ESPN’s Joe Lunardi: Michigan a ‘coin flip’ to make the tourney

If you follow Michigan basketball, you know that it has been an extremely rough season for the Wolverines. Whether it has been playing the waiting game with their best player, Caris LeVert, or winning 11 of 13 games early on only lose 5 of their next 8, including a loss at Wisconsin on Sunday, it’s been a roller coaster of a season.

Now, as Selection Sunday is only two weeks away, the question remains, will the Wolverines get a chance to play in the Big Dance or will they be left with an NIT bid?

Well, according to ESPN’s bracket guru Joe Lunardi, at this point Michigan is a ‘coin flip’ to get into the NCAA Tournament and needs one more ‘good win’ to seal the deal.

Here is what Lunardi had to say in his column on

Coin flip (8). These teams are in the 50/50 T.O.P range and need at least one more “good win” to make the field: Michigan, Butler, Florida, Oregon State, Gonzaga, Tulsa, St. Bonaventure, Alabama.

What do you think, Nation, are the Wolverines a good bet to make the tournament or do they still have work to do?

Michigan closes out their regular season at home against Iowa on Saturday. Depending on what happens in that game and the other Big Ten games remaining will determine when and who the Wolverines will play in the Big Ten Tournament, which will begin on Wednesday, March 9th.
