18 games in ....no real discussion on thread on this years team, so thought I would create one before they are eliminated from any post season play. The are currently 12-6 and holding down an overall 11th place in the B1G standings at 2-3. Losses to Iowa, Illinois and Maryland....wins over Penn State and Nebraska Seniors Derrick Walton Jr and Zack Irvin are trying to hold a team that still relies on the three to win games and although they proficient in it, their defense can't make for it. I believe they are near the top of the conference in 3 point percentage and the bottom of the conference in defending the three. They are number one in the nation in both the fewest turnovers and fouls per game. They are also in the top 10 in free throw shooting Still no one gives them a chance to win because they are too inconsistent. They have five blow wins this season all over non conference opponents and four of those were at Crisler. Except for a double digit loss to Illinois, all of the other 4 conference contests have been settled by 7 points or less. They beat Nebraska yesterday 91-86 and actually led wire to wire...but could never put the Huskers away despite going up 10 on two different occasions in the second half. It was 54th win in the Belien Wolvering era where the team had scored at least 80 points. The Wolverines are now 54-3 in the Belien era when the team scores at least 80 points. Unfortunately 2 of those 3 losses have come this season, a blowout loss to UCLA and an upset OT loss to Iowa on New Years Day. The next game is at 18th rated Wisconsin where the second place Badgers are the only team in conference who have yet to lose at home....and the Wolverines have yet to win on the road.
