Michigan Poised To Make A Deep Run in NCAA Tournament
At 8-1 in the Big Ten Conference with less than a month to play, the Wolverines are in the cat bird’s seat for the conference title. But there have been (and will be) challenges. The Wolverines were forced to cancel two conference games due to outbreaks of the pandemic on their opponent’s rosters. While Michigan didn’t have a single player test positive, they were required to quarantine after exposure to infected players and personnel.
At the time of their shutdown, the Wolverines were ranked third in the nation with a 13-1 record. Under second-year head coach Juwan Howard, the Wolverines rely on their size, low post skills, and defensive ruggedness to wear down opponents. Their physical presence makes them a unique challenge in college basketball, where perimeter scoring is emphasized.
Wisconsin And Michigan Matchup
The battle between the Wolverines and Badgers on Valentine’s Day will be a contrast in styles. Michigan pounds the ball into the paint and is one of the country’s best rebounding teams. The Badgers rank in the top ten in three-point shooting. Something will have to give.
Both Michigan and Wisconsin are experienced, relying heavily on senior leadership and play on the court. The tip-off is 1 PM EST on Sunday, February 14.
