Michigan moved to 9-0 with an 80-67 victory over Arkansas on Saturday afternoon. The Wolverines were in cruise control in the first half but allowed the Razorbacks to claw back into the game with an early second half run. Michigan’s win hinged on dominant offensive rebounding and a balanced attack that saw all five starters reach double figures. Here’s your post-game discussion thread, full coverage to follow.

    Can’t decide who’s face is funnier in that photo, McGary or Hardaway

    I think it’s safe to say that Spike was a good get. He had no trouble bringing up against the press (remember the heart attacks Eso would cause) and made some good plays. Shouldn’t have any problems being a solid backup even against the Big 10 schedule.

      Every time Spike brings the ball up against pressure, his man is all over him, and I think he’s going to get picked. Every time, he doesn’t get picked, and sometimes, he creates a scoring opportunity. I agree; Spike was a very good get. Spike will help to make the eventual transition from Burke to Walton a smooth one.

        Not to mention how nice it will be to have Burke better rested at the end of the year.

    Love watching this team and Beilein made some good lineup adjustments as Arkansas adjusted pressure. Can’t wait to start Big Ten play.

  • Mark Worthley

    The Spartans are sucking it up right now against Loyola, IL. I can’t wait for our two games against them.

    was at the game…by far the loudest part of the game was the booing at the end for the burke tech (which I thought was a very soft call). Also, GRIII with 17 points somehow…

    That’s 2 double-doubles for Morgan this season. I think he only recorded one last season (Ohio State). Hopefully he can continue to be that efficient.

    Great game. Very balanced scoring attack. Great to see us dominate the boards!
