The initial thread is longer than long...the officials are badder than bad.
Michigan vs. Minnesota in the BTT. OVERTIME.
Where's the rebounding!? Anger.
Hightower and the gang are terrible!
Freshman playing big time basketball!
Just under 3 left in OT and we're out of time-outs.
lead despite the refs blatant hatred toward Zack Novak.
You gotta be kidding me, Stu.
Stu with a clutch 2!
Why is the officiating so bad? What is this madness.
The clock winding down...don't help off your man!!
I think I might love Trey Burke
All of a sudden I don't like the 3-point line.
66-63 Mich just under 2 mins remaining OT
Hats off to the Gophers, nice play...better execution. I like that we're switching screens by the guards. They just made a big play. We've gotta kill time, get a good shot.
Jeez, they're having quite the game from behind the arc.
Wish I could watch, link sucks
We need Morgan out on offense so he's not shooting free throws!
You called, it, Vogrich in for Morgan.
WTF was that call? Where was the foul?!
to feel comfortable
Trey Burke = Assassin.
What are they calling?!?!? Burke drives and gets fouled but no call, then Minny does the same thing and they get the call. Bull!
Up 4...Hardaway headed to the line! Finish the half on a 17-3 run!
God damn Burke is amazing. What a game by him!
Never a doubt.
73-67 .12.4 remaining
Well we were outplayed for 38 minutes tonight. A bad win is better than a good loss.
...a few posts ago, I said we needed 71 to win...#justsayin ;)
Trey Burke career high 30 points...player of the game!
The couple guys calling the game a loss near the end of regulation is true flamebait. Great ending to the game!
Wow, nothing is ever easy w/this team. Oh, and Kenpom (and Brian) nail it.
We battled the officials, battled the OSU fans rooting for Minny, we played smart and won.
Burke is by far the best player we have and he's a true frosh!
Survive and advance. GO BLUE!!
Now let's never speak of it again. I need a drink...
Trey played a great game...had a little freshman slip up in the postgame interview, but I chalk it up to nerves and exhaustion. Also it was too many questions, I'm sure he just wanted to get a shower and a bed at this point.
Along those same lines...I think OT may help us a tad. It sends the Ohio game deeper into the night. Then they have to turn around and play us (assuming they win) at 4pm tomorrow.
what'd he say?
He tried to say that Coach Jordan told him he was being to predictable with the ball screen in the first half, but he stumbled over the word predictable 2 or 3 times.
i was expecting something a lot worse based on what mr. yost said.
He answer that question quite well...he said he was being predictable so coach Jordan told him to "Bingo" it and fake the pick and roll and take it to the basket and he was surprised at how open the lane was.
Nothing wrong with that. And even the other one, it was kind of a "cringe" moment, but you know he didn't mean it. Just not used to the interviews quite yet...especially after playing every minute of regulation and overtime.
Wait, I must be missing something. He didn't stumble over those words, was he not supposed to say that or something? Or did he not actually mean to say "bingo it"? I just assumed that was some slang within the locker room.
He accidently threw Beilein under the bus, lol.
He got confused by Gary Williams' question which was something like "you guys really slowed them down in the zone, tell us about that."
And he responded with something like "Yea, we started off in man...then switched to the zone and they took a lead. They were playing well and making shots. In the huddle we kept asking to go back to man but the coaches kept us in zone and we got behind."
You can never tell what Burke is thinking, but I know he didn't mean it like that. I'm sure he may have thought it, but I think he was just confused and kind of tired of answering questions. It was like question #6 as his sat on the B1G Set (after he'd already been interviewed on the floor). He just looked like "someone get me out of here, I'm tired, I want my team and I don't wanna talk anymore."
but the announcers seemed to think that the switch to zone had helped. i'm guessing trey and the team had a different feeling based on how the game felt like it was going instead of based on scoring. if that's right, it shows that beilein and co. know what they're doing, right?
