Indiana 70, Michigan 63
The good news? Michigan played without Lester Abram in Bloomington against arguably the most talented team in the Big Ten and lost a close one. This is arguably our toughest game of the year. Memo to the rest of the Big Ten? We're capable of winning every other game on the schedule, including roadies in Champaign and East Lansing. Not saying we will, but in any given game we've got a chance. And it's been a while since you could say that.
The bad? Courtney Sims pulled the old disappearing act in a big game against 2 tough post opponents. From what I've been told, he battled foul trouble all game long and the guards did absolutely no work to try to get him the ball. Then again, he had one of his game where he didn't seem to want the ball either. Sorry Courtney, you've got the skills and we need you to show up in games like this. Will somebody please stick a firecracker up his ass?
Next up? Home games with Purdue and Northwestern sandwiched around a tough roadie to Illinois. Gotta expect 2-1 over those 3 games with a chance at 3-0.
