Michigan and Michigan State both advance to Sweet 16
It's on to the Sweet Sixteen for the Michigan Wolverines and the Michigan State Spartans in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. Michigan held off Texas 79 to 65.
Michigan Coach John Beilein says the win again shows the similarities this year's Wolverines squad has to last year's team, which finished second in the NCAA.
"This team has an attitude that is similar to that team," Beilei said, "About just picking themselves when things don't go well, like Glenn Robinson, Jordan Morgan, Nik, they've been making these big plays all year long. Spike Albrecht had a huge shot. There's another guy ready to step up all time. That's where the similarities are."
Michigan's next game is Friday in Indianapolis, against either Mercer or Tennesee.
Michigan State survived a second-half rally by Harvard to win 80-73. Brandon Dawson scored a career high 26 points for the Spartans.
Michigan State's next game will be the winner of the game between Virginia and Memphis.
