How to beat Michigan

The Wolverines are mainly a man-to-man team, but they will play some zone from time to time. Michigan will get out and pressure the ball, but it likes to stay packed inside the arc. Look for Michigan to switch 1 through 4 on ball screens. Michigan is solid defensively, but it will get lost on switches at times and will have mismatches when Burke switches onto a 4 man.

It is very important to have great spacing on the court. Michigan can be taken off the dribble when there are driving lanes created by good spacing. It also will be very important to move the basketball from side to side. Michigan's defense is very good on the first side of the court, but it will have breakdowns with ball movement.
