Little Big Dog?
They have looked horrible, but they are up by 10...talent and depth...If they boxed out and played better post defense....whooh
Settle down. Its the first game against a very athletic D2 school.
Rebounding seems pretty weak when they have GRIII at the 4 spot. Going to be an issue again this year if JB refuses to play 2 posts.
WHO WANTS SOME PIZZA?
I am so pumped for some pizza house feta bread.
I forgot the BBall open threads always contain:
Non-stop ref questioning.
It wouldn't be a basketball game without non-stop ref questioning.
Basketball is more parity where a d2 team can compete somewhat against a d1 team. I believe we will be a top 5 team if McGary can stay out of foul trouble.
I'll grant that they might be better than I am giving them credit for. Still, people around the country will get a chuckle out of UM struggling with a D2 school.
Who cares? It's the 1st game of the season with 4 freshman being inserted into the rotation. If this game was in February and we're struggling against a D2 school then freak out but not now. C'mon man!
People will see Michigan up by 16 at halftime and not think anything of it.
Won 3 games and 1 of them was against a d2 school. Slippery Rock is not good at all
The refs sure are calling a lot of fouls.
Stauskus is going to be a free throw hitting machine...I like our lineup coming down the stretch and iceing games...Hardaway, Albrecht, Burke, Stauskas
Trying to get all fancy pants.
It's not a joke. GVSU beat MSU the year they went to the final four.
Horford looks pretty solid so far.
Ya, especially since according to the announcer he set a pick for himself and scored. Impressive stuff.
He is also now Tim Duncan.
perfect slate for a young team.
there are going to be kinks to be worked out before the acc/b1g game.
I am going to bed to get up in 5 hours and start the trek north to the Big House. Trying to make it up there in time to enjoy a little tailgating. Go Blue.
If you can't fall asleep pretend you're the Michigan QB and run all the plays in your head. It works every time.
I'd advise pretending to be the Michigan RB instead - you don't even have to worry about imagining that you're gaining yards.
Not a great finish there. But I'll take the lead.
and we're not really struggling being up 14 points. If we keep up what we did in the first half, we'll win by 30.
Apparently that is not good enough.
I know this is really messed up, but I would laugh so hard if one of them fell right now.
Unicycle Half-Time Show!!!!!!!!!!!
You know what would have been a better halftime show? Lewan riding out their on a twosie. The crowd would have erupted. He wouldn't have had to do tricks or anything, just take a lap around the court.
Thoughts so far...
They have talent, athleticism, and depth. Hardaway has played within himself, and based off the first half, you would think he is the All American and not Burke. Horford looks like a very good piece off of the bench.
On the downside, this team is treating 'The Rock' as a Division II team. Poor boxing out, bad effort, and playing a little recklessly on the offensive end. Morgan has not impressed me in this half. He really needs his offense worked through playmakers, whereas Horford and Robinson seem to be able to create on their own. McGary needs to calm down a little to stay out of foul trouble, but I like his effort on the defensive end.
Overall, we have played poorly (~C- grade) and are winning handily. We have played an extended bench (10 on my count), and while doing it, doesn't seem like we take a significant step back. Morgan needs to bring more to the court or he will be passed by tthe more athletic big men on this roster. Good experience game
Agreed, especially on the defensive end - just letting dudes blow past them for some offensive rebounds and extra shots.
OK. Stream skips like crazy while the game is on, barely skips at all during halftime show. Anyone else have that going on?
Someone said try changing the 2500 in the url to lower the quality. I had skipping issues when I was using my work comp, but works fine for me at home.
Thank you. I'll try it.
I switched to the audio feed. David Merritt rocks.
Wow, he was angry
EDIT: Damn, you beat me to it. Too quick for me.
Hardaway with a "man slam". Love it.
These announcers are awesome.
Love seeing Hardaway fired up like this. He seemed to lack that a lot last year.
This team has so many weapons.
Well, hopefully this game is an indicator of Hardaways play for the remainder of the year. He is playing with authority right now.
