"I really can't I just keep I just keep wanting to say like mucho blocks for testing here just like it just I'm kinda glad bike through that out there I don't know why he did very strange choice but I'm I'm really happy about it it means a lot I don't know what it means though so might my second team to reiterate Derek Walton Muhammad Ali Abdul Rachman care subvert that Novak Jordan Morgan okay I like it the girl at the greedy team manager anything already not already lotus lot of over chairs in that group yeah yeah they get mucho vote seventy mucho great that's good that's good Mike what he got for us brown so what can brown do for you sold I I think I had a fire I think I I'm Waco I think I held tell Michael though I think I side with Zack on the first team I think I've I think I'd slot Iggy in there over Novak you can't you can't discredit or discount what Novak meant to the program as it was kind of getting to where it is now it at the beginning part of the decade under B. line just plain I meet just out of position didn't belong playing there but he did and he did it well and he again is one of those foundational pieces but I mean the numbers and the numbers favor you know go in eighties favor quite by quite a bit as a score talent wise I mean it's it's pretty obvious so I think I would give the nod to eighty at the for the other the other four spots for both you guys were the same and I would I would have them the same as well yeah and that second line what was the difference is you had you had some of you I think I like Zaks approach to as true point guards I think you to put later Simpson and Eric Walton on the same grew I know it's kind of how it's done like when they when they do all big ten are all America there's no it's kind of position list but I I like the I like the positional integrity a little bit too I would go with Walton over Simpson at this point you know we'll see the only the only what twelve to his left of this decade I guess so now Xavier has a chance to read to fit to fix some of the issues he's had this year so I I like Walton there ahead of him I think my my list looks more like Zaks because of the positions and trying to get guys that one through five I think for me I was gonna do a third team and so I wanna make sure that they were Sims and got on my second team but if you want to make the argument because I said we started off here that I wanted to be have some positional integrity they should have to point guards I get on board with if you drop Simpson from the list and put on a homily Barack man I yeah I mean I can make some that makes sense I mean largest law as I just kind of explain the I I just love I loved everything about them what he did and again it was it was kind of a combination of like a Novak in an Iggy he was not only like this kind of this inspirational story wasn't a big time recruit wasn't even thought of probably is a guy who's going to play a ton of Michigan and became one of the one of the go to guy is very very talented I think what it even had a Cup of coffee in the NBA for a little bit I don't know I know he was looked at I think is a highly team no I thought he was the G. league okay but me I would not play in the actual league okay what's again just kind of speaks to the development of what he was able to become a Michigan so I like I like that that break down or that that lay out of positions better for the one through five you guys have a different what was your post players in the so I went with I don't have no back in Morgan on my second team okay and Mike had okay yeah be Morgan Teske right I think I'd go Teske I think I would go Teske over J. mall man that one's really because that's the closest one out of all of them to me from the differences that you guys had that one yes Teske tell the look at their numbers that might that might be the the might be the deciding factor for me because I I I like a lot about what both of them did in terms of on court in just their presence I do think Teske had better numbers I know for a fact is better blocking and rebounding numbers not not quite as certain about scoring margin blocks for Teske moot Joe yeah yeah I think I'll go I go to ask if I was if I was breaking the tie a little bit there between between what you guys had I mean obviously not gonna be a ton of difference is there some no brainer as you guys talked about the no brainer is on the first team that everybody's gonna have but yeah pretty close I mean I think of most people casual fan someone in the media came up with the missions to you know to all tie all decade teams are gonna be pretty similar there's not a lot of other guys you could kind of you can pull into the discussion I don't think I guess what I'm mageary what his run just was too short yeah probably I mean the impact was like six or seven games freshman year yeah then you suspended what midway through date or just the one we saw the impact he had in those games was was huge tournament run but yep just two short too short lived to a to beat out you know you're in you're all contributors like Teske in and Jordan Morgan yeah I like those teams man canister man speaks to how good they've been because there's a lot of really good players on their own these are thinking back to what what they did on the court and the kind of success they had a much winning they did yeah