Michigan at halftime shooting 60% with one turnover and causing Villanova to turn the ball over 10 times. The swarming defense looks fantastic.

We not only have the best defensive coach in football, but also hoops. I hope they can convince Yaklich to stay and eventually take over for Coach B.

Luke Yaklich is the Don Brown of Basketball. Absolutely suffocating on defense, the execution is fantastic. I don't know if an assistant has had more of an impact on a basketball team than Yaklich has.

I've come to expect these sort of halves from young Beilein teams in the early season and I don't get upset by them... I'm not sure how to react when UM is the team on that end of the score...

Bradzekis acting like a sophomore passing up an openish look and wanting to bang down by the hoop for an and-1.  Love it!

 

Love seeing Zavier go after that punk Gillespie.  He does something good, Zavier goes right back at him to put him in his place.

If we can keep this sort of smothering defense, I think this season will have its fair share of easy viewing. That said, early in the season yet, but I am really liking what I see so far...

My complaint with UM basketball has always been that they are soft. This team...  This team is NOT soft. The football team is mean, the basketball team is hard....  It’s great to be a Michigan Wolverine!

Still mad at the one ref in the NCG that kept bailing out Nova with weak calls.  They let Nova hacks badly.  Completely turned the game around in the 1st half.
