(CBS Detroit)- There are just a few weeks left before Selection Sunday and the opportunities for teams to improve their tournament resumes are shrinking.
“They have a really talented backcourt with Walker back running the show and Washington is not afraid of any shot. Big shot, important shot, game-winning shot, that kid will take it. The kid Young up front is sort of the glue guy. They have a mature outlook as a team. Each guy knows his responsibility and obviously the big player is Liddell,” said Raftery. How does Ohio State defend the 7’1″ 255 pound Dickinson? The freshman is a handful down low but double teaming or keeping an extra eye on him defensively can leave teams open to what Michigan does so well, cutting off the ball.
“Michigan is a really good diving team. If you ball watch, they all cut great. I’ve seen Brooks get a back cut maybe eight or nine times this year because defenses are all looking to help out or get a hand in on the big guy,” said Raftery.
