Pre-Game Reading

  • gobluemd16

    Doyle hopefully gets energy for this last 1:45

  • Chezaroo

    Kam better step up going forward, with Aubrey grabbing the opportunity

    • 93Grad

      I just don’t see it from Kam. At all. He looks totally overwhelmed at times. Not unlike Brundige

    • Chris De Sana

      Aubrey is obviously the far better athlete, the question is will this performance lead to others for him or not. Kam does look lost often on both ends of the court, with the easy part of the schedule over I do not expect it to improve anytime soon.

  • Tony DeMaria

    Now I know how Indiana fans felt last year with Yogi Ferrell

  • Chezaroo

    That’s a first rounder baby!!!

  • gobluemd16

    Man to man. No threes. Box out.

  • MGoTweeter

    dont turn it over andmake your free throws

  • Mattski

    Season on the ropes–Dawkins for 20. No problem!

  • Justin

    Levert playing like an nba first rounder

  • Tony DeMaria

    AHHHHHHH I love this school!

  • Chezaroo

    Aubrey, you so EARNED your scholly today!!! Thanks dude!!

  • Wayman Britt

    Not pretty at times, but a win is a win.

  • gobluemd16

  • gobluemd16

    The luck of the Harbaugh

  • MGoTweeter

    • Chezaroo

  • Indiana_Matt

    Wow. This was a nice change of pace. 1-0!

  • Tony DeMaria

    What a day for the University of Michigan. I don’t know what this means for the rest of the season but it certainly looked like a team that found its resolve and closed out a game.

  • gobluemd16

    Ton of mistakes and still rely so much on the three but definitely a lot of things to build off of. Got the ball screen game going with Doyle and Dawkins was fire!

    • gobluemd16

      Also, I think we had one total Turnover in the 2nd half and overtime

  • Tony DeMaria

    Anyone else know that Aubrey Dawkins went to the same high school as……………Jim Harbaugh

    • Mattski

      It’s Stanford connection day.

  • Mattski

    Oh my goodness was that fun! Today has been an awfully good day for the University of Michigan.

  • gobluemd16

    Doyle and Donnal played the same amount of minutes! Lol Beilein

  • 93Grad

    Great comeback. Meanwhile what is wrong with Walton. Zero improvement this year.
