"I was anxious a little bit about getting sent out west on a Thursday game, because I think we needed to get back into a routine", Izzo said in a press conference Sunday.
The Huskies enter as the lone unbeaten team and will be vying for their 12th national championship. "The truth is, there is no case". The Bears finished the regular season as the top team in their conference standings and have won 13 straight games going into the postseason.
A No. 2 or No. 3 seed is possible, but a No. 3 seed looks more likely after losing to the Buckeyes. Two of those losses came to the Cardinals. "Not that you need any motivation this time of year".
The Big Ten Tournament was played a week earlier than the other Division I men's conference tournaments, which meant head coach Tom Izzo had an unusual amount of time to reel in his team before the Big Dance, which he said was needed following the team's last outcome. Their only quadrant 1 victory of the season came against MI. That's not good news for Villanova, Xavier, Cincinnati, Gonzaga, Wichita State and Houston.
Upsets dominate the first weekend but things return to normal after that: It may not seem like it, but most years only two or three double-digit seeds reach the Sweet 16.

Last appearance: 2017, lost to Kansas in the second round. "And we believe that if you go on the court anybody has an opportunity to win and why not us and why not now". However, they lost to MI in the conference tournament semifinals.
Kind of takes some of the fun out of it, doesn't it?
Team Scoring: 81.1 points per game, 47.2 fg pct, 34.3 3-pt pct, 71.8 ft pct. The Spartans are also extremely tight defensively, giving up the lowest field goal percentage against in D-I at 36.6% shooting from the floor.
Unfortunately, some people don't see it that way. Purdue has one of the most experienced starting lineups in the country. But, really, why do they even make offensive linemen run the 40? Buffalo, Creighton, Minnesota and Oklahoma got in.
