Michigan vs Ohio State Preview

This will be the first time these legendary rivals have faced each other while both being ranked in the top five, at least in basketball. Per 247 Sports, OSU is 12-10 all-time against teams ranked in the top 10 (and 6-3 against teams ranked in the top-five). Seeding for the upcoming NCAA Tournament is also at stake for both teams, with No. 1 seeds still possible for each squad. A loss changes that, so the winners of this one will have a few extra bragging rights this time around.

The Wolverines are led by 7’1, 260-pound freshman Hunter Dickinson, who is averaging 14.6 points and 7.8 boards a game. Dickinson will be guarded by savvy Ohio State senior forward Kyle Young, who is known for his physical play inside the paint and on the glass. If Young can keep the Michigan freshman in check, it will likely be a huge factor in the game.

Michigan head coach Juwan Howard, who knows and understands this rivalry from a player’s perspective, having been a part of the famed early 1990s squad that took down a then top-ranked Buckeyes team in the 1992 NCAA tournament, will also be a key factor. Despite only losing once this season (to Minnesota), Howard has come under fire by some critics, and a win here could go a long way to silencing the doubters.

“We trust (coach) Howard, we trust the whole coaching staff,” Wolverines forward Isaiah Livers said heading into Sunday’s matchup. “We trust each other most importantly.”

The Buckeyes have won seven in a row, most recently taking down Penn State, 92-82. EJ Liddell leads the way for OSU, averaging 15.5 points and 6.6 rebounds per game. Ohio State is scoring 78.1 points a game, while the Wolverines are averaging 78.4 per contest, so this should be an evenly matched and entertaining battle, to say the least. Whatever the outcome, it’s clear both sides are looking forward to this game in a big way.

“You live for these days and these games,” Michigan point guard Mike Smith said. “It’s going to be a championship-caliber game for sure. We work so hard to play in these games. It’s prime time. It’s going to be fun. I’m really excited for this.”

“I think the best way to honor a rivalry is to respect it for what it is and to try to bring your best stuff to it,” Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann said.  “Now it is one game, and we’ve got three more after that. But I do think that all that’s around this game makes it a fun one for college basketball and a fun one for our fans. Obviously, there’s probably more attention because we’re only playing once and because of the season both teams have had.”

OSU won both games in the series last year, eking out a 61-58 win in Michigan, as well as a 77-63 victory at home.
