Johns is out of the rotation entirely at the five at this point.? That was a short-lived?experiment that did not work well.? Quickly passed by Castleton.? Davis should even be ahead of him as a third big body if necessary.
He played some minutes as the third four against MSU because both Iggy and Livers were in foul trouble and Matthews was out.? That was a Weird Guys situation that probably won't happen again unless one of the wings gets hurt (please no).? I could see Matthews play the four in a small lineup before I'd expect to see Johns in a game at this point.
So you shouldn't have to worry about that.
|03/26/2019 - 2:14am||The analogy to your example…||
The analogy to your example would be at the end of a basketball game if your team is tied or down by one and there's less than a minute and you're likely to only have (or need) one more possession.
In that case, you'd potentially be better off going for a two which in theory gives you a higher chance of scoring some points.
But like baseball, there are a ton of other factors to consider: who is shooting/bunting, what the defense is giving you/how you're being pitched, etc.? It still might be better to take a three if they leave you wide open and put all their guys in the paint to defend the two pointer that they're waiting for you to take.? It's all very circumstantial.
And like baseball, you want to try to maximize your points per possession or runs per game for most of the game.?It's?only advisable to sacrifice expected points to reduce variance?at the very end when you know you know you just need precisely one or two points (or runs) to win.
The "analytics" guys and really any coach with common sense does take this into account when advising teams about what to do late in games.
|03/26/2019 - 1:37am||You're over simplifying this…||
You're over simplifying this though.? Every possession and every shot represents a tradeoff. If you pass on?an open three, you are by no means guaranteed to have the opportunity to?get a 50% two point shot later in the possession.? ?In general, you simply want to take good shots when they're presented to you.? Certainly late in games with a lead you should pass up open threes to kill more clock?but that's just about that only time you'd consider?passing up a good shot, whether it be a two or a three.
|03/26/2019 - 1:00am||That's just spent yeast.?…||
That's just spent yeast.? Won't harm you.? Refrigeration?isn't necessary.? What it does?do is render the yeast inactive which means it won't continue metabolizing sugar and reproducing?so refrigeration?keeps the beer tasting the same and means you won't get the sediment at the bottom. On the other hand, cellaring beer allows the yeast to continue working which is what you want with some beers.
From the Bell's website:
MY BEER SAYS IT IS UNPASTEURIZED. IS IT SAFE TO DRINK IF STORED AT ROOM?TEMPERATURE?
Yes, they are safe to?drink.
Due to the levels of alcohol and acidity, human pathogens do not survive in beer, so pasteurization is unnecessary from a food-safety?standpoint.

He was in a long slump like a baseball player on a long hitless streak.
He did not hit a three pointer in January or February (was 0-8 in that time and didn't have the confidence to shoot it).
He just needed to see some go in and once he did, he's been good for the past 6 games.

Single without nice stuff?? Yes, sell it.? Sell it all.?
Full home of property and furniture with a family?? Get some good movers because the time it would take to sell of of your?stuff, and then buy new stuff, and figure out how to live in the meantime?wouldn't be close to worth the hassle.? Especially since you'd probably lose a good amount of money in the transactions.
|03/25/2019 - 4:58pm||I was going to say, you'll…||
I was going to say, you'll give back your higher?pay and then some in cost of living.? It generally is not cost effective to live on the coasts.? Quite the opposite.? You'll pay more to live in?places that are in much higher demand and your bump in pay will not usually make up for it because the supply of labor is enough such that companies don't have to pay a commensurate?premium.
This chart here by the Harvard Center for Housing Studies demonstrates that very clearly. The key quotes from the article:
"The report also notes that price-to-income ratios vary considerably across the country. As our interactive map shows, the median sale price in 2017 was more than eight times greater than incomes in 12 metropolitan areas, all of them in the West (Figure 1). Ed:?This is what I call the sun tax.?Price-to-income ratios topped 10.0 in both the Santa Cruz and San Jose metro areas and neared 10 in Los Angeles. On the other hand, ratios were well below 3.0 in much of the Midwest and Northeast, including Youngstown, Syracuse, Toledo, and Pittsburgh."
People should live where they?want to live in terms of quality of life - and in most places it costs to do so - you don't get subsidized to live in high demand places.? If?Michigan is a place where you have high quality of life (as I'm sure many of us on this blog?do), consider yourself?super lucky.? ?
|03/25/2019 - 12:18pm||As much as the NCAA loves…||
As much as the NCAA loves money, I'm surprised they don't do these regional semis in two separate sessions.? Space the games out by 2 hours, clear everyone out, bring in the next group, the same way you do in the first round between sessions.
