On Tuesday, 3rd-ranked Michigan Wolverines face the NC State Wolfpack in the Big 10/ACC Challenge tournament. Tip-off will start at 7:30PM ET and will be held at the Crisler Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

The Wolverines will try to notch its 6 straight win this season. Last week, they won over Kansas State to bring home the NIT Season championship title. Michigan had an easy time disposing their first three opponents but was heavily tested by Pittsburgh and Kansas State.

Coach John Beilein knows as the season progresses his team will face tougher and physical teams that could blemish their perfect record this season. Michigan must be ready to take the challenge and be confident with their game.

NC State has a 4-1 record this season. However, they have lost four straight games in the Big10/ACC challenge. Coach Mark Gottfried knows that his Wolfpack must improve their defense and chemistry to have a successful season.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Michigan Wolverines as the favorite to beat the NC State Wolfpack on Tuesday night.
