Michigan #16 in Kenpom as of this Moment

It's definitely being updated in real time, because I checked this morning and we were 30-something, then 17th about an hour after the game, and now 16th. 

Not that this matters a ton, other than for perception, but we have GOT to be ranked in both polls come Monday, right? 2-1 with a win over #4, and a 1-point loss to the #5 team that was, let's be honest, an epic butt-pounding, right?

Another stunning fact: Michigan is #29 in RPI, MSU is #30. And there isn't much separating the resumes either. I'm not sure why Michigan is viewed as an 8/9 seed and MSU a 2/3 right now. MSU has wins over two tournament teams, UNC (neutral) and ND at home. Michigan has wins over UCLA, Texas (road) and MSU (road).

Great win, and like the move up on the Kenpom board, but Michigan has a quick turnaround game Monday night at home against Maryland.  Maryland has won 5 of the last 6 in the series.

In SOS news:

-Texas (11-5) is currently beating OKSU on the road, on ESPNews

-UNC (13-4) is tied with ND in the first half, on ESPN.  

-LSU (11-4) hosts Bama this evening.

-UCLA (13-4) hosts Colorado.

Hopefully these teams can sweep today and give us a small boost.

EDIT: Texas absolutely choked that away.  They had a 12-point lead midway through the second half.  Ugh.

Purdue hit almost 60% of their threes and they were lucky to beat us. Against MSU, I think I read somewhere that we made one three-pointer in the second half, yet we still won by 10 points. This is a well-rounded team right now and if we get hot in March, we can hang with anyone.
