Michigan Basketball vs. MSU Open Thread

Submitted by M-Wolverine on March 3rd, 2013 at 3:14 PM
What else do you want to talk about?!? Huge game where somebody's season hits rock bottom. Michigan's slide continues and the season series vs. the Spartans is lost, or MSU loses 3 in a row and is out of the B1G race, and, well, loses to Michigan. Can't get much bigger without a title on the line. The road to a long Tourney run starts here. Go Blue!

I liked what I saw as far as effort and intensity in the first half.  If the random breaks balance out in the 2nd, we should be ok.  Oh yeah, and repeat along with me, "I believe the 3's will start falling soon.  I believe the 3's will start falling soon.  I believe the 3's..."

We were 0-6 on threes, getting out-rebounded 21-13, and are only down 3? Sorry I missed the first half because I can't imagine how  we're this close.

Loving the energy by LeVert out there. GRIII has flashed some great play, would love to see him keep up some of that intensity on the boards. I think if we keep it up in the paint, the 3's will come. And obviously, lets check Payne a little closer guys.

If we are going to give up 50%+ on threes, I don't understand why we don't play more zone. At least we would be able to stop all these lay ups and get some defensive rebounds. If you are going to be bad at defense, at least be bad at one thing (3 point shooting), not bad at everything.

I think the fact that Levert is being pushed into the starting lineup is a blessing in disguise. Really like the athleticism he adds and the fearless way he plays.
