BBall vs svsu
Michigan wins it
They look better than I thought they would. I said this team would be better because they'll play as a 5 man team, not a 2 man (Harris and Sims) team.
didn't msu beat those guys by 40?
And MSU is the #2 ranked team in the country.
i don't believe in the transative property when it comes to sports, but if msu is 30 pts better than us (even if they are #2), we are not good.
look at how small svs is. no big 10 team is close to being that small, except UM. our only chance is to hit 3s and get steals using the 1-3-1. and UM shot 3-21 from 3 pt land this game. it's only one game, but they still haven't proven they can shoot.
they need to shoot 35-40% from 3 pt land to be competitive in the big 10. i don't see that happening with all the youth this year.
5 big 10 wins this year is my hope. i will be surprised and happy if they can win more than that.
They look pretty solid through like, five minutes of play...but yeah, I accidentally looked at the mgofeed. That is not quite as good as I was expecting.
Is definitely not an accurate sample size. They looked mighty fine taking that 20-5 lead, but they did manage to pull out the 'W' (even though it was an exhibition).
I still think they're going to be good -- not great by any means, but good this year, and likely surprise a couple teams who underestimate them. If our 3-point shots are falling, then we're golden. It appeared that beyond the arc shots weren't so hot in the exhibition so hopefully things pick up.
I am a bit surprised with the size of the crowd.
There are 4 very gritty players on the floor right now. When was the last time that happened for Michigan?
want to catch this later - assume BTN will be replaying it
