We’re set for the championship game of the Roman Main Event tournament in Las Vegas on Sunday night as the No. 4 Michigan Wolverines will do battle with the Arizona Wildcats.
Fans on the east coast had to stay up into the wee hours of Friday night/Saturday morning to watch Michigan (3-1) topple UNLV with a 74-61 victory. The Wolverines were able to pull away in the second half and were led by Eli Brooks, who finished the contest with 22 points.
Right before that late-night matchup, Arizona (4-0) survived a late surge by Wichita State to come away with an 82-78 victory in overtime. Bennedict Mathurin had himself a night, putting up 25 points and 10 rebounds.
When: Sunday, November 21st, 9:30 p.m. ET

Spread: Michigan -4
Pick: Michigan -4 (-115)
The Wolverines aren’t going to get caught napping again. This Arizona team is not quite at the level of Seton Hall but there’s no way Michigan loses this game. Expect Juwan Howard’s bunch to come in prepared and focused. Michigan’s talent superiority would’ve been enough to win in most cases. Adding in the element of being truly locked in likely makes this a Wolverines rout.
