“Michigan hasn’t played the better Big 10 teams, got smoked by Minnesota on the road… Hard to guess how they play today- smart money is on Ohio State,” he tweeted.

With the win, Michigan moves to 16-1 on the season. Since their long pause due to COVID-19, the Wolverines have come back and won three in a row.
Right now, Juwan Howard’s team is a bona fide No. 1 seed and looking like a legitimate national title contender.
