On a crackling, fading out radio station somewhere around mile marker 230 on 1-75, I could barely hear the call that Burke had drained the 3 with 4 seconds left. Stunned everyone who just knew Blue would not overcome the 14 point deficit.
Lesson to all, never quit on your team!
Probably a mixture of Michigan never saying die and Kansas doing their folding in postseason play.
I thought Michigan would have beaten Kansas if they met, but I will say I was watching that game early on and the Wolverines looked BAD but when I saw they were still in it at the half, I knew they had a great shot.
Props to older brother. Hopefully they can go all the way.
<KU -2>That was something.One shot, cost me 50
I like the team, and in the college game a PG can take over. Burke is certainly doing that.
When KU was up 10 with eight to play, I was ready to cash. But yes, I have had my share of those too.
I don't think Louisville can beat Michigan in all honesty. Michigan matches up way to well against them. If a team wants to beat Michigan they need to do what Kansas did and that's pound the inside with the mismatches. Problem is...Louisville wont have any mismatches. They're a pretty small team also. It's gonna be hard to run a full court press the majority of the game against a 4 guard offense also. See The VCU game and how that worked. The last thing you wanna do is speed up a team like Michigan.
The Syracuse game is gonna be hit or miss. Michigan is gonna get a lot of open looks because of the zone. If they're hitting their shots it could get ugly quick for Syracuse because of their lack of scoring ability. Florida ran some zone today and Michigan picked it apart. The last thing you run on a 3 point shooting team? Zone.
IF Michigan can beat Syracuse, then I think they have it.
I thought Syracuse was the best team in the nation for a long time this year, but they seem to at times get lazy and lose to teams they shouldn't lose to at all. Mind boggling, but their brains seem elsewhere at times.
Louisville doesn't scare me. Not a great shooting team, but the big issue is the guards dictate the tempo which is to slash to the basket. That is where the Wolverines need to play tough.
Though I don't think they're great, I am thinking Michigan cuts down the nets at the Georgia Dome next Monday.
