Michigan Basketball: How Does Team Match Up with Other Big Ten Title Contenders?
Greg Bartram-US PRESSWIRE

The Michigan Wolverines have more than enough talent to merit their No. 5 preseason ranking, but they’re still in for a ferocious battle in the Big Ten conference. Rivals Michigan State and Ohio State both have serious Final Four aspirations of their own, and Indiana is the top-ranked team in the nation.

Any one of those four teams has a serious chance to take home the conference crown, which will likely come with an inside track on a No. 1 seed in March. With that situation in mind, their head-to-head meetings will be played for even higher stakes than the usual black-and-blue Big Ten clashes.

Read on for a breakdown of the Wolverines’ matchups with each of the Spartans, Buckeyes and Hoosiers as they jockey for the top spot in the conference.
