I said to a friend early in the game when we weren't up by much that I would only feel comfortable against VCU if we were up by 30 with 5 minutes to go. So proud of our guys for bringing that to fruition!

My second favorite player of this game behind McGary. He wasnt the second best player but what a great ball handler to have in there against a defense like VCU. Not sure why VCU never seemed to double team Spike?

I thought our coaching staff sucked at coaching defense?

I thought this team was just mediocre and not worth the time to watch?



I thought they were a collection of pathetic losers, chokers and quitters?  "All of that talent and nothing to show for it."



I thought GRIII was a spoiled brat who could care less?

I can't remember another game all season where they played great in both halves. And Zoltanrules' prediction in the start of the open thread about spike, mcgary, and gr3 was almost scary accurate

But I have an MGoVideo request.

Is there ANY WAY someone can upload video of the game from Spike's 3 in the 2nd half to THJ's rock the cradle dunk?

It was about 4 minutes of Michigan Basketball and I'd love to watch it forever.

I was very confident about this one.  I loved that we drew VCU in the tourney.  Not only were they the perfect matchup for us (a smallish team that is dependent on forcing turnovers and likes to play fast), but the media all stupidly jumped on their bandwagon and gave us a ton of bulletin-board material.  Don't count out a Beilein team in the tourney.
