What will be the GAME RESULT?

Texas: Wins or Single Digit Loss

@ Michigan: Wins By Double Digits


The line for this game is Michigan by 11 points.

Michigan looks to beat Texas for the third time in as many years when it hosts the Longhorns on Tuesday. The Wolverines cruised past Texas 79-65 in the third round of the 2014 NCAA Tournament before downing the Longhorns 78-72 in the Battle for Atlantis in 2015, and they hope to continue their recent dominance of Big 12 opponents by improving to 7-1 against the conference since 2011-12.

Kerwin Roach Jr. scored 12 of his team-high 16 points from the free-throw line against Alabama to finish in double figures for the fifth time in six games this season. Sophomore Tevin Mack added 11 points and seven rebounds in his first career start as Smart inserted Mack and Andrew Jones into the starting lineup at the expense of Eric Davis Jr. and Kevin Yancy.

Sophomore center Moritz Wagner led the way with a career-high 20 points on 7-of-8 shooting from the field against Kennesaw State. Zak Irvin added 19 points to finish in double figures for the seventh time in eight games, D.J. Wilson scored 15 points and pulled down 11 rebounds for his second double-double of the season and Derrick Walton Jr. produced 13 points and a season-high eight assists against the Owls.

Michigan has won three of the last four meetings with Texas.

The Wolverines have committed fewer than 10 turnovers in four of eight games this season.

The Longhorns have shot less than 40 percent from the floor in three of their last four games.
