That "something" was running into a Michigan team that is finally starting to assert itself, largely due to McGary establishing himself as an all-around -- scoring, rebounding, blocking shots -- threat down low, complimenting the team's perimeter threats, many of which can also create their own shot.
Sure, like any team in a single elimination tournament, they can flame out quickly. But after dispatching Kansas in dramatic fashion, this team has all the confidence in the world and I wouldn't be at all surprised to see the Wolverines emerge victorious next Monday night.
