Heck of a jump in the bracketology. Went from next four out to clear of Dayton.
Huge opportunity to capitalize against Wisconsin this week.
And ugh, would play ND AGAIN. Don't see that happening.
I've been operating under the fairly safe assumption that Walton would never be an NBA guy. He's really short, a decent defender but not overly quick, and (until recently) hasn't had the offensive output to make it worth it. His best skill is defensive rebounding, which will probably disappear in the pros. The last string of games, though, he's been brilliant--finishing at the rim, slaying at the three point line, and getting pretty damn open for some 12-18 footers.
So two questions: 1) do you think he could actually be a functional NBA player? Is there a role for him? 2) Do you think if he finishes the season this way he has a chance of getting drafted in the second round?
Would have never thought I'd be asking this question even as of a month ago, but he's really flipped a switch IMO. Carrying us on his back.
Tonight's "The Journey" will look at three in-state rivalries, including MSU-UM.
Zack Novak, of Aneurysm of Leadership fame, will be featured. We all love us some Zack Novak. Don't miss it!
Celebrate the win over Indiana by watching more Michigan basketball on Big Ten Network. Wolverines are up 5 a couple minutes into the second half. We'll probably end up stomping the Badgers. It's a good excuse to not get up from your couch for another 40 minutes or so.
Michigan star Katelyn Flaherty already has 25 points.
D Walton is the alpha dog. He's never looked better in his career, and this team hasn't looked better all season.
Bench Irvin. Go with the Walton + Simpson backcourt, with MAAR subbing in.
I'll eat some crow. Beilein has again pulled these guys off the mat. But we're not in the tourney yet
