The Michigan Wolverines and Tennessee Volunteers face off on Saturday in a Round of 32 college basketball showdown at Gainbridge Fieldhouse. 

Michigan comes into this game with an 18-14 record overall and there was some talk if they would even make it into the NCAA Tournament. On Thursday, Michigan faced off with Colorado State, and they were down 36-29 at halftime. In the second half the offense scored 46 points and they ended up winning by 12 points. The Wolverines are averaging 73 points while their defense is giving up 69.9 points per game. Center Hunter Dickinson has been the top player for Michigan averaging 18.3 points while shooting 56.3 percent from the field and 31.6 percent from behind the three point line. There are four different players that are averaging at least 10.5 points per game. If MIchigan wants to be competitive in this game, they are going to need the defense to be good early or this game could get out of hand early. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Tennessee Volunteers who sit with a 27-7 record overall and they have won eight games in a row. On Thursday, Tennessee faced off against Longwood and they had very little advancing. Tennessee was up 54-29 and they won 88-56. Tennessee is averaging 73.2 points while their defense is giving up 62.8 points per game. Tennessee has had a lot more talent on the offensive end over years past, and it’s going to be important in this game that the offense is good and that they run up the score. Kennedy Chandler has been the top player for Tennessee averaging 13.8 points while shooting 46.3 percent from the field and 37.2 percent from behind the three point line.

Michigan got out to a slow start against Colorado State and were able to come back, but a slow start in this game is going to down them. Look for Michigan to get out to that slow start, and Tennessee’s offense is going to continue to run up the score. This game is going to get ugly early, and Tennessee is going to cruise to the victory. Back Tennessee against the spread.
