Syracuse vs. Michigan, Final Four 2013: Game time, TV schedule and more

Michigan and Syracuse is one of the most intriguing Final Four matchups in recent memory because of the contrasting styles of play.


The Michigan Wolverines and Syracuse Orange bring contrasting styles to the 2013 Final Four.

Michigan and Syracuse share the distinction of knocking off a No. 1 seed en route to a spot in Atlanta, but the two No. 4 seeds earned their big wins in much different ways.

The Wolverines are second among all tournament teams in scoring at 78.8 points per game, and put up more points on the top-seeded Kansas Jayhawks than any school not named Iowa State in an 87-85 victory in the Sweet 16. Mitch McGary scored 25 points and grabbed 14 rebounds on that day, and leads the Wolverines with 17.5 points and 11.5 boards per game.

Syracuse held the high-powered No. 1 Indiana Hoosiers to a season-low scoring output in a 61-50 victory on March 29. The Orange followed that up by allowing just 39 points to Marquette in the Elite Eight. Syracuse has held its opponents to a 28.9 percent clip from the floor, best among all teams in the Big Dance. The Orange have forced 67 turnovers and allowed only 61 baskets in four games.

The winner between Michigan and Syracuse will take on either Louisville or Wichita State in the national championship game on Monday.
