    Big time rebound by levert

  • MLaw

    What a rebound!

  • Marshall

    YEAH!

  • Rich74

    Just when you need a OR, Yippie

  • guestavo

    2nd day in a row LeVert gets a big rebound

  • mstein23

    Caris on the offensive glass again!

    • Wayman Britt

      That was a great effort and bound by Caris

  • jakelam2116

    Wow, Thompson fell asleep on that box-out.

  • MGoTweeter

    One more spike

  • Chezaroo

    They were dominating us with Craft on the bench. Thank God he didn’t foul out! Poetic justice is served. He elbowed Caris, charged JMo, barreling thru screens, knocking people over

  • MLaw

    Thank you Craft. The gift that keeps on giving.

  • guestavo

    What was that lol

  • Rich74

    Unbelievable!! Thanks Craft!!

  • Madrox

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  • Cory

    …….and that’s the last memory we’ll have of Aaron Craft.

    • Wayman Britt

      Good call

  • MGoTweeter

    Phew. Two of the ugliest wins of the season but all that matters is on to the championship game.

    • MLaw

      Tournaments are crazy. Crazy and stressful.

  • Wayman Britt

    Who wants a UM vs MSU final?

    • Cory

      5-0 combined vs. MSU and OSU sounds mighty fine.

    • jemblue

      I’m torn. Beating them again would be fantastic but losing would be irritating. Their fans would claim that the first two didn’t count because of injuries.

      • Chezaroo

        So true. They are drooling at potentially playing us again. GO BADGERS!

  • jakelam2116

    This team loves to win the close ones.

  • Madrox

    Gritty end to a Big Ten career there

  • mstein23

    Poetic justice there. #Craft

  • jemblue

    #2 seed is ours, I’m sure now. Win one more and get #1!

    • MLaw

      2 Seed is ours- good chance in the Midwest under the new rules. If we win, we could get #1 seed in NYC. Lose and get the #2 in Midwest with WSU.

  • Mattski

    Crafty.

    • MLaw

      Ding ding ding! Winner! It was all part of the Craft plan.

  • Cory

    Levert with 8 rebounds. That’s huge.

  • kam

    Hahaha craft is a winner

  • jakerblue

    Someone’s got to make a GIF with craft’a air ball from the first game and that “shot” together

  • Little Perm

    Aaron Craft – Not just a shooter, also a juggler!

    PS – Fuck Ohio.

    • MLaw

      I would go ahead and say not a shooter at all.

      • Little Perm

        I completely agree with this.

    • Fresh

      “A juggler” ………..might be the best thing I have ever read on this site

  • jemblue

    First time Beilein has won two straight in the BTT. He went 1-1 each of the previous six years.

  • Chazer

    CBS really….the ball was slippery is your recap!!!!! Such BS! These are your so called experts!

    • Chezaroo

      Gottlieb is a proven idiot

      • guestavo

        I remember when he said South Dakota St would beat us, then VCU, then Kansas then Florida then he shut up.

        • Chezaroo

          I know you know what I’m talking about. He’s an idiot, and he couldn’t shoot at OK State either. Idiot

    • arsenal926

      to be fair, that was all Gotlieb. Other three in the booth were practically laughing at him.

      • Chazer

        Then why talk about how good Ohio is vs. the team that won the game. I guess the highlight of the game was that Ohio lost….not that Michigan won….oh and the ball was slippery. So with a Wilson ball the implication was that Ohio would have won? What’s the point of the discussion?

  • Mattski

    Beilein exorcising a lot of demons for Michigan over the last few years.

    • Chazer

      What a great job JB has done….so much for that Princeton offense and poor recruiting record! Go blue and I love that they are under the radar. Just win baby!

  • tgio24

    Man was that one stressful but come tourny time it’s win and move on to the next one. FT shooting almost lost us game and as I stated before if I’m other team I’m fouling Morgan all day and putting him on FT line…especially in crunch time.

    • Mattski

      He probably doesn’t have the ball in his hands a lot then. But the truth is that we’re a squad of good shooters who sometimes space out at the line. Concentration. Will. Beilein can coach them up on this.

  • Rich74

    Will this be the first time to the finals of the BTT for us since the initial season?

    • jemblue

      Yes.

  • Mattski

    Looking for a gif of Nik’s dazzling up and under.

  • Mattski

    I wondered who I wanted to win this next game. Then I watched a few seconds and realized that I dislike MSU so much that I’d rather lose to Wisconsin than have MSU win today. Sad, I know. . .

    • rlcBlue

      Once they’re really healthy you’ll like them more…
