Michigan Monday: It's All About The Points

Michigan Basketball played a bad game late on Tuesday night where they only gave up 51 points to UCLA for the entire game.  UCLA and Gonzaga played a classic on Saturday night where UCLA scored a total of 90 points.  Its clear Michigan would be in the National Championship game right now if they had only made their free throws.  😀

Should be a good game tonight with probably the two best teams in the nation all year long.   As you know, I don't like it when other teams find Michigan's weakness.   In football this past season it took 1 game.  In Basketball it was the Illinois game.   Did UCLA put on tape, how to beat Gonzaga? Shooting nearly 60% helps.  

Also a hat tip to the NCAA for fixing a mistake from Tuesday night.  Both games on Saturday started at a decent time, I know it was a Saturday and not a Tuesday but starting a game at 6:00 and 8:30 on Tuesday would have been doable as well.    Tonight's tip is at 9:20.

  • Deep thought: Has Michigan's run through the NCAA taken the focus off of Spring Football?  I would say yes.  I hope they are getting some work done! 
  • Livers had surgery on his foot and full recovery is 6 months.  I guess his injury was much worse then we expected.  Does this effect his NBA Draft status?
  • Big Ten Basketball Transfer news from this past weekend:  Rhode Island Point Guard Fatts Russell and Georgetown's Qudus Wahab both transferred to Maryland.  Illinois landed Florida Center Omar Payne.  
  • It's Masters Week for you golf fans out there! Congrats to Jordan Spieth who got his first PGA Tour win in over 4 years!  Big week for friend of the Blog Augusta J!  Who will be attending a practice round this year.  
  • Asking for a friend, will the Tigers be watchable this year?
