Thoughts first half Michigan, Ohio
- Two reasons Ohio jumped ahead in this game: Unforced turnovers by Michigan and the Wolverines defense is not good. Ohio is getting too many good looks at the basket. There is a reason Ohio's shooting is hot.
- Trey Burke has to impose his will on this game. He didn't in the first half. If he is the best player on the floor, and one of the best in the country, this is the time to prove it.
- The crowd is overwhelmingly for Ohio. Not a surprise. Everybody is waiting for an upset. If Michigan doesn't play much better in the second half, this could be it.
- D.J Cooper has been everything Burke is supposed to be.
- Michigan has to get some offensive rebounds. It's not a strength, but against Ohio there are no excuses.
