2022-23 Season

Five takeaways from Michigan’s win over Nebraska

Michigan handled its business against Nebraska on Wednesday night, earning a 93-72 win in a prolific night on offense.

Here are five takeaways from the win:

Michigan offense thriving

In Wednesday’s 93-72 win, all five starters reached double-digit scoring in one of the better outings of the season. But that anomaly is even more astounding considering one player’s stats.

As my colleague Jared Greenspan wrote, Hunter Dickinson didn’t even score until it was 41-25 with 4:02 left in the first half.

That’s not because Dickinson shot particularly cold, nor did Nebraska completely isolate him from the ball. Rather, the offense clicked around him.

“We’re figuring out our spots, picking and choosing when we get our spots,” Dug McDaniel said. “And I feel like all of our guys have been aggressive, taking the pressure off of Hunt so he doesn’t have to do so much. But that also creates for him when we’re aggressive because the defense can’t help off of us as much.”
