Michigan Romps to 99-72 Win over Texas A&M, Advances to 2018 Elite 8

The third-seeded Michigan Wolverines are moving on to the Elite Eight of the 2018 NCAA men's basketball tournament following a 99-72 victory over the seventh-seeded Texas A&M Aggies on Thursday night at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

It's the third time in John Beilein's 11 seasons as the head coach the Wolverines have reached the regional final.

Michigan will meet either the No. 4 Gonzaga Bulldogs or No. 9 Florida State Seminoles in the next round.

Moritz Wagner had the hot hand, scoring 21 points on 8-of-12 shooting and making all three of his three-pointers. Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman scored a game-high 24 points while grabbing five rebounds and dishing out seven assists.
