Here is the latest Michigan sports news from The Associated Press

UNDATED (AP) — Michigan earned a No. 1 seed in the East Regional a day after announcing its second-leading scorer has an injury that could keep him out of the NCAA Tournament. Isaiah Livers is out indefinitely with a stress injury in his right foot that prevented him from playing in a Big Ten Tournament semifinal loss to Ohio State. Michigan opens its tournament run Saturday against the winner of Thursday’s matchup between Mount St. Mary’s and Texas Southern.  Other first-round games in the region include Colorado vs. Georgetown, BYU vs. Michigan State  and Alabama vs. Iona.

UNDATED (AP) — This is the annual story to tell you how to win your office NCAA tournament pool. We will begin with one important caveat. Logic will not apply this year. Don’t pretend otherwise. Nobody knows who will handle this quasi-bubble situation in Indianapolis well. Nobody knows which team will see its hopes dashed by a test result. Nobody knows, well, anything. But the rules say we have to try to pick the winners, and on this bracket, the Big Ten is going to enjoy this tournament.

DETROIT (AP) — Dougie Hamilton and Nino Niederreiter scored, Alex Nedeljkovic made 25 saves and the Carolina Hurricanes beat the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 on Sunday night for their eighth consecutive victory. Carolina moved into the Central Division lead at 20-6-1, a point ahead of idle Tampa Bay and Florida. Anthony Mantha scored his eighth goal of the season for Detroit with just 9.4 seconds left in regulation, spoiling Nedeljkovic’s bid for his second career shutout. Niederreiter gave the Hurricanes a 2-0 lead early in the third period, scoring off a pass from Sebastian Aho.
