Tarheels take down 'Zags!

And it wasn't close! 

Sure, it was on UNC's home floor, but this really puts the UM win in perspective. NC is a *tough* team, and to handle another tough team in Gonzaga the way they did. Combine that with 'Nova taking Kansas down to the wire today in Lawrence, and it's probably time to start thinking Michigan may actually be the best team in the country. 

Obviously, the "Transitive property of basketball" doesn't exist, but the evidence is piling up.

Went to the game today which was my first in Crisler Center. I found the in game atmosphere to be awful compared to say a NBA game. Is there rules against showing things on the Jumbotron to try and get the crowd into the game in college arenas? I get it wasn’t a huge game, but it seems like some stuff on the Tron would help keep the fans interested.

(Believe in Beilein)

Nothing in here about the Basketball team. Not worried at all about the game Saturday against W. Michigan as Beilein has the team smoking hot and working well. Same for Binghampton. But that gets followed the 6th of Jan. with Indiana, and that will be a tough one. The Hoosiers are cranking out the wins too

Any thoughts about the roundballers you would like to share like to share?

OT: 35 Yrs Ago Today - Most Pts Ever in NBA Game, Detroit 186 v Denver 184

Had forgotten about this game in the start of the Bad Boys era.  On 12/13/83, the Pistons defeated the Nuggets 186-184 in triple OT, and the 370 combined points is still the most ever in a single NBA game.  A few crazy stats:

1) Both teams were only 1-2 (or 2-4) combined from the 3-pt line, which had only went into play in the NBA starting in 1979.  The distance is the same as today.

Villanova about to go down to Penn.  Not the pedos, the Ivy leaguers.  They actually just had a last shot to tie it with 1 second left...but a tough shot missed.  So down the go again (although Furman looks tough).

 

To add a conversation piece on a slow sports night (more of a legal and litigious night!)....ESPN just aired the Bobby Knight 30 for 30.  What a y'alls opinion on ehat happened back in 2000 and his removal/firing from Indiana and thoughts on his legacy.  I grew up with him as IU coach and know/remember what went down but....what say you?!
