    Too much time left.

  • MGoTweeter

    really worried irvin was going to miss that

    • Cory

      Ha! Me too! Thought he took off too early

    • jakelam2116

      Agree. Illinois deja vu.

  • jakelam2116

    Just when you think it’s over, nah — a ridiculous 3.

  • Nothing easy for this team…

  • jakelam2116

    Meanwhile, Ole Miss up at Rupp by a point with 50 sec

  • jemblue

    Inbounding in these situations always seems to be an adventure.

    • jakelam2116

      Nicely done there.

  • Cory

    UPSET ALERT: Ole Miss taking Kentucky to OT

    • jakelam2116

      Ole Miss had a bad TO and then an awful final shot in regulation. Feel like they let the opportunity slip away.

      • Cory

        I’ve had the game streaming and have been watching during Michigan breaks. Seems like Kentucky gets the benefit of the doubt on A LOT of calls.

  • Chezaroo

    Lot of nice contributions tonite. This team desparately needed a win. Something to build on going into a very winnable home game against Minny. They could have folded but didn’t. Nice to see Caris hit two HUGE baskets when needed. He has that ability to take over when engaged fully. Big hoops.

  • jakelam2116

    The best the ‘Big 3’ have all played in a game since _____?

    • Cory

      Minnesota last year?

  • MGoTweeter

    alright. besides the turnovers and struggling against the zone, pretty decent game for michigan. great to see shots fall and all the freshmen contribute. still work to be done but another small step forward

  • Burke_Does_Work

    I didn’t know you could beat other teams on the road…that’s news to me!

  • Vince

    Hope the team will find its identity and all players settle into a role after this hard fought game! Go Blue!

    Great Win!!! I love that Dawkins came in and provided a spark in the second half, really feel like we need him down the stretch. Chatman will be so much better next year, but I almost felt like playing him 30 minutes a night was going to do more long term damage (i.e. mentally and confidence wise) than any short term gain. Loved the move with the starting lineup and that all the freshman outside of Doyle were in the 5-15 minute range, which is where they all need to be. Let Spike, Caris and Zak play their normal minutes, sprinkle Walton until fully healthy and ride Doyle. Did Donnal play in the 2nd?

    One more thing, if anyone went and has a ticket stub from this game, please drop me a response so that I can buy it if you are willing to sell. I collect stubs for every Michigan game, and didn’t have one lined up for this game.
