The Boilermakers are one of the best shooting teams in the country.
The Wolverines have held up well on that end of the court by running teams off the three-point line and ending possessions with defensive glass-crashing.
The Wolverines slow the pace of games to a crawl (336th in the nation in adjusted tempo), but they don’t fritter away their limited number of possessions, turning the ball over only 14.1% of the time, better than all but one other DI team (Saint Joseph’s).
The Buckeyes could lose in the quarterfinals on Friday and this season would still go down as a resounding success, but their defensive solidity could make them a tough out in the tourney.
