Griffin's been in the coach's doghouse a couple times for not playing defense.Nope not Mark Smith, Alan Griffin! Wow: alan 16.7 per game, 8 boards, 2 steals and 2 blocks per game. No way he wouldve lost minutes to Granderson. He shooting high% from 3 , fiedl and nearly 80% from free throw line. Damn that hurts.
Only if they base on percentage. We sweep our games and Mich loses to us...17-3 vs 15-2.We can put any talk of winning the conference regular season in the garbage unless Michigan collapses in the next 44 seconds
Also got benched vs Miamireally? Still getn 2 steals and 8 boards per game. In a zone defense. Uh, thats wild.
Agreed. Even with a loss to Michigan if we win out we are a 1 seed with a victory over Ohio St. I hope that makes sense.I really think this helps Illinois to the 1 line. Now beat just tOSU and your a 1. If tOSU had won this game we would have to beat them both to get a 1 seed.
Yep, if we finish out the conference season 3-2, that’s a pretty strong finish. Though, in that situation, we very likely do not earn a 1 seed.We still have games at Ohio State, at Michigan, and at Wisconsin....not likely we end with 3 conference losses. Really, there is no shame if we go 1-2 if the games are contested. Wicked conference this year.
They would not be even in a scenario where we win out and scUM only losses to us. They are going to play 2 less games winning percentage is going to determine the championship we would end up second. We would have beaten scUM, but their ploy to avoid playing us right after their self employed break will have worked.I want to beat them both and win the Big Ten Conference title! that is the most important and best goal this team can have. to be the outright Big Ten champs for the first time since 2004/ 2005 Big Ten Championship. Thats step one on the check list, win out in league.
Improving? They beat IU yesterday and have lost 6 of their last 9 games. I mean it's a decent win against IU but they are not improving.Michigan's remaining games:
vs. #11 Iowa
vs. #5 Illinois
vs. Michigan State
at Michigan State
Obviously this all depends on us winning out and beating Michigan, and we REALLY needed OSU to win today ... but it ain't over 'til it's over! When Iowa gets hot, they can beat anyone. IU is likely to start imploding, so I am not counting on them, lol. Then, that leaves two rivalry games with an improving MSU team. We only need them to lose once.
His FG% and 3p% are way below Grandison. If was playing the same role Grandison is playing for us, his numbers would be way worse. It's possible his percentages would be higher in that role, but he wasn't willing to play that role so, that's that.Nope not Mark Smith, Alan Griffin! Wow: alan 16.7 per game, 8 boards, 2 steals and 2 blocks per game. No way he wouldve lost minutes to Granderson. He shooting high% from 3 , fiedl and nearly 80% from free throw line. Damn that hurts.
I don't see us falling below a 2 seed unless we go 1-4. 2-3 probably still puts us at a 2 seed. I mean are you really going to say there are a legit 8 teams better than us if we go 2-3.Current seed predictions depending on how we close out the season:
5-0/4-1: 1 seed
3-2: 2 seed
2-3: 3 seed
1-4: 4 seed
0-5: 5 seed
NBA isn't known for defense anymore, so he might be fine. I can't find him anywhere on any mock draft this or next year. Syracuse isn't currently a tourney team. They're on Lunardi's nest four out. Only one win against a ranked opponent.Wow 2 monthss ago. I wonder if he'll ever get that privilege chip off his shoulder. We know who is Daddy is, man thats tuff, poor rich, nba daddies kid.. So much talent. It'll probably play well in NBA though!
