Can the Hollins' play lockdown defense on Burke and Hardaway without getting into foul trouble themselves?
I think the X factor will be how well Coleman plays and how well Michigan's other outside gunners shoot the ball.
Our bench has not been very productive the past two games. Meanwhile Michigan finally had a cold shooting game against Ohio.
Minnesota's advantage may be in creating an uptempo game via defensive pressure. However, if Michigan is able to run their half-court sets and get Hardaway and Burke open for good looks then Minnesota will be fighting uphill for the second straight game.
This should be a great game of contrasting styles of basketball.

Robinson is very talented, though. I'm worried about them lighting it up from the perimeter. Curious to see who they put Austin lockdown Hollins on because we need him to shut down one of their options. Wouldn't surprise me to see him on Burke.
