Michigan Wolverines' Blueprint to Win the 2013 NCAA Tournament
Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports
What will Tim Hardaway Jr. need to do in order for Michigan to win a national title?

Selection Sunday finally arrived, and the Michigan Wolverines found out they will be the No. 4 seed in the south region of the NCAA tournament bracket. Despite Michigan's recent struggles, there is still a viable blueprint to win its first national title since 1989.

The Wolverines will be playing close to home in the opening rounds, which could provide them with a much-needed spark.

Michigan's Thursday tilt with the South Dakota State Jackrabbits, and potential Saturday clash with the Virginia Commonwealth Rams or Akron Zips, will be at the Palace of Auburn Hills. The short trek from Ann Arbor will undoubtedly give the Wolverines a home-court advantage.

Head coach John Beilein's team will need to overcome a lack of production from their bigs and get some outstanding play from their top guards. Still, nobody should want to face the Wolverines as long as they follow this blueprint to a national title.
