Michigan finally played to its potential, again, on offense, with Teske and Simpson having arguably the best games of their careers. If they can keep improving their shooting, the offense can be as good as anyone's..... Matthews is struggling of late, which is kind of disappointing, and Brazdeikis isn't playing as well, either, but I think that teams will focus less on them to provide them more opportunities if Teske and Simpson keep playing well.
The defense was good but not great. Pardon dominated inside (though for some reason he took and missed several 3s) and Taylor played well for them, too. Law being out was unfortunate for them, or they'd have probably kept it close. They also got more fast break points than Michigan usually allows. I don't expect that to happen often, though, and part of it was just lack of focus because they had a big lead so early.
I'm not sure if it's a good or bad thing to have a bye this week before going to Madison. The Kohl Center doesn't look as daunting as usual, but it's definitely one of the toughest games left.
