Elite 8: MI vs. Florida State tip-off time/point spread revealed

MI held A&M to 12-of-32 shooting from the floor in the first half, double-teaming the Aggies and getting hands in shooters' faces.

The Wolverines had 12 steals in the game, led by Zavier Simpson with a career-high six. "So it's a really good feeling to keep dancing". "We're just proud to be at MI - the greatest university in the world!"

Texas A&M saw their NCAA Tournament run ended on Thursday in emphatic fashion. "Let's just watch her grow and mature".

The game, taking place in Los Angeles, comes after the Wolverines beat Houston last weekend on a buzzer-beating 3-point shot from Jordan Poole.

The Wolverines couldn't miss.

STAR OF THE GAME: Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman was the best choice among several MI candidates. MI responded by hitting 14-of-24 from downtown and building a comfortable first half lead that lasted the remainder of the game. Senior guard Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman (24 points, seven assists, five rebounds) nailed four of the seven he took. The top scorer for MI this season has been Mo Wagner. The Ramblers' first 10 points came on layups. By the end of the night, MI had knocked down 14 of 24 3-pointers and handed A&M its worst loss of the season and biggest NCAA tournament defeat. If he had, it would have swished.

"A&M is a football school so coming over here, I know we had a lot of fans hoping to see our basketball team make a name for themselves, but unfortunately it couldn't happen", said A&M Senior David Hartmann. The Big Ten Tournament run included wins over No. 2 Michigan State and No. 8 Purdue to capture coach John Beilein's second conference title. They also aren't a great defensive rebounding team, ranking 231nationally. He proved his usual defensive nightmare, while slashing through the Aggies like a lightning bolt through a cattle drive. "It seemed like everything they shot went in".

Wagner played his best half of the tournament during the opening half on Thursday, as the 6-foot-11 big man stayed out of foul trouble and outplayed Texas A&M center Tyler Davis.

Marius van der Westhuizen REMOVED From Ireland Vs England Game
Woodward believes one of the primary reasons for England's fatigue was last summer's British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand. Hartley missed the France game through injury and was replaced by Jamie George, who is back on the bench.

MI shot a blazing 62 percent from the floor, made 14 of 24 from beyond the arc and turned the ball over just six times against what was supposedly a good Aggies defense.

Michigan's defense is going to be the difference here. "We really value the assist as much as the shot.

The 12 offensive rebounds they're getting is as high a number as we've seen this year", Beilein said Thursday in Los Angeles. "Our stops were the key. You've just got to take what the defense gives you". "Every day. And that's one of those things when we're out on that floor, when we shoot it, we know it's gonna have a chance to go in, because we rep it every day".

"Their defense is terrific". The Wolverines scored 99 points and won by 27 points. "Somebody's going to win four in a row".

"I think we'll be ready when we get there".

There's no question that the Seminoles are deep - maybe even the deepest team left in the field - but they lack star power. "They need to believe they do deserve it, and go get it". Braian Angola and Phil Cofer have the talent to turn in a big performance but will need to get into rhythm early on in order to keep MI on its toes.

"Abuse people like we always do", Texas A&M sophomore forward Robert Williams said Wednesday.