pretty impressive might my third team would cause Michael pulls hair out if you put this team on the court by that because a lot of the I mean I I've been in this this studio enough to know which flicker th drive you nuts judge Jordan pull on it yep it's David Simpson Jordan pool Zac Irvine okay let Robinson the third okay and John Teske it's the all up and down frustrate Michaels bath team it is that we got hit robin thing is kind of that that sick man to a loss of this I came around and Ackerman for me finished off on a high note so I'm I'm fine with Ackerman during pull never came around and I never came round in your pool Glen Robinson the third I don't really fall Glenn Robinson the third I think you should leave back I should come back after his facial leftovers freshman year when all his like all all of the getting first round grades yeah his second year I'm not really I don't I'm not really down and when I was a third what he what he was was not what he we thought he could be but that's a little bit of he didn't have the ball handling skills to be a some of the control cream from self off the dribble but he's still a very good shooter very good rebounder a great dunker cell I don't know much I don't know much would you say I don't know much yeah mucho issue with him Jordan pool you're right Jordan pull in and I didn't so leave leave on the best of terms real quick Teske Morgan comparisons interesting this task is numbers were so bad as a freshman yeah that is averages are below Morgan in both points and rebounds for his career okay Morgan didn't plays a freshman Richard well okay so for four years of playing yeah okay that that's that's right he was a fifth your guy but yes has these numbers were I mean just in play he just he didn't start any games as a freshman only average three minutes a game but that that we didn't start a turn as a sophomore either two games yeah so the those number those really hurt his overall average in terms of like when you look at his car but is his last two seasons are far better than any two seasons that Morgan put together so I'll just kind of interesting because of how sparingly he was used early on in his career versus what he's doing now but I still think I would go Teske to give the edge all right when we come back transitional little bits got some more Michigan football talk about this and somehow does for certain fifty W. to get to get coming in the in nineteen seventy nine reporter at this again from Colorado Avalanche by day at the.

"That was exactly your Simpson very distinct to the port young may always has been always has and always will be but for me Jamie you know the thing that I that I liked about you know what he just said that brief little interview that we had there's he talked about getting you know having the relationships with the players where again he can then hold them accountable on the core because as a point guard who was a little bit more vocal as I was it's easy for teammates other people to think that you're just yelling at him you're just harping on on you're not you're not doing it just like a coach isn't doing it because they're angry at you or their meds because that's what you need to do in order to win or to run the play correctly or to be in the right spot so you know I really like that he he touched upon that because you know I think you were talking about it with things like Chris Paul or somebody last year that we want that new team they were used to him yell at them right yeah control the way that he was and so that can work for and against you add that leader if people are buying Indian you're not winning and things are going in the right direction people can start to have a distaste for you real quickly but of course like you said he's you know they have the friendships off the court they know that again he always has the team's best interest at heart so that's why he can he does what he does to lead and he's allowed to do that because the players trust Adam they believe in him well I mean he's been a great leader ever since he took over the point guard position me he had to go get it John breed I meet him go get deposition not we had to work to be the starting point guard I mean it wasn't just handed over to him and he remembers how hard he had to work to get that position so he's gonna eight and was taken out of hand lately right so I mean he may he had three guys running point any rotated and sometimes there wasn't any day any remembers that no no no no you're right and I even remember Jamie I when that when that season verse started I voted for I thought Rockman yeah I would be the point guard right because I said at the end of the game who is the guy that we usually put the ball in his hands when it was Muhammad Ali Abdul Rachman but because codes be line again he went through the different ups and downs with Xavier but like you said because they were fought for that position he earned it he won it now he does he's won the respect of all those teammates the young guys who come in they have no choice but to respect him because of what he's done here over the past few years so again he is a little bit quieter with the media he's a man of few words but when he does speak you know it has a lot of meaning to it yeah an hour you know I like that we used to stay alive I like it was good my guy is John Teske Friday.

