Illinois to test Michigan's perimeter defense

While Michigan encountered some trouble guarding the three point shot in the first half against Purdue, it's safe to say that was mostly due to tremendous individual shooting by the Boilermakers than any significant defensive failure on the part of the Wolverines.

Beilein referenced the second half of the Purdue game as the standard for guarding shots from beyond the arc against Illinois.

"I hope we do as good a job on those two as we did on Byrd in the second half," Beilein said.
