    The dreaded inbounds pass. Smh

  • Mattski

    Okay John, my list of complaints is short. But we gotta be able to inbound a pass. And this business of always categorically benching a player when he gets a second foul. . . Oh, and the 1-3-1–JUDICIOUSLY.

  • MLaw

    Well this is fun…. Seriously this is out of hand.

  • MGoTweeter

    holy f. thisis ridiculous

  • JimC

    Only 6 secs to cross mid-court?!

  • mstein23

    Well, this is a better spot for the inbounds at least

  • Chezaroo

    AMAIZING effort by a gritty group of young men. Electric atmosphere today as well. You earned this one Blue!! Well done.

  • Steve Feller

    well that was easy

  • JimC

    When can we relax here?

  • Steve Feller

  • MGoTweeter

  • jr_ewing93

    Where all the doubtets at. HAHAHAHA! #GO BLUE!

  • 93Grad

    Wow. Great effort in the first half and they held on in the second. Dakich and Chatman even chipped in a few buckets.

  • countourzealous

    I think this is what these young guys can are capable of if they run quick transition offense. That’s what we did so successfully with Trey, and if these guys can get down court it’s just easy buckets. Offensive rebounding was huge as well as finishing in at the rim. Our half-court sets can sometimes looks horrible though. Fortunately today it got scrappy enough that we were able to recover from some of them.

    So proud of this team.

  • JohnNavarreIsMyHero

    Spike is such a gutsy player. But I have to give the play of the game to Irvin on that 3 to push the lead back to 6.

    • Mattski

      The putback by Dawkins was also huge. Such a clever and gutsy display–not what you would necessarily expect from a freshman.

  • Indiana_Matt

    I left Indy when the game started with wife and van full of kids headed to friends’ house in Columbus. After arriving in enemy territory four hours later I emerged from van jumped on their wifi to see what happened and my eyes popped out of my head. Go Blue!

  • Mattski

    The inbounds play that sprung MAAR for the easy layup was so slick I didn’t even catch it the first time. It’s at the tail-end of these highlights:

    Maybe Beilein got sick of everyone saying how lousy we are at putting the ball in play down the stretch.
