The odds were against South Dakota State tonight as they faced 4th seeded Michigan in front of a pro Wolverine crowd in Auburn Hills.
Coach Nagy and his Jacks were looking to advance but they'd have to get past the 4th seeded Wolverines.
SDSU would go on an 11-0 run, but then the Wolverines got it going as Tim Hardaway Jr. letting it fly and finished 5 of 7 from deep.
SDSU trailed by four going into the break.
But the Wolverines pulled away in the second half thanks to 45 percent shooting from long range.
They end state's stellar season, 71-56 the final.
Head coach Scott Nagy and Point Guard Nate Wolters expressed their disappointment.
"Just felt like we were timid, soft. We were down four to Michigan at the half," Nagy said, "Brayden played great for us. We just needed to shoot the ball better around."
"It's a tough way to go out. It's a great place," Wolters said. "Unbelievable experience the last four years. I wouldn't trade it for anything."
