Our team needs to remember that just yesterday Wichita St almost choked away a 20 point lead to a team way more offensively impaired than Florida is. If Florida gets hot and gets the momentum, they'll be right in this one
Michigan Basketball vs. Florida Game 4 Tournament Open Thread
that they did not have a week to scout us. We lead by one Stauskas.
I can wait.
In this first half it seems that our whole season is culminating in our ability to score and finally D a team up. 20 minutes still left. Need to get THJ going
No whammies. No whammies. No whammies. Please no whammies.
and kstate nearly beat lasalle down by 20 or so
intensity, intensity, intensity!
I almost can't stand this...my heart is in my throat. I sucessfully swayed said cousins with peanut butter pie and the threat of my fists. My wife is not happy with me...neither is their dad. Lets go blue!!!!
Well played sir, well played.
Tell their dad to send them to dance class. It's the friggin tourney.
You did the right thing, and in an appropriate way. Does pie last an hour tho??
We are shooting 51%, FLA is shooting 41%. (it was something like 61% to 21% halfway throught). FG% has started to even out.
BUT, we are winning these stats, and this is much more important:
That is team play and energy right there!
I wonder what Coach Bacari is saying to them right now.
Our resident Syracuse-Michigan poster is going to be unbearable this week.
Didn't he already make a douchey comment about rooting for Syracuse over Michigan?
But the over-under on him getting banned will probably be high.
My father in law is a SU alumnus. I am not going to watch the game at home, since my wife will pull for SU. Its just better that way.
"Run it up Herman, leave no doubts!"
seriously...do it. lets make this a statement. then chant SEC afterwards
If 3 pt% evens out we're going to have to lean even harder on McGary.
So we don't let it happen. Rut them off the line and switch. We played decent perimeter D in the first half. It only evens out if we let it. Simple.
Coming out of the half. Florida knocks down a pair of threes and they are right back in it. We need a couple set plays to score off and settle back in.
Nik will need to be 'not just a shooter' since I expect Florida to not lose him and close out hard in the second half. I hear he is capable of being NJAS.
If we're the aggressor, we may be able to cruise to the finish. If UF comes out hot, it's going to be a looong half
It is going to be a looong half regardless.
they are expecting a run and run when they are expecting a pass...oh wait, I'm getting a few months ahead of myself, here.
Refs have kept themselves out of the story line. Hope that keeps up.
20 minutes to the Final Four. Keep the intensity up. Foot on the gas pedal and don't let up. If this team has learned anything over the last two days, its that no lead is insurmountable for any team to overcome, especially in tournament time.
Is fairly likable
Let's Go Blue!
Keep the pedal to the metal!
Yeah, FLA needed that half as much as Ohio needed it against VCU.
Halftime has the possibility of completely changing who's hot, especially from 3 point.
Recently, Trey has been playing much bigger in the 2nd half, and that makes me feel really optimistic. I think he will be working specifically to keep UM level. This should be exciting.
Defensive energy. No T.O.'s, but push the ball on offense.
"Hold on to the god damn ball"
Making me increasingly nervous
Some ways it's tougher being up big.
Just like the start of the 2nd half versus VCU. Ugh.
little sloppy play. Not the right recipe at the moment.
CATCH THE DAMN BALL BIGS
"Don't play like you lost a 24 point lead. Play like you have a 17 point lead."
Another behind the back pass, this time McGary to Burke! It came up short but still sweet!
Do not let us for a second! Play hard! After forcing a comback against a 15 seed, all I have been hearing is how they are gonna take the B1G out of this race. Kick their asses and show them what this is about! Go Blue!
C'mon, make those turnovers count!
Need some buckets
Mark of the first half.
Goddamnit, stop turning the ball over
We're in trouble.
Be smart with the ball.
I'm going I throw up.
Death to halftime
