AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Trey Burke versus Nate Wolters is the matchup everyone is waiting to see.

Turns out that fourth-seeded Michigan and 13th-seeded South Dakota State have more in common than just their star point guards.

Neither team turns the ball over much, and they don’t commit a lot of fouls either. It should make for an entertaining, free-flowing game Thursday in the South Regional in Auburn Hills, Mich.

South Dakota State (25-9) is back in the NCAA tournament after losing to Baylor last year.

Michigan was a No. 4 seed in 2012 and lost to 13th-seeded Ohio. The Wolverines (26-7) are trying to avoid a repeat, and they’ll be under pressure to advance after a regular season in which they were ranked No. 1 in the nation at one point.
