The road to the Tip off NIT Championship begins in Crisler tonight with Michigan taking on IUPUI at 9PM(ESPNU).
The Cliffs notes version: If Michigan can hold serve on their home court, they move on to Madison Square Garden to play Pittsburgh, and possibly Virginia or Kansas state in the championship. But lets not put the cart before the horse. Tonight Michigan takes on IUPUI. (Dylan's preview lives here..http://www.umhoops.com/2012/11/12/game-2-iupui-at-michigan-preview/. ) Turns out IUPUI is coached by
No, NTTodd Howard either...
Dylan sums up the difficulties Mr. Howard might face this year(you know, besides the dental work and laser hair removal)
"Things won’t get any easier for Howard in his second season as he loses his top scorer (Young), rebounder (Christian Siakam) and point guard (Stephen Thomas) from a year ago. "
After Michigan takes IUPUI behind the woodshed, it will be either Cleveland State or Bowling Green for the chance to go to NYC...
I dont know that New York City is ready for GRIII Mitch McGary et al... They might have just a little bit of fun.
IUPUI was predicted to finish 5th in the Summit League and won their first game of the year beating Utah Valley 67-54 on Friday night. I think we win 94-58. What say you mgoblog?
THJ had an awesome night. The McGary steal, pass to Trey, Trey alley oop to THJ was a fantastic play. This team is exciting.
Edit: also a great recap from UMHoops here
UCLA freshman Shabazz Muhammad, the #1 basketball recruit in the country, was just ruled ineligible by the NCAA.
UCLA announces Shabazz Muhammad is in eligible. No time frame listed. UCLA believes it unjust and will fight it. Not good for Bruins.
