Marcus Tsohonis put Long Beach State on his back, dropping 35 points on Michigan in Ann Arbor. Lassina Traore chipped in with a double-double.

Jon Rothstein had the perfect way to describe this upset: "Michigan loses a buy game to Long Beach State. The epitome of brutality."
Long Beach State will want this momentum to carry over to Monday's matchup against Illinois State in the Gulf Coast Classic.
Michigan, on the other hand, will try to bounce back against Memphis in the Battle 4 Atlantis.
