The Maize and Blue are marching on into Sunday's Big Ten Tournament championship game.

#5 seed Michigan knocks off #1 seeded Michigan State 75-64 in New York City. For the Wolverines, four of five starters scored in double digits and Michigan more than tripled Michigan State's attempts at the free throw line, 33 to 10.

For Michigan State, the Spartans are hopeful to remain as a #2 seed in the upcoming NCAA Tournament with their eye on Detroit, as brand new Little Caesars Arena will host second and third round games. Star forward Miles Bridges fouled out, but did finish the contest with 17 points.

Michigan awaits the winner of this evening's Penn State/Purdue game and will play on Sunday at 4 PM.
