Michigan Basketball vs. Florida Game 4 Tournament Open Thread

Early? Probably. But the other three were too and between this and the front page Liveblog I want to keep the karma good. This is what it's all about; getting to the Final Four. We haven't had it handed to us at all, so we have to go out and take it. Three down, three to go. Let's do this. Go Blue!

The point about Florida being a 3-point shooting team is a good one. Still, not sure we could have dreamed a much better first half. Just keep the energy up for the next 20 minutes and remember no lead is completely safe.

The only time Florida ever made little runs was when our starting 5 wasn't in.  I hope Coach B manages his substitution patterns well in the 2nd half.

Exactly. We have managed to have a 17 point lead with Mitch having just a couple of steals since the first TV timeout. If he comes out and dominates to start the second half, we should be able to extend this further.

Let's See what halftime adjustments they make.  Beilein adjusts vs Donovan adjusts.  Not sure what adjustments Beilein should make at this point...lol.

I'm still wanting to know why we didn't slow it down the last 2 minutes or so.  If we had waited to shoot until 10 secs left or so, even had we missed and not rebounded, Florida would've only had time to score a few baskets.

Weird that 17 points with 20 min of basketball left isn't really that big of a lead.  Especially that we came back from 14 down with half that amount of time.

Our team needs to remember that just yesterday Wichita St almost choked away a 20 point lead to a team way more offensively impaired than Florida is. If Florida gets hot and gets the momentum, they'll be right in this one

In this first half it seems that our whole season is culminating in our ability to score and finally D a team up. 20 minutes still left.  Need to get THJ going

I almost can't stand this...my heart is in my throat.  I sucessfully swayed said cousins with peanut butter pie and the threat of my fists.  My wife is not happy with me...neither is their dad.  Lets go blue!!!!

We are shooting 51%, FLA is shooting 41%.  (it was something like 61% to 21% halfway throught).  FG% has started to even out.

BUT, we are winning these stats, and this is much more important:

Rebounds, 21-13

Assists, 11-6

Blocks, 4-1

That is team play and energy right there!
