Women's basketball: Big Ten well-represented in postseason play

Women's basketball: Big Ten well-represented in postseason play

"He makes things easier for all of us because he attracts so much attention, which frees up everyone else".

I'll tell you who: Anybody who has been assigned to guard Walton. I thought the first half, we were very good at defending the 3-point line, trying to keep them in front of us. He scored 19 of Michigan's 51 second-half points.

"Defensemen, forwards getting guys out from in front of the net, letting me see the puck", Jones said. The Wolverines left the next day for the Big Ten Tournament in Washington D.C., bused straight to arena, played in practice gear and won four straight to win the Big Ten Tournament. The shot went in and that was the end of the game: MI 92 - Oklahoma State 91.

Since they don't really have a legit defensive presence down low, MI allows teams to take short looks and tries to limit three-point shot opportunities, which has led to a block percentage of 7.2 (bottom-five in the field) and an extremely low foul rate.

"Michigan is playing at a high level right now".

Five Michigan players made at least one 3, led by Derrick Walton Jr., they latest point guard to haunt the Cowboys. It was close the rest of the way.

John Beilein hates the reputation that his team lives and dies by the three-pointer. "We're used to it, but we settled a little bit". I think overall, there were just questions too about the tournament.

Abbas to Greenblatt: Peace deal is possible
A USA statement says Greenblatt told Netanyahu that Trump hopes to work out an approach to settlement building that is consistent with the US goal of reaching a peace deal.

After one of his second-half 3-pointers, MI point guard Derrick Walton Jr. pounded his chest and took a few steps backward down the court.

A 12-4 MI run allowed the Wolverines to keep the Cowboys at a short arm-length distance. "It gets hard to take everything away from them". Best case scenario for them is a game in the 50's.

No. 8 Arkansas 77, No. 9 Seton Hall 71: Moses Kingsley and Jaylen Barford scored 23 and 20 points, respectively, pacing Arkansas in a tight game.

Oklahoma State lost a tough one to MI, but the Cowboys' financial backers won in the process.

Guard Al Freeman led Baylor with 21 points, reserve forward Terry Maston added 19 and nine rebounds, forward Jo Lual-Acuil had 16 and forward Johnathan Motley finished with 15 points and a team-leading 10 rebounds. "Both teams started making shots". Tipoff is scheduled for 12:15 PM (ET) and the game will be televised on CBS. Oklahoma State became the first team since Maryland in 1985-86 to earn an NCAA tournament berth after an 0-6 start in conference play. Meanwhile, the Cowboys rank 231st nationally in three point defense.

MI narrowly escaped its first-round matchup with Oklahoma State in a 92-91 thriller on Friday that is a front-runner for best game of the first-round after a Thursday lacking in excitement. The Wolverines entered NCAA tournament play averaging the fewest turnovers in the country (9.42 per contest).

Michigan State will make its 20th consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament under Coach Tom Izzo, celebrating the nation's third-longest active streak.
