March Madness Sweet 16 Games: TV schedule, start time, how to watch
That’ll do it. Final 1:49 took forever, but much like earlier, Michigan couldn’t hit shots around the basket or at the free-throw line. Jermaine Samuels led all scorers with 22 points, Justin Moore added 15, while Hunter Dickinson finishes with 15 and 15 rebounds. Eli Brooks added 14. The Wolverines’ wild season has come to an end. Make sure to read Andrew Kahn’s MLive game story.
Thanks for following along tonight.
Villanova 59, Michigan 50, 1:49 2H:
A pair of Terrance Williams free throws cut the lead to 4, but Villanova answered with a Jermaine Samuels layup and Connor Gillespie 3. That just might do it.
Villanova 54, Michigan 48, 3:32 2H:
Another Eli Brooks 3-point basket pulls Michigan within two possessions, and then the Wolverines draw a charge on the end of the floor. Wolverines are going to get the ball back with an opportunity to draw closer. Give them credit. They’re not going away.
Villanova’s just 8 of 28 from 3, another reason for this game staying close.
Villanova 49, Michigan 41, 7:52 2H:
A wild first weekend of the men’s NCAA Tournament that produced seven overtime games —tying the all-time record for most overtime games in an entire tournament — has fans hoping for more in the second weekend.
It will start with the first four games of the Sweet 16, played on Thursday, as both the South and West regionals will each move two teams onto the Elite Eight.
A pair of No. 1 seeds (Gonzaga Bulldogs and Arizona Wildcats) and a pair of No. 2 seeds (Villanova Wildcats and Duke Blue Devils) will take the court Thursday, while the lone double-digit seed to play will be the No. 11 Michigan Wolverines.

Wildcats are showing no sign of giving up this lead. Caleb Daniels with an easy layup on an out-of-bounds play, and fouled. He’s headed to the free-throw line after the media timeout, with a chance to put Villanova up 9. Michigan’s minus-6 in the turnover category, and getting beat on the offensive glass.
Hunter Dickinson is back, though, so buckle up. This game should tighten.

While many will be watching No. 1 overall seed Gonzaga, keep an eye on Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski’s 26th, and final, appearance in the NCAA Sweet 16. It is a classic matchup of offense vs. defense in the West Region semifinal in San Francisco.
The Blue Devils are scoring better than 80 points per game, freshman star Paolo Banchero is at the top of his game and the 7-foot-1 Mark Williams has been great on both ends of the court.
Texas Tech’s top 10 field-goal defense and scoring defense can cover for its offensive shortcomings. Never mind the school tournament-record 97 points the Red Raiders scored against Montana State in the first round. The 59-53 win over Notre Dame was a truer picture of how coach Mark Adams’ rugged team plays.

They trailed No. 16 Georgia State halfway through the second half of their first-round game and also trailed No. 9 Memphis by 10 points at halftime in the second round. They ultimately came back in the second half to get the four-point win.
Much like Arkansas, it hasn’t been flashy, but Gonzaga made it to the Sweet 16 for the fifth straight year and still has a chance to make it back to the title game for the second year in a row.

Villanova 34, Michigan 31, 15:36 2H:
Not much has changed so far. Michigan still can’t hit free throws, neither team is knocking down shots at high clip, and the Wolverines continue to (curiously) run their offense through Moussa Diabate. Hunter Dickinson has been a non-factor so far in the second half.
Fast and furious pace down the stretch there, but Michigan gave Villanova too many good looks on the perimeter. Back-to-back 3s from Samuels and Collin Gillespie gave the ‘cats a 5-point lead, while a Moussa Diabate lay-in helped eat into the deficit.
A not-so-bad half for Michigan, who’s clearly in this game, but they have some things to clean up here.
