2013 NCAA Tournament: Two Big Ten Teams in the Sweet 16 So Far
Michigan was able to completely dominate the No. 5 VCU Rams, while Michigan State had its own blowout game against the No. 6 Memphis Tigers.
Gary Harris led the Spartans to victory with 23 points, while Mitch McGary had a big game himself for the Wolverines, scoring 21 points and grabbing 14 boards. These two Big Ten teams are showing why their conference has been the best in college basketball all season long.
Although both Michigan teams could be the higher seed in the next round if Kansas and Duke both win, no one should want to play either team at this point in the dance. Both the Spartans and Wolverines looked just as good as anyone today, so deeper runs in the dance could be in store.
Other Big Ten teams that still have to take the court are the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes, No. 1 Indiana Hoosiers, No. 11 Minnesota Gophers and No. 7 Illinois Fighting Illini. All four of those teams will play tomorrow and you would expect at least one of them would join Michigan and Michigan State in the Sweet 16.
Other than the Wisconsin Badgers, the Big Ten has looked pretty good in the 2013 NCAA Tournament so far. Time to see how many teams in this conference will make it to the Sweet 16.
