No way that was a foul..
MBB vs. Penn State thread
He pushed him in the hip while he was in the air. Easy call.
JUST LET THEM HAVE THE LAYUP... WHY YOU FOUL?
NOT A FOUL
Well, there's the dumbest foul of the year.
Think this is just a classic "we just went through a hellish gauntlet of games and psu is supposedly terrible so we'll sleep to a close victory" type games. I admit that size is killing us and will potentially be an early tourney loss issue (despite the tourney being a guard-fest) but we did just finish a stretch of conference games unlike any I've ever seen. Freshman need to get their strength and confidence back, too. Silver lining? The B10 is so good this year that the first couple rounds of the tourney, IF READY, should feel easy to this team regardless of seed.
That should be nominated for most perplexing call of the year.
nice pass there nik
are we forcing passes to horford in the post?
Because he was pretty poor on help defense.
Hopefully Morgan will hold off on that 4th foul so he can get some minutes.
So Penn St. is in foul trouble and short handed? Then drive the fucking ball.
I don't know what happened to Horford there. He was looking all over for his guy who was right in front of him.
I don't know if anyone in the NCAA shoots worse than 48% from layup, but okay.
If you read the boards here, you'd think we do.
Shit there goes my prediction of only 4 PSU points in the 2nd half.
Tom Hamilton is a brutal announcer.
was filmed in my hometown at my public park, just noticed that. Woah.
I've been wondering. The downtown Detroit one with the Fort St sign is obvious enough, but I don't know where that park is.
They just look lazy today for the most part. All of these fouls and several of them have been really unnecessary. It's tough to watch this team get progressively worse over the last few weeks.
I think learners and leaders should be the new division names.
Good to see Stauskas and GRIII more involved, now if Mitch McGary can get going to his potential too, I'll be really happy.
It must be really frustrating trying to figure out what they'll call as a charge.
Yea. It has to be. The thread last week, I think, was a good discussion on the "Charge" call now-a-days. I personally think it's ruined the game in ways. But to be out there playing and figuring out how a referee will call a certain "play" and to have it vary in consitency, has to be a very underestimated part of the game.
Edit: Especially for a freshman. GRIII picks up a charge call before what would have been a good drive and dish made three by Vogrich.
To everyone who was talking mad shit about Stauskas earlier: 13 pts, 50% fg rate, 4 assists, and 1 rebound. Granted his defense hasn't been great, he is a big part of our narrow lead.
+1 (literally) for taking the step back on that shot.
Man where is Hardaway today?
Maybe if you didn't turn the game off you'd know this.
Stauskas with a couple nice looks on that possession.
There we go Glen!
Who is this #1 guy?!
is waking up. keep it up dude.
Seriously someone predicted 3 alley oop dunks for Glenn.
Vogrich comes in and PSU puts up a 3.....
GR3 needed this. He's been strong today. It's against a weak opponent but hopefully it gets him back on track.
McGary is not having a game he's going to want to remember
Man, does he dunk angry
If anyone is looking for a laugh: OSU is losing to Wisky 22-6.
no doubt about it. i guarantee the alley oop to him was a point of emphasis in practice this week.
I like this version of Michigan basketball better,
Love it when we get a nice oop in transition like that.
For his defense
I want to tell myself the only reason GR3 is having this game is because we are playing psu, I sure hope not...
