I don't think I dislike any Big Ten coaches. But Matt Painter is probably my favorite outside of Beilein. Seems candid and utterly normal and, win or lose, I reeeeeally enjoy how they talk about each other's teams after their games.
Anyway, came here because I found out they won, which is probably a relief for them, and am glad for both M and PU that they did.

Clearly I underestimated South Carolina, but to be fair, I didn't realize they had two new rotation players that were both better than most of the others - One guy was coming off an injury and the other from their football team. Their team is not good by any means, but they're good enough to pull some upsets in the SEC.

That said, it was a very fugly game, especially in the first half. Michigan had an absurd number of turnovers, many of which were unforced. South Carolina was getting way too many shots at the rim and also hit some difficult ones like Northwestern, but they also shot and hit enough threes to keep Michigan's defense honest. Again, I'll give the defense some benefit of the doubt given what they've done the rest of the year, and South Carolina had two players that hadn't been playing, but this should motivate them to get better.

Turnovers aside, it was encouraging to see Michigan's offense play so well. South Carolina did speed up the game to make it higher-scoring, but Michigan was able to adjust to it. Poole had a big game, especially in the second half, while Teske, Brazdeikis, and Livers also had really good games.

Because the game was always somewhat (but not really) in doubt, only the main rotation players played. Johns and DeJulius should get some meaningful minutes in the remaining non-con games. Johns would be particularly nice to see emerge, considering Austin Davis' mistakes in limited minutes.

Good win for Sparty today. 



This Seton Hall game is fun. Man, I cannot stand Kentucky. I hope The Hall wins this thing.

The Badgers are in a dog fight with the Warriors. Should be a good second half, based on the first. Lots of recruiting battles on the floor tonight. Most of these kids know each other, going way back. That makes it fun. Great rivalry.

True road wins are so precious in basketball.  It's nice to see the Kyle Ahrens we all saw in the recruiting videos prior to two injuries.  He actually won a national HS dunk contest.  That's the biggest development.
As for Seton Hall's win, no clue why but I've always really liked Seton Hall with no rational explanation.

I don't get UCLA basketball having helmet status.  When Notre Dame or Michigan football, or Kentucky basketball have down stretches, they still take in money, and have huge fan bases.  UCLA has garbage facilities and zero fan base.  Why are they considered a basketball brand school?  They seem more like Minnesota football, in that they had an extended period of greatness a while ago, but derive no current benefit from it, even when the results aren't there, which seems to be the measure of a helmet.

UCLA was awesome when the kids in Westwood were making more money than the men in Milwaukee.

Tough pill to swallow for UW last night. Free throws and turnovers did them in. Seemed like they choked too. Davison missed two (he's 90+%) and Trice had butterfingers.
