Michigan is making its second trip to the NCAA Tournament under John Beilein. In 2009, Beilein led the No. 10 seeded Wolverines to the second round, defeating No. 7 Clemson in the fi rst round before falling to No. 2 Oklahoma in the second round. Michigan is 12-3 (10-2*) all-time in the Round of 64 in the NCAA Tournament. The Wolverines are 5-5 (4-4*) all-time in the Round of 32. Michigan is a No. 8 seed for the fi rst time in its NCAA Tournament history. The Wolverines have played
in the No. 8 v. No. 9 fi rst round game twice as a No. 9 seed. The Wolverines defeated Navy, 97-82, in the
fi rst round in 1987, in Charlotte, N.C., and fell to No. 8 Western Kentucky in the 1995 NCAA Tournament,
82-76 in overtime, in Dayton, Ohio. Michigan will make its second NCAA Tournament appearance in Charlotte, N.C. The Wolverines fi rst appeared in the Queen City in the fi rst and second round in 1987, beating Navy, 97-82, before falling to top-seeded North Carolina, 109-97.
