MI vs. Wisconsin: Score, Twitter Reaction for Big Ten Championship 2017

The Wisconsin Badgers and the Michigan Wolverines will square off in the Big Ten Tournament Championship game Sunday, March 12, after each team worked their way through the conference tournament bracket.

That was the explanation from Mark Hollis, the chair of the NCAA Men's Basketball Committee, on Sunday night after the field was revealed and the Wolverines were a No. 7 seed in the Midwest Region. Wisconsin enters the tournament as the No. 2 seed, earning a first-round bye along with Minnesota.

And so, the first Big Ten Tournament in the nation's capital ended with a surprise champion cutting down the nets at Verizon Center.

It's March Madness, the greatest time of the year. This will be their third NCAA Tournament appearance under Larrañaga with the Hurricanes advancing to the Sweet 16 in both 2013 and 2016.

The Badgers play at 2 p.m. Sunday against No. 8 MI (23-11), an 84-77 victor over No. 4 Minnesota earlier Saturday. Today, during the NCAA tournament selection show, Miami was announced as the 8th seed in the Midwest Region.

Wisconsin led wire-to-wire, jumping out to a 15-3 lead in the first seven minutes after Hayes made a nice save on the baseline and hit Bronson Koenig for a 3-pointer. Malcolm Drumwright leads JSU with 12.6 points per game, one of four Gamecock players that average in double figures.

This will showcase an environment where there are opportunities available for women and other minority groups to flourish. Women have plenty of purchasing power and can show with their wallets how much we contribute to the economy.

It didn't take long for MI to regain control of the game.

Northwestern shot 45.7% from three-point range (16 of 35) and 57.7% overall (56 of 97) in its first two tournament games, victories over Rutgers and Maryland. "So I think they're playing probably more relaxed and looser".

Wisconsin 70, IN 60 • Showing signs that its late-season swoon might be over, Wisconsin slowed Indiana's offense and used Ethan Happ's 14 points and 12 rebounds to beat the Hoosiers.

The Hokies (22-10, 10-8 ACC) have experienced a resurgent season under head coach Buzz Williams, and are headed back to the Big Dance for the first time since 2007. The last time they failed to make the field was 1998. The Gophers tied the game with about 13 minutes to play, but the Wolverines responded with a 9-2 burst that gave them a lead they didn't relinquish again. "At the offensive end, we're not quite as consistent as we are defensively, and if we share the ball well and get some assists and don't turn it over very much, we'll be a tough team to beat".

In fact, MI began the tournament with a first-round bye, facing off against IL in the second round, showing up just a couple hours before the game, demolishing the Illini. Now they needed to do the little things to extend it.
