After 39 seasons on the college sidelines as a head coach and four head-to-head matchups with Pitino, Beilien understands his team must be ready for anything and everything in Sunday's second-round game at Indianapolis. Otherwise, he has constructed exceptional teams from players not destined to be National Basketball Association all-stars, whether it was the Kentucky "Unforgettables" group in 1992 that included John Pelphrey and Deron Feldhaus or the 2013 Louisville NCAA champions whose biggest stars were guards Russ Smith and Peyton Siva.
After matching a season-low with four turnovers against Oklahoma State, Michigan's average dropped to 9.2 per game - the best in the nation and perhaps a major reason Pitino promised he wouldn't turn up the pressure Sunday.
Louisville had a much more comfortable win to start the tournament, winning 78-63.

2 seed in the Midwest Region on Sunday with a 12:10 p.m. tip-off against Louisville. Donovan Mitchell led the way with 19 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. MI is the story of this year's Dance in the early going. Derrick Walton, Jr.is playing like a man possessed right now and sometimes that's all it takes. The Wolverines were 14-9 overall and 4-6 in the Big Ten when they lost to Ohio State on February 4, but they're 12-2 since then, once again morphing into one of the nation's most potent offenses under offensive guru John Beilein.
