Michigan was able to overcome a 15-point deficit to defeat the No. 6 seed Colorado State Rams in the first round of the tournament. Meanwhile, Tennessee mopped the floor against the No. 14 seed Longwood in a first round matchup that was never all that close.
The last time Michigan and Tennessee met also was in the NCAA Tournament, as the Wolverines beat the Volunteers 73-71 back in March of 2014. Back then, Tennessee was the No. 11 seed while Michigan was a No. 2 seed.
That game came down to the wire, so can the low-seeded Wolverines keep it close much like Tennessee did eight years ago? Can the upset be pulled off? We’ll find out soon enough.
