Big Ten Tournament bracket

While the Wolverines have won back-to-back tournament championships in the Big Ten, in terms of regular-season titles, UM has gone without since 2014. Jon Teske had just three rebounds all game.

This epic duel at the Breslin Center is the final regular-season contest for both crews, and the victor of this encounter will capture, at the minimum, a share of the league's regular-season crown. Over the past two years, the SportsLine Projection Model has returned almost $4,200 to $100 players on its top-rated college basketball picks. As a true point guard, Winston showed the uncanny ability to score and yet also involve his teammates.

For Michigan, it was a crushing defeat.

Although he isn't the quickest or most explosive player at the position, Winston plays hard and smart at both ends of the court.

Winston opted for rival Michigan State, where he contributed more as a passer than a scorer his freshman year. All five MI starters scored in double figures in that game, with freshman Ignas Brazdeikis leading the way with 21 points.

In the rematch, Winston flipped a game that wasn't going the home team's way.

Jussie Smollett Indicted On 16 Felony Counts By Chicago Grand Jury
Police say they have a cheque, signed by Mr Smollett, which showed that he had agreed to pay the brothers $3500. Smollett received eight counts for what he told a police officer and eight more for what he told a detective.

Winston's success as a passer continued in his sophomore season, when he led the Big Ten in assists again with 241. The Terrapins shot 68.8 percent from the field in the third quarter.

It will be Senior Night at the Breslin Center, so Michigan State would love to send off Goins and Matt McQuaid with one more win over Michigan and a Big Ten title. However, the highly seeded Spartans bowed out of the NCAA Tournament in a disappointing second-round loss to Syracuse. It looked like MI was going to open things up and put the Spartans away. And despite injuries, they've risen to the challenge.

Obviously, winning at the Breslin Center won't be easy.

Kaila Charles made two free throws with 10.3 seconds left to help No. 8 Maryland top MI 73-72 on Saturday for the program's 1,000th victory. Michigan State SHOULD probably be a bigger favorite here, which makes the line look a bit unusual. Cassius Winston had a huge game with 27 points, including knocking down 13 of 14 free throws. On Jan. 28, the Wolverines were 10th in the conference standings. The Spartans are favored by four points, with the over-under for total points set at 135.5 in the latest odds.

However, the Wolverines also have a great chance to cover the Michigan vs. Michigan State spread on Saturday evening. He made other players better.

If Purdue falls in that match-up, whichever group succeeds between Michigan State and Michigan is your outright conference regular-season champion. Anything less than making the Sweet 16 this year would be a disappointment.
