Big Ten Tournament bracket finalized; Michigan to face winner of Maryland-Michigan State


Good. Either we get a chance at payback vs. Sparty or we play a Maryland team we match up well with.


Wouldn’t mind the rubber match with Sparty, but Maryland is a bad rebounding team, so it would be nice to face a team that shouldn’t hurt us on second chance opportunities.

@umhoops I think you mean 11:30 EST, no?

Yep – sorry fixed.

I need that Michigan State rematch now.


If we had to choose we should want to face Maryland. Maryland doesn’t have a lot of height to bother Dickinson imo and their backcourt still goes 6’5-6’6. That would be good to have Chaundee out there along with Franz-Livers-Smith-Dickinson. I can’t see Brooks being ready for Friday and against MSU they would just hunt Watts or Henry and get a mismatch. MSU seemed quite comfortable playing Bingham 25 mins down low.

I always want to see MSU lose now, later, and in the interim, too. So I am cool with playing MD. But I think a rubber match with Izzo in Indianapolis is a very good thing. I don’t see us blundering into another loss.
