Ohio State Buckeyes

The Buckeyes offense has struggled this season and stat wise they rank 100+ in most of the main categories. One reason is their leading scorer only averages 14.9 points per game. To beat Michigan they will surely need multiple players to step up and provide a lot more scoring to keep up with the Wolverines.

The Wolverines crushed Indiana this past weekend to push their conference record to 8-1. They are looking to keep pace with Michigan State an a win over the Buckeyes would do just that. Furthermore, the Wolverines can hand Ohio State another loss in hopes of bursting their NCAA tournament hopes.
The Wolverines are another team that has a decent offense, but a great defense. They are only scoring 71.7 points per game, yet they have only lost one game. Michigan will look to feed their leading scorer, Ignas Brazdeikis, and he will lead this team to another strong home performance.
The Wolverines rely on their defense more than anything this season. They only allow 56.5 points per game, which is 3rd in the country. Opponents are also shooting below 40% from the field and below 30% from the three point line. Look for this aggressive defense to continue and for Michigan to force a fair amount of turnovers.
