Both ESPN’s Joe Lunardi and CBS’s Jerry Palm updated their brackets this morning, and both have Michigan as a 3-seed.

They differ in that Lunardi has Michigan matching up with Wright State in the East, and with a win would then play the winner of Florida and St. Bonaventure.

The Wright State Raiders finished the season 25-9 with a win in the Horizon League Tournament to clinch an NCAA Tournament birth.

Palm has them playing the University of Maryland, Baltimore County in the West, and with a win would play the winner of Arkansas and Loyola-Chicago.

The UMBC Retrievers had a record of 24-10, and with a win in the America East conference confirmed an NCAA Tournament spot.

Unfortunately for fans looking for Michigan to play in Detroit, it continues to look even more unlikely.

Tune into TBS for the selection show tonight at 6 p.m. EST to see where and when the Wolverines will be playing.
