The Michigan Wolverines come into tonight's game in need of a win perhaps more than they have all season long.


John Beilein and company are looking to lock up an at-large bid in the NCAA Tournament and cannot afford to lose to Northwestern at Crisler Center this evening. Getting to 20 wins seems like it could be the magic number and tonight is the easiest of the final three regular season opponents to get it done against.
