I predict a 12-6 conference record (losses - @Wisc, @MSU, @Ind, @ Iowa, @Ohio, MSU)
I hate even thinking MSU could sweep, but they're a lot more physical than us and not a team we match up with well. That'll probably result in about a 6 seed in the tourney.
I hope I'm wrong and Michigan wins out.
All around terrible game by the zebras. They disrupted the tempo of the game and they almost fouled out our entire frontcourt. Unbelievable
Say what you want about Dave Brandon, but he would never rename Michigan Stadium "Al Glick Michigan Stadium."

Key Bench Players
Basically none, very starter oriented. BUT:
When I first saw Stanford on the schedule, I assumed this was going to be an easy win and look decent as far as quality wins go because they are in a power conference. Well, I was only half right. These teams numbers are very similar and Stanford has that quality win that Michigan is lacking. One thing that will really pop out to you is that their starting five is all upperclassmen. There is no doubt we are the more talented team, but they have the experience on their side.
Michigan had a much needed week off to prepare for this game and get healthy. Stanford is coming off a huge road win for them, but won't have as many days to prepare for Michigan.
Michigan 72 - Stanford 64
