Both teams playing really hot right and at the moment Michigan is coming in with some confidence they need to down one of their in state rivals who are also the top 5 in rankings. With Nick Stauskas dunking on people and shooting lights out three pointers, it’s hard to say they can be stopped. Rebounds secured in the glass by Glen Jr. and Jon Horford will need to step up tonight as Mitch McGary, last years tournament sweetheart, had not lived up to par this year. Michigan has clawed its presence back into the ap poll at 21. The main thing I extract from this preview is Izzo’s depth on the bench and Guard play by Gary Harris and “sweet Keith ” Appling. Maturity , home crowd and depth wins this game for the Spartans I say 72-56.
