Basketball Open Thread: NW at Michigan

Submitted by michfan4borw on January 11th, 2012 at 5:31 PM

(EDIT update: UM 66 NW 64 final; OT) Michigan looks to continue its success defending home court.  A win tonight would move Michigan into a tie with Illinois for second place in the conference.  Of course no game is guaranteed for the favored team (e.g. OSU losing again last night).  Game starts at 630 EST.  Current standings:



Michigan State 4-0 15-2
Illinois 4-1 15-3
Indiana 3-1 15-1
Michigan 3-1 13-3
Purdue 3-1 13-4
Ohio State 3-2 15-3
Iowa 2-3 10-8
Northwestern 1-2 11-4
Wisconsin 1-3 12-5
Penn State 1-3 9-8
Minnesota 0-4 12-5
Nebraska 0-4 8-7

I didn't think I'd say this before the game, but this would be a huge comeback win if we can pull it out.  Not that the win would be so great, but a loss at home to NW would be devastating going into the brutal stretch after the Iowa game.