"I think we need a big big player and there's been so many contracts have been going on this year we got to find somebody and I really like to point earlier in the show about drafting we don't dress well I'd love to hear what he had to say about that well drafting is always the key we did waive it the the the the the pistons didn't as as Matt would say didn't throw the season away they they they decided to play and make the playoffs so yeah if you're gonna dress if you if you were looking to get somebody good in the draft you got to be and you got to be in the low tens in it with him and with him being one of the worst teams in the league to get one of those high flying of rookies come out and play and be a part of your system and let the pistons are an organization that wants to win now it's it's a very prideful organization so in the Detroit I don't think the Detroit fans will put up with that we just throw season away to get a draft pick and again we've always that's that's kind of been the problem with the prisons as we've been bad but not quite bad enough right you're not getting a top five pick but we've always been kind in that eight to fifteen range which is tougher to get you know those sure fire guide you know one through three one through five is a much higher percentage of hitting on one of those home run kind of guys we've been a little bit further back which again you can still find them there but it's fewer and further between we've we've missed on a few we've met yeah what happened out of the Mitchell old green with that I worked with dad at the New York Mets I've been watching him the line was talking to him when he was in high school that was one of the first things were I I met you know had a a good relationship with his dad because he goes you're you're the missing got around the office right like yep so we started talking about he was asking about code the line obviously he ended up going to Louisville but that's that's certainly not the only one that we've missed out on there's been a few of them but you know that's one thing is either going to have to build through the draft more you're gonna get this isn't a free agent destination so you're gonna have to if you are going to get a big star to come here like Blake Griffin you gotta trade form right so you could lock I mean it's got bad injury and we're gonna have to trade for a big star to come here we're going to have to have as said that a star with you know a team wants to you know for trade we're not gonna necessarily land so are you doing get you got to get rid of Blake whoever is willing to take Blake really or I don't think anybody wants Drummond I don't think anybody I think we're all planning for two years from now Jim okay I think everything's because that's when Drummond you know Reggie comes off the book this year Drummond comes off next year and like the year after so you've got Blake in his last year of his contract but you'll have those other two big ones off the books where you'll have some some money to throw got money to play did you have did you got time you got the money to go around Blake will be in the last year of his deal so again if he he could be expiring contracts are always valuable assets so he could be a valuable asset that way or maybe again if we can couple one or two good players to go along with him maybe then that's a good season that you can build on on my own watching the heat play the Orlando Magic right now eleven at some really you back into it now now now I said the heat are playing so that means whose play Duncan right that's the only reason you get and there's guys all over I was watching Derek Walton play with the LA graders the other day Jordan pool had another twenty point game right Mar Muhammad Ali Abdul rock my was blaming sleeveless what they were all on the highlight reel yes I didn't have to watch and they showed the ball Jordan Paul was very zero but I was like wow join get a lot of TV they're playing really well I was like you when I was seen in Jordan pool going there you go where was the and you know what I'm saying is that consistency I just looking for but Hey everybody peaks at different times of their of their life and also again it's a different game once you get to that next level right play differently it's a different type of game and some guys styles fit but you know fit better with one versus the other that's why you see now a ton of great college players who they're game doesn't translate to the NBA it's just again sometimes the different fit right there you go well we need to go to a break when we come back you may have a special guest star it was into the end zone this is the Ms own.

"Probably losing Charles Matthews. I I say, you know, the longer it goes on the longer. I wonder you know, is he waiting for something he is they're actually decision here because the plan in his words he was always treating the season like his last season. Of course, he didn't get the banners that he wanted. And it's not like there's a lucrative NBA opportunity awaiting. It's going to be an uphill battle. You know, he's not projected to be. I think he's projected to be late second round pick by almost everybody. Now, he could play his way up certainly if seen that movie before. But he's twenty three has a degree. If I were in his family, and he asked me for advice. I would say. Go you got your degree? You can always go back to it. You know, you've you've done you've done your four years in college. You certainly made a lasting impact. Go make it on your own. So I expect him to go. Frankly, I I'd put the odds at him returning. Maybe. Five percent. Two percent. Not zero but pretty low. You know, an AB line. Even said, we expect