Significance of winning next two games for MBB

Submitted by BlizzardOfOz on March 2nd, 2014 at 1:38 PM

Obviously we need one more win to secure the outright regular season title.

I was looking at the last two games and realized that Illinois and Indiana represent the only two teams in the conference that we have not won against this year.

I was wondering how significant it would be if we win out. How rare is it in the BIG overall and for Michigan (specifically) to beat every team within the conference in a single season.

Discuss.......

Go Blue!!!

I think there's something to building momentum and that 'toughness' needed to compete in the tournament. I just don't want us to lollygag into the opening weekend and get bounced because we had a few light games in a row

I think winning the last 2 regular season games are big.  A lot of the top 10-15 teams in the current AP poll still have tough games remaining this coming week.  15-3 conference record and getting to the conference tourney finals, if not semi's, might get UM a #2 seed depending on what happens with other teams.

These games will be the toughest because both Iilni and IU want to win to spoil everything. Don't assume we win both. Our guys are going to play very hard. Go Blue.
