MBB vs. Bryant Open Thread
he'll be happier with that three and that outlet.
i stand by my statement earlier this week that i'd rather have morris than lucas.
I'm pretty sure that I've said it a million times, but here it is once more: Darrius Morris is a beast. He's so athletic, he knows what's going on, and now that he can hit the occasional three he's a huge asset to the team in so many ways. Much improved since last year, too. I remember watching last year when he'd have the chance for the open three, think about it, and not take the shot. Now he's got the confidence (and the role now since Manny left) to do just about anything.
havin fun throwin glass houses at there stones bout the NCAA news
I can't think of anything for my girlfriend for Christmas and it's getting late. Any ideas? I mean, I buy from you, buy from me.
For an MSU guy, he's not bad. I actually enjoy his commentary in most games. Pretty good during Pistons games too.
Can't wait for B10 play to start so we stop playing down to these inferior opponents in the early stages of games.
We can go on a run right? I'm with buddy, we play down to the competition too often.
quit playing down to the competition.
Anyone else think he just isn't ready and needs another year of weights and practice
Can we add "Slingshot" or "Rockslinger?" to Darius Morris' nicknames? The way he throws the ball around it's like he has a sling for an arm. It's fun to watch.
some nice plays tonight
I spotted him sitting near the alumni band. Unfortunately my iPhone zoom sucks but hopefully I'm not disappointing anyone.
this may seem dumb, but does anyone know why jordan dumars hasn't played at all this year? I've looked around, but haven't found anything.
He hasn't been cleared to play yet after transferring. He should be eligible to play beginning with Purdue next week.
Did it have anything to do with grades. I remember reading something about waiting on grades on the boards earlier in the week.
From Rothstein's Bryant "Notebook" article at annarbor.com:
Not all of Dumars’ grades were posted by tip-off, so he didn’t even dress for the game.
Dumars is expected to be available for the Big Ten opener against Purdue.
I don't care who the competition was, that was an impressive win. 21 assists and only 3 turnovers is a formula for victory over just about anyone.
Kovacs is so gritty. I feel like I'm in a sandstorm listening to him talk.
I know they were waiting for his grades to get posted
Edit: sorry they beat me to it. I hate being that guy.
d-mo/butterfly/slingshot with 7 assists already haha
Anyone else feel compelled to shout "THREEE POINT-HERRRR" with the PA guy while watching the home games on TV?
damn near killed her.
Are you trying to 1-up all those DP threads?
the score should be. A little run, now get some more stops and extend the lead.
as soon as I post about pulling away they hit some 3's
Christmas presents to be that baby right now
If we get three wins during this next stretch I would become a firm believer. Right now I'm just enjoying the show.
The Purdue game is huge. Penn State should be a W. The rest... yikes.
I'd hope for 2 wins out of those five. The first two games being the most likely. Anything better and you have to start talking tourney.
D-Mo needs to hit the boards and he'll have a legit triple-double chance.
Bryant is shooting what, 80% from the 3pt line right now? That is ridiculous.
from overseas now, since last time the NCAA decided to bone us. Their big is killing it from deep
That name is awesome
D Mo is really close to the UM record for assists in a single game. I believe the record is 14. NCAA record is 22 in a game.
Anything is possible!!
Does any site do live tempo free stats? I'm interested in our eFG% right now. It must be through the roof.
Scratch that, just did the calculations to save effort in searching. 62.5% with 8:49 to go. Yikes.
4 rebounds away from triple double!
Manny looking ever so FRESH on the sideline.
Manny is at the game??
Good of him to show support
His long range shot was on tonight, hopefully in this tough stretch coming up he will carry that over.
Wow d-mo is having one incredeible game right now!
Cant wait to see him mature more
I gotta house for sale! Only one issue.... Its in oHIO.
Why did they keep talking about State during this game??? This is a MICHIGAN game!
competition was weak, but Morris' stat line from this game is sick. 12 assists, no turnovers, no fouls, 6 rebounds, 26 points. Good lord, this guy ate his Wheaties before the season. Keep it up my fine fellow.
Good win, tough schedule coming up. Gonna be fun to watch
I can't believe Bryant is 1-10 with the shooters they've got. The Russian (?) guy in particular had a beautfiul stroke. Fun game to watch.
aren't they all the same? i mean really? what's the difference?
somebody should investigate these matters further. i'll keep watch.
.. is a bit worrisome, but goddam they were on fire from 3 point land. Midway through the 2nd half I believe they were shooting at 71% from behind the arc and never really seemed to cool down. I'm not sure if that's a case of an unusually poor (me hopes) defense or if Bryant was just on fire?
To beat a team shooting that hot by 16 is still pretty impressive.
Bryant was just knocking them down. When you defend well enough inside that the opposing team doesn't try to go in there very much, then it's hard to complain when they manage to hit all their threes. You can't stop BOTH.
At least, I think it was Horford. He was trying to save a rebound or a TO or something, I can't recall exactly, and he ended up leaping clear over the Bryant bench players, with his legs hanging over the back of the seats. All I could think to myself was, "If he comes up with a torn ACL or something from that..."
He was fine, but seriously, there's a point at which a kid has gotta realize, 'I am more valuable to the rest of the season than if I manage to get THIS rebound.'
He also didn't get it. :( The effort was fantastic, but When we're playing all freshmen, we can't afford for the BEST freshmen to get hurt.
... a guy named papa lo on their team, i want him on my team. Who cares if he's good or not, that's an awesome name.
