This guy has the total package.
That's what ran through my mind as Evan Turner drilled a 40-foot leaning jumper to send the Wolverines home for the season. Turner's shot was a prayer answered after Manny Harris and Michigan surged in the game's final minutes to take the lead behind several clutch shots. This win may prove to be a worthwhile scare for the Bucks, and it keeps their hopes for a number one seed alive, heading into tomorrow night's matchup with the winner of the Wisconsin-Illinois game. March Madness has truly kicked off.
Sims's quick start, kicking the rust off: DeShawn Sims got plenty of nice looks for the Wolverines early, and his quick 8 points gave Michigan the early lead. The rest of the U of M squad was aided by open driving lanes thanks to a cautious OSU defense that looked afraid to foul early in a game where the calls were few and far between. The Bucks also had 5 turnovers in the game's first 10 minutes as a couple of passes simply bounced off their hands. With a 10 day layoff, much of this is understandable, but U of M was not about to let them get away with it.
