Interesting: UM 11th most picked team to win tourney on ESPN

I was just looking at teams picked to win by round at ESPN and fans have picked UM to win the championship 1.1% of the time, which is 11th highest. It seems that college bball observers have been paying attention to the recent success by the team. Or it just means that UM has a lot of homer fans.

On to Ohio. I like this matchup, and we'll be ready.

EDIT:  I'm not afraid of Craft, and have confidence in Stauskas, Albrecht and Walton not to turn over the ball. Facing the 2-3 defense is only good practice for Michigan. I really want to see Michigan beat Ohio a second time. After today's stinker, Michigan will press their advantage and not let up on the gas in the least. And we're still playing for a 1-seed.
