LETS GO...ummm....hmmm....yeah...

Hard to say which team I like least here, but, ok it's not all that hard, the ones in the ugly ass uniforms.
It's a shame we cant beat them and IU in the B1G championship tourney, but you can't have it all.

Tim Hardaway Sr. really knows how to wear a sock hat.

OK, Michigan sucks and all, but that was a pretty friggin' awesome dunk.

of the games on today, this is one I would like to watch, not including the 6:30 tip-off, think this is a good matchup of two teams. Not rooting for anyone, but should be an interesting game, to say the least

Wisky cannot buy a shot right now.

Chris Lauderback's picture

For anyone not able to watch...

Hard to tell how serious it may or may not be but Hardaway Jr. just went back to the locker room with what looked like a sprained ankle. He put up a shot after driving left and his left ankle came down on Carrot Top's foot. 

Chris Lauderback's picture

Aaaand, he's back already.

Thanks for the updates.  Not able to watch.

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Yikes. Wisky is shooting 4-21 18% and yet they're only down 7.

I have Wisconsin losing in the first round of my NCAA bracket. 
Can't wait to see who they play.

Wisconsin takes the tortoise and the hare fable and applies it to basketball...with surprising success

tennbuckeye19's picture

Wisky now shooting an incredible 14% from the field.

Illini players not named Brandon Paul are not impressed.

What a great offensive game:/

For the people that can't watch this game, be glad. This a horrible excuse of a basketball game.

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

Almost stopped watching until Wisconsin made things a little interesting.  TSUN can't be happy being up only 3 with how putrid Wisconsin is shooting.  Nobody can be happy with the 20 minutes of basketball they just watched there.
This is like an episode of Hell's Kitchen where both teams lose.

What a painful game.  Terrible to watch.  Bad for TV and horrible for advertising, only 1 timeout out of 10 used. 

tennbuckeye19's picture

Why burn a Timeout when the teams are shooting 34 and 17%? Why stop the flow and intense pace of the game?

osunut2's picture

Wisky shoots 17% from the floor and is only down 3 at the half? What a terrible half of basketball.

Haven't been watching but just saw the halftime score. I can't imagine how exciting this game has been so far

bhsiba99's picture

what's the score?
 

tennbuckeye19's picture

20-17 UM up at the half.

TheShookster's picture

TTUN - a little, Wisky - a little less

tennbuckeye19's picture

Can we all agree that in a game like this there are no winners. Sure you may have more points at the end of the game, but in no way are you a winner.

osunut2's picture

I certainly don't feel like a winner, after witnessing the first half.

"Without winners, there wouldn't even be any god-d*mned civilization." 

GoBlueBlood's picture

That was the worst half of basketball I have watched all year. I hate Wisconsin's basketball program with a passion. However there is no excuse for Michigan not being up by at least 10 points.
For those not watching this game, continue not watching this game. Literally anything else you are doing today is more entertaining. 

dubjayfootball90's picture

I am chewing on a pen in my cubicle right now. Judging by your comments, I am probably having a lot more fun, haha.

Oh how I would love to see hoke on the sideline in zubaz pants. You know he owns a pair.

GABuckeye's picture

Wisconsin shouldn't be allowed to play basketball.  It is so painful to watch.  

tennbuckeye19's picture

I'd be okay if they didn't play football either.

okiebuck's picture

What a butt ugly game; made even more so by showing that fashion plate Hardaway Sr; every two minutes. Jeez you would think knowing he's be on TV he would look a more presentable; I guess he couldn't find the hoodie. Proves the old saying; you can't buy class.

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Yeah, really rough 1st half offensively for the badgers, but I have a good feeling about the second half. They look good defensively and are getting good shots (for the most part). They need to stop turning it over and they should be okay.

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Watch out, Berggeren made a layup!

tennbuckeye19's picture

Wisky ties it up @ 24.

tennbuckeye19's picture

Wisky takes the lead!

okiebuck's picture

Your right Oregon; and if Wisconsin finds the range on the three ball and gets the lead; UM is in trouble.

"Fate has cards that it don't want to show"

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Wisconsin is doing a good job going at Hardaway and Robinson in the post. They can't guard Evans. 

AJBor41's picture

Just hit refresh on my PC after being away for several minutes and realized it was a live 2nd half score!

CALPOPPY's picture

Jumbotron at the United Center just displayed the upcoming game of the afternoon session as Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Ohio Buckeyes.
That's some high quality trolling.

I'm a hurtin' buckaroo.

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Burke has entered into 'shoot' mode. Over/under on shots in the last 12 minutes is 10.5. I'll take the over. 

osunut2's picture

After struggling to score 17 in the first half, Wisky has already scored 20 points in the 2nd half, with 12 minutes to play.

