It felt like every shot was going down for Michigan. The Wolverines shot 57.1% from three (12-21). All five Wolverine starters had at least 11 points or more with Hunter Dickinson leading the way at 22 points. Purdue's bench did outscore Michigan's 22-2, but the starters were the biggest factor. 

Michigan's defense locked down everyone except Jaden Ivey who had 18 on the night. Other than Ivey, the rest of Purdue's starters totaled 18 points.
