The Wolverines come into this game on a season roll, literally, they don’t know losing and they are going for their 18th straight since losing to Villanova in the National Championship game last April. This team looks a lot different than the one that played Villanova. These guys are disciplined, they are tough and they have learned what it means to play tenacious defense.
The Wolverines are scoring 73.6 points per game and allowing just 56.6, they are shooting 47.1% from the field, pulling down 36.2 rebounds per game along with 14.1 assists and 4.3 blocks per game. The Wolverines have a three headed monster in Brazdeikis, Teske, and Simpson, they have depth, their bench is without question one of the best in the nation and it has contributed huge in the 17 wins.
The Badgers are defending their home court and want nothing more than to beat an unbeaten and a fierce rival in the Big 10. Senior forward, Ethan Happ is having a fantastic year with 19.4 points per game, 10.4 rebounds, along with 4.6 assists per game. The Badgers will need every point from Happ today, he must have a big game if Wisconsin stays close. The Badgers are scoring 73.9 PPG. and allowing 63.6 while shooting 48.3% from the field along with 13.7 assists and 3.9 blocks.
This one will be good and will be fun and could be close in the first half. Michigan will take over late and cover -3.5.
