The No. 2 seed Michigan Wolverines survived a possible early exit from the Big Ten Tournament with an exciting overtime win over Minnesota in the quarterfinals on Friday. Michigan hopes to carry over that momentum into its semifinal matchup up with the No. 3 seed Ohio State Buckeyes on Saturday.
The Buckeyes took care of business on Friday night by burying Purdue with a late run for an 88-71 win. The rival schools will now square off at Bankers Life Fieldhouse with a chance to advance to the final game and play for an automatic NCAA tournament bid, which should also improve the seeding in the Big Dance for the winner.
Where: Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Indianapolis, IN
Game Time: Saturday, 4:05 p.m. ET (approximate, as the official start is 25 minutes after the end of Michigan State vs. Wisconsin, which tips at 1:40 p.m. ET)
