In its first road test of the season, Michigan’s youth showed up in a glaring way.
Melvin Ejim scored 22 points and Iowa State beat No. 7 Michigan 77-70 Sunday, spoiling Wolverines star Mitch McGary’s season debut.
Fans poured into the streets, rejoiced in dorms, bars and living rooms, and at one point became so raucous that riot police were briefly called in as the city held all-night parties to celebrate the Cardinals’ first NCAA title in a generation.
Aaron Craft hit a 3-pointer with a half-second left, and Ohio State escaped Dayton — a place of heartaches — as the lone high seed left in the NCAA tournament’s wild West Regional, beating Iowa State 78-75 on Sunday.
Michigan went on two runs of about five minutes each helping to beat Iowa State 76-66 on Saturday.
