NCAA Round of 64: 1-seed Michigan Wolverines (20-3) vs. 16-seed Texas Southern Tigers (17-8)

When: 3 p.m. Saturday.

Where: Mackey Arena in West Lafayette, Indiana.


Radio: 950 AM in Detroit (other radio affiliates).

Game notes: Michigan senior forward Isaiah Livers remains out (foot injury). It would take a "miraculous" return for him to play during this tournament.

OPINION:Loss of Isaiah Livers seems crushing, but U-M has talent to replace production

MITCH ALBOM:U-M's Juwan Howard, now coach, hopes to shock the world again

THE FROSH:U-M will lean on Hunter Dickinson this March. History says he can handle it
