Jordan Poole led the way for the Maize and Blue, scoring 19 points, including six in that critical run to start the second half.

Isaiah Livers scored 10 points, while Zavier Simpson finished just off of a triple-double with nine each of points, assists and rebounds.

Improving to 30-6 on the season, Michigan reached the 30-win mark for just fifth time in program history.

With the victory, the Wolverines advance to the Sweet 16 for the third straight year and the fifth time in the last seven seasons. Michigan will face off against 3-seed Texas Tech from Anaheim on Thursday at approximately 9:40 p.m. eastern on CBS.
