Michigan will face Syracuse’s vaunted 2-3 zone in the Final Four on Saturday but the Wolverines will also have to stop a talented Syracuse team on the offensive end of the floor.
To further breakdown Michigan’s Final Four matchup we dug deeper into the numbers to utilize data fueled by Ken Pomeroy, Hoop-Math and Synergy Sports and examined the top eight players in the Orange rotation.
6-foot-6, 185 lbs, sophomore. 35.2 mins, 12.1 pts, 4.9 rebs, 7.4 asts, 44.2% eFG%
Favorite Offense: Creating for others off of isolation situations
Carter-Williams is a great passer, his assist rate of 41% is 11th best nationally, and he has unusual size for the point guard position at 6-foot-6. It’s worth noting that he feasted statistically during the first few months of the season, his assist rate on January 4th was 50.5%, it’s down to 41% and was just 33% in Big East play – less than Trey Burke’s Big Ten best 37%, for example.
