I think the bolded teams are the ones Michigan is rooting for to get the best odds to make the NCAA Tournament.

Texas A&M 71, LSU 38 F            SEC Semis

St. Joseph's 82, Dayton 79 F      A-10 Semis

Connecticut 77, Temple 62 F     AAC Semis

Kentucky 93, Georgia 80 F         SEC Semis

Michigan St. 64, Maryland 61 F  B1G Semis

VCU 76, Davidson 54 F                A-10 Semis

Memphis 74, Tulane 54 F            AAC Semis

Fresno St. 68, San Diego St. 63 F  MWC Champ.

Steve Fisher and SDSU may have just cost Michigan a berth to the NCAA Tourmanent with a loss tonight. Going to be a long 24 hours.

St. Bonaventure lost in OT.

 

We are on CBS today, not sure we have won a game they telecast, though last one at MD was close.

I will go out on a limb, and say that Walton gets at least one bucket today.

Apparently, Nik has been coming on for Philly in the second half of the season. Check out this ridiculous move against the Nets tonight, an alley-oop to himself:

    In respect to Cam and Mo making huge contributions today I was thinking I remember us having several players doing this under Coach B. Mcgary and JMo both hit strides around tourney time. Does anyone else remember other players emerging for us late into season?

    I would like to see Mo get some serious minutes going forward after watching Donnal wilt at the end of this game. Also it seems like MAAR is our MVP this year? He has no glaring weaknesses in his game and rarely has any moments that make you cringe. We just cant say that about anyone else.

    Im just going to throw it out there but if Caris or Spike started feeling really good and we made a deeep run nothing is stopping them from filling in for Dakich minutes right? Just a terribly optomistic thought.

how the F does Lunardi *still* have a 19-13 SEC team with zero good nonconference wins in over M?

Add St. Mary's and its zero nonconf road wins & and Syracuse at 19-13 with a 9-10 conf record losing 4 of last 5. https://t.co/sUg9kniccb

St Mary's is in the WCC. They played one noncon game against a team better than 89th in Kenpom, and lost that game.

That is all...
