With 12 individual A-finalists swimming tonight, the Michigan Wolverines will look to extend their lead.  However, their archrivals, the Ohio State Buckeyes, may actually close the gap tonight if you include diving.

One-third of Michigan’s 12 swimmers are competing in the 100 fly, where the Wolverines put four in the top 8, even without arguably their top flyer (Dylan Bosch).

Ohio State should firmly be in second after tonight.  The Buckeyes put together an excellent morning, including three A-finalists in the 400 IM, and the top seed in the 100 fly (Matt McHugh, who swam an NCAA ‘A’ standard of 45.89).  Josh Fleagle has a chance to win the 200 free tonight, too.

Wisconsin has also continued to perform well, with ten more scoring swims tonight, including six A-finalists.

Using the same scoring methodology as yesterday, if you assume each “up” and “down” swimmer scores the average number of points earned in their respective heat (14.75 points for an A-finalist, 4.625 points for a B-finalist), Michigan will add another 30-35 points on Ohio State before diving.
