MBB vs. Towson Open Thread
he says it in the post...
firstrowsports doesn't work in a handful of countries -- including Korea. It used to work but stopped about a month ago. I haven't had any luck using an ip proxy with it either. Has anyone been able to use firstrowsports.com with a proxy?
Edit: Beat by the loading screen....
i think yes
believe he didnt against ferris as a 1 game discipline for missing a meeting or showing up late to something.
I think he was late to the morning walk through...I want to see Mchigan start a game with a higher pace to see if it gets them into a better shooting groove early
Starters according to Mike Rothstein Novak, Burke, Hardaway Jr., Smotrycz, Jordan Morgan
Miss morris, but have to love having a PG that can hit a 3
he can shoot the ball nicely...i like it
The freshman looks good! I'll take a 3-point threat at PG!
"Burke at Work?"
Yeah... kill that with fire...
Better than the Butterfly.
But when a Michigan employee does it, it is somehow just so much worse...
Towson is terrible
I'm sure Towson wouldn't mind a lacrosse game. Defense looks sharp. And let's hope McCormick (sp?) is right about the improved athleticism.
this team is simply not good...I like the movement and I like Michigan playing with a higher pace
This is unacceptable. We should clearly be up 12-0 and have yet to take a charge.
Finally an offensive foul. Now up 17-0. I'd be nice if we were getting some better production from Blake McLimans, though.
I think we all love the PG that can fire the 3. I have high hopes for this Burke kid.
Strong start. 10-0 after the first timeout.
Trey Burke looks awesome...
We're still an outstanding freethrow shooting team.
defense is looking like they're continuing where they left off against ferris state. lets use this game to improve on offensive flow and free throws.
5 fouls on Towson already.
I think Towson should be playing D2 for basketball. My school's team could beat them.
Just have to throw this out there...
I love xbox live so i dont actually have to watch it on my computer.
Can you please explainhow you are doing that for the less technically savvy? I would much prefer watching this on a 50 inch plasma than a 17 inch laptop screen
go into the xbox dashboard and there is a video marketplace.
on there there is a link to watch espn. you probably from there will have to download an update but from there you can stream espn3 through your xbox.
15-0, good guys.
Michigan is on something like a 38-1 run over the last 2 games
Apparently defense transcends sports....who knew?
Michigan 19, Towson 0 wow!
That was a great pass from Douglas. I was almost positive that he was going to shoot that one.
wow. They're bad.
to watch. Wait till the B1G though.
anyone else notice that we didn't play the anthem tonight? what's up with that?
Even though its against townson. If we play defense the way we can, even if we dont hit shots, we will still be in the game.
anyone want to do a pool on what time Towson actually puts a point on the board?
too bad it didn't count
Did someone tell them that there was in fact a basket that they could attempt to utilize?
Worst three seconds call ever. That was horrible.
When do they start the three seconds count? I never understand the 3 seconds call.
3 seconds restarts after shots. He wasn't in the lane that long after the rebound.
Mattison must be coaching the D
FYI - Kansas beat Towson 100-54. We need to do better than that.
But, we're on pace to win about 100-0, so that will probably happen.
On a side note, found this via the U-M basketball twitter feed:
The new Player Development Center practice courts just got their final paint job and should be ready soon! #GoBlue
State of the art
When was the last time you saw a score like this from any team in the NCAA? Ever at Michigan?
like two years in a row.
on the wrong end though.
we gave up a point?!? what bs.
They scored :(
unselfish, up tempo, hard working basketball...I like this team
Quick - who scores more points: Towson tonight or Nebraska on Saturday?
How can it be 21 points in the paint when we have 23 and we have a 3pter.
Two from Burke, one from THJ.
"What is that they are shooting into?"
That is a strange Under Armour commercial
obviously he is not counting on working much at the palace this year
Glenn Burke is our PG.
I didn't know his shot was that smooth. I feel more confident with our PG situation.
