Michigan has not trailed in the last 3+ games

Just looked and noticed that Michigan has not trailed in a game since 7-6 in the 1st half against Penn State. They took the lead in that game at the 12:15 mark and have not trailed since. They have led for the last 152:15 of game action. Incredible!

That is correct.  Michigan trailed by a total of 1:43 seconds in the second half of the game at Northwestern.

In fact, Michigan has only trailed for a total of 4 minutes 46 seconds out of 340 total second half minutes played this season.  That is a bit mind blowing. 

What is the only other game in which Michigan has trailed in the second half this year?

I pray Duke is on the other side of the bracket. If we have to see them in the finals so be it. Anyone else in the country I won’t be too worried about

I'm still waiting for Coach Beilein to call me for advice on how to play the Badgers on Saturday. If he does call, however, I will tell him to allow Teske to haunt the 3-point line and put up several from out there, hopefully hitting a few. That should bring 6'-10"  Ethan Happ out from his comfort zone (within 10-15' of the hoop), and provide driving  lanes for Charles, Xavier et al. Because I'm sure neither Coach Beilein nor his staff has considered this plan, my suggestion should come as welcome news. 

Anyway, I'm still smarting from my trip to the Trohl Center in 2013 when the accursed Ben Brust hit that mid-court prayer against then-unbeaten M to send the game into OT and an eventual Badger victory. But that Badger team had NBA draftees (Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker, and maybe others). This year's team doesn't appear nearly as loaded (Happ should be drafted, but who else?). The Badgers will give M a game, but M will out-talent 'em.
