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

Turns out Michigan and South Dakota State have more in common than just their star point guards.

"They don't turn over a lot, we don't turn over a lot," Jackrabbits coach Scott Nagy said. "They don't foul, we don't foul. There are a lot of similarities, so I think it will be interesting."

The fourth-seeded Wolverines take on their mirror image from the Summit League on Thursday night, when they face 13th-seeded South Dakota State in the NCAA tournament. Michigan is the clear favorite, especially since the game is about 50 miles from the school's Ann Arbor campus, but both teams play a similar style, relying on sharp shooting from the perimeter by guards who don't make many mistakes.
