Michigan-North Carolina preview

Michigan faces a ranked opponent for the first time, and doing it on the road against the defending national champion makes the test even greater for a Wolverines team looking for its fourth win in a row. While Michigan averages 78.7 points per game, North Carolina is scoring 84.8 points per game after being held to 45 points by Michigan State on Sunday. The Tar Heels made just 24.6 percent of their shots in the loss, and made just 1 of 18 shots from 3-point range.

Michigan has four players averaging double figures in scoring, led by junior guard Charles Matthews with 17.7 points per game. Junior forward Moe Wagner has had three double-doubles already this season. He is second on the team in scoring (15.3) and leads the Wolervines in rebounding with 8.6 per game. Senior forward Duncan Robinson is shooting 40.4 percent on 3-point attempts and averages 13 points. Senior guard Muhammad-Ali Abdur Rahkman is averaging 11 points per game and has 27 assists compared to just 2 turnovers this season.

The Wolverines have done a good job of taking care of the basketball this season, averaging just over 9 turnovers per game as a team and forcing 14.3 turnovers from their opponents. North Carolina is averaging 12.6 turnovers per game.

Junior forward Luke Maye leads the Tar Heels in scoring (19) and rebounding (10). Senior guard Joel Berry (15), senior forward Theo Pinson (11.2), and junior guard Kenny Williams (14) also are averaging double figures for North Carolina.

Michigan and North Carolina haven’t faced each other since the Tar Heels beat the Wolverines 77-71 in the 1993 NCAA national title game. Michigan coach John Beilein has been coaching in college for 40 seasons but this will be just his second game against UNC.

“You would be talking about my 0-for-record against North Carolina right now?” Beilein quipped during a press conference on Tuesday.

North Carolina started the season 5-0 with wins over Stanford and Arkansas. Its other victories came against Northern Iowa, Bucknell and Portland.
