Still, though this talented group may not have been the most cohesive Wolverine unit we've seen in recent memory, this is a team that knew how to score and knew how to compete in big-game situations. Had the NCAA Tournament taken place, the Buccaneers would've certainly been another trendy pick for a high-seed upset. Sporting the highest NET ranking of any low mid-major champion, ETSU was one of those rare talented teams that could both score and defend, ranking 43rd and 26th in the nation in both categories, respectively. Led by the 13.6 ppg of Senior guard Tray Boyd III, in this hypothetical matchup, the Buccaneers would be looking to hand Michigan their first loss in an opening round game since 2012.
