Puerto Rico Tip-Off Updated Bracket

Submitted by Wolverine Devotee on November 21st, 2013 at 3:59 PM

So both games were upsets in session 1 of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

Northeastern knocked off Georgetown and UNC-Charlotte beat Kansas State. 

If Michigan wins tonight, they could face VCU which would be the only "watchable" game of the tournament to outsiders.

In other early season tourney news, Nebraska was beaten by UMass 96-90.

A decent overall game coming off a loss, really... we had some lulls, need to go inside more, find McGary (though part of that I expect is his mssing so much practice, they're not used to him yet.)  Stauskas and LeVert have obviously improved a lot, if we can just get McGary blended back into the offense and some better decision making out of Walton - and I think we will as he gets experience - we'll be tough to beat.  Gonna take time for this team to reach potential I think, but the ceiling is still pretty high.

Exactly.

Championships are not won in November.

If we can make it out of the non-conference portion of the schedule with 2-3 losses we will be fine. This team will get better as the season goes on and we want it to be at its peak in March (and hopefully April).

Dan Dakich recap: (1) McGary is the biggest person in the world. (2) Max has the biggest calves in the country. (3) JMo is the best hedger in the country, and is in a race with Aaron Craft for B1G Defensive POY. (4) Coach B did the best coaching job he's every witnessed. (5) Andrew Dakich is the best leader he's ever been around in his life .... Did I miss any? [I'd say Dan Dakich is happy Coach B gave his son a spot on the squad]

That stauskus and mcgary stay healthy. Despite the pub, staukus is this teams most important player. And I see little out of horford and morgan. Walton struggled too. I hope we beat vcu but I bet we don't.

That's a really pathetic mentality. 

Freshman PGs don't typically come in and become Trey Burke in November. 

McGary is still banged up. Zak Irvin is going to be a monster. Remember how raw THJ was in November 2010?
