Another tune up for Michigan today, this one against the Savannah State Tigers. Savannah State is 4-1 with wins coming over Brewton Parker, North Florida, Coastal Carolina, and New Orleans and a 32 point loss to Clemson. Sadly you will have to try to catch this one on BTN.com if you can’t make the game.
Savannah State averages 72 possessions per game compared to Michigan’s 64 so we could see another faster game. Savannah State is just not efficient scoring the ball, they rank 309th in efficiency and have an eFG% of 43.2%. As a team Savannah State turns the ball over on 26.8% of their possessions, good for 19.4 per game. On the other hand they average only 13 assists per game.
The players to watch for Savannah are versatile forwards Chris Linton (9.4ppg, 6rpg, 2.6apg) and Rashad Hassan (12.8ppg, 5.8rpg). They also don’t have a lot of size, their only player over 6-7 is 6-10 junior Glen Izevbigie who averages only 7.6 minutes per game.
This should be an easy win for Michigan against a team that was clearly outmatched by their only high major opponent. Michigan needs to take care of business before their big test in College Park next Wednesday.