Prices would be lower per game which is good for fans and you'd make a lot more revenue overall.? For TV, you could stagger the two locations?such that you always have one game playing so TV revenue is higher too (no overlapping games).
|03/25/2019 - 12:14pm||I wasn't paying attention to…||
I wasn't paying attention to the full strip tickets before the first session last year but I did notice a big drop in session 2 prices after the first games as the two losing fanbases unloaded their tickets such that I paid almost half for session 2 as a did for session 1 in an almost identical spot.
Again, I'm not sure if I paid more or less for the combined sessions as I would have paid for the full strip but I was happy with what I paid for session 2 and I just did not want to have to sell my ticket if Michigan lost the first game.
|03/25/2019 - 12:08pm||This may have worked 5-10…||
This may have worked 5-10 years ago but for sold out events with a stubhub/ticket broker physical presence, it doesn't work well these days.? When people have extras they just take them to stubhub's booth instead of waste the time trying to find buyers.? The marketplaces are much more liquid these days.
|03/25/2019 - 12:03pm||Two big differences:
Two big differences:
1) You hit on this one but there's a big difference between being a good team all year and legitimate threat to win the region and a complete surprise team.? The fact that this is year is seeds 1-4 and every team had a good year and the fan bases have been activated all year (and in this case, since at least last year for each team) means fans would be much more likely to have planned for a potential appearance here and would be much more willing to drop $300-500 on tickets.
Last year, FSU and Texas A&M had meh seasons and were complete surprises to be at Staples.? And they didn't have high hopes of winning the region.? In that context, fans are going to be less enthused about dropping a couple hundreds bucks for a game (and certainly less?willing to hop a flight from out of town).
Even Gonzaga being one of the best teams all year and potential national title winner is a big difference than being a 4 seed.
2) Honda Center is about 15% smaller than Staples (capacity of ~18,400 vs 21,000).? That's a pretty big difference in supply.
That said, there are hundreds (maybe thousands)?of tickets available at face ($110) in the upper sections.? I would expect things to settle a little bit and all these people asking for absurd amounts in the lower bowl will come down a little as Thursday gets closer.? Will still be a quite a bit more than last year, I expect.
|03/24/2019 - 3:19pm||That's the primary reason I…||
That's the primary reason I argue Simpson is the team MVP.? He and Teske are critical and have similar on/off differences but the fact Simpson can go 40 minutes and plays 6 more minutes per game than Teske, gives him the edge.
|03/24/2019 - 3:12pm||He's been just what Michigan…||
He's been just what Michigan needs off the bench for the past 6 or so games...just like he was in the first month of the season.
He had an extended shooting slump that was entirely confidence (and bad luck) related.? He's a good player and it's very good for the team that he is playing solidly off the bench again.? And it makes Poole a better player to have an adequate backup that can give him rest and keep him accountable.
|03/24/2019 - 2:47pm||Agreed.? Why put off until…||
Agreed.? Why put off until tomorrow what we can do today?? Let's win it this year.? And then next year also.
|03/24/2019 - 1:39am||They are a good defense this…||
They are a good defense this year, almost as good as Michigan (and their stats are even closer if you only count games Zion played), but they do it quite differently.? They do it the usual way: by blocking shots.? They have the third highest block rate in the country.
Michigan is a weird team.? They're one of the rare teams that hold opponents to very low 2pt % without blocking a lot of shots (only 110th nationally).? They're able to maintain a low 2pt % by?forcing teams to take tough 2 pt jumpers disproportionately more than shots at the rim.? They are able to do this without having exceptional shot blocking by limiting transition and keeping perimeter players in front of themselves and out of the paint.
|03/23/2019 - 1:23pm||You've been watching Beilein…||
You've been watching Beilein ball for what, 12, 13 years now?? That's just the way it is.
I disagree that we just stand there, but we do work the ball around patiently probing instead of attacking hard. The basic principles of Beileins offense are: 1) do not turn it over and 2) work the offense patiently?to get a good shot.
Since above all else, we try to avoid turnovers, we tend to not force anything.? That?means working the offense patiently, running sets until the defense gives a sliver of an opening or misses a switch or gives up a backdoor or loses focus for a fraction of a second.
If Michigan's offense were a tennis player, it would be Rafeal Nadal.? Not explosive or overpowering but patient and unrelenting.? He doesn't go for many winners, he?just keeps returning shot?after shot?until his opponent makes a mistake.? Same as the Michigan offense.
