Well that was a quick change.
MBB: UM vs. Penn State Open Thread.
Trey Burke Y U NO have respect for PSU ankles?
Just logged on to say WOW Trey Burke that was a pretty sick move! Also shows the unselfishness letting Hardaway get the jam!
I'm not sure I like Burke giving up that dunk to Timmay... doesn't he know he needs the points for player of the year?
Why cant we start the game like this?
I blame Beilein. He's such a kind, thoughtful guy with the utmost respect for the kids on the opposing team, he wants to at least give them a half of competitive basketball.
Hey yo, glad to see we finally woke the frack up!
TREY BURKE IS A BAD, BAD MAN
Blow it open, boys.
Refs bail PSU player out.
da fuq. Was that really a foul?
That dunk would have counted.
we don't get fouls called for us and get ticky tacky fouls called against us, constantly
I thought the announcer said Burke's vertical jump was 4 inches, not that he improved it 4 inches, hahaha.
I like that spurt, but man it's been a while since we saw a full 40 minutes of annihilation. Every game's been a grind since early January.
Double team doesn't seem to be doing much but giving them open 3s.
At this point, why don't we just stop doing it? Why can't we let them just take a contested lay-up as opposed to the open 3s?
That is such bad defensive rotation. Damn it.
i hate it when the other team hits 3 pointers
byproduct of getting wide open looks,that's on us
STOP DOUBLE TEAMING THE BALL HANDLER. IT DOESNT WORK. EVER.
They're not doing it correctly. That's the problem.
(FTR: Since someone has a personal vendetta against me or something, I didn't neg you.).
I know, and until McGary learns to do it, he shouldn't be hedging. It's killing us.
Agreed. I think I remember in the IU game us going to zone when McGary came in.
I would assume the game plan for now is to keep trying to get McGary better - trial by fire. However, come MSU and IU, I wouldn't be surprised to see them abandon it for a 2-3 when MM comes in.
I hope he can get better though, because going to a zone against those teams is a gamble.
"What does Michigan need to do to get to that 1 line"
Probably be up by more than 6 at 8-18 (0-14) Penn State. It's a start.
Can't seem to deliver the knockout blow. Letting them right back into the game.
McGary is hedging too late which is causing the on-ball defender to have to chase longer, leading to more help and late rotations.
If he gets out a half second earlier, I think many of our problems are solved.
Both are chasing the ball to the other side of the court. This is the worse I've seen them execute the hedge
"Michigan, Indiana! What do they need to get that 1 line??!?!?!??"
Argle bargle. Sad thing is that I fully expect PSU to cut it to 4 off this timeout
Terrible this half. Bad angles and late.
McGary just can't hedge the damn ball. Ugh
Agree Gonzaga would have a ton more losses of they were in the Big ten.
oh so THAT'S what it looks like when our 3's go in
Big shots right there!
God, McGary is just too slow right now.
Horford looked much better on that hedge. I'll live with them taking contested long twos.
Definitely a foul on Stauskas and/or Horford there, but ah well.
He's crying blood
Penn State just pulled a Michigan. Leaving a guy open for the 3. But I'll take it.
HEY LETS REVIEW EVERY FUCKING ELBOW
No kidding. This is a joke
It's nitpicking, but Horford should dunk that. Don't throw it up and leave it to chance.
I see too many misses or blocks when they could just go strong and dunk it.
That actually looks like an offensive foul on the guy who is bleeding...
Edit: On replay, meh. It's marginal. A blocking foul at worst.
Played in tens of thousands of games.
I call bullshit.
Shhhh, don't give away the practice of "blading" in pro wrestling!
Wow it wasnt a flagrant? No way, never wouldve guessed!
reponding well to being benched vs Illinois for most of 2nd half,playing well tonite
