Game Preview

Two teams coming off disappointing losses will look to bounce back at one of college basketball’s oldest arenas on Sunday afternoon when Michigan and Penn State meet at The Palestra in Philadelphia.

Michigan (6-8, 1-2 Big Ten) is coming off a 73-71 home loss on Thursday to Minnesota and is reeling while on a three-game losing streak and defeats in six of their last eight contests.

As was the case last year, Michigan is struggling to pull out close games. The Wolverines are 1-5 in games decided by six points or less.
