The Michigan Wolverines dismantled the 10th ranked Memphis Tigers on Monday and opened a lot of eyes in the process. Some folks started to see what Joe and I have been talking about regarding this team and what makes them a special bunch. Things that jumped out about this team in the Memphis win:

The Michigan Wolverines basketball team couldn’t overcome their first half woes in time to catch up with the Duke Blue Devils, eventually falling by a final score of 82-75.

1. Five turnovers and two missed shots on first five possessions
I don’t know if Michigan was intimidated, too fired up or just caught up in the moment but its first five possessions of the game were frustrating and uninspired. Sloppy turnovers, air balls, a lack of offensive flow and flat out poor play defined this stretch. Michigan fell behind 9-0 early and looked more like...
