Saturday afternoon the Michigan Wolverines will host the Presbyterian Blue Hose at Crisler Center. Both teams look to rebound after losing their last game.
No. 14 Michigan (8-3) is entering this game after losing their last two games. On the flip side, Presbyterian (2-9) is heading into tomorrow’s matchup on a three-game losing streak.
Both teams will enter Ann Arbor looking for a way to win in order to gain momentum. Currently, Michigan is in seventh place in the Big Ten Conference. As of now, Presbyterian is in last place in the Big South Conference.
Ultimately, Saturday’s game should be a win for the Wolverines but nothing is promised in college basketball.
Here’s what to expect and how to watch the game:
Wolverines Game Information:
No. 14 Michigan Wolverines vs. Presbyterian Blue Hose
When: Saturday, December 21, at 12 p.m. ET
How to watch: Big Ten Network (BTN)
Keys to the matchup: Michigan enters tomorrow’s game after a heartbreaking overtime loss to the Oregon Ducks, while Presbyterian is coming off a blow out loss to the Jacksonville Dolphins.
The key for Michigan is to get into their offense early. Zavier Simpson needs to initiate the offense quicker which will allow the Wolverines to run their full offensive set. Not to mention it will provide this team with extra scoring opportunities by crashing the boards. If the supporting cast continues to chip in the team will be fine.
Lastly, Jon Teske needs to assert himself in this game in order for Michigan to win. The high pick-and-roll with Teske at the center helps this team offensively. He can shoot the elbow mid-range shot, back down defenders and occasionally hit a three.
Tomorrow’s game is significant for Michigan because it could dictate how they approach their matchup against No.15 Michigan State. A loss tomorrow would send the team on a three-game losing streak.
However, there is no place like home and the home crowd at Ann Arbor will provide the team with energy.
