Does Michigan double Luka, or let Luka get his like they did last year and focus on trying to shut down the rest of the team?
I doubt they double him with Dickinson in the game.

Dickinson concerns me. He’s a load in there, and with some experience playing against Luka in offseason workouts he isn’t going to be intimidated or surprised by a lot of his moves.

I’m betting Luka has some things in store that Dickinson hasn’t seen.

I can’t remember his name off the top of my head, but the guard off the bench (transfer from Wake) for Michigan is damn good. He will harrass whatever guard they put him on.

Teske was just a big body that Garza could beat with skill. Dickinsons arms are so long that he recovers defensively out of nowhere. Michigan will sub Davis in when Garza sits but also likely try to get him to use all 5 of his allotted fouls if he’s in when Garza is.

I’m not really worried about Iowa offensively as I think this game will look a lot like the Michigan-Ohio State game. Michigan doesn’t really have a player Iowa can hide bohannon on on defense. Smith and Brooks both drive and kick as good as anyone in the league. Livers as well. Wagner, Smith, Livers, Brooks and Brown are all good shooters and like I said above, Dickinsons arms are so long he grabs a ton of offensive boards. Their only shitty player if you can call him that is Johns.

Iowa just needs to be close to matching their 3s with their own. Assume you’re going to give up 30-39 points from 3 point range. Michigan’s last 2 games have been close but both Ohio State and Wisconsin made idiotic plays in the last 3 minutes that took a 3 or 4 point game to 7 or 8. They also don’t miss free throws.

Im most worried about the 12 minute to 8 minute stretch in the first half. Fran is going to throw the usual rotation out there, Michigan goes on a little run to take a 4 point game to a 10ish point game and the rest of the game is basically played at that spread similar to last years game up there.
That’s a lot of words to say Iowa need to score more points than Michigan to win the game.

Sure. I think a lot of Luka’s game is the footwork and deception on the post. If someone has experience playing against that its easier to defend. Of course Luka can counter that. Just saying its not a clear advantage.

Dickinson also runs the floor well, as does Luka. If refs give Luka the benefit then advantage Iowa.

Luka on the SVP podcast mentioning Hunter Dickinson.

He's going to give him something Thursday.

Has the Big Ten said how they are going to handle the seeding? Michigan is only going to play 17 conference games and Purdue only 19 conference games.

Are they going off win percentage?

Vitale wrote a kids book and gave a signed copy to my daughter which I thought was pretty awesome baby
I saw Vitale last February at the restaurant he frequents in Sarasota. Sat with him and discussed basketball and all he does for childhood cancer for awhile. It was a cool experience. Even helped him send an email to Michael Irvin because he couldn't figure out how to do it from his phone. CSB.

Nice. My buddy played his course last week. Said it’s good, not great.

Michigan can lose this one and still very easily win the league and earn a 1-seed, all while boosting the douche's overall profile. Juwan Howard will purposely tank it tonight if he wants me to think he's a cool dude.

Show up, play hard and play smart - while making a few more FTs than usual.

Iowa does those things, I can't be mad, even with an L.

Maybe, just maybe, people will start to realize how important Connor is to this team. And Jack was to this team.

Can’t really expect any different of a result when Garza plays like dog shit. He’s going to need to start passing better out of the post when/if he runs into another post player like Dickinson moving forward.
