Watch Oklahoma State VS Michigan Live Stream. Michigan went from a scary incident when its plan skidded off the runway when trying to take off for Washington, D.C., to winning the Big Ten tournament and heading into this week with plenty of momentum. The Wolverines are on fire and earned the No. 7 seed in the Midwest Region, where they’ll face Oklahoma State. The Cowboys earned an at-large bid out of the Big 12.
Michigan vs. Oklahoma State Game Preview
Date: Friday, March 17
Venue: Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Indianapolis
Michigan has a lot of experience with Derrick Walton Jr., Zac Irvin and D.J. Wilson that can help it stay composed under the pressure of the Big Dance. Walton and sophomore Moe Wagner especially have keyed the Wolverines’ end-of-the-season push to lock up a bid.
Michigan lives and dies by the 3-pointer and led the Big Ten in average long-range attempts per game at 24.6 during the regular season. The Wolverines too often can start chucking, and if they’re not hitting, it could be their undoing.
Oklahoma State Strengths
Jeffrey Carroll, Jawun Evans and Phil Forte III make up a solid trio that can put points on the board in a hurry, and Evans is just as good of a distributor as he is a scorer. They found their groove toward the end of the regular season and make Oklahoma State a tough out in the NCAATournament.
Oklahoma State Weaknesses
The Cowboys don’t have much depth. Coach Brad Underwood uses eight players regularly, but those coming off the bench often see fewer than 20 minutes with one with fewer than 10. Carroll, Evans and Forte are fantastic players, but they’re going to need some help.
