    Impressive fight back. That wasn’t a blowout but Minnesota couldn’t keep up with the best PG in the league.

  • jemblue

    IT’S GREAT TO BE A MICHIGAN WOLVERINE!

  • MLaw

    Now we can root for NW in the next game.

    • DetroitDan

      So we can avenge our other close late season lost.

  • Amiddy

    Who was 1st team All Big Ten at PG…… Think they might want to revote

  • malcolm bolt

    The squad is hot on neutral courts.

    • MLaw

      5-0 this season. I would say that’s hot.

      • malcolm bolt

        Scalding, scorching, en fuego. I’m loving it!

  • bobohle

    By the way NOT TOMORROW EITHER!!!! It’s great to be a MICHIGAN WOLVERINE!!!!!!!

  • Kishore Jayabalan

    Beautiful. NW or UW?

    • DetroitDan

      NW

    • Amiddy

      Either Lol who cares.

      • Kishore Jayabalan

        No coach speak. NW!

  • DetroitDan

    Outrebounded by 14, but never trailed after first minute

  • Cory

    5-0 on neutral court games this year. 12-0 is the goal!

  • Kishore Jayabalan

    DW was ridiculous down the stretch

  • AAtoLA

    1st Big Ten what??!! Take DWalt any day of the week. Good courage young man!

  • Joel_C

    This helps offset the nonsense that took place at The Barn a few weeks ago

    • malcolm bolt

      I believe Michigan is 8-0 since replaying every B1G the second time over.

  • jemblue

    Honestly, when it was 55-55 I didn’t know if we had it in us. The heart and guts of this team, wow.

  • Coltrane

    Beilein said Irvin looked really tired but he kept playing through it.

    • AAtoLA

      Irvin played great D! Couple key steals.

  • AAtoLA

    Big ten should re-evaluate their 1st team selection???? DWalt playing with courage!

  • Kishore Jayabalan

    Team on a Michigan!

  • AAtoLA

    Gophers were a #5 seed projection. If Michigan can get that #5 line that’d be huge for us in the tourney. Go Blue baby!

  • Chace

    The big ten is gonna be loaded next year

  • Joel_C

    I don’t think Minnesota ever had the lead

    • Kellen Hayes

      Just once… at 3-2

  • jemblue

    So we are definitely in the 7 seed line now, right? (If not possibly 6.) We can’t possibly be an 8 seed anymore, I would hope.

    • AAtoLA

      I think if we win tomorrow we could slide up to the #5 line.

      Before the game today Lunardi had us at a 7.

  • Barth Applefeld

    Seniors to the forefront!! A little later than we would have wished, perhaps, but they’ve had a lot to overcome.

  • Jonathan DeVries

    We thinking this team can compete with anyone come the Madness?

  • Champswest

    So great to see your favorite team playing their best in March. Everybody is playing well. Anyone could be our leading scorer.

  • Champswest

    Just noticed that Minnesota only had one block. Michigan had 3.

  • Stephen Chang

    Huge win! Go Blue! Beat Wisconsin!
