Michigan B1G Championship-10
Dustin Johnston

Michigan’s 2014-15 schedule was finalized today as the Big Ten formally announced the conference schedule.

The Wolverines will open Big Ten play on December 30th at home against Illinois. Michigan will host back-to-back marquee home games in February when Michigan State and Ohio State travel to Crisler Center on February 17th and 22nd respectively.

Due to the Big Ten’s expansion to 14 teams, Michigan will only play five teams – Illinois, Michigan State, Northwestern, Ohio State and Rutgers – twice during conference play. The Wolverines will have home single plays against Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska and Wisconsin and road single plays against Indiana, Maryland, Penn State and Purdue.

Michigan’s non-conference schedule is highlighted by the Legends Classic in Brooklyn (games against Oregon and either VCU or Villanova), a road game at Arizona and home contests against Syracuse and SMU. Find Michigan’s full schedule after the jump. [click to continue…]

By The Numbers: Michigan 116, Padova 52

Michigan finally broke the century mark in its 116-52 win over Petrarca Padova on Wednesday. U-M released a box score (compiled by hand) and since the game wasn’t streamed, here are some statistical observations and notes from the box score including our traditional Four Factors graph.

It’s not much of a surprise that Michigan dominated all four factors offensively as it scored 116 points in 89 possessions and more than doubled up Padova. Padova was able to hang around for part of the first quarter, but Michigan stifled them in the second half – holding them to just 16 points total.

Michigan’s offense did everything you would expect against below-average competition. The Wolverines shot 59% on twos and 39% on threes for a 59% effective field goal percentage. The turnover woes from the first game were mostly eradicated as Michigan gave the ball away on just 13% of its offensive trips and also grabbed 39% of its missed shots.  Michigan didn’t get to the free throw line often, but that was of little concern as it scored 1.30 points per trip.
