The #3 ranked Michigan Wolverines (10-0) will play on a neutral site (the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn) against West Virginia on Saturday night. Tip is set for 8 pm and the game will be televised on ESPN.
At the time that this matchup was put together it looked awfully intriguing. The marquee read John Beilein taking on the school where he first stamped his coaching legend. On the other side sits Bob Huggins, the Mountaineers latest front man. Both teams are coming off of successful seasons from a year ago, but both also lost in their opening round matchup of the NCAA tourney.
And now, it simply looks like a grotesque mismatch of talent and superior play. Michigan is drubbing all comers and West Virginia is, well, getting drubbed by most comers.
The Mountaineers (4-4) started their season with a 34 point loss to Gonzaga, the same team who bounced them from March Madness a season ago. They have also lost to Davidson, Oklahoma, and most recently Duquesne on Tuesd...

@TKBigCrew Which ’13 recruit has the greatest opportunity to make an impact as a freshman?
The easy answer is Derrick Walton. Walton is a great prospect and likely to contend for the Mr. Basketball award in the state of Michigan plus Trey Burke is a likely NBA early entry candidate. Combine those two facts with the amount of freedom that John Beilein allows his...
Tim Hardaway Jr. started the season doing pretty much everything well, even winning MVP honors at the NIT Tip-Off. Recently, however, Hardaway has been experiencing some of the same trouble he experienced around this time last season. Namely, his shots aren’t falling.
Over Michigan’s past two games, Hardaway has shot just 3-of-13 from long range. However, the junior said that...

Trey Burke: 9.5 (Last Week: 9.5)
Michigan’s star point guard continues to lead the offense through both his scoring ability and his passing. Burke had an uncharacteristic three turnovers against Arkansas on Saturday, but given that modus operandi of the Razorback defense...

Michigan jumped out to a 13-4 lead and rarely if ever looked back despite a handful of mini-runs by the Mountaineers while cruising to an 81-66 victory. West Virginia cut the first half lead...
