Kentucky vs. Michigan Game Thread

Really open game here. Fun to watch and so far Marcus Lee for MVP. Kid is playing great.

If Kentucky starts rebounding

If Kentucky starts rebounding on defense this game is over. Michigan can't guard them.

Michigan may be up right now,

Michigan may be up right now, but I can't saw the game looks too good for them. Their initial defense has been OK, but they just can't defend Kentucky at the rim. I don't think Kentucky can really defend Michigan too well, but Michigan may need to be almost perfect on offense to win.

As soon as I make that

As soon as I make that comment, Michigan starts playing better and helping down low more. Looks like this will be a great game.

Randle and Dakari don't mix

Randle and Dakari don't mix well together against these guys. It's forcing Randle to the perimeter.

Stauskas is balling

but I still don't get why Kentucky isn't overplaying his right hand. He is constantly trying to get back over to his strong hand. Every time. No adjustment? Really? Kudos to Nik for getting there, though.

Michigan

Michigan is 3-9 from behind the arc and was tied at half. I still very much like Michigan's chances. Levert needs to get his head out of his ass....

Michgan

Just saying what the commentators stated. I am dying to see the usual back-to-back-to-back 3's fall for Michigan....this is brutal, and I love Walton but if he makes one more pass that makes our shooters have to re-adjust for their 3pt. shot I am going to go crazy.

After review it was

After review it was definitely a 3. You're right. Bad call to count it as 2.

Hell of a pair of defensive

Hell of a pair of defensive plays by LeVert. I can't remember one player ever forcing two jumpballs in such a short stretch of game action. And that was a hell of a block on Randle.

After every Kentucky game,

After every Kentucky game, I'm more convinced that while Randle may not have Jabari's or Wiggins' potential for a superstar, he has less risk of becoming a bust. Footwork + Rebounding usually translate to the next level.

Randle

He interests me a lot because I think he is under used. I don't think anyone is going to complain at this point because they are winning, but he is so superior physically compared to 99% of these guys that it is a joke.I would have liked to see what he looks like featured on the UK team because I think there is more to his game. Obviously they don't play that way, but I think he may have some things he hasn't been able to really show yet. With that said, I'm not sure what he is at the next level. He is obviously big and strong. He goes hard for rebounds and he has a pretty solid touch around the rim. I don't know how much more he improves. If he can get a consistent jump shot that will help, but you can say that for most 4s in the league. I actually think he needs to work on his control with the ball. Right now he basically uses the same spin move which is going to be easy to draw a charge off of and he needs to do a better job with not using his forearms. He actually pushes off a lot to be so strong. I also think he could improve quite a bit with his defensive footwork. He is not going to block shots, but he should be able to move in front of people and keep guys from getting good position.

Unreal

Incredible shot by Aaron Harrison. What a game. People may have been down on Kentucky's season, though damn they are talented. Also, as you can see with Marcus Lee, deep in the front court. Think that killed Michigan in this one, just beat them up down low for the most part. Even so, James Young and Aaron Harrison hit huge long range shots to make them a threat out there. Should be an incredible Final Four, congrats to UK, they earned this game.

What a game, Aaron Harrison won the game, great second half. Sad to see Stauskas lose though.