him to go pro. I don't think he's not one of those guys who says that. If he hadn't checked it almost snorted. They're your that one. Yeah. He kinda doodle sort of their tongue guy caught. It's whatever excuse you wanna use? Okay. So I expect him to go pro. So they need a new start of their. And that's where thanks get interesting. Do you? Because they I think abors Davis beeline. It said he feels like steak is a small forward. He said that throughout the year. Now, he's good rebound. First of all forward, five point, four rebounds. You know, able to defend some of the big men. But he could be a natural fit at the three. He very well. Could go pro I don't you know, if if I were if I were an advisor of him. I'd say, well how much better do you think you can do next year? And michigan. Is he averaged fourteen point eight points, five point, four rebounds. He was the big ten freshman of the year. Second team all big ten. What is the next step in beeline system meat is he gonna shoot forty one percent from three again. I'm sorry. Thirty nine thirty nine percent from three that's pretty good. He's not a shooter. He was never. I mean, he can shoot. But he was never a a considered a three point shooting guy. He was considered gets to the rim. Bucket getting type. So I would look big question frame is what can what can it be better at? He's jacked someone someone tweet. He's got to get stronger. No, he doesn't student twenty pounds all muscle. If you if you want to get him bigger and stronger, you're changing who he is as a player. Maybe maybe I thought his defense is actually pretty good all season. He really bought in on defense. Probably could be better as a pastor. Shot blocker, maybe especially if he moves to three. You know? So so I guess there's some things, but he was really good. And I think the big question is where does he get better? Because there's no nothing obvious just doing it more and doing it more consistently. I mean, he had the second most points in freshman history. The only guy with more is Jalen rose. More than Webber more than Mike McGee more than Trey Burke, more than many Harris more than Nick staus gifts any freshman. You wanna you wanna name except Jalen rose? So he's starting three you probably feel good about that. Because he probably carry a big minute load. Six seven fits a position. Well. But you know, Jalen Wilson. Kind of strikes me as a little bit more of a force, maybe badgers, your three. But that's where they have extra. Attrition. They might it seems like they've got a lot of big men. Not a lot of wing to three types some of. That's just the way things go I Adrian Nunez player. Forgot to mention not sure what not sure what his. His. Not sure what his role is going to be next year. Just because he played so little this year. It's hard to tell he was someone they had to learn a lot of basketball. He's always been a great shooter. But even in high school, he wasn't averaging double figures, which is kind of bizarre. I think when he went to prep school he did. But he is he's never been this dominant player. Michigan is kind of taken a taking a project chance there. So we'll see what he can do. But he's got the length to play three. If needed six foot five. And frankly, we saw Ahah livers play a little bit of the three. It didn't look. Didn't look on reasonable. But they've got a lot of forwards not a lot of threes. So if there is a market for over crude. I think the two three kind of combo type player is what they need because we don't know a badge of is going to look like either at the four I think you feel really good there. I mean, you got if you want him at the four Isaiah livers. I think he's he's a great. He could be you know, second or third team all big ten at the four big thing with him is just playing aggressive every night. I think he started to find that. Season with seven points nine points a game three point nine rebounds a game. In you know, bench off the bench. That's that's solid. He could be a double digit score. And he's just constantly seeing the game a little bit better. And all he was always he's always been an unselfish guy. Great great quote. You know, if I want to get a phone to hear what what players think Charles Matthews, I go I go straight delivers. Or if I want to hear what players think has ever since I go straight delivered. So he's he loves his teammates. He loves being here. And I think I could very well. See him have a breakout junior season. You know, he's played a lot already hasn't done. You know, as it hasn't made this incredible impression, but probably their best dunker probably one of the best shooters. Really good length. Really good athleticism key could be the next San man project. Also, the four Brandon Johns. I know he played the backup five this year. He was always supposed to be a backup for though, he's six eight to twenty five. High profile recruit. There's just a learning curve and that happens. I mean, he played at a small school. He he played a you was good. That's why he was a high profile recruit. But I think there's I think fancy some of these freshmen play, and they're like, why can't all the freshmen be like that. And it's it's just not how it goes. Think back to John as a freshman or Xavier Simpson as a freshman or Muhammad Ali Abdul Rachman as a freshman. Dunkin Robinson was playing d three is a freshman mo- Wagner. Nothing DJ Wilson nothing. So it happens it happens. And then they then they get better. So I think brand John's could be another guy breakout player. And then Jalen Wilson. I think he's one of those freshmen I think can make an incident packed. He's top fifty guy top fifty recruit kind of fell a little bit in the rankings. Not sure I haven't