The 2014 NCAA Tournament live stream and TV schedule continues on Saturday and if you are like most folks, you may be ready to set your bracket on fire! With No. 3 Duke falling to Mercer and No. 6 UMASS getting thumped by No. 11 Tennessee 86-67, the Madness of March is in full bloom. Will the same happen today when the No. 2 seed Michigan Wolverines take on the No. 7 Texas Longhorns? So far the 2014 NCAA Tournament live streaming action has been dubbed the "Year of the Upsets."
According to a Sportsline report on March 22, Michigan may have the higher seeding, but what they lack in rebounding may determine if they advance to the Sweet 16 round. The Longhorns out-rebound their opponents by an average of seven boards per game, and they average 14.9 offensive rebounds per game. That's impressive.
While Texas brings the size, The Wolverines bring the hot shooting guards, particularly Nik Stauskas.
When Stauskas is on, so are the Wolverines. The sophomore sensation has averaged almost 18 points per game this season, however in Michigan's eight losses this season, Stauskas averaged 12.8 points, shooting under 40% from the field.
Las Vegas odds makers have Michigan listed as a 5 point favorite with the over/under number listed at 140. This should be another great March Madness match-up that may come down to the last shot winning the game. In the end, the Wolverines advance to next weekend's Sweet 16 round.
Pick: Michigan -5
Fans can catch this game live on CBS or steaming live through NCAA.com/march-madness beginning at 5:15 p.m. EST.
