Late call goes against Vols in 73-71 season-ending loss

INDIANAPOLIS -

Jordan Morgan scored 15 points and Nik Stauskas had 14 including a key free throw to help Michigan hold on for a 73-71 victory over Tennessee in Friday's first Midwest Regional semifinal.
    
The second-seeded Wolverines now play either Louisville, who they lost to in last year's national championship game, or 2012 national champion Kentucky Sunday.
    
The Wolverines (28-8) led by 15 with 10:55 to go, but committed four turnovers in the final 97 seconds. Tennessee (24-13) cut the lead to 72-71 and had a chance to take the lead, but Jarnell Stokes was called for an offensive foul with 6 seconds left.
    
Stauskas then made 1 of 2 free throws and Tennessee's long desperation heave was off the mark.
    
Jordan McRae scored 24 to lead the 11th-seeded Vols.
