They scored 99 points in the regional semifinal and 58 in the final, a 41-point swing that is the largest two-game scoring difference by any team in this year's tournament.

MI knocked Florida State out of the NCAA Tournament with a 58-54 win in the Elite Eight.

TBS reporter Dana Jacobson asked head coach Leonard Hamilton about the decision and awkwardly dismissed the question.

Phil Cofer's 16 points led Florida State with PJ Savoy's 12 the only other double figure totals as the Seminoles did stay close with 18-of-20 free throw shooting. Moe Wagner, who attempted just three shots in the first half, got going in the second, scoring seven of his 12 points after the break including back-to-back scores midway through the second half as MI started to pull away with 7:46 to go.

After playing in front of 19,665 mostly pro-Michigan fans in Los Angeles, the Wolverines can likely expect much of the country to be rooting against them in San Antonio.

Hamilton said he was "impacted by" the "intense rush of emotions in our locker room after the game".

MI coach John Beilein predicted a major advantage for his team, and he was proven correct.

"I've been watching them". They are now averaging 74.1 points, ranking them 166th overall.

In the other regional final Saturday, third-seeded MI plays ninth-seeded Florida State in the West Region in Los Angeles.

"I felt like we were in Ann Arbor", Beilein said. The Ramblers shot 50% from three and 83.3% from the line, and that was that.

Staples Center was largely packed with maize-and-blue fans of the Wolverines, who have a vast alumni base in California. We've just got to hang in there, don't give them second shots, try and take away the 3 ball, the drive. The crowd included Rudy Tomjanovich, the MI alumnus and former Lakers coach, who watched in Wolverines gear near courtside. "We did a great job on defense".
