ATLANTA (AP) — If it seems like this game is going faster than the first semifinal that’s because there is more of a flow to it. It probably won’t turn into the foul-fest that slowed down the Louisville-Wichita State matchup.
Michigan doesn’t foul much, and the Wolverines don’t draw very many fouls either. At the end of the first half with Michigan leading 36-25 only eight fouls have been called.
Louisville and Wichita State combined for a total of 43 fouls.
On offense, Michigan is getting contributions from its bench. Caris LeVert — who at one point looked like he might redshirt the season — has made a couple 3-pointers. He had 11 3-pointers all season before the national semifinal.
Spike Albrecht has also hit one from beyond the arc.
