winner gets 3rd place in Maui and a nice confidence booster.
starts at 7:45
Memphis and Georgetown went into overtime.
Have they said when it will tip off? I'm trying to watch it on my phone while traveling.
About to tip now.
Good to see Tim getting a touch on the first possession
I absolutely cannot understand why Adidas is making us wear these ridiculous shoes and socks.
I know. Terrible. At least have them be Michigan blue.
I agree, I can't stand the color and I'm writing to Dave Brandon as we speak. I hope this Adidas contract ends soon!
I thought it was the Maui Invitational. Doesn't everyone have those shoes? (And warmups?)
All Adidas schools participating in the tournament are wearing the shoes/socks/warmups. See the Adidas press release about it here:
I would say, don't hate the shoes, hate local artist Che Pilago.
"pays homage to Maui's tropical waters"
Um, OK. It looks more like they pay homage to the wallpaper in my grandmother's bathroom.
for the AdiZero basketball shoe line. I kinda like 'em.
If ES touches it right now he's pulling. Not even looking to pass. Reminds me of playing middle school basketball.
But it's working.....
Gets blocked twice and was lucky enough to get the ball back and make the layup. Both times it was two-on-one though and it was a bad decision to shoot.
Smot isn't explosive enough to just go up and slam it, he gets stuffed every time he tries. At least he was able to slip by and hit the reverse layup.
Smotz is just having a horrible tournament. He is playing bad defense, horrible shot selection, and won't pass the damn ball causing him to be blocked twice now. Been trying to hold off on the critizing but he's just killing me to the point where my little sister is asking why he's even playing...
Good basketball night for me, Michigan-UCLA then Syracuse-VT.
A nice appetizer for the Thanksgiving main course tomorrow Lions-Packers.
I could've sworn that Reeves Nelson was on those Final Four teams with Affalo, Shipp, and Love.
Does anyone have a link?

Michigan should win this going away as long as they don't get careless. UCLA looks lost most of the time on both ends.
Agreed UCLA looks completely disorganized and clueless. Their interior strength and some lucky 3-pointers are all that's keeping them in the game.
is good. A little wild, but very good.
I really hope he stays four years. It would be awesome having stability with him at the point for that long.
At half against Milwaukee...
Our defense is dominating UCLA right now.
Man, that's fun to watch.
c'mon gotta keep it up
That's what she said
Akunne strikes me as the new Anthony Wright.
Again, how in the hell can there be an offensive foul but the bucket still counts??
Stupid college rule?
"I'll slam this so f-ing hard..."
according to rivals when they came out of HS, they were rated 59th and 60th in the country.
looks awful right now
Those shoes aren't helping! Anyone else hate the shoes and think we should go back to the old ones? Make sure to contact the AD! Fan input does make a difference!
He has lookedtentative to start the season.
Smots just needs to learn when to be aggressive.
Even when he looks to pass it is far too late.
I agree. He's really making some bad choices out there. I love the guy but he's had a rough start so far this year. I'm sure he'll come on strong right when we need him. I know JB encourages them to shoot through the woes.
Michigan is going strong at the basket today. It's like they are playing angry.
We have only attempted 4 3pts so far.
Step back, kiss my self
did Horford add this past off season?
He still needs another 15-20 IMO. He also needs to get a lot stronger
I'm not sure, but he has looked fresh this game since he didn't get much time vs. Duke.
He does look much bigger this year. Last year he looked as skiiny as THJr.
What a play by burke.
