I was impressed by how physical Michigan was in the Minny game coming right out of the block. It seemed that we were slow to realize at Ohio that it was a"no blood, no foul " game. Having played refereed league basketball for over 30 years, I feel that it is one of those things you have to look for in the first few minutes on the floor. What are the refs going to call today? You can adjust to anything but total inconsistency but it is critcial to make an assessment early in the game and push the limits as they let you. What do those who coach or play the game or ref out there in Mgoblogland think?
“On the offense last year, they had great spacing. That’s what I remember. Great spacing, great shooters, like Nik Stauskas, who’s not there right now. But they always have someone to fill the roles. They have a cutting offense, kind of hard to guard.”
