Let's Keep It Rollin

Tipoff is in just a few minutes for the Michigan-Miami Elite Eight matchup in the NIT. Michigan rolled to an easy win earlier in the year but Miami was without their starting PG at the time. I was unable to watch the Michigan-Notre Dame game since I was still at work while it was going on and the worse part was the fact that there were no replays of the game shown because ESPN decided to replay every single women's tournament game that went on that night which sucked. So all I have to go off of last game are the reports I got from friends and the highlights from that night. I know what this team is capable of and we should be able to get the W and punch our ticket to New York.

The other big news from this game is that Patrick Beverley, a combo guard from Chicago is coming into town for his official visit. He's one of the top unsigned players left in the class of 06 and he has narrowed his list to Michigan, St. John's and Arkansas as the fourth team, Virginia has been eliminated. The Michigan visit is his first, from reports that I have read he would be a great addition to the team and would help in softening the blow of Daniel Horton's graduation. He put up huge numbers his senior year as he averaged 34 points per game. Hopefully he has a good visit and I definitely want to see him in the Maize and Blue next year. Time for tipoff now, let's get it done fellas, Go Blue!
