That is all.

Zavier Simpson won't be a pro and his offensive numbers may not be as good, but he's one of the best defenders in the history of Michigan basketball.  That shows up in wins but not always the box score (even though he did have 5 steals tonight!!).

Z will also likely end up with one of the best, if not the best career winning percentages as a starting PG at Michigan.  In fact, I'd be curious to see where he compares now to Jalen Rose and Trey Burke and Derrick Walton.

The guy is an incredible leader, winner and absolute bulldog defender.

That is not all. Let’s give some credit to the players. Z, Teske and Matthews should be 1st team all-big 10 defense by season’s end. The rest of the players are doing their part and not giving anyone an open look. A coach is only as good as the players he has to work with. We definitely played like the more veteran team. After losing 3 guys from last season, that’s saying something.

Read the ESPN (I think?) thing on him the other day and he didn't want to admit how many hours he watches film per week.  Now I really want to know.  25?  40?  60?

Really, really impressive. I wish I had more time so I could write up a diary on what he did. But look at how we were playing their wings tonight. Contrast that to what is going on with Marquette vs. Romeo Langford right now. Look at the angles and positioning for our D on the wings, while the ball was still at the point, vs. the more traditional angles that Marquette is taking.
