KenPom predicts a 73-70 win or 60% chance of winning. The Titans rank in the low 200's in offensive and defensive efficiency. Offensively, they only turn the ball over on 15.7% of possessions (23rd best) and shoot 37.3% from three (ranks 55th). Defensively, they defend the three well (31.4%) but are terrible rebounding allowing opponents to collect 38.8% of their misses (351st in the country). The coach's son, Antoine Davis, is a volume shooter/scorer. He uses up 35% of their possessions (8th most in the nation) and shoots the three (41.9%) better than he shoots the two (38.7%). Would be good if the Norse can get this one and not go 0-for-Michigan.

95-73 Norse win. Norse shoot 57% from field, 44% from three and 92% from the line. Good bounce back after Oakland loss. Drew with 23, Tyler 20. Davis goes for 33 for UDM.
