that makes one of us
Heres episode 9 of inside michigan basketball. Great feature on the OSU game and covers the Wisconsin mess. Also covers the ladies win against the Illini. MSU lost so no harm but Sunday will be a MONSTER game they must be focused to win this game. Enjoy and BEAT STATE!!! GO BLUE!!
I think Brian pointed this out, but in recent games against MSU, IU, Iowa, OSU, and now Wisconsin, there has been that one guy we cant stop.
MSU: Harris 27 points 36% of team's points (win)
Indiana: Ferrel 27 points 43% of team's points (loss)
Iowa: Marble 26 points 31% of team's points (loss)
OSU: Ross 24 points 40% of team's points (win)
Wisconsin: Kaminsky 25 points 33% of team's points (loss)
Our record is 2-3 on these 5 games, but that could also be attributed to the play of Nik Staukas. However we would have beaten IU if we could somehow contain Ferrel to a good but not great 15-17 points. If we could have cut Kaminsky's production by 10 points, we are in the game till the end. I dont know if this is a major problem or not, after all our offense made up for it vs MSU and OSU, but it's really frustraring seeing one guy seemingly effortlessly beating out team.
After the most recent Bracket Matrix update (today, 1:10PM), Michigan is now the top 4 seed, unsurprisingly dropping from their previous spot as the second 3 seed.
36 brackets were updated today; here are the seeds given to Michigan and their frequency:
- 2 (one bracket -- all hail HoopsHD!)
- 3 (six brackets)
- 4 (21 brackets -- including ESPN, CBS, and Yahoo)
- 5 (seven times)
- 7 (one bracket)
Once again, Drew's Bracketology, who you'll discover is a Minnesota fan if you click over to his page (or just read this sentence), is quite bearish on Michigan (and Iowa), listing both as 7 seeds. His bias does not carry over to his Gophers, though, as he has them barely in the field as a 12 seed.
Other B1G seeds according to the Matrix:
- MSU: 2 seed
- Wisconsin: 3 seed
- Iowa: 5 seed
- OSU: 6 seed
- Minnesota: 10 seed
In addition, Nebraska is now listed on two brackets as a 12 seed. For reference there are currently 81 brackets in the Matrix.
B1G teams: MSU #13, Iowa #15, Wisconsin #16, Michigan #20, OSU #24
B1G teams: MSU #14, Iowa #15, Wisconsin #18, Michigan #20, OSU #23
Well this is a rather "different" way of introducing the players. And soon you will get to the NBA like it used to be back in the 70's and early 80's when defense was something not exactly shall we say....embraced.
Let the game begin.
Despite the 75-62 loss to Wisconsin this afternoon, Michigan and Michigan State remain tied at 10-3 apiece atop of the Big Ten after Nebraska took down the No. 9 Spartans on the road 60-51.
