Welcome to Transfer Tapes, a multi-part offseason series where we watch a full game from one of Michigan’s incoming transfers. The plan is to watch a handful of historical games featuring Michigan’s incoming transfers. We can dive into stats, clips, metrics, and anything else, but nothing compares to the observations you can glean from watching an entire game.
Today, we dig into the archives for one of Tray Jackson’s most memorable games and one that Michigan fans remember. Seton Hall’s upset win at the Crisler Center two years ago, where Jackson scored 13 points off the bench playing in his home state. (Previously: Nimari Burnett vs. Olivier Nkamhoua)
Why this game? This felt like a useful starting point because we know the opposition, and it comes from Jackson’s junior year when he played more on the perimeter as a four than inside as a center. It’s just one game, and something of an outlier, but it at least has familiar context.
