Michigan Takes Care of the Longhorns to Move On

Great. Cool. Awesome. Hooray.

Michigan basketball continues to impress in the NCAA tourney, steamrolling the Longhorns with a barrage of three pointers that put the Longhorns on their heels and shut down any chance of a second half Texas comeback.

Nik Stauskas had 17 points and 8 assists, as the Wolverines made 14 of their 28 shots from three point range, and the only real consolation prize with this is that now another big name program can feel our pain. Michigan will face the winner of Tennessee and Mercer, so really the only good outcome here is if Mercer gets through and somehow beats them Appy State style.

With the way Michigan's playing though... well, I'm not holding my breath.

If you sell out on their 3 point shots, you win.

Good for them. I have them in my Final Four. However, once they get there, I hope they face a slow and painful death at the hands of the Badgers.

I'm a big fan of Wisconsin's team. Bo Ryan? Nah.

 

Love Brust, Dekker, Kaminsky, and of course Jimmy's son.

Stauskas reminds me of all the Eminem look alike douches from the early to mid 2000's who followed Slim Shady's every damn step like some Motor City pied piper.

Can. Not. Stand.

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.
