Last Saturday, the Michigan Wolverines (9-3) won their ninth game of the season against the Presbyterian Blue Hose (2-10) 86-44. Michigan defeated a weaker Presbyterian team that was seeking their third win of the season.

Michigan jumped out to an early lead in the first half and led by as many as 23 points. In addition to the Wolverines ending the first half leading by 23 points, they held the Blue Hose to 15 points. For the most part, this game was one-sided.

Eli Brooks led the Wolverines in scoring with 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting. Jon Teske finished second in scoring with 15 points, while David Dejulius added 12 points off the bench.

Michigan won by dominating the glass, converting from the charity stripe and efficient shooting. The Wolverines shot 52.8 percent from the floor and 76 percent from the free-throw line.

Not to mention the Wolverines captured this win due to their tenacious defense.

The Wolverines held the Blue Hose to 44 points and to 28.3 percent shooting from the floor. Presbyterian also turned the ball over 13 times.

Furthermore, Owen McCormack led the Blue Hose in scoring off the bench with 10 points. Besides McCormack’s 10 points, Ben Drake chipped in 9 points but it was not enough to compete with Michigan. McCormack was the only Presbyterian to score in double-digits.

Ultimately, the Wolverines were too much for the Blue Hose in the long run as they won the game by 42 points (86-44).
