Our guys had pressure and expectations. We were going to eventually have an off night shooting and UT happened against the wrong team. Michigan who shouldn't have been in the tournament had absolutely 0 pressure. They played with house money.
Lol. MI turned the ball over how many times? Defense can't win the game alone. Besides Chandler this was an absolutely terrible offensive performance. Vescovi was a non factor all game offensively. Hard to blame that on Barnes.
No changes to the defensive pressure on our outside shooters, JJJ picked a great game to have a terrible shooting night, the scoring droughts came at absolutely horrible times, way too much rat poison circulating this week around an unproven team, final four, not, big physical teams have always given Barnes fits and this one was no different, we just got slapped around by a Big 10 team that will be embarrassed in the Sweet 16
Vescovi is always going to struggle with length and speed guarding him. Michigan did their homework and shut him down. Smart coaching on their part. A championship team would adjust and compensate, but we couldn’t.
Great season. Looking forward to next year.
