Game 30: Rutgers at Michigan Preview

Michigan’s season hasn’t gone how anyone planned, but it will have a chance to end the regular season on a positive note at home on Saturday afternoon. The Wolverines will host the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, the same team they beat on the road a month and a half ago in their first game without Caris LeVert. Michigan has only won two other games since then, losing eight, but there’s little doubt that the Michigan players left in the rotation have grown up quickly over the last 10 games.

Game 28: Michigan at Maryland Preview

The statistics say that Maryland is one of the luckiest, or most overrated, teams in the Big Ten. The Terrapins are 11-4 in conference games, just 1.5 games back from Wisconsin, but have only outscored Big Ten opponents by .002 points per possession. That means that numbers say the Terps are closer to a .500-level team than a conference contender, despite the eye test and the win-loss record saying something very different.

Game 20: Wisconsin at Michigan Preview

The standings say that Michigan and Wisconsin are only separated by a half game, but in reality the two teams couldn’t be further apart. Wisconsin is a legitimate threat to go back to the Final Four, the odds on favorite to win the Big Ten, and features a National Player of the Year candidate in its starting lineup. Michigan just lost its best player for the season and while the Wolverines have scrapped and clawed their way to a 5-2 Big Ten record, the wins are over teams with a combined 7-26 record.
