Game 1: Michigan Tech at Michigan Pre Game

Basics
WHAT: Michigan vs. Michigan Tech
WHEN: November 11th, 7 PM EST
WHERE: Crisler Arena, Ann Arbor
TV: ESPNU
AUDIO: MGoBlue
Tickets: Of course they are available! Students also get in free with M-Card.

Preview (D2 Bullet Edition):

  • Who starts? I think Ant Wright is better coming off the bench than starting and Peedi played great in the exhibition contest. I would expect to see DeShawn start at the four from here on out.
  • I’m going to be watching the defense and rebounding for the most part. Michigan should dominate in the paint against a small Michigan Tech team even with the depth issues in the post. Michigan Tech’s tallest player is a 6-8 freshman.
  • Of course keep an eye on the point guard spot. Merritt will probably get the start again but will Kelvin have a better night than his lackluster exhibition game?
  • Interestingly enough, Tech only lost by 5 points to the Spartans last year in exhibition play but didn’t have a remarkable season beyond that, finishing 13-14 overall.
  • Also, if anyone gets to Crisler early, I’d love to hear a report on how Northeastern or IUPUI looked.
