Michigan's second game in both the Preseason NIT and the BTT were duds can we expect anything different in the NCAA?

Those losses were a day after the last game, for what it's worth
true but I am not to hopeful. Impressive wins have been followed not only by losses but poor performance. I am looking for a good outing that would be another springboard for next season. Much as I would like to I do not see the talent or experience to sustain thru Saturday. Would love to be wrong
I think this team has proven they're unpredictable. I have no doubt they can slay the giant if the stars align correctly.
Another factor is that you tend to play a better team the next round. Oklahoma is a very good team and we might well lose no matter how many days off we have.
That is my point, we are going to be playing a better team and our track history suggests Thursday's performance is probably going to be better than what we get Saturday. We would not have beat Oklahoma and unless Blake Griffin gets in foul trouble I am having a hard time figuring out how we are going to beat them Saturday, guess I will leave it up to Belien
But when the year started, if you said to me that we'd have a 10% chance of beating Oklahoma in the second round of the NCAA tournament, I'd have done backflips.
we won our 2nd game vs duke
Our second game in the preseason NIT was a win. It was the fourth game that we lost.
