Michigan won the Big Ten regular-season championship and followed that up with a runner-up finish in the conference's postseason tournament.
The Wolverines were the best team in the Big Ten during the regular season and earned a No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament as a result. They will face Wofford (20-12) in the first round.
The Wolverines didn't always blow opponents away throughout the season. In their Big Ten conference tournament win over Ohio State, the Wolverines did just enough down the stretch to come away with a 72-69 victory.
Head coach John Beilein believes the Wolverines have made their own luck throughout the season, because his team plays with intelligence and a hard-edged toughness.
"You look at so many of our games down the stretch here, they've ended just like this and the ball keeps bouncing our way," Beilein told reporters after beating Ohio State, per CBS Sports. "You only can have that type of luck if you have guys like these guys sitting next to me.
