ESPN bracketologist Joe Lunardi has Michigan as a No. 4 seed in his initial 2017-18 NCAA Tournament projection. Plus, NBADraftExpress.com doesn't list Michigan big men Moritz Wagner or D.J. Wilson in its latest projections ...


Michigan is one of seven Big Ten teams in Lunardi's initial projected bracket, but the highest seed, so Lunardi essentially believes U-M will win the Big Ten. He has the Wolverines playing in Detroit — that would be ideal, of course, with first round games at the new Little Caesar's Arena downtown.

It's all a guess at this point, of course, but he has U-M playing in the South region.

Purdue (5), Minnesota (6), Michigan State (7), Wisconsin (8), Northwestern (9) and Indiana (10) are the other Big Ten teams listed.
