the Horizon Center in downtown Washington D.C. The Michigan Wolverines are 23-11 on the season, and were the 8th seed in the Big Ten Tournament.

The moment Hayes learned that Michigan's flight Wednesday ended up in a ditch, forcing an emergency evacuation, he all but predicted this would happen.

In fact, MI began the tournament with a first-round bye, facing off against IL in the second round, showing up just a couple hours before the game, demolishing the Illini. Wisconsin is 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games as a favorite of 0.5-6.5 and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a game where they covered the spread while the under is 27-13-2 in their last 42 games overall. The two losses? In overtime at Minnesota and at Northwestern on a miraculous shot. "Now to get them a championship like this, they deserve it".

Here, though, is why they made the championship game of that tournament with Saturday's 84-77 semifinal victory over Minnesota: They are really good. The turnover-to-assist ratio of 12-to-5 was the worst of the season, and the only other effort that came close was an 11-turnover, 5-assist disaster at IL - which was another extremely stagnant performance.

Northwestern, much like IN the night before, didn't have an answer for Nigel Hayes and Ethan Happ inside and then the Badgers were dialed IN from deep as they hit 12 3-pointers.

"There's been a theme of thankfulness and just being blessed to have this opportunity", junior Duncan Robinson said.

"I definitely think there is some unfinished business we have", Koenig said. Heck, the Wolverines even got to wear their proper blue road jerseys - with their last names printed on the back and everything - to face 13th-ranked Purdue in the Big Ten quarterfinals.

They've, by and large, put trivial matters aside - even though they need reminders every now and again. The Wolverines struggled to stop Wisconsin guard Bronson Koenig, who did not play against MI in Ann Arbor. Beilein called a timeout to settle them down. I wouldn't want to do this with any other group of guys. "Here's why we win, because we're connected and right now, you're disconnected'". Wisconsin looks to be back to their old selves, now can they bring that same play to a championship match-up with MI? Coffey, a former MI recruiting target, finished the first half with 11 points.

Coming out of the second media timeout, Derrick Walton Jr. made two free throws, giving UM a 46-36 lead.

"He just kept telling me to shoot it, shoot it, shoot it", Wilson said, munching on pretzels in the locker room.

"God is good. We overcame a lot", Walton said of surviving the plane scare. "It's kind of reverse now".

In defeat, Wisconsin becomes more interesting heading into the NCAA tournament.

"People can have bad days and miss shots, but we know somebody's there who will carry us", Michigan's Moritz Wagner said.

"They're very versatile", Minnesota forward Jordan Murphy told SN.
