Michigan has gotten all it can handle in an stingy, game Ohio team. The Bobcats have not been afraid of facing U-M and have led for most of the way. Ohio’s D.J. Cooper has been spectacular, with 20 points on 7-of-9 shooting. He’s hit from outside, inside and has five assists from setting up teammates inside for easy baskets.
Tim Hardaway is pacing Michigan, but Evan Smotrycz has been the secondary story, providing another scoring option with Trey Burke struggling to get going.
