Nothing But ‘Net – Week #19 – Big Ten (Co) Champions!

By Basketball Writer Drew Montag:

The (#13) University of Michigan men’s basketball team played their final two games of the regular season on the road last week, and they won both of them. On Thursday (03/01/2012) they beat Illinois 72-61, then on Sunday (03/04/2012) they beat Penn State 71-65. The wins raise Michigan’s final regular season record to 23-8 (13-5 in the Big Ten). More importantly, the wins, combined with two Michigan State losses this week, allowed UM to tie for the Big Ten title with Michigan State and Ohio State! This is a really big deal, and completely unexpected. At the beginning of the season, most experts expected Michigan to finish near the top of the Big Ten, but few expected Michigan to win it. As recently as last week, when UM lost their last home game of the season to Purdue, it looked highly improbable, though mathematically possible. No way would MSU lose both games, even though they were against contenders. Well, they did, and Michigan won a share of the title, their first since 1986.

Nothing But ‘Net – Week #18 – 02/27/2012 – It Was Fun While It Lasted

The (#11) University of Michigan men’s basketball team played two games last week, and they won one and lost one.  On Tuesday (02/21/2012) they beat Northwestern 67-55 (overtime) in Evanston, then on Saturday (02/25/2012) they lost to Purdue 75-61 in Crisler Arena.  The win and loss leave Michigan with a record of 21-8 (11-5 in the Big Ten).  The loss to Purdue ruined Michigan’s perfect season at home.  They finished their home schedule 15-1, which is still very good.  The loss also knocked Michigan out of contention for the Big Ten title.  Being in the title hunt in the next-to-last week of the season was fun, but it didn’t work out.  Maybe next year…