Akunne getting a lot of run
Novak's best characteristic is GRIT. End of story.
If Hardaway is gonna hit that step back three, this team is going to be very, very good.
i'm sure we're playing loose against a team that can't seem to score, but the turnovers are a little out of hand.
My Sportring News preview picks Towson last in the Colonial.
As they are most seasons. I'm in the middle of CAA country, and they're a joke. Their arena only has seats around one of the four sides and they're just... awful.
Hey! We have seats around 2 sides of our court!
But the shot selection has become a bit complacent.
That might be the first real mistake I've seen from them tonight.
Burke has a SWEET stroke!
I be like dang, Burke can shoot the rock.
Really liking this Trey Burke kid. Really quick, smart and has good handles. Hopefully we get a chance to see Brundidge out there for extensive minutes
I hate Dook, but it would be nice if Coach K became the winningest coach against Sparty and Izzo.
tied with 3 minutes left
up by 1against High Pt 2 min left.
Where Brundidge is? I was surprised when his name wasn't in the box score, I don't know why he hasn't played yet.
Hopefully we'll see more of him towards the end? Lets hope
wow the maize rage section looks so roomy... i remember having to stand sideways on the bleachers.
You do know we're playing Towson on a Monday, right?
Purdue 67 High Point 65 F
He's not just a 3-point shooter. Nice drive by the freshman PG.
Tim McCormick said tremendous. Takin a page out of Hokes book. Also, nice move by Burke.
given all they hype, i really expected more out of him.
I don't like the fact that we're trading baskets to this team.
I swear the only 3 i can remember stu making is the one agaisnt msu, i feel like the guy misses 99% of his threes its crazy
This team can be dangerous if they shoot better than 25% from behind the arc.
The offense is starting to get ugly for Michigan. Too many missed shots and TOs
We'll be great next year with McGary cleaning up those misses.
no seniors on this Michigan team commentator fail
Earlier also said Dawson of MSU is a transfer from Valpo. What? Fail.
If you listened the next minute they said that it was actually Bradon Wood who was the transfer from Valpo.
I have not seen any of the game, just watched the score on the bottom line in horror as Towson has pushed M through halftime to the tune of 16-37. For those that are either at the game or found some obscure electronic streaming device to watch the game, what is the deal? Our we getting any production inside, at all? What is the shape of the offense, is it running "through" THJ with isos from the wing? Is there any inside-outside look with Morgan. Typically, these kind of teams are layup lines, from ranked and unranked teams alike. I know it is early, and typically I don't really pay any attention to BB until around Thanksgiving. But are there alarm bells going off right now, and if so, how loud are they?
See, I don't even follow basketball but I presume that it has scoring typical of hockey, so that was some HORRIBLE goal protection by UM. Bench Hardaway!
No. He goes by Tre if I'm not mistaken. I'm guessing it's because he's Glenn Robinson III.
Never thought of doing that (I'm a third as well). Call me TreH from now on!
Hes the third.
wheres Carlton and Horford and Akunne Vogrich and Mclimans
It is so cool to be able to watch Michigan Basketball games online. Yay technology!
I know we're up by 30, but we still weren't looking hot around 10 minutes to go in the 2nd. Nwankwo is a beast. Boy howdy I am excited for this season! (And I hear we got this tall dude for next year, too.)
Michigan has really let Towson take it to them. Come on wolverines let's win by 30.
really let off the gas pedal in the first half oh well beat Western Illinois
The offense isnt clicking right now. I suppose its from being up so many points but they gotta start looking for better shots.
Brundidge looks lost out there. He seems to be just standing around a lot. Must be a freshman.
Detroit up 39-33 at Notre Dame.
Detroit-Mercy is going to be good this year with all 5 starters back.
Couldve played much better and shouldve won by more but a win is a win and a lot of guys got to play so thats always a good thing.
The gonzaga game is making me sad about how small the maize rage is, it needs to be at least twice as big to be a legit student section.
