    Looks like we are starting to play not to lose which is bad.

    • jemblue

      Well, you can’t fault any of those threes. Just have to make one of them.

  • Bleedblue

    I would love to see what % of Nebraska’s offensive possessions and field goals made have been in “transition”

  • Chezaroo

    Our offensive rebounding has been sensational today. Let’s put this away now

  • MGoTweeter

    I stand corrected that is the worst pass Walton has ever made

  • jemblue

    Come on, settle down Derrick.

  • Bleedblue

    Definitely seems that the ref’s require far more contact for Nebraska to get called

  • Joel_C

    Clutch, Walton. Needed those.

  • Joel_C

    Hey refs: There doesn’t HAVE to be a foul on every possession.

    • Joel_C

      Although that time it worked in our favor >_>

  • Timothy David

    ROBINSON!

  • MGoTweeter

    Stauskas-esque dunk

  • jemblue

    HUGE!

  • mstein23

    Dunkin’ Duncan!

  • Chezaroo

    BOOYAH

  • Mattski

    Woot!

  • MGoTweeter

    Duncan almost got a technical there though. No need to do that pull-up

    • Wayman Britt

      Crowd wanted it

  • Joel_C

    Oh wow I thought that was Donnal at first!! Got way up there.

  • bobohle

    Robinson what a finish.

  • Bleedblue

    We are one of the few teams that can complain about shooting %50 from 3. Missed alot of open shots

  • Joel_C

    FT shooting is huge

  • MGoTweeter

    Nice block Donnal.

  • Joel_C

    Alright boys, let’s wrap it up!

  • Wayman Britt

    Donnal playing tough, he sure has changed

    • MGoTweeter

      Incredible. Just a completely different player

  • jemblue

    Great game from Donnal today. Lots of key plays at both ends.

  • Joel_C

    Spike sighting :O

  • MEL

    Donnal is the absolute biggest surprise of the B1G season. Unbelievable

  • Chezaroo

    Man we did a nice job on Shields today. Minimal impact

  • MGoTweeter

    Cmon guys gotta keep playing here

    • jemblue

      I hope this isn’t another Minnesota where the last minute takes 10 minutes of real time.

  • Joel_C

    Not over just yet

  • bleedblue

    I hate how we play D to finish a game. Letting the guy get a layup takes 1 second longer than fouling the guy, which we can do after playing 10-15 seconds of defense

    • jemblue

      We’ve got to pick up the ball sooner. Don’t let them bounce the inbounds all the way across half court.

  • bobohle

    Just make the freethrows.

    • bleedblue

      and get the ball in

  • bleedblue

    Dwalt is getting hugged, each inbounds play

    • Wayman Britt

      He sure was

  • MGoTweeter

    Not sure what Irvin is looking at. Had the first guy cutting open both times there

  • Joel_C

    Lol nice. The icing.

  • MGoTweeter

    Huge win for Michigan. Some really poor moments there but made the plays down the stretch to win.

    • Wayman Britt

      Agree, huge win.

  • Mattski

    Terrific win. Just a little slack in breaking the press sometimes, my only big complaint.

  • bleedblue

    Dwalt earned that shot going in. He and Mark won this game for us

    • Joel_C

      Don’t forget Zack

    • three_goggles

      And Duncan

  • mpbear14

    That is a monster win

  • jemblue

    What is Beilein now when we score 80+ points? 50-0?

    • bobohle

      Undefeated I know.

    • Joel_C

      That’ll change eventually with the shortened shot clock, but wow, that’s insane

  • bobohle

    Next up Rutgers. Great composure finally at the end.

  • Joel_C

    Battled through some inconsistency and bizarre (at times) officiating to pick up a really strong road win. Especially impressive considering what happened in East Lansing during the week.

  • GTFOmycourt

    Great win!

  • MEL

    Playing well, we’ve discovered a serviceable 5, and getting a lottery pick back in time for Indiana. Really set up to make a run at the double-bye in the conference tournament

  • Mattski

    Throwing the press at people likely pays bigger dividends with the shorter clock; somebody run a study.

  • Joel_C

    Wow our next 4 games are at Crisler?? How did we work that out?

    • bobohle

      Penn St @ The Garden

      • Joel_C

        Ohhhhh I see. Still pretty nice.
