Ready for another rock fight?

Michigan fell into a 10-0 hole last year against Montana before clawing its way to a 61-47 victory in the opening round of the 2018 West Regional in Wichita. The numbers were ugly (.92 points per possession for the Wolverines versus .71 for the Grizzlies), but Charles Matthews led the way with 20 points in a slog.

The rematch begins at approximately 9:20 p.m. EST on Tru TV in Wells Fargo Center in Des Moines. What’s Tru TV? It’s the station where you can watch reruns of Cops.

After getting your fill of police brutality, watch what will surely be a brutally slow matchup between two deliberate offenses.

Also, let’s get a conversation going. Question of the day is: How far can the Wolverines get in this NCAA Tournament, and who is the toughest team that can get in their way to the Final Four?

Go Blue, and happy bracket watching!
