Michigan looked poised to win the Big Ten Tournament, but stumbled against rival Michigan State which resulted in the #2 seeding for the big dance. Although , this #2 seed is the highest the team has reached since the “Fab 5” way back in 1993, where the team reached the tournament final.

Much of Michigan’s success this season has to do with Mississauga, Ontario’s Nik Stauskas who has emerged as the Big Ten Conference’s top player. the 6’6 guard is Michigan’s top offensive threat on the floor who specializes in long range shooting with a 48.3% mark from 3-point range.

Being a Canadian, Nik Stauskas has been subject to heckling while playing basketball in the United States. Staukas has proven that he is not effected by the taunting as he nailed a long range 3 pointer to beat the buzzer against Illinois and silenced the crowd while they chanted U-S-A! U-S-A!

The opening game against Wofford on Thursday should see the Michigan Wolverines as double digit favourites and a win would set up a game with either Texas or Arizona State. Should Michigan win here then that would set up a Sweet 16 game against Duke most likely, and a Final Four would shape up to be against Wichita St. or Louisville.
