Out-of-bounds plays and after timeout situations can feel mundane when compared to transition offense or gaudy statistics but they are far from insignificant. While they aren’t the most prevalent scenarios by any means – 8% of Michigan’s logged half court possessions in Synergy Sports are baseline out of bounds plays, 5% are sideline out of bounds plays and 22% originate after a timeout – but they can be vitally important.
Big Ten teams average 5.4 possessions sideline or baseline out of bounds plays per game. That’s not enough to impact every game but it is enough to make a difference in close games.

If the Michigan Wolverines win a share of the Big Ten championship on Sunday, they should immediately do two things.
First, of course, would be to cut down the nets. But at the same time, they might as well lift Trey Burke's jersey into the Crisler Center rafters.
Not only because it will give the Wolverines two conference titles in his two seasons two more than the Fab Five...
Sunday is not just Michigan’s biggest home game of the season, the Wolverines will also host their biggest recruiting day as well.

The Big Ten widely has been considered the best conference in the nation this season, and it may be no surprise the league race has come down to the final day with four teams seeking at least a share of the championship.
