The Michigan Wolverines have made Final Four this year after suffering a heartbreaking Sweet 16 loss in 2017 to the Oregon Ducks. This year the Wolverines entered the tournament as a 3 seeded team despite winning the Big Ten Conference title by defeating the Purdue Boilermakers. The Wolverines’ head coach John Beilein was recently named NCAA Basketball Coach of the Year by CBS Sports. Michigan will play in the first game of Saturday night, facing Sister Jean and the 11-seeded Loyola Ramblers.
