The Wolverines got to the national semifinal round by defeating South Dakota State, VCU, Kansas and Florida. Mitch McGary's emergence has been vital to Michigan's success. He leads the Wolverines with 17.5 points per game, more than 10 points higher than his season average. McGary also leads all players with 46 total rebounds in the tournament, good for 11.5 per contest.

McGary and Trey Burke, who is tops among tournament players in total assists, will face their strongest defensive opponent to date. Syracuse has held its four tournament foes — Montana, California, Indiana and Marquette — to a combined 28.9-percent clip from the field, best among all teams in the Big Dance. The Orange kept three of those teams under the 50-point mark while employing their signature 2-3 zone defense.

Game time, TV: 8:49 p.m. ET, CBS/March Madness Live

Location: Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Ga.
