I made a little hype video, hopefully this can help you guys pass the time until tip - off. Happy Easter, and go blue!
As always, the game will get its own thread this afternoon, as will the other game. But for those that are excited on this Easter Sunday...here's a thread for us to discuss today's games.

Deep and rugged with good to very good teams it might be, it's nowhere near nationally dominant.
It's been proven once again. This time with an exclamation point because this was the year when the hype was the biggest.
A miracle effort Friday by the likely national player of the year is the only thing currently preventing a total skunking in next week's Final 4. Scorecard: 4 teams in the sweet 16 who all played semi-home games in the early rounds and when the games went truly neutral and competition stiffened, they couldn't produce.
Syracuse absolutely embarrasses the league champion. Then the Big East plants 3 in the elite 8. After Louisville clobbers Duke tonight, the eye test wins again. When you watch Big East top teams play: bigger better athletes, deeper with those athletes, and with elite coaching.
I am the biggest Big Ten fan ever, but let's be real. It's more or less a legend (or leader) in it's own fantasy land. Year in, year out.
|True Shooting %||57.3%||57.6%|
I don't have a lot to say here except to note how RIDICULOUSLY identical both teams are in statistical profile. Rebounding and FT% are EXACT, 3P% is just one tenth off, and Steals, FT% and Assist rate are all razor thin.
I'd like to THINK that a team putting up identical numbers to M in the SEC should be highly advantageous for Michigan. I mean, by and large, they even play our game.
POSS - 64.7 / 62.7
FGA/Game - 58.2 / 54.3
3PA/Game - 19.7 / 21.8
OFF REB/Game - 10.7 / 10.7
It's unreal! It's a freakin' Mortal Kombat Mirror Match!
We will not be beaten at our own game.
