Michigan has little trouble putting points on the board. The Wolverines average over 75 points per game (No. 23 in the nation).
They are a top-10 shooting team, knocking down 48.7 percent of the shots (No. 8).
If there is one knock on John Beilein’s ballers, it's that they just don’t get to the line very much.
This year, Michigan has only gone to the line 507 times (No. 308 in the nation). To compare, Indiana leads the Big Ten in FT attempts with 807 (No. 3 in the nation).
Without going to the line, the Wolverines forfeit the most efficient way to score.
Also, by not being more assertive with the ball around the basket, Michigan surrenders the best opportunity to limit its opponents’ best players’ minutes by getting them in foul trouble.
Even Trey Burke, the Wolverines' most aggressive player with the ball, only gets to the line about four times per game.
