Michigan and MSU both got a 3-seed in the NCAA Tournament, but one of these 3-seeds is not like the other.

Though the Wolverines beat Tom Izzo's squad both times the teams squared off, the Spartans will be playing their opening weekend games with a bit of a homecourt advantage, as they drew Bucknell on Friday at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit as part of the Midwest region.

Michigan will head to Wichita, where it will square off with 14th-seeded Montana on Thursday in the West region.

As for the rest of the Big Ten, Purdue was given the highest seed of all Big Ten teams with a 2-seed in the East. Ohio State was the fourth and final Big Ten team to make the big dance and was given a 5-seed and a meeting with South Dakota State in the West.
