With a strong showing, MI could secure a spot on the 2-line for the Big Dance.
After wins against Northwestern and No. 11 Purdue, the Gophers finished the regular season with a 69-60 loss at Maryland last Friday. The Spartans, however, won the last meeting on February 24, 77-70, in Ann Arbor and are 26-17 since Izzo took over as head coach in 1995.
Saturday's game is the biggest of the season for the Spartans, and maybe the biggest game in Breslin Center history. But whatever Tom Izzo said in the home locker room at the break clearly worked- Sparty turned it on big time the rest of the way, outscoring the Wolverines 46-28 in the second half and leaving absolutely no doubt, taking the lead for good with 10:16 to go.
If the Wolverines were to match up with the Spartans again this season, it would potentially come in the Big Ten Tournament championship next Sunday. It's going to be a tough environment for MI to get a win at.

Michigan: Charles Matthews, who averages 12.8 points, missed his third straight game with an ankle injury. Defensively, the Spartans are giving up 66 points per game while holding opponents to just 37.5 percent shooting.
It was an incredible two-day stretch for the Spartans as they hosted MI in one of the best environments college basketball has seen this season and came away with a 75-63 win as Kenny Goins and Matt McQuaid were able to kiss the Spartan logo to cap off Senior Day the right way. The Wolverines are playing with confidence, having fun and winning games.
