On Saturday afternoon, Michigan put together arguably the best all-around performance we have seen from any team since the NCAA Tournament began. The Wolverines destroyed a VCU team that was impressive in its opening-round win against Akron. As you can see, Tim Hardaway Jr. put the exclamation point on a dominating 78-53 win with a nasty reverse dunk in the second half.
Hardaway Jr. scored 14 points in the win and was 3-for-5 from beyond the arc. The one player VCU really seemed to have no answer for was freshman forward Mitch McGary, who dominated the post and scored 21 points on 10 of 11 shooting. He also grabbed 14 rebounds.
Simply put, Michigan proved why it has been a popular Final Four pick out of the South region. The Wolverines now await the winner of Kansas and North Carolina. A potential matchup with the Jayhawks could wind up being one of the best games of the tournament.Google+
