Smotrycz trails Clemson 16-15.
"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."
Smotrycz trails Clemson 16-15.
They are shooting the lights out.
Smotrycz and Hardaway are going to be the next big studs on the team. Both already play like sophomores. Evan can't miss right now and he's supplementing his hot shooting with solid rebounding (solid by our standards, at least).
I can't believe I'm stuck writing a giant final paper right now instead of watching this game. Keep up the updates, comrades, it makes for great reading when my short attention span for writing runs out & I need a quick break!
I am loving these easy layups.
the future potential of these youg guys. They seem to play as a team. They seem to be energetic on defence. They are going to be really good.
Their D is approaching a purely theoretical level. Come to think of it, so is their offense.
Michigan is 60% on FGs. Huge!
I kind of wish we were in the ACC. They play such a more open brand of basketball.
I'm with you on this one. Watching ACC and Big East basketball is just more enjoyable. It's hard to argue with the Big Ten's overall success, but sometimes it's a grind to watch.
A little bit of sloppy play as the half is coming to a close. Let's hope this isn't a reflection of the rest of the game.
I've always wanted one of those annoying white guys like Duke and Purdue always seem to have. Metrics! We has them!
I like Jon Horford. He's way undersized, but he seems to make a lot of nice hustle plays - and he's not afraid to throw that body around.
I like Horford's potential. Smotrycz, Morgan, Horford is a solid frontcourt for the next four years.
Michigan... end of half.
24 points in the paint!
Nice! Ok, I gotta write like crazy during halftime so I can justify a break to watch the second half!
Great first half boys! Looking damn good out there tonight.
Morris really has taken on a new role this year, he is noticeably more confident with his game. Great first half for this young team.
Morris and Smotrycz 10 and 13 pts. They are both playing very well.
Morris's first-half line is impressive: 10 pts, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals, 1 turnover.
man i cannot get this game to load on espn3...is anyone else having problems.
And that's exactly what happened last game I tried to watch on ESPN3.com. But it seems to have kept working once it did. (not to tempt the evil eye!)
atdhe.net has two streams, I'm watching the first one and it's working just fine. ESPN3 was being a pain so I gave up.
I remember listening to an MGoPodcast with Tim in which he said this team might surprise people because the style of play Beilen prefers didn't mesh with the skills of Manny, especially defensively. After catching this first half, this team looks lightyears better than at any time last year, so maybe there is some truth to the idea this team could compete for an NIT bid.
Everyone needs to take a break from thinking/worrying/ranting about our football coach and enjoy this game
This team is going to be really, really good in 2 years. I mean, Top 10 good. Only guys who graduate after next season are Novak (SAD FACE) and Douglas (not so upset). A 2012-13 starting five of Morris, Hardaway, Metrics, Morgan, and Brundrige(????) plus a couple of other 4-star prospects.
VS fashion for all those wishing to watch Katy Perry perform due to their love for her amazing voice
Yeah, amazing voice... we'll go with that.
There are two things I like about that woman. But I can't put my hands, er... finger, on them, er...it.
thing. I had a new one that fit the criteria, but it doesn't work.
Was it sufficiently awesome? If not, that could be your problem.
with a winged cap, so you be the judge
Best half of basketball by this team all season. They are executing to perfection out there. I was really pleased to see Vogrich take it to the rack strong early in the game.
Even with his slender size Horford seems to be a much better interior defender than both Mclimas and Morgan.
So not one mention of the game by the ESPN halftime crew but they can spend a whole segment breaking down Duke/MSU.....tragic!
About the team so far, I think, is Morris. He looks great, like a different player from last year. Bodes well not only for his future but for coach b's talent development skills. If only a couple ofnthe freshman can make a Morris like improvement by next year we are going to be pretty good.
They just spent an entire segment breaking down the MSU-Duke game and didn't spend one minute discussing the game that people are actually tuned in to watch.
I understand that MSU-Duke is probably the biggest game of the season so far, but is it to much to ask for them to spend two minutes pretending to care about the Michigan-Clemson game?
Let's Go Blue!
Smotrycz needs to take a cue from Stu and clean up a bit. National television...
Let's not give up another 13-0 run to start the half. Not something we want to become a trend.
It's been avoided. This team is fun to watch when they're on.
Huge shot by Smotrycz. (I know that might be silly to say up 10 with 16 to go, but it was.)
No, you're right. We were losing momentum in the toughest arena in the ACC. Huge shot.
Michigan... 15:32 remaining
Dumars, Horford and Hardaway are mentioned after the break...(I know, too easy).
Is anyone else watching this game online and finding the UPS commercial song incredibly annoying? I'm shipping fedEX next time b/c of that commercial.
