After a lackluster start to the season, Michigan played its best game of the season at home on Saturday against San Diego State, with a 72-58 win.
Now, they look to Lincoln to open the scoring for the Big Ten against Fred Hoiberg’s Nebraska Cornhuskers, who have lost two in a row to quality opponents in North Carolina State (in four innings) and Indiana.

Michigan vs. Prediction and Selection. Nebraska
This is setting up for a destructive Michigan victory. The werewolves have struggled to get out of the gate, but are in a great position to dominate a dominant Nebraska club.
The Cornhusker has shot just over 27% from out of the arc this season and is terrible on glass. Meanwhile, Michigan has been plagued by poor sales and free throws. The team is 259th in rotation and has to defend the rock against a chaotic Nebraska defense, the top 100 in overturning, but I can’t see the team shooting 66% from the charity strip all year.
We saw comebacks from Michigan against San Diego State on Saturday, mostly freshman Caleb Houstan, who hit four out of his five three-pointers. I will count on Michigan’s talent to continue to grow into form.
I think the size of Michigan will overwhelm Nebraska with Hunter Dickinson on the low end and keep getting back on track before a full conference vehicle.
PICK: Michigan -7
