Morgan's double-double propels Michigan over Terriers

Michigan rode senior Jordan Morgan down the stretch to advance to the third round of the NCAA Tournament 57-40 over the Terriers of Wofford.

Michigan rode senior Jordan Morgan down the stretch to advance to the third round of the NCAA Tournament 57-40 over the Terriers of Wofford.

Morgan notched a double-double, tallying ten points with as many rebounds as sophomore's Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III adding 15 and 14 respectively.

The Terriers shot an abysmal 5.3% (yes, you read that correctly) from downtown making just one of 19 shots.

Michigan led 25-14 at the half, and seemed to be in complete

Wofford climbed to within seven off of their leading scorer -- 17 points -- Karl Cochran's three pointer, but wouldn't get any closer after Michigan answered with an old-fashioned three point play from Morgan.

Spike Albrecht was the lone Wolverine with no points at the night, but the Sophomore did have one assist. Zak Irvin notched no three pointers for the first time in what felt like all year, but the bench wasn't needed too much.

Michigan won't be aided by abysmal shooting in the next round, especially if Arizona State upsets Texas. The Sun Devil's Jahii Carson is an NBA talent at point guard with a score-first mentality.

Michigan will play the winner of Texas (7) and Arizona State (10) on Saturday at a time TBA in Milwaukee.
