Why Michigan’s offense is struggling, and three other thoughts on Michigan hoops

Some observations aren’t worth a whole story, but are still worth discussing. Here are an assortment of stats, observations and more on Michigan basketball through 19 games. 

Today we look at why Michigan’s offense has struggled, what the Wolverines need from Jordan Poole, what happened late in the game against Minnesota and more. 

Shooting concerns

Why is Michigan’s offense sputtering? It starts with the perimeter shooting.

Throughout the summer, Spain and preseason, shooting was discussed as a potential weakness for this group. Through a couple of months, that looked almost silly. Now, it looks like a legitimate concern.

Michigan shot 37.4% from 3-point range in non-conference play and looked more than capable of spacing the floor. In Big Ten games, the Wolverines are shooting just 31.5% from long range and are ranked 8th in percentage of shot attempts from outside.
