It didn’t take long for Michigan’s shooting nightmare against Purdue to become a distant memory.
The Wolverines (9-6, 2-1 B1G) shot 53.5 percent from the floor and 60 percent from beyond the arc in a 73-64 win against Penn State on Tuesday in State College, tallying a 63.3 percent eFG%. Caris LeVert and Zak Irvin led the charge, respectively dropping 18 and 17 points on the Nittany Lions (12-4, 0-3).
“They’re a little bit smoother with their stroke,” Beilein said of his team’s 24-45 shooting performance after the game. “They’re just feeling better.”
