Michigan Basketball: Five Wolverines Earn Big Ten Honors

The Michigan Wolverines celebrate with the trophy after the Wolverines defeated the Wisconsin Badgers to win the Big Ten Basketball Tournament Championship game

The Wolverines have rebounded from their loss to Michigan State on February 24 with a dominant 82-53 win over Nebraska and an impressive win on the road over Maryland as an underdog. Michigan State took advantage of it.

Fernando, who is averaging 14 points per game, finished the regular season tied for first in the Big Ten with Purdue center Matt Haarms in field goal percentage (.624), second in rebounding (10.5 per game) behind Minnesota forward Jordan Murphy and tied for third in blocks (1.9 a game). It looked like MI was going to open things up and put the Spartans away.

Typically, a lower-seeded team makes a deep run at the Big Ten Tournament, so things should be pretty exciting once again if that tradition holds up.

"Michigan was bothering him in the first half", coach Tom Izzo said.

So who wins Michigan State vs. Michigan?

When MSU is not turning the ball over at a ridiculous rate and being smart with it, they can out-score anyone in college basketball.

Ex-Trump campaign boss Paul Manafort jailed
The charges stem from an inquiry into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation to win the 2016 election. The charges stem from Manafort's lobbying and consulting work - and the millions of dollars he made from it - in Ukraine.

MI held Bruno Fernando and Anthony Cowan Jr.to a combined 9-for-28 shooting in that game. There were multiple times where Jon Teske looked lost out there.

Second chance opportunities kept Michigan State in the game in the first half and they helped put Michigan away in the second. This is a rivalry game with a ton relying on the final outcome.

Unfortunately for MI fans, that wasn't the case. Smith averaged 11.5 points and 6.7 rebounds. Sometimes, the ball just doesn't bounce your way giving you a perfectly valid excuse for missing out on rebounds. Not only was it Senior Day for the Spartans but the victor of this contest would be co-champions of the Big Ten regular season.

The 2019 Big Ten Tournament will tip off on Wednesday, March 13 as the No. 12 Illinois Fighting Illini take on the No. 13 Nebraska Cornhuskers, followed by the No. 11 Penn State Nittany Lions facing the No. 14 Northwestern Wildcats.

"He just gets into these little areas and then he's got that floater game that very few players have", MI head coach John Beilein said, per The State News. His players, hats turned backward, dressed in their new Big Ten championship T-shirts, stood off to the side, ready for the celebration to ensue. MI fans can hope that this year won't be any different.

Michigan: Nobody wants to see Michigan in the NCAA Tournament. Only time will tell, however, which means we'll have to wait about five days to find out.