The opposite would be Pete Sampras or Roger Federer who go for?hard, attacking serves and?winners early in a volley even if it means making some unforced errors.?That's like UNC basketball.
Michigan plays this way because they?don't have guys that can create at will.? Their strength is their discipline.? Their ability to be more patient than the opponent.? And the majority of the time, it works great.?
But it turns into a slog?when they play really well-coached, patient defenses like Wisconsin and MSU that will play a 30 second possession with excellent discipline.? That's when you end up with Poole jacking up tough threes or Zavier driving into trees late in a shot clock.
|03/22/2019 - 7:59pm||Completely agree that he's…||
Completely agree that he's the most talented and dynamic player on the roster.
You're 100% wrong about opportunity?being the only thing keeping him from taking over games.? He's been given lots of opportunities to take over games and he's not done well with them (at Wisconsin, at Iowa, at PSU, all the MSU games, etc).?He's just not a good decision maker at this point and doesn't create for others well enough. Too many step back contested jumpers.? He's excellent going to the hole but doesn't have a good feel for when to do it and when not to.
If he were a better decision maker, he would be taking over games like Burke and Stauskas and Walton did.? He's not there yet.? And yes, he's young.? He has time.? But since he's not there in terms of decision making, it's better to put him in a deferential role/corner gunner.? The team is better when he plays that way.? This year.
|03/22/2019 - 7:38pm||You almost had it.? It's not…||
I read that exactly the same as you though.? Of their two defensive weaknesses, we are either unwilling to exploit (offensive rebounds) or unable to exploit (draw fouls) them.? Although, I would make the distinction that?we actually can make FTs (we're at it?now!), we just don't attempt to/have guys that are good at drawing fouls.
I also would have?preferred Nevada.? We should win this,?but good chance it's a low scoring slog which makes me nervous because anything can happen.
The two mitigating factors: 1) the short rest and prep time might make it more difficult for them to prepare for Michigan's offense and could open some things up and 2)?their defense seems more?turnover dependent than the patient kind of defenses that give Michigan the most trouble.? They will probably gamble for turnovers, mostly not get them, and expose themselves to the openings that Michigan offenses are meant to exploit.
|03/22/2019 - 6:54pm||Completely agree.? He needs…||
Completely agree.? He needs to slow down.? He is unnecessarily rushing too many shots.? Guys aren't even close to blocking that.
|03/22/2019 - 6:49pm||His starting spot is not in…||
His starting spot is not in jeopardy and it won't be next year?but some of?his playing time is, thankfully.? When Brooks was mired in a bad slump, Beilein didn't want to play him and openly admitted he would like to play Poole less (this was after the first MSU loss in which Poole was horrible), he just didn't have anyone to play for him.? That meant Poole couldn't be held accountable.
Now that Brooks seems to have his confidence back and is a perfectly adequate backup, Poole can't just take bad shots and tell Beilein to relax without any consequences.? Now if he makes bad plays, he sits.? So it makes him play smarter and that's good.
|03/22/2019 - 6:37pm||Yes, given it is the best…||
Yes, given it is the best thing that is within the realm of possibility.? He's not Sophomore Stauskas so a chastened Poole is much better than the bad Poole that is only other Poole we've seen this year and which cost Michigan a couple MSU games.
Next year if he can be Sophomore Stauskas and be a threat to drive and pass such that he doesn't settle for so many contested jumpers that would be the ideal Poole.? He's not there.? So he should just spread the floor and?take what the defense gives?him?- especially if Matthews is going to play like this.
And FTR, by my count, Poole had 10 points on 6 shot equivalents,?NOT 8 as was published here.? He was 2-4 FG and 5-5 FTs with an And1.? That's just 6 shots.
|03/22/2019 - 12:35pm||Shhhhhh, yes it has.||
Shhhhhh, yes it has.
|03/22/2019 - 12:33pm||Teske is rushing his threes…||
Teske is rushing his threes WAY too much.? We joked early in the season about how his shot was like loading a trebuchet it was so slow.? I assume?the coaches tried to speed him up?but whatever the cause,?I think thats been?a?mistake.? He's releasing that thing from 8 feet in the air.? Until someone blocks it, take your time big fella.
|03/22/2019 - 12:31pm||Yeah, but they were the kind…||
Yeah, but they were the kind of long twos or contested shots that Michigan wanted them to take.? I agree that Michigan was probably fortunate Montana shot so poorly but Michigan didn't shoot all that well either.?
|03/22/2019 - 12:27pm||No.? It wasn't missing.? He…||
No.? His offense was the best we could ask for because only the bad was?missing.? He had 10 points on just 6 shot equivalents in only 27 minutes.? Highly efficient. Good shot selection, got to the basket a couple times and largely deferred to other, better matchups.? That was perfect.
