The UNC Asheville Bulldogs will play the Michigan Wolverines in a non-conference game on Tuesday night at the Crisler Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan. UNC Asheville is coming off of a great season that included a trip to the NCAA Tournament, while Michigan had one of the most disappointing seasons in the country.

UNC Asheville Preview

The UNC Asheville Bulldogs were 27-8 (16-2) last year and they finished first in the Big South standings. UNC Asheville defeated Charleston Southern, USC Upstate, and Campbell in the Big South Tournament to win the Title. The Bulldogs went on to play UCLA in the NCAA Tournament, which ended in a loss. UNC Asheville scored 74.4 points per game with 34.8 rebounds per game, and 12.7 assists per game, while allowing 69.1 points against per game last year. Drew Pember averaged 20.9 points per game with 9.1 rebounds per game, and 2.3 blocks per game last year and will be back for this season. The Bulldogs shot 47.7% from the field, 69.4% on free throws, and 39% on three pointers. 

Michigan Preview

The Michigan Wolverines went 18-16 (11-9) last season and they finished tied for fifth in the Big Ten standings with three other teams. Michigan had a ton of talent on their team last year, but they lost quite a few close games and had some very questionable coaching throughout the year. The Wolverines lost to Rutgers in their first game of the Big Ten Tournament by a score of 62-50. Michigan did play in the NIT, where they defeated Toledo and lost to Vanderbilt. Michigan scored 73.4 points per game with 36.7 rebounds per game and 12.2 assists per game, while allowing 69.6 points against per game last year. Michigan lost their three leading scorers from last year, but they do return Dug McDaniel, who averaged 8.6 points per game, 3.6 assists per game, and 3.1 rebounds per game. Michigan shot 44.7% from the field, 70.3% on free throws, and 34.6% on three pointers.


Michigan comes into this game with plenty of question marks after last season’s debacle, and they are definitely not as talented as they were last season. UNC Asheville is coming off of a great season and returns their best player, so they should be full of confidence. I think we are going to see a ton of points in this game, as Michigan is going to struggle to get stops. Take the over here.
