Incredible shooting performance brings us through to the round of 32!  Walton will not be denied!

Hollis is an incompetent ass.

Oklahoma State would have finished top 3-4 in the Big Ten.   They were 5-6 seed quality, as were we.  Both teams were top 25 quality teams. 

Us being a #7 seed was silly.  Them being a #10 seed was ridiculous.   This is probably the worst seeded tournament I've ever seen in my life.

10-7 matchup?

Either one of those teams could make the Final 4. Great game between two well-coached teams. This was the antidote I was looking for after watching Florida State-FGCU last night, which was 40 minutes of unmitigated street ball.

I've only seen it once, in the NBA playoffs, I believe it was the Celtics, where a team started fouling them to try and chip away at the lead, and the Celtics fouled them right back. After about 3-4 turns of free throws for both teams their opponent gave up and let Boston dribble out the clock. 

 

Why don't more teams do this? Why leave the door open and give the other team a chance to come back?

What I like most is winning a really tight game.  That helps a team's maturity.  It would have made the difference last year against ND.  Let's hope it makes the difference for 5 more games this year.

if that game was 5 seconds longer, Oklahoma State would've won.  

They were legit and played hard and refused to die.  And our boys still prevailed.  What a victory for M! GO BLUE!

 i didn't mean it negatively or as an insult I meant that the way the game was going and the way they played at the end, Michigan was lucky to escape with the win.  they made Michigan sweat it out at the line and immediately made us pay for missed FTs.  Oklahoma State was tough as nails, man. they refused to die.
