The 2014 NCAA Tournament live stream and TV schedule for March 28 will feature four more Sweet 16 games as teams battle it out for a shot at advancing to the NCAA championship. So far the Big Ten is proving that they may be the strongest conference in basketball today.
According to a Sportsline update on March 28, Wisconsin advanced to the Elite Eight round by destroying Baylor last night 69-52, and now two more teams from the Big Ten have a shot at advancing as well tonight. The Michigan Wolverines will face Tennessee at 7:15 p.m. EST while the Michigan State Spartans will square off vs. Virginia beginning at 10:00 p.m. EST.
It is very possible that three of the final eight teams could be from the Big Ten. Add to that Minnesota has reached the Final Four of the NIT Tournament, and it is pretty safe to say that Big Ten basketball is thriving right now.
Right now the Wolverines may be glad that the Big Ten is being considered one of the toughest conferences in college hoops, but beating the 11th-seeded Volunteers is all they are really focused on.
Michigan has the offense to carry them to another NCAA Title game, however it won't be easy tonight vs. a stingy Tennessee team. The Wolverines average 74 points per game behind Big Ten player of the year Nik Stauskas (17.4) and Glenn Robinson at 13.1, but the Volunteers will be up for the challenge.
Tennessee's defense is one of the best. The Vols have held 11 straight opponents to under 70 points, including five of the eleven teams not even breaking the 50 point mark. Now that is impressive.
Las Vegas odds makers have Michigan listed as a two point favorite with the over/under number at 135.
This is going to be a battle, but after finishing 2-0 yesterday the streak will continue with the Wolverines.
Pick: Michigan -2
