at least it's not just us?
With 1:46 left in the game, Butler is up 71 to 68 on IU. Butler has played unbelieveable in the second half, but Andrew Smith just fouled out after abusing Zeller all game.
EDIT#1. Game on CBS. IU down 2 with 1:14 left
Butler wins 88 to 86 in OT
Brad Stevens is a hell of a coach!
Well Butler is currently up 7 on Indiana with 2:03 remaining. Could be an upset in the making.
Looks like rebounding might be a little easier tonight, as WVU's Aaric Murray hasn't made the trip with their team. Might also make a difference in terms of foul trouble and fatigue.
As it's been a slow Friday, and with the wait until 8PM Saturday for some UM Hoops, I thought I'd try to start a discussion on this year's bball team, specifically the talent coming off the bench.
In one of the earlier games this year, there was a point in the game when four bench players where in the game. I was struck by how talented and deep this year's team was, and it got me thinking about how these bench players would match up against some of the starters from Michigan teams during the Elerbe and Amaker years (and even Beilein's first team). Granted this year's bench isn't as strong now that Stauskas in in the starting line-up, but LeVerts emergance has mitigated that some.
So here's the question, how do you think McGary, Horford, Spike, LeVert, Vogrich(formerly Stauskas), etc. would fair against some of the UM teams of the past 15 years?
I realize its very early for these...but it's pretty interesting stuff!
GRIII going in the 1st round - #11
Burke going in the 1st round - # 20
Hardaway Jr. going at the top of the 2nd round - #32
When is the last time, even in projections like this, michigan had 3 essentially top 30 draft picks in basketball?
Other Big 10 players...
Zeller (Indiana) #1
Rodney Williams (Minnesota) #28
Mbakwe (Minnesota) #33
Oladipo (Indiana) #37
Paul (Illinois) #39
As you all know UM Basketball is head to NYC for the second time in this early season to take on Beilein's former team in WVU.
For as good as our basketball team is this season (and it being my first time NYC) I was wondering who's going to NYC this weekend?
What are your plans for the weekend in NYC?
