The fifth-seeded Wolverines (25-7) face fourth-seeded Nebraska on Friday at Madison Square Garden.

The Wolverines were easy winners in their lone meeting with Michigan State this season, beating the then No.4-ranked Wolverines 82-72 on January 13 at Breslin Student Events Center in East Lansing, Mich.

USC vs. No. 16 Stanford (9 p.m.): The Trojans are another PAC-12 team on the bubble, and a win against the Cardinal would strengthen their case for an at-large bid.

"Unfortunately, we couldn't make a shot in the first quarter, and it just really was frustrating", McKeown said.

WHO WAS THERE: Former Atlanta Braves pitcher and current FOX MLB analyst John Smoltz took in the game. We've beaten teams that we should beat.

The Hoosiers have won nine of their last 10 games but still lack a marquee victory over a ranked team. Big Ten, 10-3-1 ATS in their last 14 neutral site games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.

And coaches around the conference would agree with that assessment.

California vs. No. 9 UCLA (5 p.m.): A win over a top 10 team would likely guarantee a tournament berth for the Bears.

Had it not been for a few fans and a handful of Big Ten signs scattered around the perimeter of the area, you probably wouldn't have even known a conference tournament was going on. MI was left out in 2003 and in missed in 2005 after going 10-6, while Ohio State missed in 2016 after finishing 11-7. Four leagues - the Big South, MVC, Atlantic Sun and Big Ten - will determine their autobids Sunday.

It's a disappointing end to a season that saw the program set a record number of conference wins.

"We don't think [about missing the NCAA Tournament], Scaife said".

MI even did well from the foul line, making 12-of-15.

The Huskers will nearly definitely not make the NCAA Tournament because of the loss.

The Big Ten isn't the usual Big Ten this season in terms of depth.

The conference crunched its regular season schedule by a week to accommodate the league tournament, which began Wednesday in NY. Isaiah Roby had a team-high 18 points and was 50 percent from the field.

Nebraska at that point, and in many other points throughout, looked confused. They're 1-6 in Quadrant 1 games, and 3-9 against Quadrant 1 and 2 teams. Now, the No. 5 seed Wolverines have a rematch with No. 1 seed Michigan State Saturday afternoon, which is seeking its own revenge after falling at home to Michigan earlier this season.

"At the end of the day, if Quad 1 is the holy grail, that's a tough deal", Miles said.

ANN ARBOR - As winter's thaw commences, college basketball's holy grail beckons. If either North Carolina (No. 2 seed, East) or Duke (No. 2 seed, Midwest) wins the ACC, that champion would have a good chance. Outside of that, the Cornhuskers haven't done much. A win over Maryland would be just that.

Floyd was 8 of 9 from the floor and had three assists, two blocks and a steal. KenPom, BPI and Sagarin are all in the 50s.

Right now, Nebraska is the third team listed among the first four out. Moreover, there are teams around or behind the Cornhuskers (UCLA, Syracuse, Washington, etc.) that can jump them and move into the field. "So it's going to be hard", said senior guard Evan Taylor.

"I'm certain that Nebraska was probably secretly rooting for us today, because as you study this thing, it's about getting good wins", Beilein said.
