The selection show was projected on a screen for all gathered around to see. Upon seeing their school name put into a bracket slot, the Michigan baseball players erupted in a cheer.

Some jumped to their feet in joy while others looked around for recipients to their high-fives, because the Wolverines were one of the last four teams into the NCAA Tournament after a turbulent end to their season jeopardized their spot. Though a long shot, it was a chance for a shot at the title, and a chance was all they needed.

The Michigan rowing team's 1V8 boat sprinted towards the end for a photo finish win.

The game plan for Michigan was to stay composed and stay true to itself, the first 1,500. Don’t let the other team’s boat affect you, and don’t let up. And if that holds up, see where the other boat is and respond accordingly. Only, when the Wolverines looked over to Yale’s line at the last 500 meters, they knew they needed more than just composure to win.

Coach Mel Pearson and the hockey team will look to secure a home ice advantage this weekend for the Big Ten Tournament.

In the previous series in November, it was Wisconsin’s freshmen who made the difference, scoring all three of its goals in the series. Despite the impact, their inexperience showed as well, committing late-game penalties that jeopardized the result of the match.

This weekend, Pearson expects an entirely different team — for both sides.

Junior forward Will Lockwood committed a costly penalty in double overtime against Ohio State, and was forced to watch Michigan's loss from the tunnel.

Instead of being on the ice, Lockwood stood. And he watched. And he waited for the result of his absence to unravel. Two minutes later, with a Jobst goal, it did.

Ohio State defenseman Grant Gabriele will return to Ann Arbor this weekend with No. 6 Ohio State.

“The Michigan-Ohio State rivalry in hockey has been pretty intense,” Gabriele said. “So when we see that on the schedule, it always gets people going. It’s just kind of a big game people look for and a fun one. Just a lot of intensity and the tension between the two teams are pretty crazy.”

Freshman forward Jimmy Lambert has been honing his offensive and defensive skills as the season has progressed.

Pearson has implored Lambert to take things more seriously, through preparation for games or practices. There are many different routines or styles of hockey — different ways to play, practice or prepare. As Pearson puts it, Lambert’s yet to find his own.

But he has started to put things together.

Junior Hayden Lavigne allowed four goals for Michigan in its disappointing loss to Notre Dame.

SOUTH BEND — On the penalty kill, a shot. On the power play, a shot. On even-strength, a shot.

No matter if it played with a man-advantage, man disadvantage or at even strength, the Michigan hockey team couldn’t prevent Notre Dame from getting a shot off. And four times, Hayden Lavigne couldn’t prevent those shots from becoming a goal.

The junior goaltender saw 23 shots at him in a 5-2 loss. He saved just 19 for a save percentage of .826.

The team made crucial changes in order to get its first series sweep in the Big Ten.

After that series, Michigan has failed to sweep a series until last weekend against Michigan State, when the Wolverines completed their first Big Ten weekend series — exorcising demons built throughout a string of ties and losses. Their record for Saturday games up until that point? Two wins, six losses and two ties that ended in losses.
