Breaking down the Wolverines first loss of the season

After a perfect 11-0 start for the Michigan Wolverines, a road match-up against a ranked Minnesota Golden Gophers squad proved to be too much. A tough 75-57 loss pulled the Wolverines back down to earth after an incredible start to the season.

The factors leading to this loss really compounded right from the start, where Eli Brooks was ruled out with a foot strain injury. That promoted Chaundee Brown to the starting line-up and the primary ball-defender against stand-out PG Marcus Carr for Minnesota. Add in a rough game for Hunter Dickinson, 0 points from Mike Smith, and TWENTY team turnovers, and good luck winning that game. While I have a few complaints on the refereeing in this one, Minnesota also played extremely well on both sides of the court and clearly deserved the win in this one.
