The win was a bit of revenge for the Wolverines (26-11), who were beaten 82-76 by Louisville in the 2013 NCAA Tournament final.

Michigan, which also got 11 points from Zak Irvin and 10 from Derrick Walton Jr., shot 63 percent in the second half (17 of 27).

Dorsey hit a contested go-ahead 3-pointer from the top of the arc with 38.4 seconds to play, then E.C. Matthews airballed a long 3 in the waning moments trying to force overtime, and third-seeded OR rallied in the second half to beat upstart No. 11 Rhode Island 75-72 on Sunday and reach the Midwest Regional. Jarron Cumberland had 15 points to lead the Bearcats.

Tyler Dorsey nailed a go-ahead, 3-point with 38.4 seconds left before the Ducks completed a 75-72 victory against Rhode Island.
