Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Trey Burke post game interview
Crazy, but he said "Shout out to invisible spoon in Lynchburg, Va!" You totally missed it.
This may be crazy and who knows what the future holds but as I watched and listned to him after the game I thought what a great representative of Michigan. I also saw a future NBA hall of fame player spending his post retirement days as an NBA analyst on ESPN. Did anyone else see that?
I saw next year's Wooden Award winner.
That was a little more hazy but I did see that too.
Nah. Jimmy Jackson will never be in the HOF.
Lmao plus1 to you sir
apparently everybody is peeing.
i'm curious myself--mr. yost said something about a freshman slip up in the other thread, but i was on the phone and missed it.
"Shout out to invisible spoon in Lynchburg, Va!"
Edit: Beaten to the punch..............this proves it's legit.
Everything you'd expect the second coming of Jesus to say.
His mouth said a lot of things, but his eyes said "I'm going to bed."
They said that he was great with his left hand. They asked how it got good with the left and he said hours of practice, that he thought it was a weakness so he improved. They asked about how he switched it up and didn't use the pick and roll and he said they had talked about it in the huddle, he had become predictable so he faked it and was surprised how open he was.
He talked about the senior leadership of zack and stu. They kept the team up in the huddle. And he said he was tired. He gave a great interview.
he liked how they were playing the zone and didn't think they should have gone back to man. I wonder if the squad gives him a little ribbing for questioning the coach in an interview.
but I thought he said that they should have listened to the coach because they suggested going to man, but then Minne got off a couple of open shots, hence they should have stayed in zone.
I also thought he might have been questioning the coach, but the second time I listened to it it's clear Michigasling is right. Beilein originally had them playing zone, but then the players convinced him to let them play man-to-man. Burke is saying that they should have stuck with zone like Beilein wanted.
that's what she said...
He played one hell of a game!
Impressive how effective his game was with so few misses.
We need to hit freethrows and rebound better if we want to win another tournament game (Big Ten or NCAA)
That pretty much summed it up, I will add that the guys interviewing were gushing basically.
This kid is such a stud and mature and has such a great attitude. So some thought he was a 3 star recruit huh? Bwhahahahahahahaha, yeah right!
I moved to Lynchburg not long ago - not sure where there are good bars to watch games. Where did you check it out tonight?
I'm at Buffalo Wild Wings for the evening.
i thought you could get audio boxes at all bdubs...
But you could've asked this in another thread...in fact we're talking about this in another thread...
Not to be the thread police, but didn't you create another thread about the Michigan game when we already had a Michigan game thread going....
Dude is incredible.
If I were him I would go back to the hotel and pass the fuck out until tomorrow.
Burke was phenomenal, but how about the gutsy call by Belein at the end? Smotrycz hadn't scored but has ice in his veins when called upon!
Beilein has confidence in his guys, even when they're struggling, and it seems to rub off on them. How many times this season have we seen one of our players struggle for 35 minutes and then drill huge shots down the stretch? Hardaway alone has followed that script quite a few times.
Damn Bill Walton has a big head.
I know this is a large statement but does anyone else think Burke is the best freshman we've had since Webber? He's got what BiIl Simmons refers to as the "point guard gene" while still being able to score at will. I can't emphasize enough how impressed I was with him tonight.
You could emphasize more by using ALL CAPS because I yell when I emphasize.
Oh, the ever elusive double post. Must be the beer.
1. Are you Brandon Inge's dad?
2. The strep throat I caught at the L'burg airport caused me to miss the UTL game.
3. "Cool story Bro!" - I know.
2. Wow, that sucks! I would've gone anyway. You should have been there, it was the most awesome game ever, the crowd was electric. I felt sorry for the people who had to watch it at home.........erm, but I'm sure your experience was cool too.
How do you know you caught the strep throat in the airport?
inevitably led to making out with the coughing and hacking former Senator Larry Craig
He was more humble than the normal career high scoring player would be, gave credit to the coaches, gave credit to the rest of his teammates, said he still had stuff to work on. Michigan Man talk, always about the ol' team. Hail and rejoice for the coming of Burke to replace Darrius as an effective point guard.
LYNCHBURG REPRESENT!!!! Sorry, got a little excited. RMWC grad over here.
