how cool would it be we actually make the dance by wining the tournament.  not that I expect us to go far in the tourny, but just salvaging the season by doing that would be huge for next year.

We'll be Champions

I think if he can come back tommorow, ease him into it because MAAR is really coming on, and to begin the Illionos game the chemistry and ball movement with this team was great. Don't start him because I think the guys on the floor are completely competent

I had thought that - at least earlier in the week - the outlook for Walton in the Big Ten Tournament was leaning towards the bleak side, but then you also have the quotes from a few sources that mention they've been taking this day-to-day, which sort of leads me to believe they may insert him for a limited time if they think he can handle it. Walton mentioned in an interview today, I believe, that they would not force it though - everyone would need to be on the same page for him to come into a game.

"Michigan G Derrick Walton Jr., sidelined since Jan. 24 because of a left toe/foot injury, said he will play against Wisconsin. Michigan considered having him return against Illinois but decided to wait at least another day. The sophomore is averaging 10.7 points."

How many thought we would reach the Championship game or have five draft picks in two years although admittedly that is probably correlated (although look at Flordia).

I think we are due to hit one of those half court buzzer beater shots against these guys.

Whatever I'm just happy they played well today and sad I missed it. I'm definitely going to try to catch the second half. If they can just keep it close they could steal it late.

Just keep doing your best men that's all any of us can do.

5 minutes of Walton at 75% is better than Dakich at 100% no disrespect to Andrew. I just feel an injured Walton could be at least as effective as Dakich while being an offensive threat.

I think we should take the Mike Tice "Randy Ratio" approach tomorrow.

Every 2.4 possessions Dawkins should shoot a 3 (Zak and Spike can be a part of that too)
