about the fact that the pace is being played to Michigan favor. I'd look for Memphis to go all-out on defense the second-half. Sorta like Nolan Richard's heat...

Michigan is playing much better team, passing ball. Memphis is too sloppy with all these hoopers playing for themselves only. Really like how Belein has shaped this team.

We should not take another shot with more than 10 ticks left on the shot clock for the rest of the game. Milk some clock and limit Memphis running the floor.

Unless its for wide open, silky smooth looks like that. Akunne sweetness.

Dude is playing great. If him and Morgan can be somewhat equally effective they are much more dangerous. It allows each of them to gamble with fouls and play aggressive.

Don't look now, but it looks like Michigan can keep pulling away. If Muppets were warranted after the football team beat Illinois, we may have to consider using them here...

I had the chance to watch Eso once when he was in high school (at Gabriel Richard HS).  He was a superstar at that level, but he was more of a frontcourt player.  In college he's had to learn to play on the perimeter and it's taken him a little while to get used to that, but he has some natural talent.  He could be a decent role player.
