Michigan is now ranked 10 at CBS. Ohio has dropped to 8th. Michigan has the most losses of any in the top 10. As I think about it, Michigan can play with almost anyone if Hardaway is on his game. And if Smotrycz is hitting, (along with Stu, Novak, & Burke,) we can give anyone fits. I have to say, I don't know how we'll beat the likes of Michigan State and some of the longer, athletic teams, but given how Beilein has coached the team, we can mask our weaknesses and somehow manage to compete. Considering that we already beat MSU, now Ohio, and played competively with Duke, we're doing very well. This is unbelievable. When we add McGary, Stauskas, and Robinson, we'll be in a better place yet.
Rivals** has added Taco Charlton to our 2013 hoops commitment list. This is probably just a formality since Taco was on the Rivals hoops recruit list. Ace did mention that he had a strong hoops skill set in his official recruiting profile.
**This is non-paywall Rivals content.
Basically highlights the 10 players most likely to move up in the Rivals150. Guess who's #1?
Alright, there are only 4 games left until the B1G tournment. I think Michigan has a great chance to win all of them. The one I am most concerned about is the next game @ Northwestern. They play an odd style and can be tough to beat at home. After that I would say Purdue in AA and then Illinois and PSU should be W's.
Just wondering how everyone else feels about the last stretch of games? Would love to get the B1G title or at least a piece of it.
Going into the half, an under-manned Purdue team leads Michigan St. 38-35. Purdue has been playing very well and gotten MSU and Green into foul trouble so far. Robbie Hummel has been playing great, with about 18 first half points.
If MSU loses, they drop into a first place tie with Michigan and OSU, so this is a huge game for Michigan.
Game is on CBS.
