INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The South Dakota State men's basketball team learned on Sunday that the Jackrabbits would face Michigan when they return to the NCAA Tournament for a second straight season.

 

The No. 13 seed Jackrabbits and No. 4 seed Wolverines square off in the second round of the tournament at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Auburn Hills, Mich., on Thursday at 6:15 PM CST.

 

The South Dakota State-Michigan winner advances to the third round to face the winner of No. 5 seed VCU and No. 12 seed Akron on Saturday, March 23, for a spot in the South Region semifinals in Arlington, Texas, at Cowboys Stadium.

 

South Dakota State enters its 26th NCAA Tournament in school history, the second at the Division I level and second in as many years, with a 25-9 overall record. The Wolverines enter their 24th NCAA Tournament with a 26-7 record after earning an at-large bid out of the Big Ten.

 

Ranked sixth in the latest AP Poll and eighth in the most recent USA Today Coaches Poll, Michigan leads the all-time series with South Dakota State 2-0, with the first win being a 95-53 contest on Dec. 11, 1957, followed by a 104-66 Michigan win on Dec. 3, 1989. SDSU and Michigan played both games in Ann Arbor, Mich.
