Purdue is playing some really good basketball right now but they could certainly be primed for a letdown after a big win earlier in the week.
Michigan is tied with the Boilers in the B10 standings even though the health of their star has been an issue. This team has been finding a way.
The Boilermakers are doing it the old fashioned way using a strong inside presence to win. It is working too as they are competing hard in the B10 and look like a sure thing to qualify for the big dance.
They are in the top 20 on defense and it definitely looks like they could be a tough out because they have all of that size. Size doesn’t get tired at the end of the season so it can be an advantage.
That puts a lot of pressure on players like Raphael Davis, their top scoring threat on the perimeter.
If he and the others out there are effective enough to create some breathing space for A.J. Hammons and Isaac Haas they can be really good, especially in situations where they face teams that are not great shooters because the Boilermakers can just own the boards. I like the trajectory for Purdue.
Caris LeVert was on all the watch lists coming into the season but he has played just 14 games. Still Michigan is 18-7 and winning two thirds of their games in the B10.
They have definitely exceeded my expectations.
With LeVert out the Wolverines get super balanced with three other players averaging between 10 and 12 ppg. They are all along the perimeter and are going to need to be on their game if they are to have a chance.
Inside the Wolverines do not get a lot of production. Mark Donnal and Ricky Doyle have some beef but they will be looking up in the paint. They just have to get their fair share of defensive rebounds or else it could be ugly.
Zak Irvin is still the key for Big Blue. He has not been very good but on a night where he finds the range this club can be very dangerous.