followed enough to know if that's warranted or other players past him or not. But you know, he's six eight to twenty you could dunk can score think he can defend Evan. Watched those usually don't make the highlights, but. You know, I think I think the forest probably their their other than point guard probably their best position, assuming stays he could go and that would that would be a loss at the five got John esky feel good about him. Don't you at this point? Yeah. Nine point five point seven point, zero rebounds. Led the big ten in blocks. I can't ask for much more. Well, though, you can had to blocks two blocks game. Thinking it up fifth in school history in blocks in a season. I mean, that's that's incredible. Given what we saw from John before he's improved five inches on his vertical. Leap. They do a drill where they run as many links of the court as they can in three minutes. And he's John Anderson told me the average is around or a good point guard is in guard type is going to be around twenty nine. Intest ski when he first did it was twenty three. So that means he was getting out outran by. What? Twenty percent. There are people that were that were run in twenty percent faster than him. He's got he's got it up to twenty six. So he's just getting faster. Getting stronger they weren't ad in wait for him. He was already at a good weight, but a little bit more toned. I just see his mentality is growing. But it's Chris young will point out. It's not all the way there yet. There's still some layups. There's still some quiet moments. Eric in South Carolina, screaming Tillis faces blue. Gotta be faster gotta be quicker. To be ready to slow down some of these athletic bigs, I think he did a better job than than some give him credit for. I mean, I didn't see much from Taylor cook. And look at Garza the second time, I will play them, you know, and and some of these some of these players three Coen's hat is number. But some of these guys. Thing task. You did a really nice job. I think I mean, you know us. Probably one of the top ten or so defensive centers in the in the nation. Which is a pretty stacked list. See I thought lot lots to like they're so anyway, those that's probably a Colin Casselton just keep getting bigger. He's got the exact prototype in my my eyes as Wagner. You know, I think he can shoot he can probably Wagner DJ Wilson hybrid because you can block shots to. Yeah. So so anyway, I o in Austin Davis continues to think he's fourth on the depth chart right now at center. So I don't know what what I didn't see enough the past couple of months to know what his path to more playing time is. But that's why I'm not the coach I'm not in those practices. I'm not telling telling anybody what to do. Anyway, we're gonna hit a break. Got a few more minutes on the show before we head to the Tigers broadcast. But.

"Back in Chicago be fourth quarter. Final game of the day of the big ten tournament. The twenty second big ten tournament. It started at the United Center so many years ago alongside Doug Gottlieb. I'm Greg Daniels. Michigan on the verge of punching the fourth ticket to the semifinals tomorrow leading Iowa seventy two to forty eight dominating in nearly every facet of the game. Outscoring Iowa's bench nineteen nine. That's the Hawkeyes. Been put up thirty last night against Illinois, fast-break points, eleven to two and steals. Michigan nine to Iowa four. Agri given past it. It's game. They've been really impressive. Yeah. Passing the defense. And I I don't I wouldn't say they'd had chances, but missing free throws missing labs. That's made it such a wide margin. Michigan's a better team they played better tonight. But I was cost themselves. Any hope it being within arm's distance right now with this Rico's misled three and a half to play Iowa into their half court set. Luca Garza pick and roll Bohannon. Good show by Austin Davis back to on the baseline is jumpers. No, good rebound. Jordan pool. Michigan's guards do a good job of getting in and helping out on the glass. Rebound very well. They do. So Michigan will advance barring some sort of fantastic collapse to take on the gophers of Minnesota was talk about that match up a little bit. I saw that match in person called for compass media networks, and it was actually machine kept him at arm's distance most the first half and Minnesota made made a big run got to within two. And then John tests you hit a head at three. I think poo poo pool hitting threes. Adrian Simpson hit a three and then it became kind of lights out, but they were making shots early. And then got little failed. The difference in the makeup of that team is Jordan Murphy. We had a spectacular Neidl. We call the game spectacular. Like, that's a tough match up. The Michigan at the power forward position sabres Simpson. Isaiah livers go off to a big an from the Michigan crowd as does Jordan pool. Fantail players. He just fun to watch runs a team. He's learned to make a shot has that running hook shot. Incredible defensive player. Boss, misses the pick and pop three Johns pulled down the rebound is a very good player. He has gotten one shot. I believe today one. They just have not loud met any airspace. At all David Julius moves it to Brandon John's John's couple dribbles to the baseline now holds it up. Giving back to the Julius Julius to John's looking for Austin Davis on the inside instead Johnson, Jack three no good. Rebound to Isaiah boss. And Craner down a two minutes to play Michigan leading at seventy two to forty eight. Lees camp with the dribble. Looks download a creature creature catches at deep turns right hand. Push kind of a half hook shot half shotput. No, good rebound. Charles matthews. Minnesota's Michigan