I wish Iowa would've beaten Nebraska yesterday so they'd be in the tournament.
MBB Open Thread vs Illinois
it's over, but let's not quit on defense.
Is Levert getting these min over Stauskas for his defense?
He has just sucked the life out of Paul this half.
He played a great half, made 3s which stauskas wasn't. Deserved those minutes.
Yeah. He is clearly a better on ball defender right now.
So do we root for Ohio to beat Sparty? I'm thinking its a must.
Why are we risking our best players being out there?
Huge gut check win! Can't wait for Staee with Jordan Morgan. Whole different game.
Wow tim gets hit in the face and they call travel?
Right result, but why oh why can't we have better starts?
First good half of basketball since at least the tOSU game.
Good riddance. Fuck Illinois and their jackass fans.
Now we have to root for the Buckeyes, unfortunately.
Burke's stat lines are ridiculous.
I think it's time for Levert to start taking more of Stauskas' minutes.
Not the best start, but what's more important is how they finish. And they finished today against a quality team.
Keep the momentum going. We all know PSU won't be a pushover, and then Sparty's on the docket next Sunday.
So Morgan is kind of important after all
Also, this is probably a quality team that we beat by 13.
Might be move of the year. He is really improving at a nice clip. Length plus ability to move his feet make him an imposing defender.
Slow start, but we looked like the Michigan team I know and love by the end of the game. Morgan is a game-changer, IMO.
Michigan was +18 with him on the floor. Such a huge impact player on this team. If not for that stupid Wisconsin buzzer beater (do we have to endure buzzer beaters every game now it seems?) Michigan would be in prime position to run at the B1G title.
Still, there are not many teams that will match up to Michigan in the NCAA prior to the sweet 16 and likely not until the Elite 8.
