Hamilton’s coaching resume was jam packed – even before he got to Florida State
Game by game, they've just taken one game at a time and believed. The Wolverines hit 19 of 49 for 38.8 percent from the field. Their size and length early on bothered the Wolverines, causing their offense to suffer in the first half.
MI is headed to the Final Four for the second time in six seasons. And by doing all the hard things, the Wolverines muscled their way to the Final Four.
FSU used a balanced attack, stifling defensive pressure and overall athleticism to dominate Gonzaga on Thursday to reach the Elite Eight, but it was Michigan's elite defense that frustrated the Seminoles for long stretches Saturday. As for Florida State, their were led by 16 points and 11 rebounds from Phil Cofer.
Hamilton flashed an annoyed look, and Jacobson added, "Coach, a four-point ball game, it's a question that the guys were asking at the end of our game".
The reporter asked Hamilton why his team chose not to foul MI while down 4 points with about 10 seconds left in the game.
Florida State: The loss ended an incredible run for coach Leonard Hamilton's Seminoles, who hit their stride at the flawless time.
He received a $200,000 bonus when the Seminoles made the 68-team field and an additional $50,000 for consecutive appearances. It was a decision that nearly certain didn't change the outcome of the game, but is still counter to normal procedure - especially with a Final Four berth on the line. Should he get some slack for being emotional after what surely was a crushing defeat? It was the first time both teams had majority black starters in the NCAA title game.
Still, Hamilton probably isn't the first coach to get testy immediately after losing a regional final in the NCAA Tournament. Michigan's winning streak is now up to 13 straight, and their dazzling defense has been a key in each win.
Wolverines forward Isaiah Livers knows one of Loyola's players, having played AAU basketball against each other in Chicago. The Wolverines closed as a four-point favorite and ended up pushing.
By Sunday night, there will be four teams left in college basketball. It might be tougher in the national championship game, but the Wolverines have taken every type of blow imaginable and responded in the proper way. But while the Ramblers are an 11 seed, don't expect them nor Sister Jean to go quietly, as their defense is just as good as Michigan's.

The North's delegation will be led by Ri Son Gwon, chairman of the North's agency that deals with inter-Korean affairs. As reports suggest, global sanctions, in turn, have resulted in North Korea facing a possible crisis of foreign cash.
Mizzou Ready for Return to NCAA Tournament
The 2018 NCAA Tournament's second round is set - well, nearly (that Missouri-Florida State game isn't quite over yet). The freshman and preseason All-American said he probably won't make his decision on what's next for a little while.
