Game Notes: Michigan is back in the Round of 32; that’s six straight tournament appearances while winning a game. Hunter Dickinson (21 points, four blocks) was key in Thursday’s 75-63 win over Colorado State. Eli Brooks added 16 points, seven rounds and six assists as Michigan led the second half 46-27 to pull off a comeback victory over the top-seeded, middle-ranked Rams. Starting guard DeVante’ Jones, who missed CSU’s win with a concussion, will play Saturday.

Tennessee didn’t have as many problems in its first game of the tournament, easily dispatching Longwood after a close start. The game was 20-17 with about 10 minutes left in the first half, then the Vols went on a 9-0 run as part of a larger 34-12 run to end the period 54-29 in favor of Tennessee. Watch for Kennedy Chandler and Santiago Vescovi, the Vols’ leading scorers, who had 13 points and 18 points, respectively, against Longwood.

The only common opponent the teams have is North Carolina. Michigan lost Dec. 1, 21, to UNC thanks in part to Dickinson’s foul problem. The Vols beat the Tar Heels by a similar margin, 17 points, on November 21.

The winner of this game faces the winner of seventh-seeded Ohio State against second-seeded Villanova.
