Michigan are having a great season with a great squad, but could they be on upset alert against Ohio?

John Beilein finally has the Michigan Wolverines back to the level that their fans expect during most seasons. A share of the Big Ten regular season title and a 24-9 overall record was good enough for a No. 4 seed for the Wolverines. They should win on Friday, but they don't have an easy matchup.

The Ohio Bobcats were disappointing in the MAC regular season after a great non-conference season, but they made up for it with a run to the MAC tournament title, culminating in a one-point win over regular season champions Akron in the final. The Bobcats have a terrific point guard in D.J. Cooper to go along with some decent size inside, and could give Michigan a challenge.

Game Date/Time: Friday, March 16, 7:20 p.m. ET

Venue: Bridgestone Arena, Nashville, Tennessee

TV: TNT

Announcers: Ian Eagle, Jim Spanarkel, Lewis Johnson
