The Sunday match is scheduled for ET tips at 3:30 pm on CBS.:

Indiana dramatically hit Purdue University with nine consecutive losses in Bloomington on Thursday night.

Despite only 11 minutes of access to Trace Jackson Davis, the Hoosiers used suffocating defenses to delay the country’s number one attack with a confusing victory.

Now the focus shifts to Michigan. Michigan is anxious for Marquee’s victory in the match on Sunday. Wolverines has only two wins throughout the season against the teams currently in the top 100 of Kempomeroi, dropping from the pre-season top 10 rankings to the bottom half of the league.

Michigan has dominated the series with Indiana in recent seasons. Wolverines defeated Indiana three times in a row in Bloomington, winning eight in a row. The average winning margin is 16.6 points.

Meet Wolverine

The University of Michigan roster recorded significant sales during the off-season, and many believed that the combination of freshmen, returnees, and transfer point guards could keep the program close to the top of the Big Ten.

That’s happening because the defeat of one of the NBA’s best rookies, Franz Wagner, along with Isaia Rivers (Detroit Pistons), Chaundee Brown (G League) and Mike Smith (G League), was hurt. not. Michigan on the defensive side.

Wolverines finished fourth last season in Kempomeroi’s adjusted defense efficiency rating and had the third best two-point field goal percentage defense in the country. This season, Michigan is currently ranked 58th in the nation for Pomeroy’s adjusted defense efficiency. Its two-point field goal percentage defense ranks 153rd in the country.

The headliner for this Michigan list is in second grade Hunter DickinsonI had a hard time early in the season, but it has become stronger in the last few weeks.

The 7’1 left-handed leads Michigan with 16.4 points per game, shooting 68% in 2 seconds in Big Ten play. According to Synergy, Dickinson is rated as a post-up scorer in the 86th percentile nationwide, shooting 80% on the rim. Every hoop math..

One of Dickinson’s interesting problems this season is the inability to reach the free throw line. In four big ten games, he only tried seven free throws. His free throw rate (FTA / FGA) is 19.1% in the season, compared to 42.5% last season. Dickinson is a talented passerby from the post who can actually direct the game from the block (21.1% assist rate in big ten play).

5th grade Eli Brooks Is one of the most trusted guards in the league, defending, knocking down 3 seconds and never flipping it over. Brooks has won 36.8% of triples this season, but so far it’s not as good as 30% in Big Ten play. His 2-point field goal rate is only 38.7 percent.

Joining Brooks on the opening back court is a Coastal Carolina transfer Devante Jones And freshman wings Caleb Hustan..

Jones lost 75-67 to Rutgers on January 4, scoring no goals in 31 minutes, but averaged 14.5 points and 2.5 assists in the last two games of the team. His 3.7 assists are per game lead in Michigan, and according to Synergy, possession of a ball screen ranks 86th percentile nationwide. Jones makes 45.2 percent of his 3 in the season, but only 28.6 percent in league play.

Canadian Fustan, who was considered a lottery candidate for the season, has so far suffered from college basketball physique. The 6′-8 lbs and 205 lbs Houston are typical sizes of NBA wings. However, his three-pointer shot disappointed him in 15 games. Houstan is trying 4.8 3 pointers per game, but connecting with only 31.9% clips.

He scored 16 points this season with a 6-7 shot against one of his better performances, Maryland, but his number on the street was terrible. In Michigan’s five true road games, Houstan shoots 34 percent off the field and 20.6 percent in 3 seconds.

Another highly regarded freshman, 6ft-11 Musadia Bate From Paris, France, it starts at 4 o’clock in Juwan Howard.

Diabate is the second team to rebound at 6.1 per game, averaging 9.1 points with 58.6% of the shots from the field. Diabate has done a great finish in big ten play so far. He makes 60.7 percent of 2.

Michigan’s rotation isn’t particularly deep, but Wolverine can get a boost in the depth direction. Brandon Johns Junior You can play on Sundays. The 6-foot-8 forward missed the last three games as he returned following the match against COVID-19.If Michigan gets smaller at 4, they deploy 6’7 sophomores Terence Williams Average 5 points in 16.6 minutes from the bench.

Michigan’s backup guard is a freshman Kobe buffkin When Frankie Collins.. Collins, a 6-foot-1-point guard, is a good athlete and defender, but a poor shooter (43.6 percent). The 6-foot-4 buffkin scored double digits only once this season, which is only four-eighths (22.2 percent) in three seconds this season.

Tempo free preview

(Statistics are currently for conference games only. Numbers are for Thursday games.)

Michigan is one of the best teams in the league, so rebound numbers are coming very close on Sunday afternoon. Wolverine is the third in the conference, both in terms of offensive and defensive rebound rates. Keeping Michigan away from aggressive glass and preventing second chance points is crucial for Indiana.

One outlier in Michigan’s otherwise solid offensive profile is the inability to reach the free throw line. Wolverine is at the end of the meeting with a free throw rate (FTA / FGA). Indiana was one of the best at the conference to reach the foul line, but it doesn’t have enough capital. Indiana’s free throw rate (67.6) ranks 12th in the conference throughout seven games.

What will happen

KenPom’s prediction is four times higher in Indiana, with a 64% chance of winning Hoosier. Sagarin has a rating of nearly 4 like Indiana.

In front of the noisy crowd on Thursday, we’re watching how Indiana begins following the best win of the season. Hoosiers are 12-0 in the Assembly Hall, but tend to start late in the first and second halves.

Indiana needs far better performance from Jackson-Davis than it got for Dickinson’s size and physique on Thursday. Hoosiers also need to do another good job to take care of the ball after committing the season-a low 3 turnover against Purdue.

Sunday’s victory will put Indiana in the mark of 15 wins. This is probably the spotlight in the Associated Press’s Top 25 votes and is in the middle of a perfect home record in a league match.
