Michigan and Rutgers are set for a 7 p.m. tip-off at the Crisler Center this evening on the Big Ten Network. The Wolverines will be searching for their sixth win of the conference season while the Scarlet Knights are looking for their third Big Ten win — ever.

For the seventh straight game, Michigan will be without senior guard Caris LeVert.

  • Another tough stretch by Kam once he gets in the game.

    • Wayman Britt

      You just cannot play him

      • Mattski

        Feel bad for the guy. Just looks so tentative out there.

    Why randomly bring in Kam Chatman for a 3 minute stretch seemingly out of nowhere? Immediate turnover followed by immediate fumble out of bounds. We’re up 5 at home against Rutgers.

  • MGoTweeter

    Hey Ricky caught it, kept it high, and finished. Progress

    • Cory

      x2!

  • Cory

    Hey Dawkins, we need the 2 more than you need the highlight.

    • Cory

      4 point swing. From 11 to 7. Stupid.

  • MGoTweeter

    And the crowd wakes up thanks to a miss. Ha

  • MGoTweeter

    Definitely triple double watch for Irvin.

    • Cory

      Where are the stats at?

      • Cory

        nvm

  • ChipperFliet

    The difference in the game now is 3pt shooting UM 10-24 for 41%; Rutgers 3-15 for 19%

    • ChipperFliet

      “Water seeks it’s own level”

      • Mattski

        Dan, is that you?

    • ChipperFliet

      11-25 44%

  • Mattski

    Second-best scoring differential in the B1G–interesting. Despite the lack of fervor from our crowds. Hope Manuel can make things happen on that front.

    • ChipperFliet

      Indiana comes next Tues 9:00 PM start, the arena will be half empty. Over 1,100 tics on stub hub! I went to the Maryland game on a Tues 9 o’clock start and it was pretty sad!

      • MGoTweeter

        If there are that many available, the arena won’t be half empty, it will be half full of Indiana fans

  • ChipperFliet

    Come on Zak, just 3 more !

  • MGoTweeter

    Painful to watch. When do I get my refund for my ticket? Surely someone from the big ten office is on that right?

  • Wayman Britt

    One thing we learned from this game, is that I doubt we see Kam get any minutes over the next three games

  • MGoTweeter

    Omg. That is unreal

  • Woof. Not a lot to take from this one… tough to find positives. Now Irvin missing late free throws and no one rebounds the front end.

  • MGoTweeter

    The look on the refs face there was priceless

  • asoiasfoiashf

    hahaha #rutgersbasketball

  • Cory

    Maybe they’d be more familiar with the free throw rules if they’d actually line up on the lane all game when the other team is shooting. That’s Sportcenter Not Top 10 for sure.

  • Mattski

    Terrifyingly perfunctory game, n’est ce pas?

  • MGoTweeter

    Thank gosh that’s over. Night all

  • Mattski

    Apparently Irvin did not want the triple double.

  • Tuff Enough

    Bottomline if any one out there things this team will when any thing important needs to get there head examine period. 2 of are only seniors are on the bench and maybe for good, its bad all around.
