He has two personal fouls. Why risk a third? I'll take being down one point at the half if it means he can play big minutes in the second half.

My only concern would be that he might be cold and might take a bit to heat up in the second. Hopefully, that isn't the case because we need him to be big in the second half.
Timmy is a second half player. In the Maui tourney, he definitely scored most of his points in the second half. If I'm not mistaken, he scored all of his points vs. Duke in the second half.
That was true last year as well. In the home MSU game, I think he scored all of his points in the second half.
also hate to call out beilein, but these 10 man rotations are getting annoying
This early in the season you are still looking for the right rotation so it will be cut donw as he finds out the rotation he wants.
Work well together in different situations, and vs. different line-ups.
Don't look now, but Eastern is only down 8 at half to the Syracuse Fine Touches.
I love this kid
Smotrycz and Burke are taking over.
I'm diggin the retro gym socks look
Hey guys, deep shots = deep rebounds...
vintage Smot, makes a nice drive to the basket, and commits a dumb foul at the other end
So we can't rebound at all? Paging McGary
Trey Burke just owns Virginia 3-on-1. Crazy good moves.
that spin move made me shout.
Virginia is gonna double us up on shots if were not careful
these are some pretty soft fouls. I guess, you'd expect nothing less with ACC refs.
Really? That's a block? Even Joe Harris stood there with his hands up acting like he did nothing because even he knew that was a charge.
Every time we score we gift them a bucket with a turnover or foul, we need to pull away fast
Does anyone miss the physical basketball of the 80s and 90s as much as me? The weak little touch fouls really get my blood boiling these days. Especially when the offensive player blatantly initiates the contact.
34 points and we have 3 guys in double figures. Interesting.
Morgan with the Slam!
on a Monstrous!! Jordan Morgan dunk
Hello my name is TIMMMMMMMY
Seriously, let em play refs
I believe it is TIMMMMMAAAAAYYYY
Obligatory MAZandBLUE bitching comment about the basket still counting despite it being an offensive foul......
Can't wait for McGary, we cannot grab a rebound
inconsistent his entire career. If we could get anything out of him, it would be a different ball game
neither team has any playmaking ability so far
What a weak foul called on Smot
That was a bad foul by Smotrycz.
Can someone give me a score and time left? Please and Thank you!
Burke starting to force it a little bit and not run the offense, still tied, and Smotz just picked up a 4th foul
This game sucks !!! Michigan is letting UVA hang in there and you know what they say when you let a team hang in there for too long
Lot of dribbling on the offensive end
I wish Smot could learn how to not get in foul trouble....
I wish he'd freakin' stop forcing shots like an idiot.
if we're not careful, this one could get away
The refs in this game are being very sensitive.
i guess we decided not to run any offensive sets this game. not working out so well.
Burke and Douglass are making us easy to guard by dribbling down the clock and then trying to turn the corner off the high screen.
no flow in the offense....dribble drive without any movement. 3 bad shots in a row.
Beilein needs a timeout.
We should not be losing this game right now, I don't see the hustle on the offensive or defensive end so far
Everything is one on one. We cant beat them this way. We have to run our offense
I haven't agreed with a single foul call on either team this half. Do they know that it isn't required to blow the whistle every time down the floor?
Agreed. It's pathetic what's called anymore these days.
