Coach Yaklich

Seriously the most underappreciated part of this team. Throw the money cannon at him. We need to hold onto him. He is the Don Brown that perfectly complements Coach Beilein. One heck of a defensive performance alongside an offensive onslaught. Let's go blue!

But...they used 35 possessions in first half and around 33 in second half. I had them at 29 at the last media timeout and stopped counting. Impressive 1.05ppp

totally agree...

but also credit Haynes and Washington too...Haynes is in charge of coaching up the gaurds and Z and MAAR have been absolutely lights out, while Washington coaches up the bigs... and Mo, Matthews, Robinson have also been fantastic.

Michigan should lock up these asst coaches for the next 3 year imo

is Duncan Robinson. That guy was soft as Charmin and could not guard anyone with a pulse.

He's now a very good defensive player. Duncan Robinson. 

I don't think I've ever seen such a tranformation on that end of the floor - especially an upperclassman.

Credit goes to coaching and to the players - well done!

We won the first two with D.  We won the 3rd with O (and D).  The D has been there EVERY game over this 12 game win streak.  How do we play?  HARD.  What do we play? DEFENSE.  Because we want to be? CHAMPIONS

Actually I'd say the other two assistants, Saddi Washington and DeAndre Haynes, are the most underappreciated. Yaklich has been getting a ton of (deserved) love all season.

Loved how the announcers seemed surprised that Michigan came out in a man2man defense tonight. Were they expecting a zone because we really don't do that? But, they certainly saw and then complimented the great defense by all the guys tonight. Loved the effort, loved the solid rebounding and then pushing the ball up the court for good looks before their defense got set. What a game!
