Big dunk by Moussa

Had to love Moussa's play on both ends. Same with shot Kobe's huge shot in the clutch. T-Will was terrific... but most of all Devante Jones was flat out brilliant!! Helluva job, @umichbball... HELLUVA job!!! https://t.co/j8XcaMbT16— Sam Webb (@SamWebb77) March 6, 2022
Phil Martelli and Michigan went 3-2 without Juwan Howard. Heck of a job.— Brad Galli (@BradGalli) March 6, 2022
Phil Martelli and his absolutely ginormous maize pullover just beat Michigan State by 17 and Ohio State on the road five days apart, and likely punched Michigan's ticket into the NCAA Tournament field.— Zach Shaw (@_ZachShaw) March 6, 2022
DeVante' Jones was superb and Michigan likely locked up an NCAA bid. Big win on the road 75-69 over Ohio State. No Hunter Dickinson, but Jones and Brooks steady and cool. And so was the guy on the sideline, Phil Martelli.— Bob Wojnowski (@bobwojnowski) March 6, 2022
And thus ends Phil Martelli’s tenure as acting head coach.— Brendan Quinn (@BFQuinn) March 6, 2022
A 3-2 record essentially secured Michigan’s NCAA bid. Not too bad.
(But won’t count in the history books. Results will count as Juwan Howard’s.) https://t.co/u3LCRCVdFC
The phrase "must win game" is used too often in college hoops but this was a must win game for Michigan.— Dylan Burkhardt (@umhoops) March 6, 2022
Wolverines go on the road without Hunter Dickinson and get it done, 75-69, against Ohio State.
U-M finishes 11-9 in Big Ten play.
#Michigan may have just punched its ticket to the NCAA Tournament, beating Ohio State without Hunter Dickinson. pic.twitter.com/tDVf2m1NZO— Marlee Wierda (@marleewierda) March 6, 2022
DeVante Jones knows what month it is. He had 21 points and nine assists as Michigan, minus Hunter Dickinson, beats Ohio State 75-69. Gonna be tough to keep Michigan out of the NCAA Tournament now.— Austin Meek (@byAustinMeek) March 6, 2022
Michigan has punched its ticket to the NCAA Tournament.— Clayton Sayfie (@CSayf23) March 6, 2022
Michigan wins at OSU with no Dickinson. Big one. Should get them in. Phil Martelli is a damn good coach in addition to playing Frank Barone.— Jeff Ermann (@Jeff_Ermann) March 6, 2022
No Juwan Howard. No Hunter Dickinson. Caleb Houstan 0-for-10.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanHoops) March 6, 2022
Michigan still gets a MONSTER road win in Columbus against Ohio State.
Wolverines effectively punched their ticket into NCAA tourney with this one.
Michigan beating Ohio State the last game of the season -- get used to it ♂️— Trevor Woods (@WoodsFootball) March 6, 2022
