Michigan coach John Beilein met with media on Friday to discuss his 13th-ranked Wolverines and their upcoming game against Iowa. Here are a few of the key points he touched on:
- ON THIS STRETCH IN THE SCHEDULE: "It’s not the NBA schedule," Beilein said. "But it probably gets as close as it can be to it during this middle of January." The team didn’t practice yesterday, but had an hour and a half of film Friday morning and practice Friday afternoon. The Wolverines travel to Iowa Friday night and Beilein said they will watch game tape there, but there will be no shootaround before the noon tip. Beilein said this stretch will help with preparation for the Big Ten tournament and the NCAA tournament.
- HOW DANGEROUS IS IOWA: The Hawkeyes are coming off two 25-plus point losses to No. 6 Ohio State and No. 10 Michigan State. Beilein said he forgot about those, because Iowa has beaten Minnesota and Wisconsin on the road. "That’s who they are," Beilein said. "They are closer to the team that we saw that really had Wisconsin down the whole game at Wisconsin."
