Michigan's Jack Hallahan (11)  is second in team scoring with five goals and six assists.

Michigan men's soccer team has been awarded the No. 13 seed in the NCAA Tournament and will play the Notre Dame-Wright State winner in a second-round game at U-M Soccer Stadium on Sunday.

A kickoff time has yet to be determined. Notre Dame plays Wright State at 7 p.m. Thursday in South Bend, Indiana.

The Wolverines (11-4-5) are making their third straight tournament appearance for the first time in program history. The school earned an at-large bid largely due to its 3-3-2 record against RPI top-50 opponents.

Coach Chaka Daley's side has gone 6-2-2 in its last 10 matches, including a 0-0 draw to No. 8 Indiana in the Big Ten tournament title game Sunday in College Park, Md. The Wolverines held the Hoosiers to four shots in the match, which Indiana won 4-3 in a penalty shootout.

The shutout was a program-record 10th this season for UM.
