2021-22 Season

Notebook: Michigan searching for offensive solutions

It’s no secret that Michigan’s offense has struggled this season. The Wolverines are ranked 111th in Bart Torvik’s offensive efficiency metrics with preseason priors removed, 268th in turnover rate, and 281st in 3-point accuracy. In their three losses, they’ve managed to score a meager .87 points per possession.

They failed to top that mark just three times in 28 games a year ago.

There’s a laundry list of necessary improvements on the offensive end, but associate head coach Phil Martelli told reporters that it starts with making shots and playing faster.

“You have to have pace so that the game is a smooth game and not this root canal without Novocain,” Martelli explained. “That’s the way it feels right now. There’s a grind and we want to get into a flow. Spacing will come from better pace and better shot-making.”
