Can Michigan basketball play complete game, survive LSU for spot in Sweet 16?
(AP Photo/Robert Franklin)ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Michigan basketball is one win away from reaching the Sweet 16, but to do so, it will need to play its best game since last month. 16 seed Texas Southern in the opening round, Michigan improved to 3-3 in its last six games. The others were against Michigan State and Ohio State -- two teams Michigan had already beaten this season. Even in its wins over Michigan State, Maryland and Texas Southern, Michigan hasn’t really put together a complete game. In the first Michigan State game, the Wolverines committed 20 fouls and 14 turnovers.
