Jake Silver@@jakeofsilverSocial Media StaffMarch 16, 2014

What was supposed to be a close battle between in-state rivals and top-notch coaches was never even close. The Michigan Wolverines, owners of the No. 8 ranking in the nation, looked nothing like the No. 1 seed they were all but assured of entering this game.

Michigan State was dominant from the get-go, frustrating Michigan with suffocating defense and made buckets.

Adreian Payne had a game-high 18 points and 9 rebounds, while his Spartan teammates Gary Harris and Branden Dawson each put up 15.

Nik Stauskas scored 17 for the Wolverines, but ultimately Michigan was no match for Michigan State, falling 69-55.