takes time out here. Minnesota's sort of shifted recently where the ball has been in the hands of Amir Coffey even more than it was. I'm not sure if it's more so than when you saw that matchup does that change the match ups at all or the way that is twenty point game in a row, and he's he's been playing outstanding for for Minnesota. I think that this is a tough match-up against Michigan. Because he's got a lengthy legal and athleticism. And that's what the Michigan wings again. If you're looking for where you're looking for a way of Minnesota may have an advantage there more athletic at the four and five. You know, we we mentioned earlier. Murphy, but also Daniel or Toro is he's very very athletic. Now, he can cover on switches can cover test e away from the basketball. He's really growing. He's a freshman, but getting better Julius steps into three off a hesitation, he missed it. And the rebound comes down to the hawk is. They don't have is. They don't have a placate Austin ash misses the three point shot and Michigan clears the rebound ahead. They'd renew news. Unita's on the nearside CJ bear will dribble. It back to point handed off to Julius eighty seconds to play Michigan comfortably in the lead. Seventy two to forty eight over the hawk is three point shot out of the way. No, good procedure. Baird rebound claimed by Austin aspirin, Iowa Seagate bears. Get went up I touch on the rights for three. They'll always be able to say scored in Jordan's house. Correct. With some really colorful shoes. Very bright. The Julius dumps at deep Austin Davis puts it up in an off the window for Michigan. Seventy four fifty one with forty six seconds to play. Isn't mazing with John B lines done. It really is. I mean, look at what they lost some last year. Yeah. Fifty six percent of the scoring. Muhammad Ali Abdul rock Mon was a really good player was a fantastic player in the tournament last year, the big ten tournament IMO Wagner, of course, Faulkner. Yeah. First round pick two very good players and then guys just step in. And remember last year they were struggling until about midseason till you made the switch at point guard puts eight your Simpson. That's really the correlation in change, and they become an elite defensive team that doesn't foul. John. We saw last year the big ten tournament member. Yeah. He was he was just a guy who came in and gave him a few minutes. And then all of a sudden got into foul trouble that championship game. And he played he played great against Isaac hostages a coming out party for him. He had that Duncan Haas late in the game on the screen and roll with Simpson slowdown hitting that long jumper as Julius tries to go inside. He does to Brandon John's John's tried to wait out the defense missed it back out to Baird for three in and out. The bench was dying for that. One to go in thirteen seconds left. Twenty one point Michigan league got one three or four across the time. Once the dribble. Down to six seconds. I we're going to get a shot. Here's ash, we'll send the knuckleball towards the rim. It's a little short. Unfortunately for him. He will always know he shot an air ball. In vows. Michael Jordan, built better than me. Didn't do anything here. Michigan gets the inbound. And this one will be final. The wolverines will advance to the semifinals. They dominate the hawk is tonight seventy four to fifty three coming up. We'll have some closing thoughts from the court and the national association of realtors play player of the game. You're listening to the big.

"Got three one dollars come into next year exactly exactly but that should be that's important point michael glad you bring up that should be a lesson from this tumultuous tournament and everybody thought was so wide open and all this and in the end what wins two blue chip programs which of course we've talked about before generally you get to a championship game it is blue chip program but veteran teams teams with senior leash muhammad ali abdul rochman who's who gets four names because he's been there for four years it has played more games than anyone in uniform i mean that's a wreck that's a statistic you never hear anyone say anymore the guy has played more games than anyone who's ever worn a uniform you never hear that a major college basketball so to have a guy with that kind of presence and wagner and matthews at simpson and you know it's a good wash of a veteran town of veteran coach who has finally erased as i say this whole fab five jalen rose chris webber dominating the michigan talk they never hype machine that the fat five i forget who wrote it a guy even wrote a book about that awful talk about sinking into the morass but but you know even as someone who sell but it was to be celebrated in ninety one ninety two it's not to be celebrated in two thousand thirteen and i remember when thirteen came around there were all these stories about the fab five and why weren't they back accepted in the program and why weren't they welcomed in and all the rest of and beeline finally took that team to as far as the fab five went and now he's done it again and this program should be about john b line now the way that michigan state is about tom izzo and not guys who coach before him not judd heath code and so sometimes michigan lives in the past i mean maybe all schools do this by observant more living out here both sham boeckler hovers over the football program even though he hasn't coached the game since nineteen eighty nine there's a time the let the past go and this whole five thing and you know the talk about what will they ever be accepted back in the program it's not the most important story this is the most important story they got a quality coach who does things.

