The Michigan Wolverines and Tennessee Volunteers have the honor of starting Friday’s collection of four Sweet 16 NCAA Tournament 2014 basketball games tonight. The Wolverines offensive presents a difficult match up for the Volunteers defense when we watch Michigan vs Tennessee online free live streaming on CBS Sports.
The Wolverines won the Big Ten title outright for the first time in 28 years this year and is now knocking on the door to a return trip to the Final Four after getting there last year. They’ve gotten this far by riding the offensive prowess of Glenn Robinson III as well as leading scorer and Big Ten player of the year Nik Stauskas.
Offense has been the key for the Wolverines all year and that likely won’t change tonight in the Tennessee Michigan game. They finished the year third in the Big Ten in scoring at 74 points per game and second in field goal percentage at 47.5 percent. Stauskas averaged 17.4 points per game while Robinson added 13.1 points of his own.
Tennessee is built to go head-to-head with powerful offenses having given up 61.4 point per game on average over the course of the season. They held five teams under 50 points and have not given up more than 70 points in a game for eleven consecutive games. Something will have to give tonight against the Wolverines.
The winner of tonight’s game will get the honor of facing either Kentucky or Louisville in the Elite Eight on Sunday. Ironically those two schools represent the last two teams to win the national championship. It won’t get any easier for the Wolverines or Volunteers, however should win, after tonight’s game.
Michigan is the favorite to win so it’s going to be hard to pick a final score that doesn’t have Tennessee with a lower score.
