Monday’s game is against IUPUI and on Tuesday Michigan will play the winner of Cleveland State and Bowling Green. Should Michigan prevail in both of those games they will advance to New York next week for the final rounds. Michigan would likely play Pittsburgh on Wednesday (11/21) in one semi-final game. The other semi-final should feature Kansas State vs Virginia. The winners of those two games will play for the championship on Friday (11/23). Here is the schedule with tip times and TV Monday (11/12) vs IUPUI: 9:05 tip and the game will be televised on ESPNU Tuesday (11/13) vs Cleveland State/Bowling Green: 8:05 tip and the game will be televised on ESPN2 Wednesday (11/21) vs Pittsburgh: This will tip at 7:00 on ESPNU or 9:30 on ESPN2 Friday (11/23) The Championship game is scheduled for 4:30 on ESPN and the consolation game will be at 2:30 on ESPN The Wolverines opened the 2012-13 season with a resounding 100-62 victory over Slippery Rock on Friday night.
