So what are we hoping for in terms of all-big ten. Morris and Hardaway as 2nd team or do you think one of them will be able to squeek in as first team?

Congrats! After the game I was thinking he might get it but he did only have 10 points on Wednesday but I guess dropping 30 points as a freshman will make up for that. I really think he's the key to us making the Dance.
EDIT: He also got a nod in ESPN's Weekly watch under "More performances that wowed us"
Tim Hardaway Jr., Michigan: The Wolverines are quietly trying to creep onto the bubble, and Hardaway's 30-point performance in an OT win at Iowa on Saturday kept them in the conversation. He scored 22 in the second half and hit two key free throws with 15 seconds left in overtime.
