  • jemblue

    Scary play.

  • Cory

    That count as a 3 attempt for Zak?

  • Cliff Pappe

    Purdue, Maryland: You’re welcome.

  • ChipperFliet

    Again, Thank you JESUS! nice pass

  • bobohle

    Walton bailed out Zak on that one.

  • tom48160

    C-ya!

  • Cory

    Held Happ to 4 points in the second half. Impressive.

    • Chris De Sana

      Changed the defense

  • jemblue

    We’ve played superb defense the last 10 minutes.

  • Wayman Britt

    Duncan please make these

  • Chezaroo

    I’d rather have Moe than about 10-12 players that are going to be drafted in this years first round. HUGE UPSIDE

    • jemblue

      Shhh, need him another year ;)

      • Chezaroo

        Won’t be surprised at all if he starts listening hard to the agents cooing

  • MGoTweeter

    Jees feels like both the refs and Michigan want Michigan to lose this game.

  • wolverheel

    That was the worst possession I’ve ever seen in my life.

  • GhostofMattD

    lmao that sequence

    • Cory

      lol at your screen name!

    • No Walmart Fan Here.

      Lmao your name rocks. I really do wish that guy was a ghost though lol.. He’s missing in action since the win streak.Fake guru. Lol.

  • Wayman Britt

    UW justs keeps hanging on

  • Alex

    Free throws please. Not over yet.

  • bobohle

    5 seconds to go.

    • bobohle

      They changed it to 9 seconds.

  • ChipperFliet

    Great effort on that last 1, 2, 3 possesion.

  • jemblue

    Last minute FTs always seem to be an adventure, going back to the Burke days it seems.

    • jemblue

      Last minute inbounds, too…

  • iBleedBlue

    lol at these freethrows…closest thing to a guarantee was that one of Walton and Duncan would make them

  • jemblue

    No way is that off us. But then, they blew an out of bounds call in Madison, too…

    • wolverheel

      This means Wisconsin ball

  • ChipperFliet

    Looks like an easy overturn

  • bobohle

    What’s that ref looking at off Wisc right in front of him.

  • ChipperFliet

    Throw it deep

  • MaizeBlue10

    Flashbacks of Tennessee game

  • Chezaroo

    Now let’s hit the road and win 2

    • jemblue

      We own the Barn. I like our chances there.

  • tom48160

    Way to go get it, Zak

  • ChipperFliet

    Well, this would be fitting. If Irvin can hit a couple freebies

  • MaizeBlue10

    Quiet hero tonight, Donnal. Another quiet important impact, Duncan.

  • bobohle

    Zak””s the man tonight!

  • Kevin Dale

    Nice game

  • jemblue

    Nice week – our first road victory, and now a signature win.

  • Chezaroo

    The season is back!

  • Alex

    Zak was huge tonight. Good team win. Keep working. Good effort.

    • bebopson

      Great to see him get back on track.

  • malcolm bolt

    Great win fellas! Beating Wisconsin at their own tempo.

  • ChipperFliet

    Call me crazy, but UM might be the best team in the B1G right now. Purdue prob has an edge up on us, but I like the way they are playing!

  • MGoTweeter

    Wasn’t pretty but michigan gutted one out. I thought the season was over after osu but great to see the team respond and play their way back in it

    • MaizeBlue10

      I’m an optimist and I’ll own up to thinking it was over after OSU too

    • No Walmart Fan Here.

      Thank you for being honest. I try to never give up.

  • Chezaroo

    Hilarious that Trice took 15 shots. Wow.

    • bobohle

      Just like his Sparty brother.

  • gobluemd16

    That last minute almost gave me an aneurysm. How bad was DJ? He looked lke he was asleep. Grab a damn rebound and hold it. He was just watching the shots before the one he dropped too. Make some FT and get the dang ball inbounds – always a problem seemingly for Beilein teams. Otherwise, way to step up Zak! Not worried about Derrick, just a tough matchup with Showalter.

    • No Walmart Fan Here.

      Gotta find something too complain about but this typical around these parts. I’m so glad that the team won because boy everyone would’ve been crying about how bad the players are, Beilien’s recruiting, how soft Walton is ect……its just typical to find something be negative about even after a great and impressive victory that can help us. This team is playing well.

  • bebopson

    Can’t believe Wiscy let D’Mitrik Trice lead the team in shots. Maybe it speaks to how well we guarded some of their other guys.

  • gobluemd16

    Is the site suuper slow for anyone else on iPhone?

  • bobohle

    Team confidence at a season high. Let’s get Minn next. I hope we don’t here about injuries from opponents after the last 3 years we had with them.

  • Chace

    I think the real highlight for Zak was his break away 2 hand slam!

  • No Walmart Fan Here.

    Some to think that some people suggested that we bench Zack……rather typical of um fans to give up on players way to early. Nothing new. I had a feeling that Zack would show up tonight. Good win guys, matter of fact GREAT WIN!!! that one poster who said that we are terrible and will lose all of our remaining games outside of Rutgers is nowhere to be found. Hummmm..This is a great win!

    • bobohle

      It’s great to be a Michigan Wolverine! EHHHHH?

    • MAZS

      Do you hurt yourself when you try to pat yourself on the back?

  • No Walmart Fan Here.

    Mist importantly we locked down Nigel Hayes and Vitto Brown ( who has played we against us) good job!

  • Stephen Chang

    Big win for Michigan tonight!
