NCAAM Wisconsin taking on the Wolverines tonight big game!
This was the Fab five. If you don’t know the names they are Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Juwan Howard, Jimmy King and Ray Jackson. These guys are responsible for me having real interest in college basketball when I was a kid. I hadn’t had a favorite team yet but you know how kids work you always pick the winners.
They came together in 1991 when I was like 9 years old at the time so I barely knew how to even play basketball yet. But I vividly remember watching these guys play epic games like they were playing a bunch of high school kids. Four of these guys were McDonalds All Americans coming into college, that hadn’t been done again till you guessed it Kentucky in 2014.
Their first two years in College they made the national title game but lost two. The first one they lost gets overshadowed by Chris Webber’s fun little time out call when they didn’t have any left against North Carolina. I haven’t seen this in a while.
Now onto the game
This could be the big win Michigan needs to make the tournament. They are sitting on a 16-9 record and right on that bubble so we need this one. Wisconsin has owned the Wolverines winning that last 17-19 which just isn’t a good look. Coming off a big win off Michigan state 86-57, they need this one to bolster their resume.
“Our kids are focused and prosperity has not been a friend to us so far this year,” Wolverines coach John Beilein said. “When we have played well, we have lost a little bit of that edge that we need. We have come out there with that aggression we need, that angry aggression to get a ‘W.'”
The blue print to beat Wisconsin is out there after Northwestern took them down in their last game 66-59. They won by bottling up Ethan Happ of Wisconsin the whole game with double teams. Looking for a great game tonight. It’s on the ESPN so here we go!!
