Michigan played the first half like it had all the answers, but the second posed a number of questions.
Mitch McGary was sublime, hitting all the right shots and creating for his teammates. He finished the game with 10 points, 12 rebounds, and 6 assists. His first half assault on the free throw line extended was the difference early as Michigan used the 1-4 offense to great effect against Syracuse's defense.
The real troubling aspect of the game was Trey Burke's disappearing act. The sophomore was 1/8, missed free throws down the stretch, and was largely irrelevant. Of course, this wasn't a match-up made for Burke's skillset, but with Louisville coming up, he will have to bring his A-game.
One more game, y'all. Almost home.
