The Michigan basketball team takes on Minnesota in the Big Ten Tournament Semifinals on Saturday. Here’s how you can find the game on TV or watch online.
The Michigan basketball team will take on Minnesota in the Big Ten Tournament semifinals on Saturday afternoon. The Wolverines defeated top-seeded Purdue in overtime by a score of 74-70 to advance through the quarterfinals.
No. 4 seed Minnesota staved off No. 5 Michigan State 63-58 in their quarterfinal matchup despite a 20-point effort from the Spartan’s Miles Bridges. Senior center Reggie Lynch paced the Golden Gophers with 16 points.
Both Michigan and Minnesota have wrapped up at-large berths for the NCAA Tournament, but they can improve their seeding prospects with more wins in the Big Ten Tournament. ESPN currently projects Minnesota as a No. 6 seed while Michigan projects as a No. 7.
Michigan is still projected as a No. 8 seed by CBS Sports. They’ll want to win in an attempt to gain a No. 7 seed or better to avoid a potential second round matchup with a No. 1 seed.
