2. Michigan basketball drained nine more triples then the Buckeyes

The maize and blue tallied 12 three-pointers in the win compared to just three for the Buckeyes. Michigan shot over 50% from beyond the arc, while Ohio State was a dreadful 12% from three. It's the most since the McNeese State loss. Terrance Williams had 15 of his 18 from those five triples he made on Monday.

Bruce Thornton and Jamison Battle were the only two Buckeyes who canned the rainmakers for OSU. They have now lost three straight, all of which were in the Big Ten. Thornton had 19 for the Buckeyes in the losing effort, while Battle had a dunk that will be shown when the highlights are replayed all day long.

The Wolverines created nine more assists then OSU, but turned it over more and were outscored in the paint by 10. That's been a recipe for disaster this season, but because of the large disparity in the three-point difference, it was the main reason why Michigan basketball made up for those stats that they were lacking in.
