Michigan Basketball vs. Bryant: Game Time, TV Schedule, Live Stream


The Michigan basketball team (9-3) will take on the Bryant (2-9) at the Crisler Center at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday.

The Michigan basketball team is riding a three-game winning streak, but victories over Delaware State, Northern Kentucky, and Youngstown State means they haven’t exactly been playing top competition.

The Wolverines’ last game against a Big Ten (or NCAA Tournament) quality team came as a 28-point loss to SMU back on December 8. Previous wins against Texas and NC State count as solid victories over name-brand programs, but Michigan also has lost to Xavier and UConn which brings their overall record against “major” programs to 2-3.

The rest of the schedule has been comfortable victories (7-0) against mid-major and smaller college programs.

The Big Ten portion of the schedule begins one week from tonight, but one has to wonder if the schedule the Michigan Wolverines have played will truly have them prepared to face the night-in, night-out test the Big Ten provides.

For the time being, however, the Wolverines should enjoy another comfortable victory against a small conference opponent. Bryant is one of the 25 worst teams in Division I according to both the Pomeroy Ratings and the Massey Ratings.

Both the Vegas line and the Massey prediction peg the final margin to be a 27 or 28 point Michigan victory.

But even if the game probably won’t provide the sort of back-and-forth action that makes college basketball great, there are precious few better ways to spend your Christmas Eve Eve than curled up in front of Big Ten Network with the people you love most in this world.
