Ann Arbor — Michigan hosted an NCAA Regional, and James Madison felt snubbed, believing it should have, as well.

The Dukes, ranked No. 16 nationally, three spots ahead of the Wolverines, arrived at Alumni Field with a chip on their shoulder and something to prove to the NCAA Selection committee that sent them on the road.

And they did just that, sweeping two games from Michigan on Monday after rain postponed the schedule a day. But that didn’t come without a late fight from the Wolverines.
