MINNEAPOLIS — After today's game between the Michigan men's basketball team and Minnesota, we will know one team that is a lock for an at-large bid in the NCAA Tournament, probably. The Wolverines (8-9 Big Ten, 18-12 overall) and the Golden Gophers (9-8, 21-8) are both feeling the heat of life on the bubble. So much is on the line for both teams' NCAA Tournament hopes. If Michigan wins, it will likely garner an NCAA Tournament bid, its first since 1998.
