Michigan draws a No. 4 seed and a date with Ohio (not that Ohio) in Round Two of the NCAA Tournament


A day after being eliminated from the Big Ten Tournament by Ohio State Saturday, Michigan learned their fate for the NCAA Tournament on Sunday.

The Big Ten co-regular season champions, Michigan earned themselves a No. 4 seed in the Midwest Region and take on No. 13 Ohio out of the MAC. Tip off for this Round 2 matchup is set for Friday at 7:20PM ET from Nashville, Tennessee.

“We’re playing Ohio University now,” said coach John Beilein, who has joined Michigan football coach Brady Hoke in referring to Ohio State as ‘Ohio.’

“It’s a great university down in Athens, Ohio.”

The No. 4 seed is the highest seed given to Michigan in the Tournament since 1998 when they were a No. 3 seed.

Michigan is 3-0 all time against Ohio.
