Posted on Posted in Big Ten Conference, Michigan Basketball

In today’s day and age, slowing down and letting things come to you isn’t exactly the status quo. Getting an opportunity and jumping to it as quickly as possible, even if you may not be entirely ready, is something we are told to do because you never know when that chance will come again. This is reality for D.J. Wilson and Moritz Wagner. The starting front […]

Posted on Posted in Michigan Basketball

As of late, the Michigan Wolverines have controlled their own destiny – so why not them? Let’s take a second to step back in time. Late January was moving into early February, and the Michigan basketball team had just lost to Ohio State at home, a game they should of had no business losing. At least, that’s what you would think now. Back then, it wasn’t […]

Posted on Posted in Michigan Basketball, Opinion

Michigan has some hope after thrashing Michigan State on Tuesday night by 29 points. As I walked through the front doors of the Crisler Center last night, I accidentally bumped shoulders with someone and apologized for running into them. The man turned to me and said, “It’s alright, Go Blue! This is the night Michigan turns their season around.” In a season full of ups-and-downs […]

Time is running out on Michigan and its seniors

Posted on Posted in Big Ten, Michigan Basketball, Opinion

For the third year in a row, a trip to NCAA Tournament is questionable for the Michigan Wolverines.  On Feb. 23rd, 2014, Nik Stauskas exploded in the second half, tallying 25 points to lead Michigan to its first season series sweep of Michigan State since 2011.

After looking solid for most of the contest, Michigan fell short at Wisconsin, losing by a final score of 68-64. Michigan collected a much needed win against Nebraska this past weekend, but couldn’t secure the big upset in the Kohl Center tonight. A win over the 17th ranked Wisconsin Badgers would have surely boosted their NCAA tournament resume. It was another good effort with no reward […]
