To win, Michigan will need to play better defense, have the shots fall, and rebound. This game is not even close to a gimme and would not be a major upset, not even close.Against South Carolina State, Michigan played much better, primarily because the shots fell, and fell, and fell. Walton played a successful management game and LeVert again put up some good play. Stauskas had a great shooting night, but continues to be somewhere around average regarding defense and rebounding.
At least Michigan fans can be glad that the Wolverines attempt not to foul. In Columbus this week over 70 foul shots were attempted. The number was blamed on the new rules emphasis on checking.
Horford continues to be Michigan’s best rebounder on the floor, but that is about it, although at least he hit the scoring column against SCS.
As mentioned, do not be surprised if the next month is very up and down, good competition awaits.
As always tune in to see what happens (will the shots fall?).
