NCAA tournament breakdown: Previewing Friday's Sweet 16 games

March 28, 2014

Why Michigan will win: The Big Ten regular season champion is exceptional in every facet offensively, making nearly 40% of its three-pointers, 53% of its shots inside the arc and 76% of its free throws. The Wolverines also don't turn the ball over very often (9.3 a game), making them one of the most efficient teams in the country. Sophomore guard Nik Stauskas (17.4 ppg) has made 13 of his last 28 attempts from three-point range, and only four times this season has he been held to single figures scoring. Though the Wolverines are young, they have a huge experience advantage from last year's run to the championship game, and John Beilein is one of the nation's best coaches with a 15-7 record in the NCAA tournament. Michigan proved against Texas in the Round of 32 they could handle a team with a significant size advantage that thrives on the offensive glass much like the Vols.
