Nickname: Wolverines. Coach: John Beilein.

The Wolverines will not be the only MI team in action on Friday.

Oh, you didn't know that Northwestern was one of five teams to have never made the NCAA tournament? The second East Region game will feature No. 2 Duke, who will take on a No. 7 SC squad that blasted No. 10 Marquette on Friday.

They blew a late lead against Virginia Tech. He missed five of his six shots in the first half, but came out firing after halftime, triggering a furious long-range shooting display by the Wolverines.

"We haven't played a team that got up into us in a minute".

Before that, Gregory was a graduate assistant and assistant coach under Jud Heathcote and remained on Izzo's first staff from 1990-96.

Walton is the driver with his foot on the accelerator, doing what seniors often do in March, injecting a sense of urgency into his team. "We go as he goes, so hopefully he's got more left in the tank". Berry checked back into the game after landing awkwardly and will likely continue to play, but it's a story to monitor moving forward.

He said he'd like to be a head coach again, "but I love where I am".

"(Schneider) is a good player, and he certainly played well, the first half especially". "It's very hard when you've got a downhill driver like that, he can throw anything off the board". He wasn't countering at all, he was deferring. We have a German on our team (Berlin's own Wagner).

Gottlieb, it should be noted, tipped his cap to Walton after the game.

The first possession on offense ended with him finding Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman under the basket for a layup.

Derrick Walton Jr. led MI with 26 points, 11 assists and five rebounds and helped lead the team to a blistering shooting day from beyond the arc in the second half. Walton has fueled Michigan's turnaround since early February and will now try to lead the Wolverines on an extended run in the NCAA Tournament. The early games include third-seeded Baylor against 14th-seeded New Mexico State, eighth-seeded Arkansas against ninth-seeded Seton Hall and third-seeded OR against 14th-seed Iona. With 14:56 left in the second half, MSU was in control, 49-32.

It looked like that streak might end Friday after Oklahoma State opened the second half on a 12-5 run to take a 52-46 lead. A sixth swish, from Walton, gave U-M a 62-61 lead with 12 minutes to play and provided a clear indication of what was in store for the remainder of the game.

"It's going to come down to we're going to have to shoot the ball better and a lot of that is going to fall on (Matt) McQuaid and (Joshua) Langford and (Cassius) Winston and probably (Alvin) Ellis", Izzo said. "He has that rule, and he trusted me in that moment. I thought both had a little coming-out party".

"I was surprised, for sure, because that's his rule".

"I remember I got to go because another assistant had a last-minute cancellation". Walton hit him in stride, Wagner laid it in softly and the comeback was on.

The PSU hockey season may come down to one game in Detroit versus MI. Most importantly, its offense had begun to show signs of life.
