The Wolverines and the Longhorns will face off in the fifth-place game of the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament. This is an important game for Michigan as the Maize and Blue can earn their first quality win of the season tonight. However, it will not be easy. Texas is not a very good shooting team, but they feature 6-foot-10, 290-pound center Cameron Ridley, who can be a force in the paint on both ends of the floor. If Michigan can box him out and limit his effectiveness inside, the Wolverines will like their odds to win. You can read more about Ridley and other key matchups in my extensive preview for the game.
