Michigan's red-hot run is showing no signs of cooling off.
The Wolverines, who won the Big Ten Tournament title with four victories in four days, are now 2-for-2 in the NCAA tournament and heading to the Sweet Sixteen after beating second-seeded Louisville by a 73-69 score on Sunday afternoon.
All in all it's seven straight wins for the maize and blue and 12 wins in the last 14 games. That includes six consecutive wins in the postseason, the latest advancing Michigan to its third Sweet Sixteen under John Beilein and third in the last five seasons.
Saturday, the Wolverines took down one of the nation's best teams thanks to a monster second half.
After Michigan tied the game near the end of the first half, Louisville rattled off a rapid 8-0 run to grab an eight-point edge at the break. But the Wolverines came back from a nine-point deficit with a 13-4 run to tie the game at 51 with a little more than nine minutes to play. Michigan didn't trail the rest of the way, though it never led by more than six in a back-and-forth finish. The Cardinals closed within two in the game's final minute, but D.J. Wilson knocked down four free throws in the game's final 17 seconds to seal the win for the Wolverines.
Michigan shot a jaw-dropping 63 percent from the field over the game's final 20 minutes, part of the huge days for both Wilson and Moe Wagner. Wagner had a career-high 26 points in the win, with Wilson adding 17. Zak Irvin scored 11 points, and Derrick Walton Jr. had just 10 points on a rare off shooting day for a guy who's been one of the country's best point guards in recent weeks.
The Wolverines march on to Kansas City for the Midwest Region semifinals, where they'll face either third-seeded Oregon or 11th-seeded Rhode Island.
