I'm still not sure why we even keep attempting bunnies. We've been blocked more than we've made them.
Michigan Basketball vs. Kansas NCAA Tournament Game 3 Open Thread
I agree with whoever suggested the 1-3-1. Really need to make them hit jump shots.
Michigan shooting 35% to Kansas' 73%. I'd think those numbers will change. Also agree with some zone, make them hit jumpshots. Also, I wish we could get a shot off without it being blocked :(
Contesting KU's layups would be a good start.
I guess this is what happens when you pit talented, yet somewhat raw and smaller freshmen against equally talented, experienced, and much taller seniors.
I'm glad to see Morgan in. He is an upgrade on D and we need some of that now. As recently as the Indiana game he was really effective on Zeller relative to the other two.
Let's get a good possession right here.
Rock Chalk Nutshot
LeVert just needs to draw contact there.
All of the blocks...
This is tough to watch.
#3 on Johnson...
Johnson, third foul. LOL
lol see you in the second half Elijah Johnson
McGary with a nice mid-range jumper.
HAH...refs are gonna call fouls on Johnson every time he's in!
that was an ugly shot by Mitch but it went in and that's all that matters
ok so they are going to hit jumpers too...that's ok stick with the 1-3-1 for now.
Nice call by a poster earlier in the thread...
But KU gets the 3...bad call, lol.
I'd go 2-3 over the 1-3-1.
Oh oh do not need to see McLemore getting hot from outside, they're already pretty warm on the inside
We got a freaking BLOCK!
Wow, move your body towards the ball...
GRIII doing nothing.
Hardaway's head is not in the game
He is so damn frustrating.
Dirty fuck. Karma indeed.
But they're keeping him on a very short leash. I like it.
I don't get it GR3 almost looks disinterested sometimes in the way he moves.
Couldn't have said it better. You're playing to survive and advance and what do you do? Hold out your hand to try to catch a pass?
That's why people think he's ready for the NBA. He already plays with an NBA level of disinterest.
I enjoy this.
I just want to shake him and say get into it.
That's one travel call out of ten.
travels with the ball everytime he makes a move.
we need to get going soon too
Trey scoreless? Not in the second half boys. Keep the faith.
Like we don't give 2 shits about this right now.
No. That statement is ridiculous.
Some hard fouls on the inside. At least make them hurt when they drive to the basket.
Why even have TO. With all of these TV timeouts. No one can ever get into a game.......
Yeah, this team doesn't practice the 1-3-1 much I'd suppose. Looked terribly executed from how I remember a few years ago. Michigan needs to use its athletic strength, get out and run.
With GRIII is it a confidence issue? He's athletic has hell. He can keep pace physically when he shows a lot of effort. But not seeing that so far.
Letting Bacari do the ridiculous preface stuff. The stuff about caging a jay hawk before the game is kind of classless and not so motivating.
This is the kind of game that he has to take over.
He's going against their #2 PG. We're playing a good defensive team. We need to run offense and he has to play like an MVP.
I know certain guys on this board are untouchable (Denard, Trey, etc.), but right now is where the nation's most outstanding player has to play like it. If he doesn't, I have my doubts. There really aren't any excuses.
Take advantage of going against their #2. Counter their advantage inside. Take this game over. Be a leader.
Even if it's not scoring, get your team in an offense and getting good looks. Breakdown the defense.
Burke has a goose egg right now. We've got to get him going.
Burke is terrible so far. Looks like he doesnt belong on the floor
Outside shots unclog the middle.
...he's arrived. You can see it in his eyes. He's focused now.
Jesus, they are just hitting everything.
Come on Trey...wake up!
Having Tim bring the ball up helped get Burke going against VCU IIRC. Maybe we should try that.
