PFW @ Michigan
Current Records: PFW 5-5; Michigan 7-4
What to Know
The PFW Mastodons and the Michigan Wolverines will compete for holiday cheer at 7 p.m. ET Tuesday at Crisler Center. These two teams come into the contest bolstered by wins in their previous games.
PFW strolled past the Southeast Missouri State Redhawks with points to spare last week, taking the game 78-65.
Meanwhile, the Wolverines took their matchup at home this past Saturday with ease, bagging an 87-50 victory over the Southern Utah Thunderbirds. Michigan's center Hunter Dickinson did his thing and dropped a double-double on 22 points and ten boards. That makes it four consecutive games in which Dickinson has had at least ten rebounds.
The Mastodons are the clear underdogs, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. Those who got lucky with them against the spread two weeks ago might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
PFW is now 5-5 while Michigan sits at 7-4. With back-to-back wins few and far between for both teams -- PFW is 1-3 after wins, the Wolverines 2-4 this year -- a win will be a boon for either squad.
