That's 3 big ten games the Hawks choked away. I'll blame it on the inexperience of having your entire team made up of freshmen. Next year, we won't be losing those games.
Marble also had 0 points today He's suffering from turf toe apparently...not exactly sure what it is, but doesn't look good.
Free throws killed us again.
Oh well. NIT this year, NCAA next year and hopefully a top 20 team.

60% from 3 point land keeping TSUN in this game. Hardaway, Jr. is freaking on fire...50% from FT line tonight, 80% from 3PT...hack a 3 time...lol
I think it was appropriate that Trey Burke made a big defensive play on Craft to close up the game
the foul Craft made after was arrogant and flagrant but i was happy the refs didnt call it
Michigan will be #1 if Indiana chokes against Illinois which there is a chance of because nobody can stay on top this year. A good game by both teams that showed why the B1G is the best conference in Division I
That Michigan/Ohio St game last night was awesome. Love seeing Burke and Craft go head to head like that. Hopefully they meet up again in the conference tournament.
Craft is easily the most annoying player in the NCAA. By annoying I mean pesky/gritty/other white-player adjectives.
I'd take him on my team anyday though.
Stoked for the Illinois game tomorrow night! Me and 5 friends are leaving early afternoon, only 2 and a half hour drive and we got a time change in our favor going there. A decent amount of IU fans will be making the trip. Can't wait to be an away fan for the first time ever.
Hard to explain, but walking out of a football stadium with 60,000 people hanging their heads and a couple thousand 'away' fans smiling...such a great feeling.
No matter how many times I watch the end of that game, HOW did the refs not call a foul on EITHER one of the "blocks" against Craft in OT? The first one, they hit both wrists THEN the ball from behind...the second one they hit both wrists THEN the ball from the front. I get not wanting to decide a game, but a foul is a foul whether it is the first 5 minutes or the last 5 seconds. Those were both homer calls if I ever saw them...AND...Craft should have been called for the flagrant, he was pissed that the foul hadn't been called and went after the ballhandler with a vengence hitting him in the head in the process.
The officiating at the end of that game was horrible, period!