This is a MUCH better Poole than the guy that has blown several games for Michigan.? He's not good enough right now to be first (that's Simpson) or even second (Iggy) or even third fiddle (when Matthews is playing like this) so the team is much better off when he's a guy that takes what the defense gives him instead of a guy forcing a bunch of bad shots.
|03/22/2019 - 12:19pm||Their fans will still be…||
If our game was second perhaps they wouldn't make it to the end. If?alcohol isn't being served in the arena (is it?), Sparty Naaaaaation would be torn between their two favorite pastimes: being degenerate jabroni's or?rooting against their big brothers.
As it is, they'll certainly?be there for at least the end of our game to root for Florida.

Let's just not dig up any clips from about 2.5ish months ago.
|03/22/2019 - 12:06pm||I think the opponent…||
I think the opponent deserves some credit for the first half turnovers.? They were a tiny team but that meant they had a lot of quickness out there.? They were like jitterbugs flying all over the place early on, and got their hands one some balls.? Michigan had to adjust to basically playing five quick guards.
|03/21/2019 - 5:34pm||It depends on?the minimum…||
It depends on?the minimum number of appearances you require to be on the list.? There are a few guys that jump ahead of Beilein when you calculate it?per appearance:
If you require 5 or more appearances, there is one active coach?that has a better per appearance PAKE/PASE:
Frank?Martin (the run to the Final Four as a 7 seed with So Carolina)
If you open it up to guys not currently in college, Brad Stevens was better than Beilein.? Rollie Massimino, who coached the mid-80s Nova team that went far as an 8 seed with Kerry Kittles is even higher than Stevens.
In any case, Beilein is good. A legend in the tournament, really.? Now he needs a title.?
|03/21/2019 - 5:15pm||Normally trapping does the…||
Normally trapping does the opposite of creating a lot of iso.? They double, you pass out of it and then find the open man.? Switching usually creates a lot of iso because it ensures that someone is guarding everyone, takes you out of your offense but gives you matchups you're more likely to want to attack one-on-one.
My guess is their trap just has the effect of taking teams out of ball screens and then they try other stuff.
It would be good to see Michigan attack and exploit it.
|03/20/2019 - 7:55pm||They aren't the top 2 seed.?…||
They aren't the top 2 seed.? They are the second 2?seed, sixth overall seed.? Committee chairman said they didn't move ahead of Tennessee who was the top 2 seed.? That's why Tennessee got the Louisville region.
|03/20/2019 - 7:44pm||The 1-3-1?worked fine in…||
The 1-3-1?worked fine in that game, but it was generally not that good (67th in the country, 6th in the conference).? On an opponent adjusted basis it was the fourth best defensive performance of the season.? Many other games, not so good. That's why JB ditched it.
It was always better against non-conference teams that didn't scout it much so getting UCLA the second game of the season was good timing.
|03/20/2019 - 7:26pm||Last game is at 9:30pm ET.?…||
Last game is at 9:30pm ET.? Second to last is 8:30pm.? Schedule is here.
Second round, Saturday, March 23????
Game 1: 12:00 pm CBS?
Game 2: 2:30 pm CBS?
Game 3: 5:00 pm CBS?
Game 4: 6:00 pm TNT?
Game 5: 7:00 pm TBS?
Game 6: 7:30 pm CBS?
Game 7: 8:30 pm TNT?
Game 8: 9:30 pm TBS
My guess is they'll be the 8:30 or 9:30 game given the late start on Thursday.
|03/20/2019 - 7:18pm||I agree with the endless…||
I agree with the endless motor guy that Livers is the best NBA prospect on this team, save more maybe Poole.? Also too early to tell with the freshmen.? But out of the current seven man rotation, he's the 1 or 2.
Deadly shooter and defender that can guard four positions.? He is the quintessential 3 and D/glue guy that NBA teams covet.? He certainly won't be a star but has a good chance at a long career as a role player.
|03/20/2019 - 7:13pm||I think Iggy is far more…||
I think Iggy is far more likely to leave because 1) he's currently ranked higher and 2) his flaws (lack of athlecism) are not going away.
