The Wolverines picked up their first road win in NCAA Tournament action today. Heading into today's game, Michigan was 0-2-1 in road NCAA games. U-M advanced against Notre Dame on penalty kicks in 2003. Michigan moves to 6-3 in NCAA Tournament action with today's victory.
Michigan is the lone Big Ten team remaining in the NCAA Tournament. Prior to today's games, the Big Ten was the lone conference with each of its teams selected for the tournament still in action.
U-M's three goals in the third round are the most goals scored by a team in the third round of the 2010 NCAA Tournament. So far, the most goals scored in the 2010 NCAAs was six in Providence's 6-2 win over St. Peters.
Justin Meram extended his goal-scoring streak to seven consecutive games with his two goals in today's game. Meram has scored 10 goals in Michigan's last seven games. His seven-game goal scoring streak is the longest for a Wolverine this season.
Soony Saad's game-winner was his sixth of the season and his 19th goal of the season. Saad is tied for second in the nation in goals and total points.
