ESPN's BPI predicts outcome of B1G teams on Day 2 action in Round of 64
Day 2 of the Round of 64 is getting set to tip-off, and the B1G will have three more teams in action Saturday.
Friday was certainly a mixed bag for the conference from top-to-bottom. Illinois did not struggle in an opening game against 16-seed Drexel while Wisconsin blew out North Carolina in a rare Round of 64 loss for the Tar Heels. Rutgers also snapped a long drought by taking down Clemson to advance.
Heading into Saturday, the B1G will have 1-seed Michigan and 2-seed Iowa hitting the floor with both heavily favored in their matchups. 10-seed Maryland will be looking to pull an upset as the Terrapins will square off against 7-seed UConn.
Here is how ESPN’s BPI is predicting these games to go down:
- 16-seed Texas Southern vs 1-seed Michigan (97.6% chance to win) – Tip-off at 3 pm EST on CBS.
- 15-seed Grand Canyon vs 2-seed Iowa (91.5% chance to win) – Tip-off at 6:25 pm EST on TBS.
- 10-seed Maryland (35% chance to win) vs 7-seed UConn – Tip-off at 7:10 pm EST on CBS.
