A fine performance by the wolverines especially in the second half. After a 37 point win one would think that finding any criticism would be difficult. However, in the first half Michigan had too many turnovers and did not guard IUPUI three point shooters well, especially Hart. The offense performed well shooting 60% with five players scoring in double digits and ten players scoring overall. Lots of assists too. If Michigan can protect the ball better and tighten defense the season should go very well.
