Its been an up and down year in the Big Ten for the fourth seeded Michigan Wolverines who were ranked number one at a point this season. For the Kansas Jayhawks meanwhile, it's been mostly up as they ran roughshod over the Big 12 during the conference season. When the two meet in the Sweet 16 though, it'll be two teams who are rolling in the NCAA Tournament and looking to keep that momentum going.
It seems appropriate that such a huge match-up will take place in Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, home to the largest video board pretty much anywhere. Both teams score an awful lot of points but it's Kansas who has a big advantage on glass.
The Jayhawks already have a big feather in their cap with a win over the North Carolina Tar Heels and former head coach Roy Williams. Travis Releford has continued to play well throughout the tournament, posting double digits in each game so far. Michigan meanwhile has cruised past South Dakota St. and Virginia Commonwealth and have had at least two players cross the 20 point divide in each game. Glenn Robinson III and Tim Hardaway Jr. have been putting in yeoman's work for the Wolverines while Mitch McGary has been solid as well.
