NCAA Tournament Scores: Michigan Keeps Duke Busy In First Half

The Duke Blue Devils are beating the Michigan Wolverines with a trip to the 2011 NCAA Tournament's Sweet Sixteen on the line, but not by much of a score. Solid shooting and a strong defensive stretch have Michigan down by only four in a 37-33 game.

Kyle Singler leads Duke with 10 points and five boards, while Evan Smotrycz has 11 points and a rebound for the Wolverines. Duke is shooting a blazing 59 percent, but went the last four minutes of the half with nothing but a handful of free throws to show.

Speaking of free throws, Michigan finally got to shoot a few! Of course, they're playing Duke in North Carolina, so they've only gotten to shoot five, but still! The Wolverines famously put away Tennessee without hitting a single free throw, so for them to knock down four in 20 minutes is progress.
