Game 3: Michigan at Villanova Open Thread


#1

#2

No surprises in the posted starting lineups tonight:

Simpson, Poole, Matthews, Brazdeikis, Teske
Gillespie, Booth, Cremo, Paschall, Cosby-Roundtree


#3

Just a couple years ago we were wondering where the defense was and now the coin has flipped to the offense. I hope tonight the shooting offense breaks out starting with JP. Go Blue!


#4

Nova starts 3 seniors and two sophs tonite


#5

Cremo is a grad transfer, which seems different than a senior who’s been in the program a while.


#6

65-63 Michigan! Let’s GO!!!


#7

Do you think Simpson gets booth?


#8

I would think so.


#9

Booth is the key for me tonite. See if Simpson can slow him down when he’s on him.


#10

I’m seeing JP getting more involved tonight. He’s bound to get a breakout game, and this might be it.
But as you all said, Z is probably key tonight.


#11

Few words exchanged between teams before the National Anthem … Zavier Simpson naturally in the middle of it.


#12

Devin Bush would know how to handle this


#13

Jermaine Samuels Jr. actually in the starting lineup for Villanova. Cremo coming off the bench.


#14

Can basketball have a “revenge tour” after this game? Like do we have to win at Nebraska or something?


#15

UNC should count in two weeks!


#16

Good point! F it. REVENGE TOUR!


#17

Sure seems like it. It’s time to rub out their center court logo with our sneakers.


#18

Villanova has an in-house DJ which is in an interesting touch…


#19

I feel like this Michigan team, like last year’s, will play better with a chip on their shoulder.


#20

That may have been the best look of Teske’s career.
