Michigan-Louisville 2017 NCAA Tournament preview
Don’t play mind games
Louisville coach Rick Pitino has been effusive in his praise of Michigan the last two days. After the win Friday against Jacksonville State, the veteran coach compared the Wolverines with the Golden State Warriors, given Michigan’s shooting prowess. On Saturday, Pitino said he didn’t want to press against Michigan because of its passing skills.
Louisville, however, is a wily program — and Pitino always is eager to angle for an advantage. The compliments are nice, but Michigan can’t fall into a psychological trap against the Cardinals.

Continue to shoot
Shooting has carried the Wolverines in the postseason. Michigan has won six games in a row and eight of its last 10 with some hot shooting, especially from the perimeter. Michigan shot an absurd 55.2 percent (16 of 29) on 3-pointers — including an 11-for-15 effort in the second half — in the 92-91 win Friday against Oklahoma State, setting a program tournament record.
Find an inside presence
Michigan dominated outside, while Oklahoma State dominated inside. The Cowboys scored 50 points in the paint and finished with 40 rebounds to Michigan’s 21. Louisville had 36 rebounds against Jacksonville State, including 10 from guard Donovan Mitchell. Jaylen Johnson and Mathiang each average at least 5.8 rebounds a game.
Mitchell has been in a scoring slump, but Mathiang scored 18 points against Jacksonville State, and Deng Adel added 16 to provide an inside boost. Louisville has blocked 180 shots (5.5 per game) this season and is 10th in the nation in the statistical category.
