    Conference: B1G

    • Nebraska Men's basketball has never won a game in Ann Arbor, 0-10 lifetime. The closest they've been is 6 points, twice.
    • In the 9 games since putting up 20 vs Nebraska, Brandon Johns has scored 10 points.


    Player to watch: Hunter Dickenson 

    The offense runs through the massive Dickenson who rarely leaves the court. Besides excelling at rebounding and converting in the paint, Dickenson is also a gifted passer, able to work out of double teams.  He'll occasionally pop a 3, currently 9-25 on the year.


    Player to watch:  Caleb Houstan


    As you can see from this game chart, the success of Michigan thus far has correlated with the offensive output of 5 star Freshman Caleb Houston. Last time vs Nebraska he put up a 16 and 6.

    The Skinny: 

    Michigan has been up and down this year but boy were they up when they came in completely demolished Nebraska in Lincoln in December. They recently rolled Indiana and then were rolled by Michigan St.  Tonight is a get right game for the Wolverines.


    Nebraska still has no earthly idea how to win a close game but with the ever improving Bryce McGowens and the return of Trey McGowens, they at the very least haven't completely folded.  The return of Alonzo Verge will add another shot creator to the lineup but can Nebraska get 20 locked in minutes from him?  The rest of the team seems to be shooting the ball ok from outside with the exception of Keisei Tominaga who has gone from taking some bad outside shots to no outside shots.  Michigan doesn't have tall guards like Rutgers so it's a better play for him here.  The guards matter because with Trey McGowens back, KT, AZ, and Kobe are competing for minutees.


    Nebraska has never beaten Michigan in Ann Arbor. It would be the upset of the year if this team could pull it off.


    Prediction: Michigan 87 - Nebraska 70
