Michigan and Ohio State split their two regular-season matchups, with the home team winning each game. The Wolverines are playing inspired ball, winning seven of their last eight — and buoyed by their share of the conference’s regular-season title with the Buckeyes and Spartans.
U-M seems to have the “it” factor, with an improbably come-from-behind win over Minnesota in overtime yesterday. The key for the Wolverines will be getting another scorer besides Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. (Evan Smotrycz, maybe?).
Ohio State dominates the boards against Michigan, but the Wolverines have to find a way to minimize the differential.
