The Michigan basketball team takes on Wisconsin on Sunday evening. Here’s how you can find the game on TV or watch online.
The Michigan basketball team has just two games remaining in the 2015-16 regular season: tonight at Wisconsin then Iowa at home next weekend. Following the regular season they’ll head to Indianapolis for the Big Ten Tournament.
The Wolverines currently sit in sixth place in the Big Ten (tied with Purdue and Ohio State at 10-6) and could conceivably win a top-four seed for the conference tournament, but they’d have to win both remaining games and still get help with losses from teams ahead of them.
But Michigan doesn’t really have the luxury of worrying about other teams right now. They need to focus on themselves and winning the games in front of them in order to secure an at-large bid in the NCAA Tournament (assuming they’re not going to count on winning the Big Ten Tournament).
Joe Lunardi’s most recent bracketology update had the Michigan basketball team as a No. 9 seed in the NCAA Tournament. That gives them a little bit of breathing room — they’re currently not listed in the “last four byes” or “last four in” categories — but the Wolverines still appear to be far from safe.
One more victory gets Michigan to the 20-win threshold (against Division I competition, they opened the season against Division II Northern Michigan). That would put them on the cusp of clinching a spot, but two wins probably secures a bid come selection Sunday.
