Michigan will face Colorado State in the first game of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday afternoon (12:15 p.m., CBS), and it will be without its point guard. DeVante’ Jones is in concussion protocol, which means the Wolverines will be without their No. 2 offensive option in the most important spot of the season.
We’ve already broke down the X’s and O’s, examined David Roddy’s strengths, interviewed CSU beat writers, and podcasted about the matchup for hours, but there’s still 24 hours until the 12:15 p.m. (CBS) tip. Today’s preview re-hashes all of the details, breaks down the CSU personnel with shot charts and dives into the keys to game — including an in-depth look at how Michigan will adjust to playing without Jones.
