Michigan was the best team in the Big Ten Conference at tournament time past year, and things aren't changing.Mo Wagner scored 14 of his 15 points after a terrible first half and fifth-seeded Michigan moved within a game of its second straight Big Ten Tournament title with a 75-64 victory over top-seeded Michigan State on Saturday, ending the No. 2 ranked Spartans' 13-game winning streak.
A MI program known for its breathtaking offense under John Beilein is finding a different way to win this season.
"We're playing in an elimination game".
Mo Wagner scored 14 of his 15 points after a terrible first half and fifth-seeded Michigan moved within a game of its second straight Big Ten Tournament title with a 75-64 victory over top-seeded Michigan State in the conference semifinals Saturday, ending the No. 2 ranked Spartans' 13-game winning streak. The Wolverines focused late and kept their cool early. Despite that, Pearson said he thought his team came out much more ready to play compared to Friday night. "Their coaches did a good job of bringing them up to the Tournament and fighting through it". More context: The five top 75 RPI wins for John Beilein's bunch since February 1 are the most in the Big Ten over the last four weeks. Matthews, a 55% free throw shooter, hit 8 of 10 free throws in the games, as well. The run ended with a one-point loss against OR in the Sweet 16.
Yante Maten led Georgia with 18 points and nine rebounds, and Rayshaun Hammonds added 12 points. "But like I said, we're not going to let this affect us in the future".

Traylor, Baston, Ward and Josh Asselin combined for 53 points. Just like they did from Derrick Walton and we all know how that turned out. "We had a great crowd. No agendas, no personal drama, everything is regarding the team goal - and that's big time".
It was the Wolverines' ability to finish strong that gave MI the Tournament trophy.
Flaherty hit three 3s and Thome scored six points in a 17-5 run that made it 32-17 with a minute left in the first half and the Wolverines led by double figures the rest of the way.

Keady's Kids did have another opportunity to get back in the game down 11, but four straight missed free throws slammed the door shut. Maybe Michigan quietly winds up as a No. 6 seed. He's one of five players in the Purdue rotation who can at least 40 percent of their three-pointers. "I love the team we have right now and we're really hot". We just have to use this to fuel our fire. Two straight conference championships wouldn't be half bad either. Couple that with the fact Purdue was still without Jaraan Cornell and a less-than-effective Cardinal, who was suffering from a virus, and the task became even more hard.
