Quick Hits from the basketball press conference

Michigan coach John Beilein:

  • ON NORTHWESTERN’S PRINCETON OFFENSE: "I think [Northwestern coach] Bill Carmody probably, with no offense to anyone else, I think they probably are as innovative as anyone who runs this," Beilein said. "It’s forever changing with the game."

  • ON WHAT DEFENSES HE EXPECTS TO SEE: "They will mix up all kinds of things," Beilein said. He expects to see man-to-man, 1-3-1 zone and 2-3 matchup zone.
