Michigan is the first Big Ten team to play in the Round of 32 action and they have gotten off to a red hot start. The team is shooting well from outside, working well in transition, and holding to the ball. They have not been making the kind of mistakes they have made in recent weeks. The team looks like the #2 seed that they received from the committee. Here is the halftime score update:
Caris LeVert leads the Wolverines in scoring with 11 points. Nik Stauskas has 9 points, Jordan Morgan has 8 points and Glenn Robinson III has 7 points. Morgan leads Michigan with 4 rebounds. Zak Irvin also leads Michigan's bench scoring with 6 points.
For Texas, Isaiah Taylor leads the Longhorns with 12 points. Javan Felix has 5 points. Cameron Ridley and Jonathan Holmes both have 4 points. Holmes leads the team with 6 rebounds. Martez Walker leads Texas off the bench with 3 points.

If you're saying "it feels like that margin should be bigger" this game is on pace for 58 possessions. Deceptively slow.— Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) March 22, 2014
If Michigan makes five three-pointers in the second half, it'll tie the school record for most threes in an NCAA Tournament game (13).— Drew Hallett (@DrewCHallett) March 22, 2014
