ESPN's 2nd Half Prediction For Michigan-Florida State

MI has looked like one of the best teams in the country since their run to win the Big-10 Championship and has been led by their defense which ranks 8th in scoring defense and is giving up just an average of 59.0 ppg in the NCAA Tournament.

The Ramblers will never tell you they would have preferred to face MI, but it may be a more favorable opponent for them. Florida State went 9-9 in ACC play and lost in the first round of the conference tournament for its fifth defeat in eight games overall, but still made the NCAA field and went on a remarkable run.

On the other side of the floor, MI is 60% from the floor, and have had the better defense in the early going, although FSU has tightened things up on D from the early going.

Loyola-Chicago continued its improbable postseason run, beating Kansas State 78-62 on Saturday night to advance to its first Final Four in 55 years. You're going to want to tune in for the second half.

Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton's strategy late in the team's 58-54 loss to MI in the Elite Eight surprised many fans and analysts, who questioned why the Seminoles didn't foul in that situation. You couldn't be sure who would win, but you could be sure neither team would score 99 as MI did against Texas A&M. MI was just a bit better down the stretch and came away with a 58-54 victory over FSU before a packed and very loud Staples Center.

MI got a rebound with 58 seconds left and called timeout with 50 seconds left in the game and 22 left on the shot clock. MI used a 9-0 run to start the 2nd half to create some separation from the Seminoles and held off a late Florida State charge after taking a 54-44 lead with just 2:26 left in regulation.

"You think the game came down to the final seconds of the game?"

Moe Wagner added 12 points as the Wolverines (32-7) earned their 13th consecutive victory by persevering through a defense-dominated second half and holding off a late charge from the Seminoles (23-12), who had already knocked off three higher-seeded opponents on their school's longest NCAA Tournament run since 1993. Junior guard Charles Matthews led MI with 17 points and eight rebounds. They rushed threes when they didn't need to, they fouled when they didn't need to, and then most inexplicably of all, they opted not to foul despite still having a shot to win the game. The Seminoles shot 31.4 percent, just 23.5 percent (4 of 17) from deep.

But the Wolverines' Charles Matthews hit a jumper, Zavier Simpson hit a layup and Duncan Robinson buried a three from the corner for a 54-44 lead with 2:24 to go.

Incredibly, the Wolverines, one of the best 3-point shooting teams in the country, shot 4-of-22 from beyond the arc in the Elite 8.

"I don't really know who she is", Matthews said. That spurt put UM up 38-28 about midway through the second half.

The Wolverines had made 6-of-14 shots at the 7:59 mark and only 1-of-7 triples against FSU's stout defense, but still tied it on two Wagner free throws.
