University of Michigan head coach John Beilein is in his twelfth season on the bench in Ann Arbor with expectations mounting after making it to the 2018 NCAA Finals, losing to Villanova. Departures to Moritz Wagner, Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman, and Duncan Robinson should have meant the program would be in a rebuilding year.

However, it’s not been the case as their suffocating defense has been the catalyst to an undefeated season.

Forward Isaiah Livers (7.9) ppg is questionable tonight with a back injury which could play a factor tonight as the Kalamazoo native can do a bit of everything for the team. In his absence, Austin Davis (1.6) ppg along with Brandon Johns (1.4) are getting valuable playing time which will pay dividends as the season progresses.

The Wolverines have been 16-0 three times in the history of the basketball program while they seek their 14th consecutive Big Ten Conference victory.

Leading scorer Ignas Brazdeikis (16.0) points per contest are efficient inside and out but will see plenty of pressure from an Illinois team that won’t mind playing a small lineup.

The best NCAA Basketball Handicapper believes Michigan must stick to their game plan as the Illini will try to get them out of rhythm.

 

 

 

Bovada.Lv, list the Michigan Wolverines at 15/1 to win the 2019 Big Ten Conference title.

 

 

 

With access to alumni and high school coaches in talent-rich Chicago the University of Illinois has to good of a recruiting base to be struggling.

News of the Kofi Cockburn commitment is good news among the loyal Illini basketball follower; the seven-foot five-star is the second big man to give a verbal to Illinois, Antwan January is the other. Both players like the family atmosphere instilled by Underwood; they also are confident they’ll instrumental in getting back to the winning ways at the University of Illinois.

After Loyola of Chicago made it to 2018 Final Four as a Mid Major program, all coaches in the area are feeling pressure to duplicate the feat.

For now, the Illini hope to break a 13 game losing streak against ranked opponents tonight on their home floor. For that to happen, sophomore guard Trent Frazier (14.9) ppg, and Chicago freshman Ayo Dosunmu (12.9) to play near flawless basketball against a superior defensive opponent. Underwood will do everything to force turnovers and play with an uptempo style.
