Indiana vs. Michigan thread
Anyone else going for Michigan? I just like Trey Burkes game and his ability to control a game and hold onto the ball in the final minutes.
I'm rooting for Michigan too, this is one of the 1st games I've actually been pumped to watch this year.
Yeah I know, GR3 and Oladipo going at it will be fun to watch, I also want to see how Burke makes his moves when Victor is on him
Im going for Michigan, but I want to see how Burke will play if Oladipo guards him, Burke is good in the pick and roll, but has a hard time shaking his defenders in isolation plays.
Yeah that's really his only weakness, if he can develop or show potential of good ISO moves, he will be top 10
I said that's his only knock to me as well, he doesn't operate well in ISO situations, but I do believe he's the best PG in college.
Indiana jumpe out to an early 20-7 lead!
WOW that move by Oladipio was nasty!
Is Oladipio the best player in the country right now??? He has to be in the discussion...nobody plays both sides of the floor better than him
No doubt in my mind Indiana is the #1 team in the country. Too many pieces too much depth. Though his stats don't show it, Cody Zeller IS the best big man in the nation.
My pick for the national champion.
I hope that IU drops to a 2 or 3 seed so very few people end up picking them to win it all (obviously most people just go with a 1 seed) b/c there is a very strong chance I, too, will pick them to go all the way.
Quality play at the point, wing, and post. Big time combo of athleticism and shooting ability. That's a team that's built to go all the way.
I hoping Zeller goes nuts so people on this site can stop questioning how good he is.
Meanwhile Oladipo is gonna get a lot of looks in the second round.
Edit- Oladipo is looking like Shumpert on a team with better talent than Georgia Tech.
Oladipo is going to be an absolute steal at the next level, his potential is off the charts.
Oladipo won't make it out of the lottery
He and Lorenzo Brown are the most bizarre projected 2nd round picks I've ever seen.
Both need to go in The Lottery.
Always back Indiana! Hoping Oladipo plays another outstanding game.
Trey Burke needs to SLOW down, he's doing too much
Zeller needs to put his &$#%#&@! hands up when he's posting up. He doesn't make himself a big enough target or demand the ball enough. He should be touching the ball 15 times a half, not 7 or 8.
Crazy putback dunk by Zeller.
And a huge three pointer by Burke when he was in a shooting slump.
BIG shot by Burke!
Trey Burke is a baaaaaaad man.
I take that back about his lack of ISO moves, his stepback was Durant-esque
Trey Burke is the best player in the country. No hi ranked team gets more contribution from a single player than Michigan from Trey Burke. Without Burke I don't know how good they would be.... imagine they had Ryan Harrow, how hi would they be ranked?
Anyone saw Burke play defense?
I dont know about yall, but Tim Hardaway Jr has been extremely disappointing to me this first half. Looks tentative and lacks confidence in his play thus far.
Tim Hardaway is shook by Oladipo, that's why.
That was a nice put back dunk, but I haven't seen anything that stands out with Zeller in this game.
He's a 7-footer who runs like a deer. Works perfectly for an up-tempo team.
Every draft usually have at least a couple of big guys that can run like a deer, but I haven't seen anything else that really translate yet in this game.
You would expect more out of a potential #1 pick though, I want to see Zeller demand the ball in the paint and feast on the low block instead of these cuts to the baskets as in the NBA the big men are much bigger and athletic
You would expect more out of all the potential #1 picks this year. This draft class is weaksauce.
Same thing was said about the 2011 class yet guys like Faried, Leonard, and Irving are young studs
I honestly believe Kelly Olynyk would outplay Zeller.
Even though Cody is a better prospect.
The stars are shining tonight, this is great to watch.
That was a nice turn around jumper. That pick and cut towards the rim giving him a dunk was more Michigan defensive collapse fault then anything.
Glad I recorded this game, GREAT GAME!
Amazing the Burke was rated so low coming out of high school...Dude has ice water in his veins and dosent look like anything fazes him
Whatever his name is shocked me with that drive towards the rim and dunk.
Burks reminds of Kemba Walker a bit. He is just a tad shorter.
If Oladipo made that alley I would've sh!t my pants...
Oh god(big sean voice) I had flashbacks of DWade with that almost alley oop to Oladipo
Oladipo literally just stopped me mid-conversation! If only he would've made that dunk!
"If only he would've made that dunk", it would've been dunk of the year!
YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Zeller just got up!!!!! That one hand put back was Nizzzzzzzzaaaaaaaaaaastyyyyyyy! Sorry guys, but this is an incredible game!
Who's the better athlete: Cody Zeller or Mason Plumlee? Both are 6'11 235
Cody is pretty athletic, but Mason is a different conversation! He has BOUNCE!
Plumlee may have more bounce but I'm pretty sure Plumlee is an inch shorter than Zeller and he has a less than average wingspan.
All of the Plumlees have TRex arms lol.
Miles Plumlee actually was measured with a longer wingspan and standing reach than Tyler Zeller last year. Remember that Cody Zeller and Marshall Plumlee both were measured as having wingspans well below their height at a camp a few years ago. Guessing Cody and Mason have fairly similar dimensions, even if Cody is a bit taller.
Mason is more than likely the better athlete in the conventional sense, just does not have close to the touch or ability that Zeller has. I know Mason has had a great season, just think even with his athleticism, Zeller has much more of a feel for the game as well as a higher NBA ceiling. The Zeller bros. are flat out more skilled than the more athletic bros. Plumlee, but they all have T-Rex arms.
Not to take anything away from Zeller two put back dunks, but Michigan having another defensive collapses not boxing out.
Even though they wont win this game, I really like Trey Burke! Really really like Trey Burke... His poise, size, handle, demeanor, defense, shot, even his hair! I think he's a future star pg in the league.
