Beilein was wrong about the charge, but he was right about the 2 travels… Either way there’s nothing better than watching players push their coach around the floor to keep him from getting another T.

Fought hard boys… Not bad. Make a showing of it in the B1G Tourney.

Geoff, we always get the call on national TV! That’s because of our strong fan base. Since you are capable of identifying the correctness of calls, what do you think of the call at Assemly Hall at the end of the Kentucky (the GREAT WIN FOR IT) where Watford blatantly pushes a guy in the back on a play where, had the Kentucky guy scored the lay-up, we would have lost the game? Do you think that should have been a Flagrant 1 or Flagrant 2?

Showed some grit coming back. But that’s the second straight game an opponent drilled a back-breaking 3 with the game on the line. Tough break. Michigan closing with 12 straight FTs didn’t help, either. They took care of what they had to take care of.

We played pretty well for the most part, except for that brutal stretch in the second half where we got way too careless. This was maybe Yogi’s best passing day of the B1G season, and we’ve come to expect those moments when he leaves his feet with nowhere to go, but he was also uncharacteristically shaky with his dribble a few times (and a blown wide-open layup he could hit 99 times out if 100… Blindfolded and upside down…) Gordon has taken over Hollowell’s role as my most feared man on the court. Just like JH earlier in the year, I now consider it a win if he touches the ball and something bad doesn’t happen. Anything positive is just a bonus.

As for JH, he’s still a work in progress. He’s not a TO machine anymore, but when he’s not involving himself in the offense he can be a serious liability. How many times over the last couple of games has he had some very costly blown defensive assignments and switches?

Davis has shown that not all hope is lost if Noah goes pro. I think HMP will have his moments next year, but DD will be the one we can rely on more consistently. If only he had a few extra inches on him…

Very positive sign with Stan hitting all his FTs. He now steps to the line looking like he expects to make it– a far cry from just a few weeks ago when he looked like he just hoped one would go in.

Overall still proud of our boys today. We played hard and didn’t give up when it looked like it UM was about to run away with it. Ann Arbor’s a tough place to play and we made them sweat it out. That’s about as encouraging a loss as we could expect heading into the tourney.

Except for the middle of the game, we played very well. Once again, this team demonstrated it can play with the best when its really energized plus moving the ball and their bodies around throughout the game.

If they concentrate more on making good passes, eliminate the soft lobs or over the head passing, finish their layups, and always communicate with each other on defense for forty minutes every game, they could still win the Big Ten Tournament. Difficult to do! Yes! But not impossible. So I hope they’ll put this game behind them and play four solid and consistent games. If they do, they will make the impossible possible.

Whoops! “Except for the middle of the second half,…”
