Michigan: Less Than 24 Hours Away

After a week-long absence, the BU Terriers will be back in action today at 7:00pm. Michigan will be on-hand to try and avenge their quite embarrassing losses two years in a row to the Terriers in Ann Arbor. Coming off the moral victory at Duke, the Terriers come into Agganis with a swagger that can only stem from a 17-point loss to the #1 team in America.

This year's Michigan Wolverines are not the Fab Five of Webber, King, Rose, Jackson, and Howard, but they aren't exactly the guys who haven't made the NCAA tournament in this millenium under clouds of NCAA sanctions. These guys are much improved from the last two seasons, and this year may be Top 25 quality.

They've got some solid players, like Lester Abrams, Daniel Horton, and Courtney Sims, who led the team with 20 points in their opening win over Central Michigan. But the guy who could be their best player, Brent Petway, is ineligible during this semester due to not studying (or cheating off the wrong guy). And these talented Wolverines have never seemed to play up to expectations for their hot-seat coach Tommy Amaker.

BU matches up well in this game, and despite spotty rumors of Ben Coblyn in a walking cast, they have a real good chance of finishing up a three-game sweep of mighty Michigan.
