The Michigan Wolverines got a nice draw courtesy of the NCAA Tournament committee, getting to stay in Auburn Hills, Mich., for their contest against the South Dakota State Jackrabbits.
Michigan took full advantage, beating South Dakota St. 71-56 at the Palace in Auburn Hills. It wasn't an easy game for the Wolverines, but you also never got the feeling that they were in danger of being upset by the No. 13 seed.
Glenn Robinson came out hot in the second half on the way to 21 points on 8/9 shooting.. was only slightly less brutally effective, scoring 21 on 8/13. If that wasn't enough, was 6/9 with eight rebounds and 13 points in his third start of the season. He provided defensive pressure all over the court, adding two steals and a block.
Now, the Wolverines get to face the Rams of VCU, a terrific team out of the Atlantic 10 coached by the young, energetic Shaka Smart. The Rams play one of the best presses in college basketball, choking off passing lanes and creating exactly what they call their defense; havoc.
