Duncan Robinson went 1-4 on threes vs NW and most of them were open looks. Duncan played 21 minutes and Dawkins played 19. But what was suprising was when the game was really close at the end, Dawkins was playing and Robinson was on the bench. Is Dawkins going to start playing more?
So No. 5 Xavier just beat No. 1 Villanova. This only helps Michigan: we lost to a team that is now gunning for a number 1 seed in the NCAA tourney. I realize that Michigan could have had a "harder" non-conference schedule, but cumong . . . if you are playing a number one seed in the non-conference part of the season, that's pretty significant.
Well that was stressful and unnecessary but I'll take it and we all deserve points for that.
Important game for the guys, a much needed win, let's hope they show up ready.
LeVert again won't play, sadly.

Advancing to the final 4 guarantees a minimum of $15K to Chad Tough Foundation, all leading up to the grand prize of $100K for final winner.
Edited to fix my misunderstanding of how the $ payout works!
SVG and the Pistons were obviously not enthralled with the results of the medical exam. Trade voided, and the draft pick and Joel Anthony are back with the Pistons.
While disappointing on one level, it's good to see that SVG did his due diligence and exercised his option to void what looks like a trade for a player with a wonkier back than hoped.