TUUN has a bunch of good players but is a horrible TEAM!  They have been way over rated  for most of the year.

Glenn Robinson getting abused by a guy that has to shoot jump shots for free throws. That is all.

tennbuckeye19's picture

Just think, next year Um will be minus Burke, Hardaway, and probably Robinson.

BrewstersMillions's picture

Looks like this is the annual "Disappearing act" game for Trey Burke.

Do I come off as arrogant? Shame on me, I was hoping it would more obvious.

BME_Buckeye's picture

Lets go Badgers, F*ck Em' up Bucky.
 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

 

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

I like what I see.  As much as I would like another crack at TSUN, it's always a good day when they lose, so I hope this keeps up.

Weird game

UM is on the ropes; and if they shoot FT's like they did last week; stick a fork in them.

FLOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice flop by Hardaway

This game's not over

okiebuck's picture

The refs let them play in the first half; not so much now

"Fate has cards that it don't want to show"

d1145fresh's picture

I feel like Wisconsin would be the most frustrating team to play against. You know you are better than them but they simply don't miss 3's

tennbuckeye19's picture

I guess you didn't see the 1st half.

d1145fresh's picture

I did and they shot horribly in the first half but what I am saying is they are always in it late in the game although you would think they should be getting blown out

tennbuckeye19's picture

I was just messin' with ya, man. I agree with what you're saying. Their success is a combination of relentless defense, grinding out the shot clock on offensive possessions, and the fact that every guy on the floor can shoot.

d1145fresh's picture

No worries. And yes I would hate playing against them when they drain the shot clock to 5 seconds then a center chucks up a three and it goes in. But watching Michigan lose is also nice to watch. 

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Burke is the only Michigan player with an assist today.
If this lead holds, I would guess it insures a #2 seed for the winner of the potential OSU-MSU game.

Are the badgers in the bonus yet? They need a big time basket here or this game is over....

Nice force by Burke

"Fate has cards that it don't want to show"

tennbuckeye19's picture

I swear Brusewitz has gone from Carrot Top to Kramer.

oregonianbuckeye's picture

tsun went small. Albrecht is in during crunch time and robinson isn't. That makes me laugh.

kr66osu's picture

The way Wisconsin nailed shots right at the end of the shot clock twice was hilarious
Michigan going into the tournament with absolutely no momentum

AJW_16's picture

Yeah I would definitely be concerned if I were them.

Bye bye m*chigan... 

tennbuckeye19's picture

Prediction: MGoBlog will blame this loss on the Zubaz unis.

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Michigan is going into the NCAA tournament with lots of momentum! Maybe they can get paired-up with Akron this time. Mac-to-Mac first round losses would be hilarious. 

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Wisconsin probably a 4 now? tsun a 3 or a 4? Nationally they still get too much credit (like being a 6 seed after getting the 5 seed in the B1G). 

Tim's picture

Every year it seems like Wisconsin works their way up to get a 4 seed, maybe makes the Sweet 16, but is never a real threat to win it all.  I wish the shot clock in college were shorter so that their style wouldn't work as well.

okiebuck's picture

Zubaz no; out coached yes. Oregon said it; they went small and Wisky beat them on the boards.

"Fate has cards that it don't want to show"

tennbuckeye19's picture

Wow. Bo Ryan is 11-1 against John Bielein.

BME_Buckeye's picture

There you go Bucky. F*ck Em!

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

 

b_pbucksfans's picture

That's what you get scUM for ruining OSU's chances to win the B1G conference championship!

oregonianbuckeye's picture

tsun now 6-6 in their last 12 games after being ranked 1, and is 2-6 vs. the top 5 teams in the B1G on the year. 

Jason Priestas's picture

Wow, realized Wisconsin was dangerous, but didn't expect this result. Wolverines finish 6-6 down the stretch after a 20-1 start to the season.

hodge's picture

Still, this worries me.  Michigan is the kind of team that--like us--can be an absolute giant  when they click.  Much like our last loss to Wisconsin rejuvenated our squad, I worry this will do the same to the Wolverines.  If they play up to their potential, they'll be a serious contender.

avail31678's picture

YEah, especially after our beating from them, I am a tad worried about Wisconsin.  But it all comes down to whether we show up for our next big game (MSU likely).  We can beat any team in the B1G when we show up!

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

TSUN definitely did not rise to the occasion today.  You off.  No, actually, you out.

You can't spell chump without putting a little bit of UM in it.
Go Bucks! Beat the corn dogs tonight, and then Sparty/Iowa tomorrow and win it all on Sunday!

It's a good day anytime TSUN gets embarrased :-)

Great to see the team up North knocked out of tournament!  Gotta love that anytime that happens.   Now time for the Bucks to go to work against those Corn Huskers!  Go Bucks!!!
