Michigan and Rutgers faced each other twice in the last six weeks so there won’t be many secrets when the two teams take the floor on Thursday afternoon in Indianapolis (noon, BTN).
When they take the court on Thursday afternoon, fans will not be in attendance.
The Wolverines won both games, 60-52 at the RAC and 69-63 at Madison Square Garden, but both contests were competitive affairs. While it’s not actually more difficult to beat a team three times, you can bet that the Scarlet Knights will be anxious to demonstrate improvement over the last two contests.
