The third-seeded Oregon Ducks will attempt to reach the Elite Eight for the second straight year as they prepare to meet the seventh and highest seed in the bracket Michigan Wolverines in a Midwest Region Sweet Sixteen showdown set to be staged on Thursday at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri.

The Wolverines will be participating in their first Sweet Sixteen since they appeared in it twice in a row back in 2013 and 2014. The Wolverines, who escaped a one-point 92-91 victory in the first round against Oklahoma State, showed they were for real by rallying from a 9-point deficit in the second half to beat Louisville 73-69 to reach the Sweet Sixteen.

The Wolverines shot almost fifty percent from the field but it was their defense that shined as it held the Cardinals to just 25 percent from beyond the arc which prove to be the difference maker. After a smooth first round against Iona, Oregon was pushed to the limit and saw an early tournament exit in the mix but rallied from an 11-point deficit in the second half and eked by a pesky Rhode Island squad to reach the next round.

Rhode Island’s solid defense stayed true to themselves but its offense failed to convert crucial rebounding opportunities in the second half which led to its ultimate demise. Oregon star center Chris Boucher’s absence will sorely be missed especially off the boards but Michigan’s rebounding skills are by far not one of their specialties. With Dillon Brooks and Tyler Dorsey directing traffic, expect the Ducks to end Michigan’s Cinderella dream.

BetOnline has the Michigan listed as 1-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 147.
