Northwestern looks like it is on the rise, relatively, while Big Blue has been a disappointment most of the season.
If both of these teams play to their talent level then Michigan should win but that has been there challenge recently.
They have the same record and maybe one of these teams can win a couple and sneak into the Big Dance. It would be quite a story for NW.
The Wildcats have some momentum coming into this matchup, as they come in riding a three game win streak. Against teams they should beat but still.
Coach Chris Collins has them on an upward tick as they look to make the NCAA’s for the first time in program history. They probably need this one and at least one other to merit real consideration, unless they win the whole thing.
What bodes well for the Wildcats is they have one of the better backcourts in the league in Tre Demps and Bryant McIntosh. I could see how they could lead this group to some success in this tournament format.
Northwestern also has a true post in Alex Olah. The seven footer is probably not bound for the NBA but if things are breaking down the Cats can throw it into the post.
The way Michigan is limping to the finish the Wildcats may have them right where they want them.
The Wolverines lost four of five down the stretch to squarely put them on the outside looking in. They have some work to do for sure. The one win was over Northwestern though.
All the will he won’t he stuff with Caris Levert is now over. He is shutdown for the season. It’s a loss but they are used to it by this point. Superman is not walking down the tunnel.
Big Blue does not have someone obvious to step up in his place but they do have a nice team concept where they share the ball. If someone gets hot they could go on a bit of a run.
The most likely candidate is Zak Irvin. He has talent but never seems to be able to put it all together. Derrick Walton is also good but not great. The question is whether he has a stretch of greatness within him.
Michigan sees Northwestern and expects to win I am sure. I am not sure it is going to be so easy.

Free Northwestern Wildcats vs. Michigan Wolverines CBB Prediction:
The only way NW breaks through to their first NCAA is if they go on a serious run. It all starts with one.
Michigan probably has the overall talent edge and their coach is more battle tested. That is probably enough.
