Michigan Edges Out Tennessee In Big Dance

Posted: Updated:

Jordan Morgan scored 15 points and Nik Stauskas had 14 including a key free throw to help Michigan hold on for a 73-71 victory over Tennessee in Friday's first Midwest Regional semifinal.

 The second-seeded Wolverines now play either Louisville, who they lost to in last year's national championship game, or 2012 national champion Kentucky Sunday. 

The Wolverines (28-8) led by 15 with 10:55 to go, but committed four turnovers in the final 97 seconds. Tennessee (24-13) cut the lead to 72-71 and had a chance to take the lead, but Jarnell Stokes was called for an offensive foul with 6 seconds left.

 

Stauskas then made 1 of 2 free throws and Tennessee's long desperation heave was off the mark. 

Jordan McRae scored 24 to lead the 11th-seeded Vols.
