FINALS WATCH: Zone busters

ATLANTA (AP) — Michigan wants to follow the same gameplan it executed in the first half, showing millions how to break down a zone:

Make 3-pointers. Move the ball into the post, then let the big fella create.

Forward Mitch McGary has four assists, yes, assists, to go with his six points and seven rebounds. Michael Albrecht and Caris Levert are 4 for 5 from 3-point range. No surprise, then, that Michigan is winning this thing by 11 as the second half gets under way.
