Bielfeldt playing well...
...says Denzel Valentine of Big Ten Tourney favorite MSU, which is 5-7 in its last 12 games. Cumong, man.
Bielfeldt playing well...
The challenge is going to be keeping the team from letting up in the second half. Usually that is where youth shows. We'll see if they can keep it going.
2nd half last night was way better, but then again the game was still quite competitive at the half.
Here's to another 100-pointer.
What the fuck Michigan?!? Only 42 points at halftime!?!? Completely acceptable!!!!!!!
Better than the challenge CSU has in front of it.
Are we intermingling men's and women's basketball now ESPN? Is that what we're doing? Sandwiching women's highlights in between men's games as if they're just as interesting/exciting? I'll allow it, because I have no choice, but I'm not amused.
It might be the only way to get the public to watch those highlights. Clever ESPN, clever.
If I have to watch that gigantic 13 year old boy play basketball one more time this year it will be too soon.
I'm enjoying this game. Talk about a massacre.
You can't predict how good a defense a team is going to play after two games. This teams has so much upside, it's ridiculous. IMHO Glenn Robinson is the most talented player to come to Michigan since Cwebb. (Remember I said talent...)
I hope to gawd this isn't a jinx, but I just picked up two tickets to the semifinals in NYC. Just ban me now, I guess.
I think you're safe...just a hunch.
I have tickets to the championship round. If Michigan makes it to MSG and something unexpected happens there Michigan would still be playing Friday. Fun game so far.
Honestly speechless after the first half cant wait for Big Ten play!!!!
Are the people who are finding ways to be unhappy with this half joking? I can't tell...
Giant panda sighting!!!!!!
OT, but Gary Harris is looking pretty good for State right now.
Bryce Harper in Dick's commercial LOL how appropriate
/I keed because I'm a Nats fan
Gunna be a fun couple weeks at the Garden for M sports between this and the hockey game. Why did I break up with the girl who lived in Midtown?
according to half time studio folks, everything is ginormous.
honestly, if you're going to try and be a real journalist, at least use real words.
The more I see of this team the more I like it. At first the lofty ranking made me wonder if expectations were too high. But this is a very deep and strong team.
I can't wait to see the highlights from this game....and it's only halftime. What an exciting team...WOW is all I can say.
Looks like no rematch with Virgina as Delaware beat them.
Stauskas makes 3's look like lay-ups.
I've said this 6 times in 2 days...but again, the versatility is just going to be a staple.
Clev. St. goes zone, we miss a couple 3's...and bring in Stauskas in who bury's a 3. We just have too many weapons.
Jordan Morgan: athletic
Poor timing for a play breakdown.
How did I miss a shooting foul in the time it took them to show a replay? I don't know whether that is more embarassing for Cleveland State or ESPN
CSU is finally starting to drop these outside shots.
good for B1G I guess
That was a sweet move by Appling on the last possession they showed.
Appling looked pretty clutch tonight at the end. Anyone know if he was a factor in Germany?
He played fine, but it wasn't his best game. 17 pts on 7-17 shooting, 4 assists.
Looks like MSU beat Kansas.
Stauskas for 4.
Pearl is right in his criticism of that possession, though. The ball is not moving fast enough against the trap.
shut up Bruce. Any shot for Stauskaus is a good shot.
Stauskas is raining threes today. This team definitely looks dangerous.
I don't care if it's way too early - Stauskas is my new favorite player.
So potential four point play but I will complain because I am a Michigan fan. We are definitely struggling to break the zone. Which is probably good practice for games that are real.
Stauskas is a deadly sniper but can also go to the rack just as well.
GRIII has struggled with his shot tonight.
We're struggling in the 2nd half (comparatively) both offensively and defensively. Still up 20+ but you'd like to see us maintain the level of focus and intensity and continue to work on things at least until the 8 minute media timeout.
Especially since Clev. St. has come out in a zone press and zone halfcourt defense. Take this time to really work and perfect your game. We look very sloppy in the 2nd half.
Sure we're going to win, we may even win by 35+, but you'd like to see us make the most out of our possessions and get better.
It's a great teaching opportunity here to practice against zone and press in a game situation. Hopefully JB makes sure the players use it that way rather than fun-time-alley-oop-fest which I assume most 18-22 kids would rather turn it into.
I'm glad I didn't get negged with "we're up 30...shutup," but that's exactly what I was trying to say. There are still teaching moments at least until 5 minutes left.
I don't disagree with the content of that post. I would just like a little more positivity...I mean we are up 30. Obviously we are not executing perfectly but you seem unfairly dismissive of the lead.
This is the first time a young team is playing a trap zone, I wouldn't call them struggling a bit a loss of focus and intensity.
GRIII looks mortal today
OMG DENARD SIGHTING
Where's the Squaretree?
Who's the chick? Is that Denard's girlfriend? Luckiest!!!
