I didn't see any personal foul! WTF?
# 3 Michigan vs. West Virginia mens basketball open thread
so what was that foul and why do these refs hate stauskas? Also officially worried about our defense, this is a bad offensive team and while they are hitting some tough shots they also have a lot of open looks.
and WTF are they calling after that shot? Thanks for explaining espn, not really explaining in other words
What did he get the tech for? Taunting?
He yelled "bitch" to their bench. Silly Nik.
Edit: I work in sports media and we get the live feed of the game. They showed it during the commerical break. He definitely turned and yelled what looked like "bitch" to someone on their bench. Not necessary.
Heaven forbid a college kid show some emotion while playing basketball. Let's all hope no one has fun or gets excited, guys. That just wouldn't do at all.
These refs are racist!
/s. just in case
You can take the kid out of Canada but can't take the Canada (gritty kill or be killed swagger) out of the kid.
burke is awesome to watch.
did huggins just shove a guy? lol
Couldn't tell tho
Yes, he did. Not sure it was malicious but he definitely pushed the sub into the game
Somebody get him a cold beverage
He's had some problems with cold beverages in the past.
Not sure why he's getting upset they called it now.
nice way to finish the half
Dang. Cannot wait to see Burke in the league next year.
why the hurry man? Can we just enjoy this, I don't want to think about him being gone, although he prolly will, dammit, he is so fun to watch
Haha, yeah, I guess I can wait, just loving enjoying him playing like a lottery pick right now. Unbelievable moves.
Um, I could wait.
Like 2 more years.
Burke, my goodness man.
Pretty sure I said something along the lines of Burke getting to the basket,,,,,,
fucking stud!!!! Trey is, and he was a 3 star coming out of HS? Really?
the occasional tech. Got some swag. All good teams do. Just don't do it when the game is on the line.
Consider it proved.....WOW!
Trey Burke is dirty.
you knew that was going in when he wanted to go one-on-one for the final shot...
I cannot believe how much better Burke has gotten from last year when he was already awesome. Look at his freshman to sophomore year to Hardaways. He's the man.
Yep, he's a stud. And every time an opponent goes on a run against us, Burke always gets us a much needed basket.
His game is really starting to look a lot like Derrick Roses. The penetration and body control while drawing contact is impressive.
he does have that wicked body changing direction ability that Rose displays
Being a Bulls fan and watching Derricks game grow and progress over the years it's very similar to watching Burkes game grow. Albeit Trey has a ways to go to be on Derricks level, the similarities are there.
Very true. The thing that impresses me most is his mid range ad outside jumper. He was so erratic last year and very consistent this year.
That's what makes Derrick so deadly, that little floater he does is unstoppable and he worked on his outside shot. Trey seems to be working on those same things with great success.
That #3 is prettaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay preeeeettttaaaaaaaayyy preeeeetttaaaaaaaaaaay pretty goodt
17, 6, 3stl. IN A HALF
Burke is awesome to watch.
Still, I'd love to see les sloppy play and not rely totally on him. Tim can get to the hoop when he wants.
Ps WV is shooting a really high percentage right now.
We've been very blessed with PGs the past two; even as both will have left early for the league - it shows the difference a stud PG can make for the entire team. Very happy to see it. Question is - who is next in line. And I don't mean Spike.
Answer: Derrick Walton
a strong second half... don't let them back in the game
Question for halftime: If we pull it out tonight and #5 Florida beats #8 Arizona, is there any chance they jump us?
I'd be a little surprised, but not shocked. That'd be a good win, and we haven't beaten any top 10 teams yet.
Haha touche. To be honest I really don't care. Just win your games.
They've played a tougher schedule.
