Miss anything?

I still think I'm going to watch this "Road To The Championship" ESPN 30 minute special on Michigan.

Has anyone seen it? It's been sitting on my DVR for a couple of days.

Am I crazy in thinking that we have a better matchup vs Louisville than Wichita State? Louisville seems to want to run the ball every time and we always seem to destroy teams that want to increase the # of possessions.

As annoying as the officiating can be during Big Ten games, this is even worse.  Everything's a foul.  This game has no rhythm.

Wichita is shooting themselves in the foot after every Louisville basket. The longer they wait to get an inbounder behind the line, and the longer that guy takes to find and/or pick up the ball, the longer Louisville has to set up the press. 

This is maddeningly simple stuff. Get your transition game going, get the ball in play, get the ball over midcourt. Come on.

Wichita is losing its composure.  Louisville's press is good but WSU is making them look better than they are with some really dumb turnovers.   They're also settling way too much for outside shots when UL is in the double-bonus.

Can a player bean Pitino with the ball when he is on the court?  or make a bounce pass off his head?  Might help to break the press.

After being in the double-bonus 10 minutes, it finally occurs to the Shockers to go right at their big men in foul trouble.
