Would love to know the scheduling story here and if the game was on the books before last year’s title tilt, obviously won by Villanova rather easily. Still good intrrigue.
Both of these teams are ranked heading into this one, though neither is being expected to compete for the title again. This is a great pre-conference measuring stick for both programs.
This is a much different Michigan team personnel wise than the one that went to the Championship. Their first couple of games have been against light competition for sure too. .
Charles Matthew was a breakout in the Tournament last year and they need him to carry that forward. He is likely to be top scorer for Big Blue most nights and can shoot and make it to the rim.
Ignas Brazdeikis is a frosh forward from north of the border. So far he has looked good at 15ppg. He is another wing that can do a bit of everything. The Wolverines are still defining roles for this season.
Last year Michigan was an elite defensive team. Looks like that has carried forward. The competition was light but they only gave up 37 and 44 points in their first two games. Very stingy.
Villanova is coming off a championship so there is no reason to feel sorry for them for having lost a number of key contributors. Their ranking is a tribute to the development of the program.
Phil Booth has two rings and is finally getting his shot to lead the team. He is scoring 20ppg and could be the player of the year in the Big East this season.
Eric Paschall might not be as talented as Omari Spellman but it looks like he can slide into his role and put up points while being a beast on the boards. 18 points and 8 boards in just 23 minutes per game is impressive.
Jahvon Quinerly is slated to be the next star but the highly touted frosh is still feeling his way at this level. Luckily there are a number of established players that can carry the load until he finds his game. When he does look out.

Free Michigan Wolverines vs. Villanova Wildcats NCAAB Prediction:
I guess this has to be considered a revenge spot but these teams are actually very different.
No line posted yet but I would think the home team would be favoured and will be motivated too even though they got the win last time.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: OVER
Still some things to learn about both teams. This one could be close or a home team blowout. I don’t see the opposite. Contrast in styles too.