Iggy has a lot less to gain from coming back.? His limitations will always make it hard (probably impossible) for him to be a lottery pick so he might feel like he should just get on with his career.
Poole on the other hand has a ton of talent and potential, he's just a bad decision maker.? If he came back and showed improvement in that area, he moves from a second rounder to a possible lottery pick and that's good return on his year investment.
I wouldn't be surprised if they both came back, but I wouldn't be surprised if Iggy left either.? I would be surprised if Poole left unless he flips a switch and tears up the tournament.
He just got owned by Matt McQuaid for multiple games in the past month.? And I mean absolutely owned on both ends of the floor.? I can't see an NBA exec getting too excited about that.
|03/20/2019 - 7:08pm||That is a good point that…||
That is a good point that Iggy's development could also be key to next year.? If he can add an ability to create for others, that would be huge.
While he's gotten better at recognizing when to back it out, he still has a long way to go there.? He was pretty brutal in the second half of the BTT title game.? I was watching with an MSU fan and every time he drove, I called that it was going up and indeed it did to poor effect.? He still puts up too much in traffic.? Lot of room to cut down on that and then take it to the next level of drawing in the defense and passing it.
So I agree that if he does, things open up quite a bit.
As for Poole, the ideal for him on offense?still looks exactly?like Nik Stauskas as sophomore.? A guy that can run the pick and roll as a threat to drive, pass or shoot.? He's just not there in his decision making about when to drive, pass or?shoot.
He isn't aggressive enough with his drives (which he's really good at) and too often gets a switch, dribbles a few times, and then just jacks up a bad three.?The ceiling is higher for him than Iggy because he can go around guys instead of straight line driving into guys and he has shown better court vision (just doesn't use it enough).
|03/20/2019 - 6:50pm||I'm going to continue to…||
I'm going to continue to campaign for a new way to assign teams to locations rather than by rote calculation of distance from campus:
Have the ADs from schools with a chance to get a top 4 seed going into championship weekend (the top 24ish to the committee) submit a preference order for location and use that instead of distance from campus.
I have to believe, if Warde/the AD has any idea where alums live (plenty of data available on that), that Michigan's list would have these three locations at the top choices: 1) Columbus 2) Hartford 3) San Jose.
So MSU and UNC slotted into Columbus which is fine (although I'm sure UNC wouldn't have preferred Big Ten country if given the choice), but then Michigan gets frickin Des Moines, Iowa.
Is anyone really going to make the 9 hour, 600 mile trip from Ann Arbor to Des Moines?? Certainly not enough people to move the needle.? Even for Chicagoans it's a 5+ hour, 300+ mile drive.? I hope I'm wrong (make the drive everyone!), but that's going to be a drab, half-empty arena.
Meanwhile, Florida State and Marquette will be playing in a drab, half-empty or less arena in Hartford.? Because reasons.
If Michigan were allowed to submit a preference order in the way I'd think they would, they'd be in Hartford and the place would be packed.?
Des Moines wouldn't be any worse off for hosting FSU and Marquette so it's a win-win-win for the host cities, fans, and the higher seeds.
|03/19/2019 - 3:03pm||So when he's saying "God, I…||
So when he's saying "God, I feel I could do a little more" he's referring to the fact he could do more under Fisch than Pep, right?? I was a little confused by his comment because he compares Shea's situation to his when Fisch left.
But Shea's situation would be one of having the handcuffs removed, He makes it sound like it's the "same type of situation when Fisch left" but I assume he means it was the opposite situation when Fisch left because the handcuffs were put on him?
|03/19/2019 - 2:56pm||Jalen Wilson should step…||
Jalen Wilson should step right in as a backup wing?next year.? With (hopefully) everyone besides Matthews back, MBB should once again be a top 8ish team (and better if the lightbulb goes on for Poole).? Boy have times changed.?
|03/18/2019 - 7:09pm||Uhhhh, I think you've…||
Uhhhh, I think you've probably already realized that your comment seems to have missed the point entirely, but I'll respond.
Your initial comment suggested that?Nevada is inexplicably seeded 7th.? I am fully aware that the seeding doesn't go by straight quality or competency which does cause some teams to be under or overseeded.
I am merely pointing out that by the most cited quality metric (kenpom)?Nevada is seeded exactly where they should be.? And quality is what Michigan is concerned about.? They're 33rd in Torvik, 24th in Sagarin?and 20th in BPI so the top 4 quality metrics are in a fairly tight range?around?25-28 where 7 seeds should be.
