Michigan in control early against SVSU...Nine of 10 players who have gotten playing time have scored. I know expectations are low, but I believe Beilein will have this team steadily improving throughout the year. Looking forward to watching metrics and little crossover progress as the season wears on.
Sounds like a pretty erratic half of basketball
Requires payment - otherwise, it will be replayed on BTN sometime Sunday. I think I heard 10 AM. Not confirmed
especially their first pre-season game. I'm really hoping this team is going to learn quickly and be tough following Novak's lead. They're gonna get beat bad by some good teams, but I have a feeling they're going to end up playing like a real Beilein team.
This is now a roster completely full of Beilein players. Should be interesting to see how the offense works without Manny and Deshawn.
MSU lost to GVSU. Should MSU have shut down the program?
with 8:47 to play
At least our 3-point shooting has improved: 15% this game!
+1 to you but:
If our 3 point shooting was taught by GERG, wouldn't we score everytime??? :) I don't think he could prevent anything from scoring...
3-21 from 3 pt land with less than 2 minutes to go. Imagine what it's going to look like when a Big Ten team is playing defense.
Closer than I would have liked. Not a great start. 3-21 from behind the arc w/ 58 seconds to go. Nice to see 8 points and 14 boards from Morgan. Smotrycz and Hardaway combined to go 2-13 from three. Hopefully that will improve.
MSU beats SVSU by 44.
UM beats SVSU by 9.
That is very representative of the upcoming season.
Poor shooting, but a few highlights include:
* Morgan hitting the boards - rebounding was non-existant last year. Also, Metrics filling the stat sheet in his first game in a Michigan uniform.
I think this team will shoot the ball well- good to get the exhibition in and out of the way
This is like deja vu. We spent 20+ games expecting the three point shooting to improve; alas, it never did. If it's similar this year you've got to wonder what's going on, that is a staple of Beilein's team.
Not sure why you were negged for this. I totally agree...Except, I was already wondering what was going on!
first game shooting jitters...will get better
I celebrate any and all forms of win from Michigan teams...
Looking forward to seeing this team for the first time
Just caught the stats breakdown on mgoblue. Looks like the shooters couldn't get into a rhythm, but Morgan nearly had a double-double and Morris got to the line a lot. I like what Hardaway Jr brings to the table, but it looks like he struggled a bit today with his shot. Still, a win is a win, and I'm excited that bball is back on the menu.
I think we will look just awful at times, but I also expect to see improvement over the course of the season. It will be hard to see because the games will get tougher as the season progresses, but I expect to see it if looking closely enough.
