No students in the crowd, Christmas carols during pre-game warm-ups, travel plans arranged to return home and the allure of Big Ten play on the horizon. Holiday games are a recurring nightmare for college basketball coaches. It’s impossible to deny that Michigan was in at last a bit of a holiday funk to open this game.

The end result was a 77-66 Michigan win, securing a 10-2 pre-conference record for Michigan heading into Big Ten play.
