    Kinda wish we would have emptied the bench a lil earlier. Nothing to lose, really. But, I'm proud of the boys for getting this far.

    I like Nembhard, but he needs to develop a killer instinct.

    Oh well. This team was limited this year, coach white did a good job getting them in the tournament and winning at least 1 game.

    Consistent shooters and an inside game is needed.

    About what I expected.....could've been worse if Michigan didn't miss so many layups


    Honestly, I really don't think that Michigan is that much better than us. They just have size and front court depth. If Stokes was defensively competent enough to give 15 minutes a game, his offensive presence as a high post threat would've forced Teske to play him more aggressively and not let him free lance in the middle so much. Which then creates driving, cutting and passing lanes.

    Smart game plan in basically face-guarding Allen all over the floor. That kid put in some good work defending him.

    Nembhardt needs to have a chiozza-like athletic transformation this off-season. Work in the weight room far exceeds the need for him to improve his shot. With his on court IQ, if he gets quicker, stronger, and faster/more explosive he will be a sure fire top 15 pick even with an odd jumper.

    Speaking of Cheese, he just signed a contract with Houston to finish the season....good for him to earn some NBA time. Especially with a guy like Chris Paul around to watch and learn from.

    49 points don’t beat many teams. Best of luck to our seniors but I’m looking forward to some new blood and a different personality for this team. Hudson, Allen, and Hayes didn’t have aggressive personalities and it translated to the floor.

    Just don’t understand not rolling out okauru for a few minutes or stokes for a few. Just feels like missed chances for a couple breathers.

    Hard to see the seniors check out.

    Certainly feels like an incomplete career without getting those guys to the Final Four. That’s the heartbreak of sports though.

    Lost to a very good team, which was bad matchups for us all the way around. We had to shoot 40% on 3s to have a chance. Good year for a transition. Made the tourney and won 20 games. Adding 2 5 stars and a big guy. Should be fun as our 3 Freshman mature.

    No your post are ridiculous. One of those that can't wait they lose and then comes out with the same stupid garbage. The best thing about them ending the season is not having to deal with your post for a while or at least until you show up on another sports thread. I am sure you think they should fire Sully after this weekend.

    You might want to check that. I was being realistic. You are being melodramatic. We are small and also mediocre shooters. Never mind the errors for now.

    So, next year's team will be the first true MW team. No players that were BD recruited, correct?

    I made no comments for months partially because I was banned and also because of the negative feedback I got for criticizing White and some players.

    It has and will be my position that even this grosdly undersized team would have gotten better results had better decisions been made.

    The team would only go as far as the seniors would take them. Our two senior guards struggled, and we saw the result. If they were hot, we'd probably be on a run to the Elite 8.

    Eh, I've seen worse. But nevertheless, even if it were true (for the sake of discussion). Who would we get that is better?

    Honestly


    note: this is not intended to be a "Fire Mike White" support post.

    For me, I give Mike White a break because as it's been stated, replacing a long term predecessor with a record like BD's (some say legend) is hard. You name the school, I'll name transition coaches who got fired.

    With this incoming recruiting class, he is finally going to show his system with all his recruits. When he is finally starting to land some big timers as the top high schoolers have trust that we'll be alright as a program. 3 trips to the tourney in 4 years with what was left his first year is saying a lot.

    and we're not getting anyone out there that is better or at least somewhat proven.

    So firing White is a non-starter from that perspective alone.
