Matchup Breakdown: Michigan vs. Loyola

At first glance, Michigan and Loyola have several similarities. They both like to control the tempo of a game, are better on defense than offense, and don’t care for offensive rebounds. Here’s an individual breakdown of the matchups that will decide Saturday’s Final Four game (6:09 p.m., TBS).

Clayton Custer vs. Zavier Simpson

Zavier Simpson’s defense will be back in the limelight this weekend as he goes head-to-head with Loyola’s Clayton Custer. Custer leads the Ramblers in points, assists, steals and minutes per game. Custer is an elite shot maker who can score comfortably from all three levels. At 6-foot-1, Custer shoots 59% at the rim, 58% in the mid-range and 47% from beyond the arc for a 63.4 effective field goal percentage.
