Stat Tracker: U-M home vs. away

Every college basketball coach in America will talk, at length, about the difficulties of playing on the road in front of a hostile crowd.

But the fact is, teams have to learn how to do it.

The young Wolverines have, at times, looked great away from the friendly confines of Crisler Arena. Days after a tough loss at Ohio State, they bounced back and outpaced Minnesota in the infamous Barn, 83-75.

In Michigan's next road game, it toppled Illinois, 74-60. The same Illinois team who notched a home-court upset of Big Ten heavyweight Indiana a few weeks later.

But overall, the road has not been kind to the team.

The Wolverines are 4-4 in true road games and have dropped their last three consecutive away games - all three to teams that are currently in the top four of the Big Ten standings: 81-73 at Indiana, 65-62 (OT) at Wisconsin and 75-52 at Michigan State.

In this week's Stat Tracker, we compare the Wolverines' statistics averages in home, road and neutral-site games.

The results are, in some places drastic.

Michigan is a perfect 14-0 at home, winning every game by an average of 22.7 points.

Just two of the Wolverines' home games have been decided by single digits: a 79-72 win over North Carolina State and a 76-74 slugfest win in overtime over Ohio State.

In eight attempts, Michigan has posted just two double-digit wins in true road games: 94-66 at Northwestern and 74-60 at Illinois.

Compared to their home game stats, the Wolverines' road performances have resulted in a lower field goal percentage (.505 to .469), a lower three-point field goal percentage (.431 to .388), fewer rebounds per game (35.6 to 32.6), fewer assists per game (16.9 to 13.0) and more turnovers (8.2 to 11.6).

At home, Michigan is averaging 79.8 points per game (which would rank fifth nationally). One the road, the team averages 70.6 points per game (which would rank 97th nationally).

At home, the Wolverines are surrendering just 56.9 points per game (which would rank 12th nationally). On the road, they're surrendering 68.0 points per game (which would rank 214th nationally).
