Michigan lost its second straight road game, falling to Iowa in Carver-Hawkeye Arena, 85-67, Saturday. This is a chronological timeline of how the game played out on Twitter:
First Half:
Packed house at Carver-Hawkeye. Iowa fans know how to arrive on-time in the snow.— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 8, 2014
Caris LeVert starts on Devyn Marble and Stauskas on Aaron White. Gesell guards Nik on defense.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 8, 2014
Start the game off with a BANG!! Oop to GRIII— Maize Rage (@UMMaizeRage) February 8, 2014
Second straight game in which Michigan's scored the first points via GRIII alley-oop.— Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) February 8, 2014
They have 6-foot-9 forward Aaron White guarding Derrick Walton, which is a new one.— Neal Rothschild (@nrothschild3) February 8, 2014
Uh, somebody might want to find Devyn Marble and guard him...back-to-back 3-pointers give Iowa a 6-2 lead.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 8, 2014
Let's Go Blue✊— Roy Roundtree (@WRTreezy) February 8, 2014
Meanwhile, LeVert just failed to find Marble after a make. Rough start for him defensively.— Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) February 8, 2014
Stauskas receiving a hearty "boo" on every touch. He torched Iowa for 26 in the last meeting.— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 8, 2014
Need moar Stauskas, plz.— Bry Mac (@Bry_Mac) February 8, 2014
Iowa student section goes with the "Stauskas sucks" chants -- during a timeout.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 8, 2014
Thank yu Caris— Kameron Chatman #FOA (@TFOEKam_3) February 8, 2014
Iowa getting way out on the perimeter defensively, doing a great job disrupting U-M's ball movement.— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 8, 2014
Marble destroying his home state Wolverines; already with 14 as Iowa builds 21-10 lead— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) February 8, 2014
Media timeout. Down 10-23. Iowa shooting lights out and finding the open man. Just have to make adjustments and knock down some shots— Maize Rage (@UMMaizeRage) February 8, 2014
Michigan is not sharp. Bad shot selection leading to wide open transition looks for Iowa.— Dylan Burkhardt (@umhoops) February 8, 2014
This Michigan team can't win with defense, so 4-of-15 is a bigger problem for them than most teams— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) February 8, 2014
Nik Stauskas, coming off back-to-back single-digit games, is still scoreless after 11 minutes today.— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 8, 2014
Iowa has made as many three-point shots in the first 11 minutes as they had in the last three losses combined.— Patrick Vint (@HS_BHGP) February 8, 2014
Another LeBron block for LeVert there. That should probably be an official stat.— Fouad Egbaria (@HoldinTheRope) February 8, 2014
Zak Irvin is on fire!— Maize Rage (@UMMaizeRage) February 8, 2014
As John Beilein said the other day, #Michigan isn't having the season they are without some big time shots out of Zak Irvin off the bench— Kyle Bogenschutz (@KyleBogie) February 8, 2014
Is "Zak Irvin's not just a shooter" the new "Nik Stauskas' not just a shooter"?— Jim Weber (@JimMWeber) February 8, 2014
Iowa band playing "You Can Call Me Al" but I don't think it was directed at Jon Horford.— Neal Rothschild (@nrothschild3) February 8, 2014
If Michigan goes into the half with a single-digit deficit, it will be a miracle.— Joe Stapleton (@joe_stapes) February 8, 2014
The first 19 mins and 55 seconds of the half was like getting hit by a truck. The last 3 by Marble was just him backing up over the corpse.— Scott Bell (@sbell021) February 8, 2014
.@bacari34 says UM needs to switch faster and they've allowed Iowa to get too comfortable. We need a nastier mentality. #michvoice— Matt Shepard (@ShepMatt) February 8, 2014
Second Half:
Stauskas still hasn't really adjusted to teams focusing more on taking away the post entry pass.— Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) February 8, 2014
Beilein's reaction to the Stauskas turnover? Full recline in his chair with his arms stretched over his head.— Neal Rothschild (@nrothschild3) February 8, 2014
I love my school but excited to see my cousin go off!! Go blue n go Devyn.!— IG: Hayyhayy5 (@ju5ticehayes) February 8, 2014
The only good thing about this Michigan game is the Pancheros advertisement on the scorers table. Ugh.— Courtney Ratkowiak (@courtneyratkowi) February 8, 2014
Amazing to say but Stauskas is killing Michigan right now. Sloppy, lazy passing.— Bob Wojnowski (@bobwojnowski) February 8, 2014
Dakich's theories on this game are completely independent of basketball. It's all heart and desire and grit and AARON CRAFT THINGS.— Bry Mac (@Bry_Mac) February 8, 2014
Don't quite get the Iowa student section chanting, "Gary Coleman" on Walton's free throws.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 8, 2014
You could say #Hawkeyes Adam Woodbury is jacked up. pic.twitter.com/fD26ErIrmu— Brent Yarina (@BTNBrentYarina) February 8, 2014
Beilein shifting to a 1-3-1 down 15 ... Iowa scores anyway ... Hawkeyes lead 58-41, 12:30 left.— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 8, 2014
Iowa's McCabe is all Novak today... putbacks, fist pumps, fighting in the paint— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) February 8, 2014
Really impressed by Iowa. Have struggled to take next step - wilted in the spotlight a couple times. This performance about more than today— Dave Revsine (@BTNDaveRevsine) February 8, 2014
Michigan has committed six second-half turnovers and given up nine offensive rebounds to Iowa since halftime.— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 8, 2014
Michigan played poorly today. Iowa did not. - 30 -— Scott Bell (@sbell021) February 8, 2014
If I'm Bacari, I sneak out during the next TV timeout and beat the Iowa students to Panchero's.— Alex Prosperi (@AlexProsperi) February 8, 2014
Iowa is playing great, no doubt. Much, much more desperate than U-M. But Wolverines should be humbled into hunger by this 71-45 slaughter— Bob Wojnowski (@bobwojnowski) February 8, 2014
This is also Michigan's 4th game in 9 days. Not terribly surprising they rolled over when pushed.— Bry Mac (@Bry_Mac) February 8, 2014
Dakich now sharing that @adnanESPN is a great movie reviewer. This is what it's come to.— Alex Prosperi (@AlexProsperi) February 8, 2014
A Stauskas 3: we missed you. #goblue— Michigan Alumni (@michiganalumni) February 8, 2014
Memo to Glenn Robinson III: Please return to school and do not go to the NBA. Great kid, needs more confidence, assertiveness.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) February 8, 2014
Michigan's largest defeat under Beilein was a 28-point loss at Duke on Dec. 8, 2007.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 8, 2014
Postgame:
Most people didn't expect Michigan to win at Iowa. Margin of defeat is a surprise, but not a panic alarm. Defense is still the issue.— Bob Wojnowski (@bobwojnowski) February 8, 2014
Glass half-full: Given Beilein's bounceback track record, this bodes well for Tuesday's game in Columbus.— Neal Rothschild (@nrothschild3) February 8, 2014
Well, not much to say. learn and improve and get better. On to Tuesday! #BeatOhio #GoBlue— Maize Rage (@UMMaizeRage) February 8, 2014
I get it now. Michigan played like this so @dandakich could see his kid play. Kind of cool to hear Dakich's reaction.— Bob Wojnowski (@bobwojnowski) February 8, 2014
Nik Stauskas is averaging just five shots and 8.3 points in the last three games.— Brent Yarina (@BTNBrentYarina) February 8, 2014
Certainly did today - consistent effort. No lulls. Great win RT @RMerschman The Hawkeyes look like a championship team. What do u think— Dave Revsine (@BTNDaveRevsine) February 8, 2014
