I totally agree, and believe he will be able to guard him effectively. This is definitely a match-up NBA scouts are looking forward to watching.
What if we do what we've been doing all season? Let our 4 guards penetrate and create....find open teammates and simply dominate the opposition.

Don't follow UM basketball that much, but I hope they destroy OSU this weekend. Also, looks like Meyer will have a decent amount of football recruits there including Damon Webb.
Does the # 1 seed always get the closest venue to their campus for the first two rounds?

Yes, the higher ranked team usually gets the better venue geographically. Ex. If UM is ranked #1 and Indiana is ranked #2 and Indianapolis is a regional venue UM would most likely get the nod for that site as they are higher ranked. This kind of thing has happened quite a bit with ACC teams over the years.

Just got home and starting to rewatch game on my DVR. Didn't look great tonight but if all our "letdown" games are 15 point wins then I won't mind.
And then there were three ...

Put an asterisk by 'Zona!
yep. I don't care what anyone says, Colorado beat them
Duke's PF Ryan Kelly has aggravated a previous injury. He is expected to miss at least 2 weeks but could miss as many as 6 weeks.

That's gonna hurt Duke pretty bad. I'm not sure what their depth is like at the 4, but either way .. Kelly can play.
Hopefully NC State shows up to ball Saturday and they beat Duke.
It's pretty irrelevant for us. We aren't playing Duke and this is basketball so being the only undefeated team means nothing. It's extremely unlikely either them or us will finish the season unbeaten.
The upcoming games, @OSU and @Minnesota will be the first legit tests in a hostile road environment and those games will show us what this team is made of.
I agree. These next two games are going to be tough. Ohio State might not be as good as they've been the last few years, but they are very good at home. Since 2008, they've lost 7 home games total:
- 2008: West Virginia, #7 MSU, #16 Illinois
- 2009: #4 Purdue
- 2010: none
- 2011: #12 MSU, #15 Wisconsin
- 2012: #9 Kansas
So if we exclude this season since it's just underway, that's 5 home Big Ten losses in 4 years.
Not irrelevant at all for Michigan. While Michigan doesn't play Duke and being undefeated ultimately isn't going to happen, a win for NCST over the #1 team in the country helps our resume since we have played them and won.
It's still pretty irrelevant, I mean it matters, yes, in the sense that it may have a tiny effect on the team down the road. But that applies to a lot of things that we probably aren't going to discuss or worry about too much.sitting here. We played 12 Division I teams out of conference, are you telling me you keep track of all their results and injuries and those of their opponents?
Let's be real here, and this gets to what I meant, it's a very, very peripheral concern. There's no point in some sort of dick-waving contest with Duke on who the no.1 team in the country is. The reality is that if we win the Big Ten conference we will be a #1 seed. That's the task at hand and it's gonna be far from easy. Duke? Let's worry about Ohio State and Minnesota, then Illinois, then Indiana, then Wisconsin, then MSU,
I don't have to keep track of Michigan's opponents as MGoBlog does a weekly write up called "Opponent Watch." I couldn't care less about being number 1 or Duke in general, but if we are going to root for someone we might as well root for a former opponent to beat Duke. It has nothing to do with being #1 or being the last standing undefeated team, but everything to do with Michigan's RPI.
I agree that the focus should be on the Big Ten conference play at this point, but if we don't win the conference then those top 50 RPI wins do nothing but help Michigan secure as high a seed in the tournament as possible.
Upset alert in Eugene. Oregon beating Arizona by 11 points at the half.
Oregon upsets the undefeated Arizona Wildcats 70-66
I am knocking on wood this very moment, but MSU had a lackluster win over Iowa this evening. I am anxious to play them and blast the crap out of them! They have hardly looked impressive.
"We're here to preserve democracy, not practice it." Go Army! Go Blue!
East Lansing will be a tough win, but the Ann Arbor game could be a blowout the way they're playing. That being said, I have no doubt Izzo will turn it around soon and have them motivated for the Michigan games.
