Game 21: Nebraska at Michigan Preview

Michigan hosts Nebraska this evening with a chance to bounce back from Saturday’s home loss to Wisconsin. The Cornhuskers have one of the best defenses in the Big Ten, but have struggled to score points this season despite featuring one of the conference’s best wing duos in Terran Petteway and Shavon Shields.

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.

Game 19: Michigan at Rutgers Preview

Michigan gets its first taste of life without Caris LeVert this evening and is expected to have limited reserves on hand. The injury report also features Derrick Walton (turf toe), Spike Albrecht (sick), Ricky Doyle (sick), Kameron Chatman (knee), Zak Irvin (sick) and DJ Wilson (knee). The Wolverines are wounded and shorthanded, but still have one of their best remaining opportunities to steal a road victory of the season.

Game 13: Illinois at Michigan Preview

All eyes are expected to be on Jim Harbaugh when Michigan hosts Illinois on Tuesday, but this winter hoops matinee is also a pivotal game in Michigan’s season. After a disappointing non-conference campaign, Michigan has a fresh start and a blank record in Big Ten play. The Wolverines have their work cut out for them – double digit wins will be required to claim any shot at the NCAA tournament – but a bit of rest and a 0-0 record might be the only chance to turn around a disappointing season.

Game 11: SMU at Michigan Preview

For the second consecutive year, Michigan has backed itself into a corner in mid-December. The Wolverines have a couple of nice victories, but they also have four losses to just six wins including a pair of ugly home defeats. Michigan can’t fall any further before the start of conference play and a win over SMU could provide the needed jolt of confidence to start to turn things around in Ann Arbor.

Game 10: Michigan at Arizona Preview

After losing to NJIT and Eastern Michigan back-to-back, Michigan is rewarded with a matchup against No. 3 Arizona. The Wildcats beat the Wolverines in the Crisler Center around the same time last year and boasted one of the most talented rosters in the country.
