Champions Of The West

I went to the Michigan basketball game yesterday.  It was in L.A.'s Staples Center, and only cost an awful lot.

Anyway, now that the Wolverines have beat the Seminoles, they've won the West region and made the Final Four. Up next, Loyola, a team they've got a good shot at beating.  After that would be the big game, likely against a considerably tougher opponent,

It was a pretty weird game.  You can tell by the low score, 58-54.  Both sides were good at defense, but the shooting, in general, was awful.  Michigan made 39% of their field goals, and a pathetic 4 out of 22 three-pointers.  For that matter, they were 16 out of 24 in free throws (and especially missed a lot in the second half).  The only reason they won was FSU was worse.  If Michigan keeps playing like that, they won't win again.

But it did show, even on an off night, Michigan could pull it together well enough to win.  If they're on their game from now on, they could take it all.

Thanks- put me in first place in my pool at least for now. No one else picked MI for the final 4. At this point though, I need Duke to win out (and Villanova to get into the Final 4). However the traditional victor's pizza lunch will cost more than the winnings, I'm kind of meh about it
