Game 1: Howard at Michigan Open Thread

Dylan Burkhardt

Basketball is back at the Crisler Center with Michigan and Howard set for a Friday night tip-off in Ann Arbor. Tip time is scheduled for 9 p.m. and the game will be streamed by BTN-Plus (yes, this is a subscription service).

We’ll be posting live updates in our open thread and discussing the play as the Wolverines play their first of two games this weekend.

    “Talk about a wounded warrior” may not have been the best choice of analogy for young student announcer.

    Nice to see D Walt hit a couple threes. On the other hand, it is such a bad feeling when you think every Zak jumper isn’t going in. To make things worse, he shoots like he’s hit 3 in a row.

    • Not sure which I have less confidence in … Zak Irvin in transition or Zak Irvin stepping into a three.

  • gobluemd16

    Very, very encouraged by DJ’s play. He looks not only like he belongs, but that he can be a very solid contributor, at the least. One game, but I like what I see.

  • Final score: Michigan 76, Howard 58. Wolverines move to 1-0, face IUPUI on Sunday at noon.

    Ken Pom was right on with the point spread. Wish Teske could have played a little more. Simpson just a smooth player. Defense is coming along. Too many fouls though but the officials called too many ticky tack fouls. Don’t like the slow starts on offense
