Paging Bball Research Gurus - How do Beilein teams do on the 3rd game in 3 days?

Paging Bball Research Gurus - How do Beilein teams do on the 3rd game in 3 days?

Submitted by alum96 on March 10th, 2017 at 3:39 PM

Absolutely fantastic theater these 2 days.

My worry pre tournament is my memories of some of the NBA player full UM games tiring later in BTT.  Maybe my memory is foggy but we seem to lose our sea legs - understandably - as a jump shooting team playing that 3rd game in a row.  I know the sample size is small but I'm curious how many times we've advanced to the 3rd game in a row and how our outside shooting looked those games.

Exaggerating that, we seem to be down to a 7 person rotation at this point and hitting a wall about 5 minutes into the 2nd half tommorow is a big worry.  Talk me out of it.

Rooting interest for the weekend?

As I type this, MSU and Minnesota are rockfighting at 12-10 at the under 12 timeout in the first half. What is your best case scenario for the weekend?

Personally,  I would not be averse to Michigan losing in the semis, if it's to Minnesota, if only to save their legs, since nearly  everyone on twitter was noting both team's exhaustion at the end of the game.

Obviously, if they win out, it's a great memory and probably pushes their seeding much higher, but I'd be concerned with how they might perform next week, i.e. 2006 Syracuse. 

Matt Painter's scouting report (unserious)

Matt Painter's scouting report (unserious)

Submitted by stephenrjking on March 9th, 2017 at 4:55 PM

Matt Painter sips his coffee. The mug clatters softly as he shakily sets it on the coaster. He is trying to read the Washington Post in his hotel suite as his assistants speak in hushed tones in the other room. The only other sound is his son, sitting on the bed, playing games on his iPhone. He listens for a moment. He shudders as hears the muffled but unmistakable announcer's call: "He's on fire!"

Not NBA Jam. Not today of all days.

He sets down his newspaper and calls to his assistants. "Hey, Jack, do you have the scouting report for tomorrow?" He tugs his collar nervously. 

"Right here, coach," says Jack Owens, setting the packet on the table. It is newly printed, but there are already smudges of dripping sweat and creases where Owens was gripping the pages.

Painter picks up his coffee and opens the cover sheet to glance at the opponent rundown.

Painter's mug plunges from his hand. It strikes the table and shatters, lukewarm coffee splashing everywhere. The packet falls to the floor, eluding his desperate swipe to catch it. His son looks up from the game. "You ok, Dad?"

Painter stares at the packet for a moment. "I'm fine, son, I'm fine." He picks up the packet and mutters unintelligibly under his breath. He rubs his eyes. He opens the cover and looks again.

He catches the nervous glance of Owens through the door, and they hold eye contact for an extra moment. He looks away and tosses the packet to the side.

His mouth twitches involuntarily.

Submitted by mgowild on March 9th, 2017 at 1:57 PM

It sounds like the B1G let Michigan choose when they wanted to play, and Michigan chose noon (12:20). Also, it looks like MSU and PSU would've swapped game times if Michigan wanted to.

Sorry to rain on the "Bash Delany and the B1G" parade, but it seems like they were pretty accomodating.
