The Michigan basketball team takes on Purdue on Saturday afternoon. Here’s how you can find the game on TV or watch online.
The Michigan basketball team will welcome the Purdue Boilermakers to Ann Arbor on Saturday afternoon for a Big Ten Conference matchup. For the Wolverines, this will provide an opportunity to pad their tournament resume and get one step closer to locking up an at-large bid.
A win today against Purdue might not exactly clinch a tournament bid for Michigan, but it would put them on the cusp at the very least.
Purdue comes into the game ranked No. 14 in the nation in the AP poll. They sit in first place in the Big Ten with a 12-3 conference mark and 23-5 overall record. The Boilermakers have already locked up their own tournament bid, regardless of how they finish out the regular season or play in the conference tournament.
Michigan enters the game with an 18-10 overall record and an 8-7 conference mark. The Wolverines are in seventh place in the Big Ten but remain only a single game behind Northwestern, Michigan State, and Minnesota who are tied for fourth place.
With just three contests remaining, there may not be enough games remaining in the season for Michigan to claim a spot in the top four and receive the associated double bye in the Big Ten Tournament.
Here’s all the information you’ll need to find today’s game on TV or streaming online.
Next up for the Wolverines will be a road trip to Evanston, Illinois to take on the Northwestern Wildcats.
