No.22 Michigan Wolverines Home Favorites Over No.20 Indiana Hoosiers On College BBall Odds
It’s a top-25 showdown in College Basketball in the Big Ten conference on Wednesday night, when the No.20 Indiana Hoosiers visit the No.22 Michigan Wolverines.
The Wolverines come into this one on the heels of a loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes on the road. But the good news is that Michigan returns to their home floor, when they have an unblemished 13-0 record so far this season.
Michigan head coach John Beilein knows that there is still much to improve upon as the Wolverines come back to Ann Arbor.
“Things we could control a little bit, standing in there, taking a charge instead of backing away and hitting somebody legally in a box out, could have made a big difference in this game,” Beilein said. “The good news is we can control those things in the future, hopefully.”
The Wolverines did shoot nearly 50 percent from beyond the arc in the losing effort to the Buckeyes, and defensively they stood their ground to try and mount a comeback in the second half.
“We know we have to do a much better job of handling their pressure offense,” Beilein said. “We have to be able to adjust to that.”
On the other side of the court, Indiana bounced back with a win in their last outing in a 03-89 victory over Iowa. The Hoosiers had not crossed the 100-point mark since 1996.
“I had a pretty easy job, just catching it and dunking it,” Indiana’s Cody Zeller said. “Our guards did a really nice job of finding me in the alley a couple times. Verdell (Jones) did a very nice job of passing tonight. I thought it was a good team effort.”
