Michigan heads back to New York City for a reunion with John Beilein’s former team, West Virginia, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Bill Raftery and Jon Sciambi will be on the call for ESPN with tip off scheduled for 8 p.m. The largest pre-game news is that Aaric Murray, who averages 9 points and seven rebounds per game, did not make the trip to Brooklyn with West Virginia. Join in the discussion before, during and after the game in the comments section below.

    The Nikki and Burke Show

  • JDR

    In two years, Stauskas is gonna be an absolute monster.

    Burke’s game reminds me of Andre Miller, who loves that bank shot too. also, the savvy

  • Mattski

    Breathtaking play by Trey.

    • JDR

      He’s just toying with these guys. Who do you think will give him a real challenge first? Craft maybe? Anybody else?

      • MGoTweeter

        Appling and that guy from minny

  • MGoTweeter

    Apparently wva players were asleep during the scouting report. Letting Burke do whatever he wants

  • eddieben

    Any update on beilfeldt’s expected return?

    • MGoTweeter

      I saw beilein talking to him after horford got hurt. Looked like he sai get ready but who knows

    • Wayman Britt

      Hope his ankle is better, we might need him if Horford is out for any length of time.

      He’s dressed but there’s been no formal update.

  • MGoTweeter

    Kstate hanging tough with Gonzaga early

    Man I wish they would bring back an NCAA BBall video game so I could play with this squad!

    • Retiredat23

      Amen brother

    Trey Burke is something special. Gotta just sit back and enjoy him this season.

    • MGoTweeter

      Unfortunately only for the rest of this season

    • JDR

      …he can’t go pro in the middle of the season, can he? The way he’s playing, I’m worried that they’ll make an exception for him.

    • Wayman Britt

      Can’t wait for his battle with Craft. Craft might have got the better of him last year, this year who knows.

  • MGoTweeter

    Ok the refs are getting silly. Calling the game completely different depending on the end of the floor

  • MGoTweeter

    Wva has absolutely destroyed michigans zone looks tonight

  • Joel_C

    Getting a little bit nervous here…

    • Joel_C

      Nevermind :)

  • MGoTweeter

    Big possessions back when michigan was up 16 under 8 left and they took two straight quick threes

  • JDR

    Looks like teams play up to you when you’re #3 in the country.

    Stauskas and GRIII seem tired right now.

  • David

    35.3% from 3 -> normally 26.4%

    81.8% from the line -> normally 68.6%

    WV is just shooting above their average; otherwise, it’s a 15-20 point game.

  • Mattski

    Well, Timmy got his shot back tonight. And played very heady hoop throughout. Loved hearing Beilein talk about how he and Trey go at it one on one in practice. That has to be helping both of them, but especially Timmy. I don’t see these guys letting this get away.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mbainbridge2 Mike Bainbridge

    Is that a good sign that Horford on bench?

    • MGoTweeter

      Probably not. Not a bad sign either. Just that no reason for him to have it evaluated until they get back home

  • DB

    Wow, the refs have just completely taken over this game. Both ways.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mbainbridge2 Mike Bainbridge

    This bum in yelllow is trash talkin Stauskas. Wow. West Virginia townies for ya

  • http://www.facebook.com/mbainbridge2 Mike Bainbridge

    WIN

  • Mattski

    Would like to hear a comparable level of noise from Michigan fans to Arizona’s.

  • Joel_C

    Solid win, can’t wait for Big Ten play!
