  • Chris De Sana

    Spike should have leaned into that attempted block, 3 free throws were coming his way.

  • MGoTweeter

    tough break there pgs miss open jumpers then doyle commits a foul at midcourt

  • Wayman Britt

    If Donnal had half the toughness of Doyle, it would be nice

  • jakelam2116

    Caris Time

  • Wayman Britt

    No way that was a block

  • MLaw

    Spike was robbed, but was extremely lucky not to get the technical.

  • jakelam2116

    That’s a charge, I’d say

  • MLaw

    Last time out for Minnesota, but that seems like a jump ball to me.

  • Chris De Sana

    Last time out for Minny?

  • MLaw

    Walton’s bad shot and Albrecht’s follow-up bad 3 killed our momentum. I can’t help but feel this is slipping a little.

    • blahblah

      it’s a 3 point game with 5 minutes left. relax.

      • MLaw

        There is still plenty of time, just feel the momentum slipped at that moment. Plenty of time to grab it back.

  • Chris De Sana

    If Spike and Zak would have even had a decent game we would be up by 10 right now.

    • MGoTweeter

      or if minny didnt constantly pass to the third row, theyd be up ten

  • Wayman Britt

    Start setting many pics for Caris let him carry the team.

  • jakelam2116

    Man, Minny can’t stop throwing the ball away. Thank you.

  • MLaw

    Huge misses by Gophers and equally huge make by Walton. That was a 6 point swing.

    • Wayman Britt

      yep, keep running Caris off screens and let him drive

  • A2MIKE

    REBOUND

  • MLaw

    Nice late call. Correct call, but also really late.

    • A2MIKE

      I hate that call but it is the correct call, hollns got the same call earlier

  • jakelam2116

    Yep. Just like Kam in the 1st half.

  • MGoTweeter

    wow that was a latewhistle

    • Steve2081

      I was just about to start cussing.

  • That looks like a three.

    • MLaw

      I think they may be checking time as well. Looks like a 3 and in time.

    • Wayman Britt

      Need to hit all 3 FT

  • Alex

    Caris initiated that but fine since Hollins did the same thing to us. Not to mention Hancock in that championship game.

  • Chezaroo

    Walker is a physical specimen, but he has only got 5 today. Way below his average.

  • jakelam2116

    Gotta get a loose ball. That hurts.

  • MLaw

    Andre Hollins is a baller, I will be glad when he graduates.

  • Wayman Britt

    Both teams playing hard

  • jakelam2116

    Good lord. Great hustle, Spike

    • Walton too. Smart by everyone realizing Minnesota had no timeouts.

  • Cory

    That’s where having no time outs left hurt them.

  • MGoTweeter

    ack big loose ball leads to three for minny. then wildscramble at othrr end for mihigan

  • jakelam2116

    Thank you Minny

  • MLaw

    Thank you Minnesota!

  • Wayman Britt

    Only want Walton or Caris shooting this.

    • A2MIKE

      Lol

      • MLaw

        Walton still responsible for the play, but Doyle finished beautifully.

  • MLaw

    Michigan still in the 1 and 1, Gophers in the double bonus.

  • Chris De Sana

    Too funny watching Dakich in the huddle does he ever stop talking?

  • MGoTweeter

    oh my both teams missing chances to take this game

    • Wayman Britt

      You are right if I was a Minny fan I would be killing myself

  • MLaw

    DOYLE!!!!

  • jakelam2116

    That was a thing of beauty

  • Cory

    DOYLE RULES!!!!

  • MGoTweeter

    great play call, great execution! doyle!

  • MLaw

    Such an awesome dunk!

  • jakelam2116

    Should’ve been a foul, too.

  • Steve Feller

    Wow!!! That was a huge play – finish this Zak

  • jakelam2116

    Still gotta make a free throw…

  • MLaw

    FT’s huge in this game. Minnesota will kick themselves about the late FTs they missed.

  • Chezaroo

    Huge win. Ugly but beautiful

  • Cory

    BEAT OHIO

  • jakelam2116

    Wow … this team never, ever makes anything look easy. I’ll take it.

  • MLaw

    Huge win. Potentially season saving. Glad we don’t play Gophers again or that dunk at the buzzer may be a sticking point.

    • jakerblue

      Yeah little surprised caris did that, we all ripped IU when they did that to us last year

  • Wayman Britt

    Nice win, if I was a Minny fan I would be stabbing myself

  • MGoTweeter

    considering the way michigan shot, feels like they stole one. really good execution and coaching over the last five minutes. beat the buckeyes!
