What other option do we have.
Michigan Basketball vs. Kansas NCAA Tournament Game 3 Open Thread
Maybe the wrong time to play him so much. But Spike has a monster learning curve when he takes over next year.
Shoulda played more earlier in the year.
Burke lifetime in the NCAA tournament:
17-54 shooting (31.4%)
Now they call a foul and it sends Morgan to the line. Hope he hits em both
Dang! Bad time to be in the bonus ... I guess one is ok
Overall disappoint, especially with the 1st half start, team isn't physically ore tally tough
Sorry, but saying this before the games over when we're down 6 means you'zz a bitch.
As good as GRIII is, with the way he disappears and can't play D...is it really a HUGE loss if he goes to the league?
Burke gone. Hardaway stays. GRIII stays after flirting with scouts.
We NEED a few 7 footers. A rim presence.
Sometimes I hate fellow michigan fans. You watch a few basketball games on TV and suddenly some of you think you're basketball experts. No, you don't know more basketball than coach B does. We're just getting outplayed by a superior basketball team... period.
Average commenter is a genius bc they post REBOUND like its just not clarified enough
This is the style Michigan should play when we are matched up against better half court teams.
Whats the score please
Down 11. 3:45 left.
Hardaway going to the line for a one and one...
Edit: No, we're down 11 but Tim made one so we're down 10. Only 10.
Why take out Morgan????
Everything that Michigan had a problem doing this year such as defense, rebounding, and boxing out has all coming back tonight.
we just need like 6 stops and 8 makes in a row...
I think we should take Robinson out ... Get Morgan for D
Well. Mitch has played withey even or better and we're still down 10. Screw the experts.
Totally agree. My biggest issues tonight:
Even adequate performances would have been enough prolly.
Killed us with his defense. Neutralized Burke single handedly
All offseason. Free throw fucking drills
Stop missing the 1 and 1s!!
Why is there a commercial after every fucking whistle!?!?!?
It is not our night. We have to work so hard for every rebound, every loose ball. We're not "getting the bounces" so to speak. Throw in our 46% free throw shooting, and that's a big part of it. Things are coming easy for Kansas, and difficult for Michigan. I'm not sure what the assignable causes are, but that's my observation.
This game is frustrating. Losing when we play below our potential is difficult to take. I'm sorry but Kansas is not better than us we just are playing bad.
This team have up four minutes ago in the game. You look at their mannerisms between plays and they are defeated.
- You allow 20 layups/tips/dunks in a game.
- You're a shooting team and you go 6/13 from the line.
...with a 6-8 guy in your face helps.
This game is playing out about as well as Michigan could hope for. Just losing all the 50-50 plays and can't hit the shots they have made all year.
4:00 to turn it around
It been a great season. We just ran into a better team. No shame in that. Trey has given us everything he has, but unfortunately for us, Tourney's just arent his thing...
This buick encore commercial makes me want to buy a dinosaur.
People are going to look back and think Kansas shot the lights out. No, we just gave them layups and put backs.
But we could be in this thing. That's what is so frustrating.
If we make some free throws, if we play a bigger lineup, we're right there. In fact, I think we're winning.
GRIII is a very good player, but he's just outsized in this game.
A bigger lineup wasn't going to fix anything. It was going to clog the paint for Burke and THjr and pretty much play into what Kansas wants you to do. You're not replacing GR3 with Shaq, you're replacing him with Morgan... and Morgan's not going to be able to keep up with Kansas' 4 or move him out of the paint.
Could you just give Coach B the benefit of the doubt? If he thought that there was anything he could do that would improve our chances of winning, trust me, he'd be doing it. He cares more about that W than you do.
Free throws have been a major problem since mid-February. I don't know what happened.
From the line
well that was a weak press
Can McGary be the best big in the conference next year?
8 missed FTs
45 seconds of game time, commercial. For fucks sake.
Does Mitch have brothers?
Why is McGary the only one that you never have to question his desire.
McGary has outplayed withey, and it's not even close.
Mitch!! Now please make a couple of 3s
Morgan and LeVert for GRIII and Stauskas.
We didn't then, but we have to now...
We get a stop and a 3 and it's a one possession game.
The weak press frustrates me. All it does is take more time off the clock. If you're not going to commit to the press, don't do it, let the defense get set and let Kansas get the ball back. We may need those 4 seconds later.
Man, this is worse than playoff hockey
