Didn't see any of these up already so here it is. Looking for the Morris, Morgan, and Hardaway trio to continue their good play tonight

7:02- first reference to Darius Morris as "the butterfly". Tipoff still hasn't happened yet.

In all seriousness, though, it sounds like NCC has been flying all over the country recently and should be pretty tired. I look for M to get off to a pretty fast start. Go Blue!

apparently is the name that BTN is trying to assign to our team. Which is awful- obviously "Baby Blue and the Butterflies" is a much catchier name.

7-7 so far, we've alternated good defensive stands with giving up wide-open layups. Typical Michigan D.

Hardaway found Morgan for a slam, then Morris found Hardaway in the same spot next posession- Tim Jr. took it up and tried to throw it down as if to say "I can dunk too!" He got fouled and ended up barely catching rim. Should have laid it in for the and-one. Something he'll learn as he gets older, hopefully.

2nd TV timeout. We are missing open 3s, (and by we I mean Stu) and they are just throwing up prayers every possession they have. Interesting note- for a tired team, they're full-court pressing after makes.

So far we look pretty "meh" against a "meh" team.  And we're getting beaten badly on the boards even though we're as big or bigger than they are.  Way bigger at the guard spots.

1 for 12 three-point shooting. Nothing's been contested, we've gotten offensive boards... we just can't hit anything. Thank god they have more offensive fouls than baskets.