"Was a team that was ranked us highest wealth in the country. Dave reps, and joining us Lee host Big Ten Network are the Penn State story is, is phenomenal. Uh, and it you've watch this league up-close more than anything else. Now they go in and they get an opportunity against Purdue and maybe that punches the Lion's tickets to the dance. If if it's not already there, But how have they matched up the way they've matched up with Ohio State? To go three You know, against a very good basketball team. And secondly, uh, what kind of an opportunity do they have to beat Purdue? Well, why they've matched up with Ohio State is a really interesting question No, you're kinda tried to to figure it out myself. Let be part of it is they're just really talented. They're starting FIS very gotta. Make Sony car is going to have a decision to make this series. A sophomore is like a six, four point guard. He scored twenty five points each of the last two games. Uh, he is he's an NBA player. I mean, he's very, very good at larceny Than's is right there with him, but there without my Watkins who second in the Big Ten and billable percentage and blocks, I mean, he is a really good player in an ease out, at least for this tournament. So as to, you know how they did it. Um, they got really good performances from cutting Everyone stepped up, I guess would be the best way to put it. Um, and and that's that's kind of how they knocked off Ohio State as to how they match up with Purdue. Um, they have played Perdue close this year. Uh. In the one time that they did play and, uh, Jozef team, Purdue was without Vincent Edwards who know. No it for a while. It looked like he might be big Chen player of the year, and then he got hurt. Um, so you know, he's uh, I mean that was it in that was a factor in this game, but it was game Penn State led by three at the half. Uh, they defend did really well and and that's kind of the signature of teams. Underpass chambers is, is that they do guard really well. So that's what it's going to come down to, uh, to do hasn't been playing great. They've, they've been a team that's kind of in sneaking by people after they will pummeling people in the middle of the year. So I do think they're kinda ripe for the picking Penn State will definitely have the advantage in terms of crowd support. And they've been playing with a sense of urgency. I mean, they get up into your grill of that's kind of Pat chambers is that's his persona. And I think that's reflected in the way that his team quests David after the first ten copper and SK's Michigan will raise words a six and four on nine in one Michigan has since that point you watch that they would spend the difference of late for the Michigan Walgreens and. This turnaround, the weird thing about Michigan male is they have started to guard, and that's really what you think about with John Deehan line. They are ninth in the nation and defensive efficiency, and the last four years they haven't finish any IRA than sixty fifth. Uh, the best they've ever done under view. I was thirty seven So this is uncharacteristic up of Michigan team. They are really good defensively. Part of it is a reemphasise on it yard, hard and assistant last year believe Dom who was defence defensive specialist? He subsequently left for Northwestern, but he brought in Luke Kyaw Klitsch who is an excellent defensive coach as well and kind of what Billy downland put into place. I think glue Yok which has expanded on and so they're just a much better. I kinda was more of an emphasis on defense and there has been but I was talking to John last week and even Sanggau part of it is we just have guys who are who are more defense-minded Charles Matthews. The Kentucky transfer is a very good defensive player. Uh, Muhammad Ali Abdul Rock bond one of their starting guards as well. Uh, and then the other thing as they solidified the point guard spotters kinda up in the air early in the year, They were starting afresh Rene me live Brooks and he wasn't really contributing a ton Xabier Simpson kind of. He took over that job and had a couple of really good games for it became apparent that he was the, the solution for that position. It happened in in early January. And since then they've been a much different team which Simpson a at the point. So I think it's been a combination of things they figured out that the right rotations for them. And and then the defense has just been phenomenal River great talking to your man. Enjoy the, uh, the rest of this weekend in New York. And I think I may have missed stated though that, uh, that the Brassey Minnesota game was in length, But they still beat Minnesota would never really do.
