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.

Yeah I know, GR3 and Oladipo

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

Agreed

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.

No doubt in my mind Indiana

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

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

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.

He and Lorenzo Brown are the most bizarre projected 2nd round picks I've ever seen.

Both need to go in The Lottery.

Zeller needs to put his

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.

Trey Burke is the best player

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.

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

Even though Cody is a better prospect.

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.

Plumlee may have more 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.

So do all the Zeller's

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.

Burke

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.
