Texas A&M's dismantling of North Carolina opened eyes as they crushed a perennial powerhouse and a trendy pick to make it to the championship in what has been seen as a weaker region of the overall bracket.
Michigan, meanwhile, has been hot since the Big Ten Tournament, and provided us with one of many epic moments from the tournament so far in their game-winning buzzer-beater over Houston.
This 3-7 matchup will send the winner to face either 4-seed Gonzaga or 9-seed Florida State for a spot in the Final Four.
