Let's put the biscuit in the basket.
whatever it takes to improve out shooting
...is doing the color commentary. I forgot he isn't on ESPN's NBA show anymore.
Also Utah does, in fact, have gigantic white men on the team.
7'3" white center
I saw him play two years ago when he was in high school against my high school, he was definitely not very impressive. But again, that was when he was a senior in high school so we'll see now
Is not playing tonight. Flu.
Defense has looked better in this game than any I've seen so far.
I was just about to say the exact same thing. We're rotating and filling the lanes MUCH better than we have so far this year.
And if Manny keeps making threes like that, I think we'll be in good shape. Utah is doing a pretty good job on the defensive end to make us force the questionable looks.
but its early and 1-3-1 might work in this game since utah is big and not as athletic as the past few teams michigan has played. Only down side is it opens up the three from the corner which utah has already exploited.
That's true. I'm wondering how big of an impact playing Gibson so much might have something to do with our success on defense and the less than stellar shot selection on offense.
But did you see what the Utah-guy-that-made-those-two-3s did on the next play? That must of destroyed all of his confidence.
agreed - i liked how we started in man then switched into the 1-3-1 on the made baskets, caught utah a bit off guard, and also keeping their 7'3"-er out of sync, hes also slow as hell so if we can force turnovers and score in transition that'll be huge
Glad to see Morris drive to the basket like that early in the game. It's something we need more of
Want to punch that Marshall Henderson punk so badly! He's making 3s, followed by making a chest-thumping clown of himself.
Manny hit a 3 what!
We look super sloppy so far.
Tommy Amaker and Harvard beat Boston College, and we didn't? Lame.
morris made a three? whaaat?
MAKE THE DAMN FREE THROWS
Morris is playing like a champ. That was a sweet pass by Manny to set it up.
driving to the basket in the first half! finally! hopefully he keeps it up, it opens up the three ball
We haven't seen it yet this season
Mor-mon, Mor-mon, Mor-mon...
Used that before a match-up between these schools in another sport (not to be mentioned..) last year. Here's to a better outcome!
I wish we weren't having to listen to Izzo during a Michigan game. He's a great guy, great coach, but man, this is totally unnecessary.
"sometimes a missed shot is the best offense (against a matchup zone)" ... thought that was an interesting point.
I despise the in-game interview. Usually networks at least reserve it for the second half of a blowout. Why now?
seems like we've played 8 minutes of defense in 10 minutes of play..
That's about the 4th easy layup for Utah now. I'd like to see those stop happening.
Is anybody else having trouble getting the Live Audio to work on MGoBlue? No sound for me.
Thanks for the help!
You can listen online at womc 104.3
Izzo infomerical. STFU Izzo.
Can we get Tom Izzo out of here? What's up with that, right in the middle of our game?
Therefore, his presence was warranted.
Not during live game action. To hear the announcers practically give Izzo a handjob and let him ramble--while the game is going on--is not why I tuned in. I can see speaking to him at half time, but not interrupting the game.
Nice to see Sims suck the tall freak out to the perimeter. He definitely doesn't look comfortable trying to defend the three. Good hit by Sims
If simms can make the big man come out it should open up the inside as well
That kid is on fire. 5th(?) 3 of the first half. Dropping everything
This Henderson kid is a bonafide toolshed.
He's from Texas and he goes to school in Utah. You know he thinks he's the biggest MF'n deal ever there.
I'm already looking for plane tix to SLC so I can find him and mock him. He's the most annoying basketball player I've ever witnessed. Already.
Can't wait for him to cool off and keep heaving up bad 3s in the second half. Should be good for the equivalent of 6 TOs.
are already starting thats good news
that kid may be a huge douche-nozzle, but I would really like some of our players to show that kind of passion and excitement to be out there playing instead of all looking like they want to cry after every time the other team makes a basket.
his first real minutes this year?
again being attacked at the elbows...and maybe might wanna put a hand in that froshs face when hes shooting
They've actually been contested. He just puts crazy Scotty Thurman arc on his shots and the bright side of variance has been on his side. He'l cool off soon.
he hit in the corner were pretty wide open
If anyone is in the small Brighthouse imprint in Michigan, the game is on channel 557. I was not aware this channel existed, but it apparently does.
I would plus a million to you if I could. I couldn't find it so I just started checking updates on the internet. How on earth did you find it on channel 557?!?!? At least I get to watch the 2nd half now.
last week against was raji for BC lighting us up in the first half... this week its henderson... ugh
