5 Things We Learned from Michigan's Win over Tennessee
Michael Conroy

For 29 minutes, Michigan's Sweet 16 game against Tennessee followed a near-perfect script. The Wolverines hit their outside shots with consistency, played effective defense and were seemingly a half-step quicker than the Volunteers. Those factors allowed Michigan to build a 15-point lead.

However, the last 11 minutes could have been nightmarish. Tennessee found its stride—and its shooting eye—and cut the deficit to one point with 9.6 seconds remaining.

The Vols had the ball and a chance to win, but that's when Michigan's Jordan Morgan drew a charge from Jarnell Stokes. Instead of taking the lead, the Vols turned the ball over on the controversial call, and Michigan had its win after Nik Stauskas made a free throw and Tennessee's desperation heave fell short.

Here's a look at five things we learned Michigan's nail-biting victory.
