It’s a Big 10 showdown on Wednesday night.
The Michigan Wolverines travel to New Jersey to take on the Rutgers in a key showdown.
This is the first match up between the two teams this year. Michigan won the match up 68-57.
The Michigan Wolverines are in a good position to make the NCAA Tournament, as long as they don’t absolutely bomb in the last few weeks.
The Wolverines come into this game with a record of 17-10 and sit in 7th place in the Big Ten standings. They are 3-1 in their last four games.
In their last game however, they took the Golden Gophers to overtime.
If they would have won that game they would be a virtual lock to make the big dance. But they didn’t so they still have some work to do.
The Wolverines are a good team on both sides of the ball. They score 74.3 points per game, well only giving up 65.9 points per game.
The Wolverines are led by Derrick Walton Jr. He is averaging 14.4 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 4 assists per game.
For the Wolverines to win they need to come out hot and not overlook this game. They are the better team in this match up and as long as they play their game, they will come out on top.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
The Rutgers Scarlet Knights season has been a tail of two seasons, non conference and conference play. The Scarlet Knights played an easy non conference schedule and won 11 of the 12 games.
But then came conference play. Since conference play started they have gone 2-13 with the only wins being over Nebraska, and Penn State.
They are 13-15 overall and sit in 14th place in the Big Ten Conference. Most of Rutgers problems come on the offensive side of the ball.
They only score 65.4 points per game and shoot 40.9 percent from the field. But their biggest area of concern might be from the free throw line.
They only shoot 61.4 percent from the free throw line. If that number was a little higher they might have a few more wins.

Free Michigan Wolverines vs. Rutgers Scarlet Knights NCAAB Prediction:
Oklahoma has so many weapons, things will be tough for the Aggies here.
It’s not just Hield, but it’s also Isaiah Cousins, Jordan Woodard and Ryan Spangler that the Aggies will have to deal with.
