On a day where Michigan basketball was ousted from the secondary postseason tournament in midseason fashion, other teams within the program have thrived.
Women’s gymnastics won yet another Big Ten Championship and Michigan hockey was determined to hold up its end of the bargain, despite being an underdog playing on the road.
Facing 1-seed Minnesota in Minneapolis, the 2-seed Wolverines won the Big Ten Tournament, 4-3, adding to the athletic department’s grand total, and making it the second-straight for the Michigan hockey team. Naturally, there were a lot of enthusiastic supporters of the maize and blue who took to Twitter to share their excitement for the big win. Here are the best we could find.
I hereby declare 3M Arena at Mariucci in Minneapolis as “Yost Arena West.”
There, settled! #GoBlue

Now that was a hell of a game.
UM hockey beats #1 MN 4-3, for the Big Ten tournament title. Never more than a one goal lead for either team, multiple switch-backs, and MN’s third goal was a highlight reel.
Michigan guaranteed a #1 seed — and rewarded with somewhere far away

BASKETBALL DOES NOT EXIST ALL HAIL GYMNASTICS AND HOCKEY

Very envious of the 10,000+ Minnesota fans that get to watch @umichhockey celebrate another Big Ten Championship.
