Game 16: Michigan at Illinois Open Thread


#21

Not impressed with Illinois’ ball denial/pressure D.


#22

2:10 into the game and Brad Underwood calls his first timeout. Michigan with a quick 7-0 start.


#23

They run really good stuff … that offense works. We all saw the Oklahoma State game. Just not really working at Illinois yet.


#24

Good defense by Teske early.


#25

Doesn’t seem to be much energy in the stadium.


#26

Pretty sure it is still Christmas break there.


#27

hard to get excited about a 4-11 team


#28

Welcome back Isaiah!


#29

Second that!


#30

Livers already with a post fadeaway and a driving and-one layup. Not stuff you’d see at the beginning of the year.


#31

Here’s what I don’t get about those restricted area calls. If the defender doesn’t fall down, is it a foul? It’s only a foul because the defender fell down while playing defense in the restricted area? It just doesn’t really make any sense. Seems like that play should pretty clearly be a no call.

#33

Not as bad as Penn State’s arena for their last home game. The place looked empty.


#34

It’s fun to see Livers come in at the 3 and hunt.


#35

So much for a letdown game


#36

Crazy how many different directions his role can go in the game based on who picks up the first foul.


#37

Bit early…


#38

I think Iggy’s man has at least 2 of their buckets.


#39

Sure, but the effort and execution are there so far. In terms of what the team is doing, they seem focused early on.


#40

How did that hook go in
