The Wolverines are looking to advance to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1994, and take the next step towards ascending the proverbial ladder as an elite program.
A brief look at Ohio, who upended Akron in the Mid-American title game on Saturday:
Record (Conf.): 27-7 (11-5 MAC)
Strength of Schedule: 165
KenPom Ranking: 72
Sagarin Ranking: 72
RPI Ranking: 47
Offensive Efficiency: 114th
Defensive Efficiency: 50th
The Bobcats are one of the best teams in America at forcing turnovers on defense (14.0 steal%), and will put constant pressure on freshman Trey Burke and Michigan's ball-handlers.
