Purdue vs Michigan Preview

Michigan had a tough outing against Michigan State in their last game, falling to rival Michigan State 87-69. The Wolverines defense was lacking and they allowed the Spartans to shoot a high percentage and get loose in transition.

“Last game was very disappointing to see that we allowed 54 percent,” Michigan head coach Juwan Howard said. “We eliminated the points in the paint, beat them in that category, took care of the basketball, but transition buckets were critical. Our defense will improve. I trust it will.”

Purdue didn’t have much to cheer about either in a 63-37 loss to Illinois on Sunday, setting a program record for worst shooting percentage in a game.

Head coach Matt Painter needs to see his team give more effort on the court if they want to turn things around.

“A lot of what I try to piece a team together through is your skill level and your competitive spirit,” Painter said. “Do you play hard? So the other night, when you don’t shoot the ball well and you don’t play hard also, that’s really discouraging because those are two main factors I look at when I’m evaluating somebody.

“You have to be able to play harder than your opponent and the ball has to go in the basket. Those are two pretty obvious things.”

The Purdue players reportedly got to work in a hurry, with center Matt Haarms organizing a practice on the team’s off day.

“After a poor performance, it’s about just putting your head down and working,” Haarms told the Journal Gazette. “Not saying, ‘Oh we lost, everything’s downhill from here.’ It’s really important to just keep your head up and work.

“You’ve gotta trust your work. Maybe if something like (the loss to Illinois) happens, it means you haven’t put in enough work. If you miss a shot and you’ve put enough work in, you’re going to be confident you’re going to make the next one. … We’re chasing after over-preparedness.”

The matchup to watch will be between Haarms and senior Michigan center Jon Teske, who both come in at over 7-foot.

“They use him both on the perimeter and in the low block,” Michigan coach Juwan Howard said of the task of guarding Haarms. “I’ve seen him where he’s posting up a lot, I’ve seen actions where he’s ducked in on a high-low pass, I’ve seen a few pick-and-pop shots, I’ve seen when teams sag off on him and he’s able to make them pay from the outside. He’s a very skilled player for his size.”
