Prediction: The Michigan Wolverines found a way to beat Indiana in the Big Ten tournament this past week, so it's not hard to imagine they'll be riding high off that win as they enter the NCAA Tournament. Tulsa fought hard but didn't show very much during the AAC tournament, but they'll have to bring it against a talented Michigan team.

When it's all said and done, we'll take the Wolverines to win and move on to face notre Dame in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Size and athleticism will be their key to victory.
