when do we start recruiting this kid? lol
Haven't you heard? Calipari already signed him for $100,000 to the class of 2020.
B1G is tough as shit this year
B1G is an absolute bloodbath this year!!! Who would have thought Wisky would have been undefeated so far in conference play with a win at IU? The conference winner will have atleast 4 to 5 losses IMO. I guess that game at the Kohl Center is bigger than what I originally thought. We need to win the games against Minny and Wisky because we only play them once.
Wiscy has their number, but it also shows that college hoops is a lot more like the NBA than it is like college football. Even really good teams will lose a number of games in a season.
Ryan does more with less than most any coach I know. His players play that system to near perfection.
It is on !
Huge win for Michigan tonight!
Road win over a top 10 team ... yes, please.
Really wanted that win
Illini getting smoked on their own court again ... this time by NW.
GRIII 360 Dunk
And here's the video of the breakaway 360 dunk from ESPN.
On the break, Glenn Robinson III finishes with a 360 dunk.

That dunk make SCTop10? Haven't had a chance to watch
Yes it did
thj's dunk made #3 and grlll was #1
I was a little worried that Hardaway Jr. wouldn't get any recognition for his 2 dunks - one in each half.
But Robinson's dunk definitely was a worthy SportsCenter #1. It caught a lot of people's attention and received quite a bit of praise.
I like his new nickname: GR360.
And recruits have to like how we play and how efficient we are on offense.
No Michigan, but if you enjoy college hoops in general, tomorrow will be awesome.
Line up for tomorrow:
Maryland @ UNC - ESPN
UCONN @ Pitt - ESPN2
Kansas @ Texas - CBS
Missouri @ Florida - ESPN
Creighton @ Wichita St. - ESPN2
Oregon @ UCLA - CBS
Syracuse @ Louisville - ESPN
Ohio St. @ Michigan St. - ESPN
Marquette @ Cincinnati - ESPNU
Gonzaga @ Butler - ESPN
The post players played really well for Michigan against Minnesota. We don't really need a post player to go 1 on 1 when we have GR3, THJ, Burke, and Stauskus already averaging 15 points per game. The Ohio game was a fluke where no one got going and we still almost won.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
We don't "need" a post player that can go 1-on-1 but it would certainly help.
Coach Beilein is currently using a 4-out/1-in as his primary system to space the floor. He occasionally uses s 3-out/2-in system to accommodate 2 bigs but that's the secondary scheme.
Because we have a dominant PG in Burke who is a triple threat, he can create for players on penetration. But it would certainly be nice if we had a big that could take pressure off our guards and forwards. The point is to have some semblance of balance between the backcourt and the frontcourt.
Whereas you consider the Ohio loss a fluke, I consider that a blueprint on how to beat us. If Michigan plays another team (such as Indiana or Louisville) that can disrupt our spacing, it'll be helpful to have bigs who can give us post play. If Michigan gets inside scoring in the half-court, it forces the defense to collapse and give us a window to reestablish our spacing and get good perimeter shots.
Maryland's bball uniforms are as bad as their fball uniforms.

KU is overrated. Please put them on our bracket instead of IU, Louisville or Duke.
Ken Pom thinks you should reconsider.
Even if Kansas is overrated, Kansas is still a (very) good team. And Bill Self is one of the top 5 coaches in the country.
What Bill Self is doing with this roster is nothing short of amazing. This Kansas team is lacking in talent Hence, Self has prioritized defense (which is more about effort and position) rather than offense (which is more about skill).
And this is reflected in the stats. Kansas is 18th in the country in adjusted offensive efficiency but 6th in the country in adjusted defensive efficiency.
Duke is hobbled right now. Ryan Kelly's absence is notable. He was an underrated cog of the Duke machine and the advanced stats indicate his impact. I'm not sure we have an accurate picture of what Duke is without Kelly. And senior SG Seth Curry is also suffering from a lingering injury.
Louisville is actually a better version of Kansas.
I'm still undecided on Indiana. I want to see how we perform against the Hoosiers.
However, Florida seems to be the most balanced team in the nation.
