Big 10 Tournament: Michigan vs Iowa

Michigan Men's Basketball will take on Iowa as the number nine seed in the Big 10 Tournament at noon in Indianapolis. The two teams split their matchups during the regular season with each team picking up a road victory. Iowa defeated Michigan 68-60 in the first game on January 19th. More people would remember that game for a certain football recruit who was in attendance (for all of 10 minutes) while on his official visit. In the second meeting, the Wolverines rallied from a 27-16 halftime deficit to go on and win by a score of 60-52. That win was the second in Michigan's season-high three game win streak.

On paper, this is a very even matchup between the #8 and #9 seeds. If you combine the scores from both regular season games, the teams tied 120-120. The winner of Thursdays game will go on to play #1 seeded Wisconsin at noon on Friday.

WCBN's Rob Salaman and Stuart Zaas will be in Indianapolis with the call. You (might) be able to listen live by following the link for the sports stream from our website:
