    Nice bucket by Stu, we need him to shoot a better percentage.

  • MGoTweeter

    wow dont understand that, could have fouled plumlee

  • sshow

    I would love to see us post Hardway more often. Teams are going to have to double him soon.

  • MGoTweeter

    could have used more of that in the first half Tim

  • Mikebainbridge20

  • Mattski

    Smotrycz! Dag nasty!

  • Mikebainbridge20

    terrible game for Smotz

  • Jaisdaddy1

    Hardaway!!!

    Finally the announcers mention the crap that Rivers has been doing the whole game…talking s!@?

  • sshow

    Bullsh#T! I hate Duke!

  • Mattski

    Okay, Rivers too. Funny, cause I love his dad.

  • MGoTweeter

    that’s a tough call, but Novak has to be smarter.  Just let him have the layup

  • Mikebainbridge20

    Proud of the way they played today…2 out of 3 at Maui is great in my book if we get it

  • MGoTweeter

    well, just did not have it in the first half.  Love that the team kept battling and made a game out of this.  No reason UM cannot come out and control a game against UCLA tomorrow

  • Mikebainbridge20

    our bench did not play a lot…hope we are not tired tomorrow

  • Wayman Britt

    Tough lost, but UM is for real this season.

  • M C

    We just gotta PRAY that UCLA loses….if by some strange chance UCLA knocks off Kansas, I don’t like our matchup with the Jayhawks….if we can beat UCLA, I’ll take a 3rd place finish with the teams that were in the field in Maui! Go Blue!

  • A2JD

    Ah, Kansas has the same warm up shirts as we do.  ADIDAS is becoming a Nike Tyrant.

    Hate losing to Duke, but I saw a lot of good things in the second half. Burke is the real deal. I think we’re going to be very good this season. Definitely was not thinking that 3 days ago.

  • DingoBlue

    Tough loss, but I can accept it.  Trey Burke – 9 assists, wow.

  • Joel C

    Great, great 2nd half, just gotta start better. This invitational has still exceeded my expectations so far, just gotta beat (probably) UCLA. If d00k shoots even 50% from 3, which is still very good, I think we win. I hope we get another shot at them in the tourney.

    • Joel C

      Oops, just saw that they actually finished at 52%….but really though, just 1 missed 3 might’ve made the difference.
