Michigan Basketball: Wolverines lead Cardinals in one important statistic

Very few are predicting Michigan basketball, the fourth-ranked team in the nation, to beat Louisville, the No. 1 team in the nation. ESPN gives the Cardinals a 78% chance to win the game and the line is set at somewhere around -5 in favor of the home team. Some argue the Wolverines should be on top after the terrific showing in the Bahamas, but the Cardinals, it is said, have the talent and scoring prowess.

However, talent is subjective and we all saw how UNC’s Cole Anthony, the No. 1 PG from the 2019 class, was outscored by Eli Brooks, a guy who barely broke into the ratings.
