A Grand Finale: Michigan 83, Minnesota 55

It took four months for this team to hit its stride, and now, the sky is the limit for the Michigan Wolverines.

I kid.  I kid.

But it's nice.  It's a nice way to send out Sims, Gibson, and Wright...and each got a chance to contribute.  Some analysts will say that we "match up well" with the Gophers, some will say we were inspired by senior night, but the truth is...our 3's fell (8-19), and there's didn't (3-16).  And in addition to the 15 point swing that the 5 extra 3's provided, it also put Michigan in rhythm.  When those shots start to go in with some kind of regularity, they tend to get back on D a little quicker, tend to rebound a little more.

We truly do live and die by it.

“A couple of shots dropped, and it was contagious,” Michigan coach John Beilein said.

Sure.  I hope it carries over into Sunday...because all we have left is beating Michigan Agricultural College.  By the way, you don't need a .500 record to make the NIT anymore, so were like in it, right?

Another question yet to be answered...was that Manny's last game in Crisler?
