Jordan Morgan had 15 points and seven rebounds, while Nik Stauskas added 14 and Michigan held off Tennessee, 73-71, in a Midwest Regional semifinal on Friday night.
The Volunteers trailed by as many as 15 in the second half, but used an 11-2 run to get back in it and four straight Michigan turnovers later to make it interesting in the closing seconds.
After Josh Richardson banked in a floater, the Vols trapped Glenn Robinson III along the right endline and his pass bounced past Caris LeVert near halfcourt. The third consecutive Michigan giveaway led to a Jordan McRae layup to make it 72-71 with 10 ticks remaining.
LeVert then stepped out of bounds on the ensuing inbounds, but Jarnell Stokes was called for an offensive foul with six seconds to go.
Stauskas split a pair of free throws to extend the Wolverines edge to 73-71 and McRae's heave from halfcourt was well off the mark.
