Honestly, you could put Teske, Matthews, Poole, Livers, and Eli Brooks up against the coaches' third team, and I'd like Michigan's chances.  I don't think it would be a high-scoring game, but PG is the only position that I'd be confident the All Big Ten team would have an advantage.

Teske for sure, he was a difference maker all year.  Matthews had some brutal stretches but was a solid defensive presence.  Poole, quite frankly, can hopefully use this as motivation to improve the many holes in his game.  He's fun to watch, but he's pretty much "just a shooter" at this point.  (Queue the guy who's about to show me his and-1 transition dunk)

Yep, not a great finish but I’m over that.  Hope we get Sparty again in the B1G tourney.  Not gunna lie, glad we got the prime time game Friday.  Go Blue!

As disappointing as the end of the regular season has been, it's important to keep things in perspective. Before the season started I never would have expected all of the success that this team has had. Having said that I'm still so excited to see what they can do in the tournaments. Go blue!
