Michigan's Season (Mercifully) Come to an End

Michigan's Big 10 tournament run was halted at one game as top-seeded Wisconsin disposed of Michigan by a score of 51-34. Those 34 points set a new Big-10 tournament record for futility. Ironically enough, Michigan was the team that held Minnesota to just 40 points which was the previous low, set in last year's tournament. Wisconsin jumped out to an early 10-0 lead on five layups before Michigan could put the ball in the hoop.

Michigan shot a dreadful 10-50 (20%) from the field in the game. The wolverines actually shot better from beyond the three-point arch than they did closer to the basket, hitting 6-24 (25%) of their 3 pt FG attempts and just 4-26 (15%) of their 2 pt FG.
Zach Gibson led the way for Michigan scoring eight points in the first half . Perhaps he's been reading/listening to all the criticism that WCBN's own Rushi Vyas has been dishing his way.

With Men's Basketball now done for the season, we can turn our attention fully to Michigan Hockey as they kick off their postseason tonight. Tony, Christian, and Andrew will have the call from Yost as the puck drops at 7:30. Listen live on the sports stream at Jeremy Kreisberg will have our first live blog as the game unfolds so be sure to check back for that as well.
