Michigan State Basketball Earns No. 9 Seed In NCAA Tournament, Will Play No. 8 Miami In First Round

Less than an hour after winning the Big Ten Tournament championship, the Michigan basketball team earned a No. 7 seed in the Midwest Region of the NCAA Tournament.

The Wolverines will play No. 10 Oklahoma State on Friday in the First Round of the tournament.

It looked like an NCAA Tournament bid was a long shot for Michigan after a home loss to Ohio State dropped it to 14-9 on the season. But a 10-2 finish, including two wins each over regular-season champion Purdue and runner-up Wisconsin, put Michigan safely in the field.

ClickOnDetroit.com will have pre-tournament coverage on the Wolverines throughout the week leading up to the First Round.