Their NET is 23rd and their Strength of Record is 28th so the resume metrics put them there too.? They are one of the few teams in the 4-10 seed range whose seed is highly explicable.
I would argue Louisville?(22 in NET, 17th in kenpom, 18 in BPI) and Wofford (13!! in NET, 17 in BPI and 19 in kenpom) are the 7 seeds that their potential 2 seed foes should be complaining about.? Fortunate Michigan missed those teams which are truly inexplicably seeded, Wofford especially!?
|03/18/2019 - 6:06pm||Sounds like you're saying…||
Sounds like you're saying two different things here:? 1) that three guys can get their own shots late and 2) Michigan should focus on getting one of those three decent looks.
In suggesting 1) you're implying they can get decent looks on their own.? And Michigan is allowing them to do that.? They just aren't actually good at getting decent looks on their own.?
Matthews can get that 10-15 foot fadewaway at will but it's not a good shot.? It's a two pointer that he makes about 35% of the time.? That's a horrible, horrible shot.
Iggy definitely better and at least attempts to draw fouls (successfully sometimes).? The problem is that he doesn't pass so defense collapse on him and refs swallow their whistles late in games so he doesn't get calls he was getting earlier in games.? So he's just an ok late clock option.
Poole is just a very bad decision maker in iso late clock situations.? He should drive more but he loves that pull-up/step back and it's not efficient.
So the best late clock option remains Zavier Simpson.? He is still the best guy to ask to make a play for himself or?others.?
|03/18/2019 - 5:54pm||Poole gets a significant…||
Poole gets a significant number of ISOs and he is not?good with them.? The numbers say what the eyes can easily see.
He could probably be a lot better?if he drove more often (which is something he is good at so he should do more of)?instead of?jacking?up so many contested threes (which he is not good at).? He does not exhibit good shot selection and that's why his ISOs are inefficient.
|03/18/2019 - 12:10pm||Ha, great answer!? Funny the…||
Ha, great answer!? Funny the similarities.? Although there were a couple differences: 1) the 2013 team didn't play great defense all year.? They were an?average big ten defense so wasn't all that surprising.?2) I felt like we did guard DiVincenzo and he just hit some bombs in guys faces (although I could be wrong about that).
|03/18/2019 - 11:54am||It's not inexperience, per…||
It's not inexperience, per se. He might "get it" at some point, but most players already know what is a good shot and what is a bad shot when they arrived, if they were coached well in high school.? Others learn very quickly.
Jordan Poole is either a very slow learner as it relates to basketball or he is just defiant.? I'm sure it's the former.? Hopefully it is and hopefully it clicks for him at some point but he is way behind the normal learning curve for a guy that's been in the program for two years.
|03/18/2019 - 2:27am||You think as a 2 seed we…||
You think as a 2 seed we should lose in the 2nd round?? To a 7 or 10 seed?
|03/18/2019 - 2:25am||Who would you think has…||
Who would you think has better odds?? Duke, yes. And then....UVA? Ok, I'll buy that. Then, why not Michigan?
They're 4th in Torvik, 5th in kenpom.? They are a top 5 team with a relatively easy draw.? To think they have the 3rd or 4th best chance isn't crazy.?
Nevada isn't any better than a normal 7 seed.? Texas Tech is good.? They're the best 3 seed.? But other than that, it's a favorable draw and they'll have home court advantage if they make the sweet 16.?

It was probably the right call at 13 seconds left.

You don't know much about basketball.? They have to rotate against MSU's pick and roll.? When they didn't rotate aggressively enough in the first game, they gave up dunks left and right to the roll man.? So they rotated onto the roller and forced Winston to find him.? Winston did and the guy hit 7-13.? You just tip your cap to that. You'll always give up a three instead of a dunk.
MSU is an elite offense that forces you to pick your poison and Michigan did the smart thing.?MSU?just had a guy go off today.? Michigan still only gave up 65 pts on 60 possessions (62 on 58 before foul time).? That's great defense against MSU.
Problem today was offense.? Did the usual thing in the second half where Iggy and Poole go hero ball and just jack up threes off the dribble.

Winston isn't a pro but in the college game, he's a top 2 PG.? And he now has the perfect team.? An athletic big that'll finish off the pick and roll (Tillman) and two excellent three and D guys (Goins and McQuaid) that can just sit in the corners and spread the floor for the pick and roll or hit threes when guys help.
