Afternoon game thread

Not sure if a thread for the afternoon of games is worthwhile, but I'm bored.

Kentucky - Seton Hall was an incredibly entertaining game.  Myles Powell of SH lit it up from everywhere in the 2H.

Indiana - Louisville up next.  And others.

Other than Poole, seeing any great performances elsewhere today?

I didn’t watch the tape of the NW game. I saw it live so from memory.... The game was almost lost when Simpson went on a stretch of missed threes and two missed alley oops that almost cost his team the game. He was pulled and Eli brought us over the finish line. 

 

Points:

zavier can make three pointers.

Will Iggy’s role as a starter/contributor immediately begin to help our recruiting? I know the big knock for top talent is that every player has to wait their turn and learn the system no matter how talented (McGary only really got going in the trounament at the end of the year). Top talent definitely would slot nicely into Beileins system, especially ones with the athelticism to defend and shoot the three. Will this development help us finally start getting elite basketball recruits?

Before you ask: Yes, Murderwolf is still a thing. In fact, it has always been a thing.

As we transition fully to basketball season, the official sport of the University of Michigan, it's time for some new wallpaper. Murderwolf was a fun side-story to the football season and I see no reason why it can't help the basketball team. After all, Michigan has lost one game total among both sports since the Murderwolf showed up.

I'm looking for an article or a spreadsheet that I'm almost positive I saw on this site during the tourney run last year.  It ranked each active coach based on their actual tournament wins vs. their expected wins based on seeding.  I have done several different searches on this site, and multiple searches of the broader internet, and for the life of me I cannot find what I'm looking for.  The closest thing I came across was an article that gave historical win percentages by for each seed number, and then a ranking of total conferences on actual vs.
