Michigan shows major flash of hope in big win over Michigan State

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 […]

Wolverines lose heartbreaker to Buckeyes

Posted on Posted in Big Ten, Big Ten Conference, Michigan Basketball, TBHR

Absolutely pathetic. That’s the only way I can summarize Michigan’s performance from last night. After a tough loss against Michigan State on Sunday, the Wolverines returned to Ann Arbor to face its other rival, Ohio State on Saturday. Just like in East Lansing, senior Derrick Walton was the only player who stepped up for the Wolverines (14-9, 5-6 Big Ten), who lost 70-66 to the […]

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. It was the Wolverines’ sixth win in the last eight tries against the Spartans. During that stretch, Michigan booked a trip to […]

After a frustrating “flu-filled” loss at Michigan State, John Beilein must rally the troops once again. When Michigan dropped a game on the road to Wisconsin, they bounced back to beat Illinois […]

Breslin Center woes continue for Wolverines

Posted on Posted in Michigan Basketball

The Michigan basketball team traveled to East Lansing Sunday looking to end a four game skid against the Michigan State Spartans, but alas, it was not meant to be. The Breslin Center curse is still alive and well. The Wolverines were lack luster from tip-off and never could match the intensity of the Spartans, who defeated Michigan 70-62. Michigan drops to 14-8 and 4-5 in […]
