The Wolverines survived their play in game and now get set for a date with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the round of 64.
Notre Dame had a bit of success in the ACC tourney as they earned a bye into a matchup with Duke and erased a giant deficit to come back and win in overtime.
Michigan has been the definition of “live and die by the three.”
That was the case against Tulsa as they continued to miss three after three and it looked as if they were going to shoot their way out of the tournament. However, with the Wolverines down 1, Zak Irvin stepped into a 3 and drilled it with under a minute to play.
That’s been the story line for the Wolverines this season, they never give up on what has worked for them. This is a 3 point shooting team. Despite them not falling, they stayed with it and it paid off.
Michigan has also showed off some solid defensive efforts and one of those did come against Tulsa. On the season, the Wolverines have allowed an average of just 67.5 points against. Look for them to really use that pressured defense against a Notre Dame team that can score and score quick.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Notre Dame gets a chance to really make amends for their late slip up last season as they are back in the NCAA Tournament.
The Fighting Irish had Kentucky on the ropes in Cleveland in the Sweet 16, but a couple late turnovers and defensive breakdowns did the Irish in and sent Kentucky on in the tournament. They’ll open tourney play against a Michigan team that shook the rust off in a play in game.
Notre Dame pulled off a solid comeback in the ACC tourney before falling to UNC, but this team is very talented on both sides of the ball. The Fighting Irish average 76 points per game and concede just 70.
The Fighting Irish will look to Demetrius Jackson as their go to guy, as they have all season long. Jackson has averaged 15.5 points per game and played a big part in the comeback against Duke.

This is going to be a solid game as these teams play very similar styles of basketball.
The key to the game will be Michigan’s shooting vs. the Irish defense. The Wolverines nearly fell out of the tourney after a poor shooting performance and they cannot afford that here.
