    My main desire is a resurgence game from Poole. He’s absurdly talented and so important for our ceiling.

    Secondary: Livers finding his three point stroke again.

    If those two things happen, Michigan’s offense will be rocking and rolling like it was in the first IU game.

    Kinda early for a Friday game?

    Good watch from Jordan Sperber here…

    I personally think this is the wrong way for anyone to defend Michigan ball screens.

    I’d be surprised if Archie doesn’t change up his approach in the rematch. If he doesn’t, could be a recipe for U-M ball screen offense to get back on track

    Mr. Matthews, please go strong to the hole or don’t go at all! No need to look like Bambi in the headlights. And please catch the ball on two feet, take one hard dribble then drive. You are too talented of a player to be making junior varsity errors.

    Mr. Brooks, please shoot the jumper when it’s open. If you do so it adds value to the game, make or miss.

    Mr. Poole, you are a capable driver if you can’t get off your 3 point shot. Don’t forget you can be a valid drop off creator. Also, fall forward on your pull up jumper when releasing.

    Mr. Simpson, make the smart drop off pass if you are buried in the lane on layups. You blew a key layup in the MN game, and be weary of the chase down block on fast breaks. Illinois ate you up on that.

    Mr. Brazdeikis, it’s time you learn to make the efficient pass if the lane is clogged. Pass with assertion. Also, please return to your mentality of being a work horse bruiser and draw contact on your layups to the hoop to get to the FT line.

    Mr. Teske, continue to stay disciplined on Morgan. Wall him up, and continue moving your feet. We can’t have you in foul trouble.

    Coach B, time to sharpen your late game adjustments, especially since you haven’t had to do so at all this season.
