Wolverines win Big 10 tourney

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Michigan needed to win the Big Ten Tournament to qualify for the NCAA Tournament. The 2015 Wolverines added their own unique chapter to the school’s history.

Jacob Cronenworth picked up his fourth save in four games despite allowing a run and Michigan held off mistake-prone Maryland 4-3 and won conference tournament Sunday.

The Terrapins had the bases-loaded in the top of the ninth, but Cronenworth got Brandon Lowe to fly out to right. The win gave third-seed Michigan an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, the 22nd trip in school history and first since 2008.
