For the second year in a row, the Michigan Wolverines are headed to the NCAA tournament for men's lacrosse following another Big Ten tournament championship.

The Michigan Wolverines have won four consecutive matches but three in a row in the postseason, which started with a 15-9 win over Ohio State. That came on the heels of a 13-12 win by Michigan over the Buckeyes to end the regular season.

However, the big moment came when the Michigan men's lacrosse team knocked off No. 2 John's Hopkins on Thursday (10-7) before a 16-4 domination of Penn State on Saturday to give the Michigan Wolverines their second consecutive Big Ten tournament title. Justin Tiernan led the way for the Wolverines with five points. Justin Brown, Michael Boehm, Isaac Aronson, and Aidan Mulholland also scored 2 each.

Michigan will await its placement in the NCAA tournament. The Wolverines were knocked out in the first round last season.

Top-100 RB has Michigan Wolverines in top four

There hasn't been great news for Michigan football this week on the recruiting trail when it comes to running backs after missing on Marquise Davis and also Bo Jackson.

Jackson didn't eliminate Michigan football officially. But he reported that he will be taking three official visits and none are to Ann Arbor, so take from that what you will.

Jordon Davison is another highly-touted back on the radar for the Wolverines and he included Michigan football in his top four on Saturday along with Ohio State, Oregon, and Alabama. The 7th-ranked running back in 2025 has two crystal balls for Ohio State. He's out of Mater Dei in California and this one seems like a long shot for the Wolverines.

You can never say never in recruiting, as Michigan football learned this past week from Marquise Davis. Heck, even after a commitment, you can be 100 percent sure until signing day.

Former Michigan basketball player Darius Morris passes away
