Damn this time of year is fantastic. I know this is a warm-up for the tourney, but I find myself enjoying these games just as much as MM.
"All the (expletive) that people give Zak ... I hate it. I hate it so much. It's like, man, what else you want from the dude? What else do you want? He's played off back surgery. He's got, like, 1,500 career points. He's made a one-eighty as a player. I remember the days when Zak would shoot a contested 3 over two people rather than pass. He's a whole new guy. I mean, dude, are you kidding me? Get off my guy's back."
Absolutely fantastic theater these 2 days.
My worry pre tournament is my memories of some of the NBA player full UM games tiring later in BTT. Maybe my memory is foggy but we seem to lose our sea legs - understandably - as a jump shooting team playing that 3rd game in a row. I know the sample size is small but I'm curious how many times we've advanced to the 3rd game in a row and how our outside shooting looked those games.
Exaggerating that, we seem to be down to a 7 person rotation at this point and hitting a wall about 5 minutes into the 2nd half tommorow is a big worry. Talk me out of it.
