Northwestern at Michigan Breakdown & Prediction

Northwestern at No. 1 Michigan
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Venue: Crisler Center
TV: Big Ten Network
Records: Northwestern 12-9, 3-5 Big Ten; Michigan 19-1, 6-1
Northwestern stat leaders: Points – Reggie Hearn (14.0 ppg); Rebounds – Jared Swopshire (6.6 rpg); Assists – Dave Sobolewski (4.3 apg); Steals – Hearn (1.3 spg).
Michigan stat leaders: Points – Trey Burke (17.9 ppg); Rebounds – Glenn Robinson III (6.0 rpg); Assists – Burke (7.1 apg); Steals – Burke (1.4 spg).
Current Streaks: Northwestern L1, Michigan W3
Point Spread: Michigan -18
Prediction: I can’t say I expect Northwestern to put up too much of a fight, but I do think that Michigan could be looking ahead to Saturday’s game at Indiana a little bit. The Wolverines haven’t been overly impressive in their last few home games against lesser teams and the Wildcats will come out motivated after the thrashing they took at home to the Wolverines to open conference play. Michigan will win comfortably, but I think Northwestern will cover the 18-point spread. Michigan 75, Northwestern 60
