FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.
Props to a young man who recognized his deficiencies last March and worked like hell to be the leader of the team this year. Stauskas was emotional and honest with the fact that we needed more from him after the Title game last April. He vowed to hit the weights and work on his game. He did and the improvement in his game is pretty vivid. I called him to be our best player this year and am proud as hell that the kid kept his promise and put the work in. You're the man Stauskas! Go Blue!
A game like that deserves a postgame thread. That 16-point comeback was pretty impressive. Has a Beilein team ever come back from more than that? (Were we down that many to Kansas?)
How does Charlotte look? Are they a good matchup?
Michigan goes against FSU in the best remaining game in the winners bracket. Thoughts etc. go here.
Also, I'm not showing a stream on firstrowsports. Anyone know of any streams?
Not sure how this wasn't posted yet - pretty funny though:
So both games were upsets in session 1 of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.
Northeastern knocked off Georgetown and UNC-Charlotte beat Kansas State.
If Michigan wins tonight, they could face VCU which would be the only "watchable" game of the tournament to outsiders.
In other early season tourney news, Nebraska was beaten by UMass 96-90.
