What I make out of all of this
This is the best team we have seen so far this year and they are extremely athletic. If we want to steal a win at their place, we need to beat them on the glass. They lead the Big Ten in offensive rebounds, so we need to box out. They are an above average 3pt shooting team and fourth in the Big Ten in FG%.
I hope we got our road game jitters out of the way on Sunday, because "The Barn" is not going to be a very friendly atmosphere for us.
Prediction Michigan 63, Minnesota 61. In a game that goes down to a missed Minnesota three in the final seconds.
