Michigan's Red-Hot 2nd Half Shooting Leads To Win

Michigan's Red-Hot 2nd Half Shooting Leads To Win

Seventh-seeded MI hit 11 of 16 three-point field goal attempts in the second half after a cold-shooting first to score a 92-91 win over No. 10 Oklahoma State in a Midwest Region first-round game in Indianapolis. He scored 19 of Michigan's 51 second-half points.

"He's the head dog of this entire program so to see him laughing and joking lightens the mood around here", said senior point guard Derrick Walton Jr.

Evans finished with 23 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds.

No. 3 OR 93, No. 14 Iona 77: With star big man Chris Boucher cheering in a bulky knee brace from the sidelines, Tyler Dorsey scored 24 points to lead four players in double figures, and No. 3 seed OR beat 14th-seeded Iona 93-77 Friday in the first-round of the NCAA Tournament's Midwest Region.

Nuno says Porto face different comeback to Barcelona
Porto were presented with a chance to to level matters after 50 minutes, but Soares's effort sailed inches wide of the upright. Juventus advanced to the Champions League Quarterfinals on Tuesday after comfortably beating Porto in the Round of 16.

Wilson added 19 for the Big Ten tournament champion Wolverines, who extended their winning streak to six, including four in the Big Ten tourney.

Dillard, who has become a key contributor since the Big 12 Conference season opened in late December, is expecting a lot of family and friends at Friday's game. A bracket famous for its madness, though, produced the exact opposite to start. The only disappointment is that it was played at such a high level that it's unfortunate that one of these teams, Oklahoma State in this case, has to be sent home after just one game.

MI led 41-40 following a fast-paced first half.

James Sanchez got MI on the board with a power play tally at 10:19 of the second period for the 4-1 score. "We felt we took the pedal off the metal a little bit in the second, but after a good first period it put us in a good spot to be successful the rest of the game".

Juan Thompson, Suspect Behind Several Jewish Center Bomb Threats, Charged With Cyberstalking
Louis accused of threatening Jewish organizations nationwide has been indicted in NY on one count of cyberstalking. Thompson, 32, is too much of a threat to the community to be released without any restrictions, U.S.

I'll tell you who: Anybody who has been assigned to guard Walton. The pace was prone to give an invested fan on either side a heart attack, while casual observers were happy to grab some popcorn and watch. Not only did 68 percent of the money on that game come in on the Wolverines, but of all the games on Friday, the Michigan-Oklahoma State game had received the most action of the morning, with 17 percent of all tournament wagers that had been placed as of 11 a.m. ET being on that game.

Davon Reed has been the team leader with 15 points and 4.8 rebounds per game while Ja'Quan Newton is putting up 13.4 points per contest.

The Midwest Region is full of capable and tradition rich schools and the winner between these two squads has the privilege of facing the victor in the second-seeded Louisville versus fifteen seed Jacksonville State on Sunday afternoon. That "Chicago's college team" had suffered 79 straight seasons of futility? They finished the regular season with a 6-2 run and were looking forward to the Big 10 tournament. The team relies heavily on freshmen as Miles Bridges leads the team in points (16.7) and rebounds (8.3).

Russian spies among 4 indicted for 2014 Yahoo hack
In December the company announced an even larger hack involving 1 billion user accounts which took place a year earlier in 2013. The indictments come as US officials are still investigating possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

But Michigan was absolutely on fire from downtown in the second half, preventing the Cowboys from riding an efficient offensive performance. Best case scenario for them is a game in the 50's. Oklahoma State's Phil Forte has played well recently, especially from the three-point line. They both hit better than 42% of their looks from deep, which clears the lane for shifty superstar Juwan Evans to either pass or cut through and score himself.
