Bracket projection: Michigan
Michigan's guards will have to lead them past a possible early exit
The Wolverines shared the Big Ten regular-season title on merit. They aren't as good as Michigan State or Ohio State, but they won enough of the games that mattered to hang a banner. And I think Michigan has the right blend to win two games in this event, although a likely third-round match up against Temple is a coin flip at best.
