Michigan guard Frankie Collins (10) celebrates with teammates at the end the game against Colorado State. Michigan won 75-63.

► Matt Charboneau: If momentum carries any weight in the NCAA Tournament — it usually does — it's hard to pick against the Volunteers. They've won 13 of 14, including eight in a row behind a stifling defense and an offense that can run circles around opponents. On the other hand, the Wolverines haven't won back-to-back games in more than a month and might be without DeVante' Jones for the second straight game. If Michigan shoots the lights out, an upset is possible, but even in a tournament that has already produced its share, it's hard to see one happening here. Tennessee, 80-70
