Illinois beats Indiana 64-54. (suck it, Crean)
BTT Opponent: Illinois
Wooo! Thank god they beat UM's toughest opponent in the tourney. Feel much better about UM's chances of winning now.
He's got the poo face.
Haaaaaaa!!! Everyone at this Chipotle is wondering why i just laughed so hard.
There is an open thread for this.
Where? Oh, there. Okay.
Maybe Kenpom will have Michigan favored by more than 1 point this time.
I'm sure he will since we were on the road last time, as opposed to neutral court now. Oh and that previous game.
I think he said if Illinois beat Indiana Michigan was a 73% favorite to win the tournament. I think it will be a six or seven point line.
Ilinois just feels like a much better matchup.
I'm relieved. Indiana seems to always play us extremely tough. Not that it will be easy beating illinois, I just would much prefer playing illinois over indiana.
Sigh of relief over here
This is good.
For once the Big Ten did it right. The clean looking court they designed for the BTT is much easier on the eyes than almost every other conference's tourney floor.
Last time, UM played a near perfect game and Illinois not so much. But, it is still a better match up than IU.
However, wouldn't it have been sweet to beat IU in back to back games?
