For the state of Michigan, there are three teams in the NCAA tournament bracket: Michigan State, Michigan and Kansas. The Spartans are the West Region's No. 1 seed and will play LIU Brooklyn on Friday. That same day, Michigan, the No. 4 seed in the Midwest Region, will play Ohio (the Bobcats, not Ohio State). The Detroit Titans will also be in action on Friday and are in the Midwest Region as well. They are set to play the second-seeded Kansas Jayhawks after picking up a No. 15 seed.
