Michigan basketball coach John Beilein and members of the No. 22 Michigan basketball team met with the media on Friday to discuss the Wolverines' matchup with No. 3 Ohio State.

Beilein: He said the players are spending Friday's practice with more of an emphasis on their improvements (even noting that the team will be doing drills they did in October) and that Saturday's practice will be more Ohio State-focused. The team leaves Saturday night for Columbus.

ON THE KEY TO BEING COMPETITIVE: Beilein point edout that last year the team played with poise in its 62-53 loss in Columbus and in the Wolverines' Big Ten Tournament semifinal loss to Ohio State. "What they've been able to do is things that only [Jared] Sullinger has been able to do," Beilein said. "Get traffic rebounds with four guys around. Somehow he ends up with the ball. And at the rim. And getting to the foul line as well. … It's more just keepin him in check somewhat."
