Throughout the regular season, there was a lot of debate as to whether Michigan or Michigan State was the best team in the Big Ten. Watson scored 23 points and made five 3-pointers.

3-point shooting has been a key statistic for MI basketball all season and against the Hawkeyes, UM knocked down 10 treys, with Ignas Brazdeikis, Eli Brooks, Jordan Poole and Zavier Simpson all hitting two each.

The two teams must now wait to learn their NCAA Tournament match-ups when they are announced later on this evening. Zavier Simpson added 10 assists. MI shot 10 for 27 from 3-point range, including 7 for 16 in the first half.

Glynn Watson Jr. put on a show for the Huskers and with a slew of step-back jumpers, from both 2 and 3-point range, Watson carried the Huskers back into the lead against nationally-ranked Wisconsin the fourth seed in the Big Ten tournament.

I am not quite sure why their performance was how it was. "Then afterwards I felt I was really struggling with the rear". It's likely he may have run over debris from Robert Kubica and Pierre Gasly's first-corner collision.

This time around, MI gave a double-digit lead away in the second half but weathered the storm.

Standing in the way of Michigan State are John Beilein's Wolverines, who have won this event the past two years. Poole then appeared to get bumped by Winston - Michigan State had a foul to give - as he launched a long 3 off the dribble, but there was no call.

Michigan State forward Kyle Ahrens was taken from the court on a stretcher with a left leg injury in the first half.

Michigan State: The Spartans head to the tournament with high hopes, though their rotation figures to be a little thinner after Ahrens went down.
