Michigan takes on Iowa St, which features B1G transfers Royce White, Korie Lucious, Chris Allen and Chris Babb, along with Detroit natives Will Clyburn and Percy Gibson. Starts at noon on BTN. Should be a great game. Go Blue!
Michigan BBall vs B1G Transfer U (Iowa St) Game Thread
How can I stream the game off my iPhone, which radio app works ?
believe you can still get it for the iphone. WOOD radio out of Grand Rapids
Go Blue! I've got faith in Beilein to have these guys ready to go after that debacle on Tuesday
anybody have a link?
Currently seeing if First Row Sports will stream the game. Will post as soon as the stream becomes available.
thats where Im at but its not up
Anyone else notice that, when showing the pictures of the Michigan starting lineup, the picture of Tim Hardaway Jr wasn't Timmy? It wasn't even a Michigan player!! Some guy wearing a green jersey...
Iowa State wins the jump
An energetic Morgan = win.
Morgan getting it going early
The insider simulation on the came is a little strange. Max Biefeldt really??
Playing trhe 'Clones brings to mind one of the stranger episodes in Michigan history, when Johnny Orr left AA for Ames.
Burkes got to keep penetrating to open people up. As i say that, he nails a 3
Burke hits 2 straight 3's, Good guys lead 12-10
3 straight 3s
We may want to try a zone, they are getting a ton of wide open threes
Typically, zones are to prevent penetrations, so theoretically, they'd be getting more open 3s if we went zone. But I agree going 1-3-1 for a possession or two to disrupt them a bit
Horford needs to work on his hands
Giving up way too much on the offensive glass.
both teams playing little to no defense, but I like seeing Vogrich and Smotryz getting rebounds
I think that is the first bank shot in ten years that the announcers didn't yell "OFF THE BANK" or "WOW HE BANKED IT"
After some bricks Smot has a nice play, we desperately need him to do that more often
I would like to see us go inside on this team a little bit more
Not sure why Morgan has been on the bench for the last 8 min after a hot start.
I wish we could play some inside. Jacking up too many threes! Too bad Mitch can't play this year
I feel like we can beat any perimeter oriented team, but will get beat by a strong post presence, McGary will surely help us out, but we need to fix those problems this year
how well we handled the Plumlee's at Duke though, but seemed so incapable of gaurding one VA big
with Coach B's substitutions and line up combos?
28-23 M on the Mclimans bucket
Akunne is 3/3 behind the arc this year. Just sayin
Haha no way!
Damn we wasted McLimans one three for the year against iowa State
He got one against Virginia too...
He actually is a perimeter shooter.
17 3-point shots already in the first half. It's kind of rediculous IMO. I would love to see this team try to get to the basket a lot more. Also, Jordan Morgan has 0 rebounds and he is our big man. UGH.
Tough for a big man to get the long remounds you get when you're jacking threes.
If McLimas keeps dropping three balls he is going to be a fan favorite soon.
How did he hit that? did he absorb vogrichs 3 point shooting ability?
Burke has played quite well in this first half.
Trey is making great passes. I just wish our bigs could catch
Burke would have a double double if our guys could hang on to the ball
Royce White is the best big man M has faced this season. He will play in the NBA if he desires it.
I would have to say Iowa State is as talented if not more talented than M.
Never thought I'd see the day where Vogrich is an asset even when he isn't making his threes. Great job on Vogrich and the coaches part.
Fantastic to see Mclimans make some plays. Way to go big fella
Iowa State has some talent, but I don't think it matches Michigan. The score is showing that now, but you could tell even earlier in the game - we just needed our shots to drop.
IDK, it is probably closer than you think
Rival rankings coming out of HS
Royce White 5*
Anthony Booker 4*
Chris Allen 4*
Korie Lucious 4*
Throw in a bunch of 3* and this is a pretty talented bunch, just not a team yet.
I gotta agree with Kelser, they need Royce White to score and somebody else to be the point guard
If we can get this kind of production from Morgan consistently going into Big Ten play we'll be in real nice shape.
Man I guess we are going to have to hear that Novak is a 3 time captain every game
Counted about 4-5 shots by THjr that should have gone in. Metric is having a good outing today. MUCH better than this effort in the va game. Hitting the board also...
Give Morgan another year and he will be lethal on that 12-15 foot pick and pop play. Going to be fun watching McGary and Morgan play the high low game.
is missing all of dmo's dimes
Yes Morgan does miss DMo, but it will be less and less as the season progresses and this team learns to play together. Most of the time Morgan's biggest nemesis is Morgan. He needs to learn to not make the silly fouls which result in extended time on the bench with foul trouble.
Does anyone else think that Novak is the next Brian Scalabrine in the NBA? I just came up with this thought, and while I have little doubt that Novak won't be able to contribute to most teams, a little part of me thinks he'll go undrafted, work out with a team, and be like their 11th or 12th man who gets minutes in blowouts.
As a fan of Scalabrine, I think this would be an awesome fate for our dear Captain. Thoughts?
He's five inches shorter, so there's that issue.
Agreed. That 15-footer from the elbow was very encouraging.
Al Borges looking gorgeous, in the crowd
Don't like how the refs have become so whistle happy with M up big late in second half
Man this is ugly to watch, total breakdowns on D and our three point shooting is non existant
Not liking how we fell asleep after going up big. Hate when my favorite teams lack killer instinct (looking at you Red Wings).
Why did Smotrycz dribble there? Keep the ball high and it won't get knocked away.
Michigan just about blew this game. Team should be embarrassed for their last few minutes of play.
gotta finish better
Iowa State making 3s. 72-66 M with free throws coming for M
Holy crap. If we weren't making foul shots we could lose this. Up 20 then collapsed.
