The field is set and the first four is set to get underway. The first matchup features the Tulsa Golden Hurricane and the Michigan Wolverines.
Both teams were in the middle of a giant bubble that featured many teams across many different conferences.
The two did not have their bubbles bursted, but will be forced to play a play in game with the winner getting 6th seed Notre Dame.
Tulsa Golden Hurricane
The bubble was filled with teams and a lot of people can argue that Tulsa maybe didn’t deserve to be one of the few at large teams.
Tulsa lost 2 of their last 3 games, both to Memphis, and the main reason they find themselves here? Because of Uconn.
The Committee chairman came out and said that since the Huskies knocked off Memphis in the AAC Title Game, the Golden Hurricane deserved the spot in the tournament.
Tulsa finished 6th in the AAC regular season with a 12-6 record and their resume was actually rather weak. Their key wins came against Wichita State, who was #9 at the time, and SMU.
Tulsa scores 74.0 points per game and concedes 69.7.
Michigan didn’t impress much down the stretch, but they did just enough in the Big 10 tournament to seal their fate with the committee.
The Wolverines knocked off Northwestern in the opening round and then followed that up with an upset win against #10 Indiana. Michigan drilled a 3 at the buzzer to upset the Hoosiers, boosting their resume enough.
Michigan finished 8th in the Big Ten in the regular season and conference wins over Purdue, Maryland, and Indiana bolstered their “quality wins”.
Michigan is led by Zak Irvin, who averages 11.7 points to go along with nearly 5 rebounds per game and 3 assists. Irvin went for 17 points and 5 rebounds in the win over Indiana.
CBB Betting Trends:
Tulsa is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 games
Tulsa is 12-5 SU in its last 17 games
Free Tulsa Golden Hurricane vs. Michigan Wolverines CBB Prediction:
The argument can certainly be made about both teams not deserving this spot, but this proves to be a good matchup.
Michigan will have the advantage in the paint, but the Tulsa defense likes to swarm and really put the pressure on. Expect the winner to force a lot of turnovers and turn those into transition buckets.
