As everyone probably saw, Purdue gave Michigan trouble on Saturday by having its big man hedge really far out on Burke when Michigan tried to run the pick and roll. Burke struggled with this, seemingly because of his lack of height and because it was one of those no-fouls-called Big Ten games (contrast w/ the NW game earlier in the week). My question for people with a good understanding of basketball is this: What does Michigan do to counter the hard hedge (if that's the right thing to call it)?
“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”
