Favorite Michigan-OSU Basketball Moments

Favorite Michigan-OSU Basketball Moments

In preperation of the Michigan  -  OSU game let us reminisce about our favorite moments in this rivalry on the hardwood.  I am not going to go back very far in time... for me it was last years game.  Any game that features OSU losing, and Spike out playing a lottery pick is good enough for me.  Also enjoyed when in the second half  OSU couldn't stop spike so they tried to deny him the ball.  Great moment

UM Basketball Remaining Schedule Predictions

UM Basketball Remaining Schedule Predictions

Submitted by SharkyRVA on February 14th, 2016 at 2:10 PM

Thoughts for a slow Sunday.

With the end of the Big Ten season upon us, I thought I would revisit my predictions from an October 1st thread.  UM has 5 games remaining and has gotten themselves in position for an invite to March Madness.  How do you feel about the next 5 games and how many B1G wins will we get?

My predictions below were from October which had UM getting 11 wins.  

at Illinois * W
vs. Penn State * W
at Purdue * L
vs. Maryland * L  
at Iowa * L
vs. Minnesota * W
at Nebraska * W
vs. Rutgers * W
vs. Penn State * W
vs. Indiana * W
vs. Michigan State * L
at Minnesota * W
vs. Purdue * L
at Ohio State * W
at Maryland * L
vs. Northwestern * W
at Wisconsin * L
vs. Iowa * W

I am sticking with my 11 win projection with just a few edits...

UM was able to beat MD and Purdue which I had as losses but lost to Indiana and the end of year Iowa game looks a lot tougher than I thought in October.   My final 5 game prediction is now:

at Ohio State * W
at Maryland * L
vs. Northwestern * W
at Wisconsin * L
vs. Iowa * L

This gets us to 11 B1G wins and 21 total wins.  With no bad losses and wins over MD and Purdue, we should be a tourney team.  What say you?

**LeVert's return may help us steal another win or two assuming he can get back into the flow.

Not the actual team, their ranking. Before this Indiana game, they are ranked 8th in the nation and also 8th in the B10. Also, let's make this into a B10 tournament seed prediction thread. After yesterday's win, I'm calling a 4 seed for Michigan in the B10 tourney. Does yesterday's game change anyone's opinion on where the team ends the season?

MOD EDIT - Better title, folks? - LSA

For those who watched it or missed this game  it is worth watching again. Great win and big boast to their tourney resume. I didnt realize it until this morning that we actually outrebounded Purdue 39-35. Great hustle against a much bigger team. Final 5 games are huge. Enjoy!

At least he's making the effort to come back even after the ban. 

Interesting. Seems he's been welcomed back with open arms by the coaches at least.
