Michigan Monday: Season Over

Michigan Basketball dropped another road game on Sunday afternoon.   This time to the talented and co-Big Ten Champions Maryland Terrapins.   DD played well off the bench, but that was pretty much it for the Wolverines.   It was the same old story,  X was turning the ball over, Teske was missing low post shots, and the 3 ball wasn't going in.    That was the bad news.

The good news is, the post season will only have neutral site games, which Michigan has excelled at the last few years.   Another fun fact is Michigan's schedule this year was rated the toughest in the country by KenPom.

Iggy where did you go?

After you think about Michigan Basketball's off season, this was a successful year for the program.  Michigan lost Poole, Iggy, Matthews and it's head coach John Beilein in the summer.   In a Big Ten, where Cassius Winston comes back for his senior year at MSU, Iggy heads to NBA as a freshman and ends up playing the entire year in the G-League for a dreadful Knicks organization.

Iggy has played well for the Weschester Knicks and recently had a couple 30+ games while averaging over 20 points per in the G-League.   If he had stayed in Ann Arbor, this team could have probably been a top 10 team.  I guess that is how the ball bounces.

If Michigan can find its shooting, hopefully it can make a deep run in both tournaments.

  • MSU, Wisconsin, and Maryland shared the Big Ten regular season title.  

  • Michigan plays Rutgers in Indy on Thursday in the 2nd round of the Big Ten Tournament.  If they win, they will play Wisconsin in the 3rd round.   

  • Michigan seemed to have made a positive impact on the 3 TE's that were in town this weekend.  TE is a big priority in the 21 class.
