The Texas Southern Tigers and Michigan Wolverines face off on Saturday in a Round of 64 college basketball showdown at Mackey Arena. 

The Texas Southern Tigers played in one of the play in games on Thursday and they were able to come away with a victory. Texas Southern faced off with Mount St. Mary’s and they were able to come away with the 60-52 victory. John Walker III was the best player for Texas Southern in that last game putting up 19 points and nine rebounds. Texas Southern overall has a 17-8 record and they are a team that is veteran lead which has helped them down the stretch this season. Texas Southern has won ten games in a row and they have covered the spread in eight of those games. MIchael Weathers has been the best player overall this season averaging 16.2 points while shooting 48 percent from the field.

On the other side of this matchup is the Michigan Wolverines who sit with a 20-4 record overall but they have some issues coming into this game. Isaiah Livers is one of the best players on the team but he is dealing with a foot injury and will be out for this game. Michigan on the season is averaging 76.2 points per game while their defense is giving up 65.4 points per game. Michigan is shooting 48.3 percent from the field and 38.7 percent from behind the three point line. Overall Hunter Dickinson has been the best player for Michigan averaging 14.2 points while shooting 59.9 percent from the field.


The over is 10-2-1 in Texas Southern’s last 13 games played on Saturday. The over is 9-4-1 in Texas Southern’s last 14 non-conference games. The under is 13-6 in Michigan’s last 24 games played on Saturday. 

Michigan is no doubt the better team, but Texas Southern is a veteran led team, and they are going to find success in this game. I don’t think Texas Southern comes away with a victory, but they are going to do enough to come away with a cover of the spread. Back Texas Southern against the spread.
