After pulling off the upset over No. 2 seed Louisville in the Second Round of the NCAA Tournament, the Wolverines have advanced to the Sweet 16 where they will face the Oregon Ducks.
Both squads are actually quite similar in the fact that they stretch teams out on offense with (usually) accurate and consistent three-point shooting. Should one team falter on the defensive end, that could spell their doom as well as victory for the other team.
Personally, if Michigan can produce an offensive outing like we all know they are capable of producing, they may be almost unbeatable. One must note that Michigan defeated Louisville last week on what was frankly a sub-par offensive performance mainly, their atrocious first half.
The winner of this Sweet 16 matchup will be set for a date in the Elite 8 with the winner of Kansas/Purdue. We see the Wolverines doing just enough here. The cinderella run shall continue.
PREDICTION: Michigan 80, Oregon 76
