A day after their plane crash, MI obliterated IL to open the Big Ten Tournament, bursting the Illini bubble and ending John Groce's tenure as IL head coach. Wagner is hitting 41 percent from deep with more than 40 made threes. Wilson stood up cheering his teammate after a made 3-pointer and wandered down the bench as if he were checking back into the game. That included 29 on Saturday in a stirring duel against Minnesota's excellent junior, Nate Mason.
"God is good. We overcame a lot", Walton said of surviving the plane scare. They can play on the perimeter, they can play in the post. I was having a discussion on Twitter the other day about the Canes' hoops future for this season, and the key will be finding a way to win a game in which they don't play to their full potential.
Greg Gard's players reminded the Wildcats and the rest of the Big Ten that UW can be a formidable foe when it marries defensive intensity with offensive efficiency. He scored 26 against the Boilermakers, with this approach as the foundation of that production.
Hayes has missed a few practices of late with a groin injury. The Wolverines maintained their lead for the remainder of the first half, but any time that they threw a punch and seemed like they were about to pull away, the Badgers responded with a punch of their own. "But actually my mentality going into games doesn't change".
Playing far better than its seed, MI showed it has a ton of offensive options and can compensate if one or two players doesn't have it.
This is a team that was all but left for dead two months ago. They never looked back from there.
College basketball teams across the United States are about to find out how impressive their seasons really were.

The Spartans (19-14) will face No. 8 seed Miami (21-11) on Friday, March 17 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, at the BOK Center.
Hollis also addressed one of the biggest name teams to not make the tournament: Syracuse. For the record, they rank No. 9 in the KenPom.com efficiency rankings.
The Badgers would go into the locker room trailing by just a single point, 33-32, but came out hopelessly flat to open the second.
So they don't just bring threes from positions that defenders aren't always expecting, or prepared to handle.
They've, by and large, put trivial matters aside - even though they need reminders every now and again. Given that UM uses only eight players, that's basically the whole rotation.
The team's plane, which was headed to the Big Ten tournament in Washington, D.C., was attempting to take off in high winds at Willow Run Airport in Ypsilanti, Michigan, about 15 miles from campus, the school said. The only questions were what they'd be seeded, where they are going and their opening opponent.
Zak Irvin has been the focus of much criticism this season, but none of that was on his mind on his driving basket at the end of regulation that forced overtime in their win over Purdue on Friday. We have a great opportunity in front of us. "All of the adversity that we've been to throughout the whole tournament, we stuck together as a family and got the job done".
