Wolverines exit in defensive struggle
Written by Matt Pargoff   

 

Michigan’s defense has been its strength all season long, but on Thursday evening, the Wolverines’ met their match. Facing off in the Sweet 16 against Texas Tech, the Maize and Blue struggled to score throughout, falling from the NCAA Tournament in a 63-44.

The two teams each managed only six points in the first 10 minutes of play, but as the Red Raiders began to find their offensive footing, the Wolverines continued to struggle. In fact, it took nearly 30 minutes of play for Michigan to make its first jump shot, and U-M’s first 19 three-pointers failed to reach their mark.

Ignas Brazdeikis led the way for Michigan with 17 points, while Charles Matthews had 12.

Ending the season at 30-7, the Wolverines finished tied for the third most wins in a season in program history, perfectly matching the record of the 1989 championship team.
