Michigan Is A Two Seed In The Midwest Region

The Wolverines are headed to Milwaukee for the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Michigan wasn't able to hang on to the number one seed after a loss to Michigan State in the Big Ten Tournament, but Michigan will be close to home for its matchup against Wofford in the 2-seed/15-seed game on Thursday.

If Michigan wins its first game, it will face the winner of Texas-Arizona State for a Sweet Sixteen trip.

The other high seeds in the Midwest Region are one-seed Witchita State, three-seed Duke, and four-seed Louisville.

Michigan's first round opponent, Wofford, got in after winning the conference tournament.  Overall Wofford is 20-12 on the season and is ranked 184th in Kenpom's rankings.  Also, the Terriers have not won a single game against a team ranked better than 200 in Kenpom's rankings.
