Puerto Rico Tip-Off Updated Bracket
Those Hoyas have really come to play in 2013 tournaments. SMH.
Let's hold off on the schadenfreude until after the game.
The Michigan v. Long Beach State game starts at 5:00 pm on ESPN2.
For some reason all the streams think Michigan is going to be on ESPN U. They are all pointed at that channel which is UAB and New Mexico...
Nevermind..it just switched.
Mich up 25-14 with 11:34 left in half
He can't hate on Michigan too much, since you know, his son plays for us.
link if anyone wonders http://nutjob.eu/njtvx6.html (game stream)
That was a stupid angle to switch to.
It looks like MI plays well in empty arenas so far.
they powers have CROSSED STREAMS (omg, apocalypse)
Anyone have a correct stream yet?
answered above - cheers.
Look at it from a players standpoint. I'm sure they love taking a week long trip to Puerto Rico.
That could have been alley-oop time
27-14 10 min left
32--14 9:17 left
In my head I thought we were playing alright but all that well. Then all of the sudden I notice that we have 32 points halfway throught the first half.....
LOL. Horford should not shoot 3s.
Shit. Need a time out. Get the ball inside to McGary! WTF!
Nice cut there.
Dakich going full creeper mode.
Really miss Burke. So far no to take over when the team is struggling. It is early so I hope someone emerges. There has been some nice moves by Walton Jr. but he needs to finish.
Offense stagnant for too long there. I think we need to make a more concerted effort to get Stauskas some touches when things go stale. He's been making good decisions with the ball in his hands so far this season. Walton is pressing too much, just needs to let things come to him. Can't have bigs chucking threes, either. Horford and Bielfeldt need to be working down low and stop trying to play shooting guard. Robinson needs to make an impact in these games, too. Way too quiet for a half of basketball against a so-so team. Trying to figure out where he's improved from last year. I think his three point shooting from up top has gotten better... hard time finding another area, though. Hope to see more as the year goes on.
Also need to get the ball to McGary more.
I figure he'll be a little more involved offensively as the season goes on. He's only just gotten back into action recently. I do like his passing - good two man ball with Stauskas a bit ago.
Refuse to play 2 bigs?
Morgan and Horford are both solid with their own strengths.
Remember that "continuation" that Iowa State was given? Michigan has had more than one of those today that should have been continuation if the one for Iowa State was.
Let it go, brah.
Irvin has for to dive for that ball
Wouldn't mind seeing Spike play more as Walton gets adjusted
Dakich is all over our nuts right now. Oh how times have changed.
Jordan Morgan BEST BALL SCREEN HEDGER IN AMERICA!
That kid has the biggest calves in college basketball.
Fuck you with the Red Sox worship
Very frustrating right now
I feel like we're going to get expoited by bigger teams. Our interior defense is soft, and obviously our defensive rebounding is pretty poor. Get healthy Mitch!
Ugh... this team has been waiting around for us to put them away and we keep getting stagnant for stretches and letting them back in.
sloppy sloppy sloppy
These announcers literally have no clue what is happening in this game
Dear dumbass announcer we never had a full 35 second shot clock. That's the issue here....
That was the worst.
Why is it so hard to understand that we took the timeout prior to 15 seconds being left on the clock. Why are people so stupid? It makes me sad
Walton looks lost right now
McGary has to get touches on the block. He's the best player on the team.
I'm not sure I'd say the best but I agree with feeding him the ball
McGary is our only interior scorer and an excellent passer. We need to feed him the ball and run the offense through him.
He can be a bit of a black hole, with these shooters I'd like to throw it in and kick it out for a jumper. Mitch is at his best when he creates on the offensive boards
Caris looks like he's 16
Don't start that again
Carefull there, you could start a storm....
Bielfeldt BEST CALVES IN AMERICA
A decent overall game coming off a loss, really... we had some lulls, need to go inside more, find McGary (though part of that I expect is his mssing so much practice, they're not used to him yet.) Stauskas and LeVert have obviously improved a lot, if we can just get McGary blended back into the offense and some better decision making out of Walton - and I think we will as he gets experience - we'll be tough to beat. Gonna take time for this team to reach potential I think, but the ceiling is still pretty high.
Championships are not won in November.
If we can make it out of the non-conference portion of the schedule with 2-3 losses we will be fine. This team will get better as the season goes on and we want it to be at its peak in March (and hopefully April).
2,4,6 are correct
Dackich is the biggest hair donkey/jack hole covering college basketball.
Derek Walton was our leading rebounder today with 7 DRebs.
Not a good thing.
That stauskus and mcgary stay healthy. Despite the pub, staukus is this teams most important player. And I see little out of horford and morgan. Walton struggled too. I hope we beat vcu but I bet we don't.
That's a really pathetic mentality.
Freshman PGs don't typically come in and become Trey Burke in November.
McGary is still banged up. Zak Irvin is going to be a monster. Remember how raw THJ was in November 2010?
Mcgary and stauskus are by far the two most important players on this team. And I said walton struggled. He did. I didnt say he wouldn't improve. Irvin was non existent. Didnt say he won't improve either.
I think it was the whole, "I bet we don't" comment. That's quite the negative attitude, especially since we won't be playing Shaka's Havoc.
Theyre down 14 to FSU...
62-38 right now. Havent seen fsu this year but they are typically big and athletic. This team better man up.
VCU down 70-46.
So this suddenly went from a great tournament to a boring tournament with an interesting losers bracket
Is this evening's game at 5 ET or 6 ET? I'm seeing conflicting times for the game in various media.
I've got 5:00p ET on ESPN2.
