These 5 on the floor are not going to be scoring much, no one can create a shot.
Michigan-Virginia B-Ball Open Thread
Thankfully, they don't shoot very well
I love our Maize jerseys.
I hope Curtis Staples doesn't get hot from beyond the arch for VA. If he does, game over.
Get a ladder and take the lid off the basket.
tough calls going against M, but we're lucky they can't shoot
Can somebody throw up the score occasionally. I like reading everyones comments while I'm on the road but I hate having to switch between apps to see the score. Thank you in advance.
Eastern Michigan 17
Ill put it in all my posts from now on
Burke is awesome, huge three at the buzzer
Trey Burke three pointerrrrrr. I miss Manny....
13-10 Mich 810 left in 1st
Is there anyway we can get a chat open like we do for the football games?
It slows down the site apparently, so not a good idea for more minor events.
An announcer who knows we don't ALWAYS use the 1-3-1? I'm impressed.
You mean Jay Bias isn't calling this game? Whaaaaa?
defense playing solid right now.
EDIT: too bad we can't capitalize
More fouls than I'd like though...
I've never understood for 4 years how Stu and Novak have so much trouble making layups.
You could tell Smotrycz was going to reach in on that one. Couldn't help himself
At this rate, this may be the 2nd game in 4 days that Michigan wins 40-34
...but I think it opens up a bit in the second half. THJ will be back in the game and creating offense for us.
"As far as offense goes, this isn't a Picasso."
Smot bails them out with a cheap reach in foul late in the shot clock.
17-12, UVA shooting 1-1 after the TO.
his customary 17-20pts in the second half. At this pace that should be more than enough to secure a win
Were Eso Akunne and Christian expected to get much playing time this season? I've already seen a lot more of them than I did last year. Would be great if we can get some productive depth.
We're gonna lose a game over free throw shooting here if we don't get it in order....
i thought we would have forever learned from the wisconsin game last year.
This is like the Wisconsin-PSU game in the big ten tournament last year.
19-18 M, with 2 mins to go in the 1st. Both teams having more trouble scoring than a gaggle of acne-ridden D & D players at a middle school dance.
Glad Morgan is coming back in, Christian can't make a layup, a free throw, or a jumper.
No way we lose this game. TImmy will get his 15 in the 2nd and our defense is better than theirs no matter what the announcers say.
jinx watch is officially on
Eso. He plays good D, but he might as well never cross the half court line for Offense
Like our football team, we will perform better in the second half
2 missed foul shots, then missed open jumper and then turns the ball over and fouls the guy...not a good stretch, UM up 19-18, with 1:56 left
Morgan, airball free throw. Ugh.
Mclimans and Jordan in atthesametime. 20-19 good guys
Were they giving the Asshole chant to Morgan? Da fuck?
Whoops, my bad
They talk about Zack Novak's three year captaincy every single game. I'm not tired of it.
Not a great half, but with THJ's minutes reduced big time, you've gotta feel good about Michigan's chances.
Down 1 at half, gotta think THJ will be the difference in the 2nd half
Given the halftime score, I assume Michigan wins this one 40-34
On that final possession. He was wide open
Tenacious defensive battle. I like that, except for the losing by one part. Get 'em, Blue!
Hate to call out Beilein, but I think he was being way too conservative with sitting THJ basically the entire half...
