Will you consider the 2016-17 season a success regardless of what happens in the tournament, or does this team still need to do more?
For me, I think if the team keeps playing at its current level, it should roll Okie St and give Louisville hell; the sky's the limit from there.
But, if the shots stop falling and Michigan doesn't get out of the first round, it'll sting for a while but I think I'm still going to look back on this season as a success. 20-11 during the regular season is pretty meh, but bringing home the program's first BTT Championship in 19 years (and finally being able to hang a banner) will be a great memory for a long time. Four wins in four days after a plane crash is storybook material. I say it's a success no matter what.
