Matthews started, dropped 14 points, three three-pointers and grabbed seven boards. Zavier Simpson led Michigan with 15 points.

His biggest shot came with 4: Carsen and Vincent did what they do best and knocked down clutch three-pointers. Isaac Haas hit a free throw to take the lead and Matthews missed a three-pointer as the game came to an end. The point guard Dakota Mathias dropped four from downtown for 14 points and contributed four assists. To set up the free throws from Haas, Mathias came up with a big-time steal.

Their defense has been tremendous. When Purdue needed a big play, the point guard came up with the steal. It was a good Michigan team and the Boilers proved to be too much. Along with Livers, Moe Wagner has the ability to stretch the floor too. He can seriously be a difference maker. At six-foot-ten, he has made 30 total three-pointers, averages Vincent Edwards goes six-foot-seven and can certainly knock down the three. The Boilermakers are playing out of their minds with great scoring and lockdown defense.

Michigan showed signs up being great but had a slip up against Nebraska. Both teams have balanced scoring. The Wolverines and Boilermakers have great depth and experience. What the Blue Devils will look like in by Tristan Freeman. Where do the Wolverines and Boilermakers fall in Bracketology?

Busting Brackets 8 months Michigan vs. College basketball game preview, TV schedule, prediction. Busting Brackets 8 months Michigan Basketball: Wolverines get season-changing win over Spartans. Because of their youth, I'm expecting a few losses early, and a couple of losses late that we should win.

I'm also expecting we'll pull off a couple of upset wins. Feb 3, Messages: Aug 29, Messages: Nov 12, Messages: Carsen is the best player in the country. Fansince72 and Bethboilerfan like this.

I don't see anyone potentially serviceable as a big at Illinois or as a ball handler at Penn State. Seems to me that both of those teams and their coaches are gonna have a sad situation.

They're obviously drawing stone cold dead to win the conference. Grayson Allen has abused whoever has taken their turn guarding him between McQuaid and Josh Lanhford.

Trevor Duval, who was low key kind of awful last season, has gotten into the lane at will abusing Cassius Winston. Tre Duval just ran a PnR with Cassius and Nick Ward defending him and trying to trap him and he just split the trap easily. And its still Those 3 simply can't defend at all. It was hidden quite a bit because they were playing with 2 shot blocking athletes in JJJ and Miles Bridges but now those 2 are gone.

Just went and looked up the Box score - Grayson Allen ends up with 37 this game and Trevon Duval ends up with 17 points and 10 assists. Mar 11, Messages:
