Excited to watch Burke perform under pressure again. The game against Ohio State Trey wanted to win so badly, playing in front of his family and friends and wanting to show Ohio State how wrong they were in not recruiting him. He was really forcing things by trying to do too much and he kind of messed up the team chemistry that first half. It was tough watching him so rattled and it briefly gave me flashbacks to the tourney last year.
The next big pressure game after that was against #9 Minnesota where he was steady and looked like his usual self right from the get go.
Today (Saturday) will be similar pressure to that Ohio State game, except the winner takes the big10 lead and is #1 in the country (no sharing) - plus the additional media attention, scouts, etc. It'll be crazy.
Michigan is such a young team - can't wait to see how they respond to the intensity of that atmosphere. Go Blue!
I am so torn.
I obviously want Black Jesus Burke to win, but I feel that a win here will make him permanently unobtainable for the Utah Jazz franchise, barring a draft pick being gained from a trade.
Go Michigan :|
I'm pulling for UM.
However, my prediction for the game is;
UM - 69
IU - 75
I'm gonna watch this game in 3D tonight.
All are invited.
