On Sunday (3:00 p.m., ESPN2), Michigan will play Florida Gulf Coast in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The winner will most-assuredly play three-seed Tennessee in the second round.

“It’s the highest seed in program history, we’ve done things that have never been done before,” Michigan coach Kim Barnes Arico said. “So in the middle of all the stuff that’s going on and maybe yeah we’re not as happy that this happened and this happened, let’s just reflect on potentially where our program was five or six years ago where we were just hoping to be selected.”
