Meh, we've played like garbage while they are busy shooting the lights out from 3. I'm not really worrying at all going into the second half.

Either leave a coherent comment about the game ("BTFU", "fuck you guys", ect. don't count) or don't comment on the game thread. I wouldn't let a newly signed up Buckeye or Sparty do this, and I'm not about to let this thread get filled up with trolling Purdue comments.

I'll repeat: say something insightful or informative about the game or stop posting on this thread. This will be the last warning you get.

Here's what it looks like at halftime - 

Purdue FG% - 43.3% (13-30)

Michigan FG% - 44.8% (13-29)

Purdue 3PT% - 53.3% (7-13)

Michigan 3PT% - 30% (3-10)

Purdue has made no FTs, but we're 3-4 in that department.

Otherwise, we've actually outrebounded them overall (both  offensive and defensive) and committed a third as many fouls.

This is what frustrates me about basketball.  You can play fine D (not that we neccsarily are at the moment) and a team can jack up 3's with a guy who normally shoots 12% on the year and, bam, today he's making them.  Or you can set up a great play, get a great look, and bam, you get nothing.  Hell, maybe the ball bounces half way across the court giving the other team an easy basket.  It's like running a perfectly executed run play in football, having your RB run into the open field, except he falls down and fumbles the ball 40% of the time.

Purdue did this against MSU too. They hung with them for about 30 minutes of the game and then MSU blew them out. I expect the same to happen here. Purdue will eventually run out of gas.

Don't understand why everyone is freaking out, Purdue just played completely above their potential and we are only down by one at the half. We got this.

We'll be fine in this one gents and ladies.  Byrd will come back to planet earth where he's a mere mediocre mortal and our turnovers will decrease (I bet we have 5 tops in the 2nd half).

Though my prediction of another 90+ point game isn't likely.
