MI headed to Final Four after holding off Florida State

MI headed to Final Four after holding off Florida State”

MI is headed to the Final Four for the second time in six seasons.

"You think the game came down to the final seconds of the game?"

Ben Richardson made three 3s and had 11 points in the half for the Ramblers, who are attempting to advance to their first Final Four since winning the 1963 championship.

Loyola (32-5) made a stunning run through the South, beating Kansas State 78-62 in the regional final to equal the lowest-seeded team ever to reach the Final Four. The senior guard was quiet in his first three games of the tourney, however he has gone a combined 11 for 17 from the field in his last two games, and he is averaging seven points on the season. We'll see if Sister Jean and the Ramblers have any more magic left in them or if the Wolverines will finally solve the mid-major from Chicago.

The 2018 NCAA tournament will be over just eight days from now.

Charles Matthews led MI with 17 points and 8 rebounds, as the team overcame poor free throw shooting and an abysmal 3-point game (18.2%) to reach the Final Four for the first time since 2013, when they also reached the final and lost to MI, a result that was vacated recently. The Ramblers have now registered 14 consecutive wins, and they have allowed 68 or fewer points in ten straight. Against Texas A&M, they shot the lights out, scoring 99 points.

Loyola-Chicago is blowing away expectations that its Elite Eight matchup with Kansas State would be a close game.

The reporter asked Hamilton why his team chose not to foul MI while down 4 points with about 10 seconds left in the game. After making almost 62 percent of their shots against the Aggies, the Wolverines are only 7 for 21 against the Seminoles.

MI guard Charles Matthews had 17 points and eight rebounds while Moritz Wagner added 12 points and six rebounds.

Time to punch the first two tickets to the Final Four. But instead of ordering his team to foul and send MI back to the free-throw line, Hamilton called off the dogs and conceded defeat.

"They call themselves the junkyard dogs", Beilein said, referring to Florida State's nickname for its defense. The Wolverines are holding opponents to an average of 63.1 points, good for eighth in the country.

Loyola took a big lead of 23 points at 61-38.

I normally wouldn't believe it, but after that interview who the hell knows.

"When you're a 10-year-old boy, you dream about this moment - going to the Final Four", sophomore center Jon Teske said. "Even when things do not go right on the offensive end, they were exceptional on defense". The Wolverines just held the Seminoles to 54 points, and they are effective against the three which I expect to continue in this one.
