One Frame At A Time: Minnesota
Glenn Robinson III, quite casually, threw down a 360 dunk against Minnesota. I have no memory of a Michigan player ever doing the same, let alone with such ease.

Caris LeVert's reaction to Stauskas's dunk is wonderful:
The Barn's raised court lends itself quite well to bench reaction shots, as does Mitch McGary's entire existence:
Trevor Mbakwe, not particuarly pleased with the call on his fourth foul:

Box out, man.
