Tweet Up: Michigan 70, Ohio State 60

After a slow start, the Wolverines caught fire Tuesday night, toppling Ohio State 70-60. It was Michigan coach John Beilein's first in in Columbus, and the program's first win there since 2003.

Stauskas snaps 0-for-3 start with a step back triple— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) February 12, 2014
Craft on Nik like we thought, should be very interesting on how he attacks him— Josh Bartelstein (@Jbart20) February 12, 2014
Certainly not the hostile atmopshere of the past decade here for this game... Not the same at all— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) February 12, 2014
This "GRIII needs to get more involved" thing is starting to become a serious detriment. He's forcing things.— Bry Mac (@Bry_Mac) February 12, 2014
Michigan operating the "anything inside the 3-point line is hot lava" offense early on.— Scott Bell (@sbell021) February 12, 2014
OSU's ball launcher is dangerous. Just knocked down a drink in press seats spilling it all over @d_wasserman's laptop— Simon Kaufman (@sjkauf) February 12, 2014
Little Spike vs. Della Valle right now. Beilein chose Spike > Della Valle when it looked like Trey was gone after freshman year— Daniel Wasserman (@d_wasserman) February 12, 2014
Michigan's transition D rearing its ugly head already. Gotta get back.— Joe Stapleton (@joe_stapes) February 12, 2014
OSU defense is all over UM so far. Going to need better looking shots moving forward.— Elliott Mealer (@el_mealer) February 12, 2014
Michigan looking flat-footed on defense. Now in an early hole. Needs to respond better than it did in Bloomington and Iowa City or else ...— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 12, 2014
Robinson's looks appeared to be good ones, shots just not falling. He has to stay aggressive, though. Can't vanish.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) February 12, 2014
Zak Irvin enters and hits a triple...how do teams even give him space? #scoutingreport— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 12, 2014
That's 8 layups for Ohio State in 8 minutes.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) February 12, 2014
LaQuinton Ross 11, Michigan 10.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 12, 2014
"Beat Ohio" is SO lame. As is "TTUN". Give me a break!! Just go play your butts off. Enough of the shenanigans. #respecttherivalry— Kirk Herbstreit (@KirkHerbstreit) February 12, 2014
Michigan strength coach Jon Sanderson was on OSU's 1999 Final Four team. May or may not be allowed back in state.— Jim Weber (@JimMWeber) February 12, 2014
Michigan is shooting 4-of-15 (27 percent) in the first 10 minutes. That's just not going to get it done, especially on the road.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 12, 2014
"@TheDudeAbides_1: @Jbart20 pretty sure Craft will grab and hold all game and get away with it as usual" this is true— Josh Bartelstein (@Jbart20) February 12, 2014
So they're doing the "How is Ohio State shutting down Stauskas" discussion because Stauskas is only on pace for 20 points?— Bry Mac (@Bry_Mac) February 12, 2014
If Michigan defends the lane, it'll be back in this game sooner than later ... make Ohio State shoot from 8 feet out, you could be OK.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) February 12, 2014
Surprisingly, Michigan has 5 offensive rebounds already...about the only thing keeping them close right now.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 12, 2014
Beilein time, down 10 with 6 left in half. Buckeyes playing in a different gear than Wolverines so far.— Pat Forde (@YahooForde) February 12, 2014
OSU playing great D, but Michigan is getting enough looks for the game to be tied if they could hit a shot.— Joe Stapleton (@joe_stapes) February 12, 2014
People: J Mo is doing just fine. 4 points, 6 rebounds. Defending the paint isn't all on him.— Joe Stapleton (@joe_stapes) February 12, 2014
First 7:14 -- Ohio State 17, Michigan 8. Last 9:14 -- Michigan 10, Ohio State 9— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 12, 2014
Just got to run Nik off more screens like that, the first cut isn't going to work anymore— Josh Bartelstein (@Jbart20) February 12, 2014
As @umhoops just pointed out next to me, Ohio State's offense isn't very good when it's not scoring wide open looks at the rim.— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 12, 2014
"You know, people say I have a man crush on Aaron Craft...you know, I really like CJ Fair, too." Dear lord, ESPN announcing...— Courtney Ratkowiak (@courtneyratkowi) February 12, 2014
And just like that Michigan down just 2. Strong body up by Irvin in the post before a LeVert 3 and Mich should enter break with momentum— Daniel Wasserman (@d_wasserman) February 12, 2014
An 8-0 run by Michigan has cut Ohio State's lead to 28-26 with 8.5 seconds till half. U-M looking for a stop on final poss.— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 12, 2014
Michigan enters the break trailing 30-26. Somehow, they can find a way to be both pleased and furious about that.— Daniel Wasserman (@d_wasserman) February 12, 2014
Michigan fouling Ross on corner 3 sullies a nice rally to end half. Still: OSU controlled half and only has four-point lead to show for it.— Pat Forde (@YahooForde) February 12, 2014
Second Half:

Another big three for Stauskas, his third of the game.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 12, 2014
Just keep shooting threes, Buckeyes. They can't ALL not go in.— Tony Gerdeman (@GerdOzone) February 12, 2014
Man, Ohio State's interior defense is not messing around.— Adam Jacobi (@Adam_Jacobi) February 12, 2014
Michigan trying to hang against Buckeyes but so much perimeter passing around, nothing inside. These are the games they really miss McGary.— Bob Wojnowski (@bobwojnowski) February 12, 2014
Walton tough drive for two, then takes charge from the much larger Amir Williams. Michigan doesn't have "A" game so far, but not going away.— Pat Forde (@YahooForde) February 12, 2014
Beilein as excited as you'll see, runs on the middle of the court during timeout to congratulate Walton for taking the charge— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) February 12, 2014
Michigan's perimeter style makes it look passive, even when it's not. But needs to crank up the defense. Gotta be tougher there.— Bob Wojnowski (@bobwojnowski) February 12, 2014
Horford is showing something this game...six big points.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 12, 2014
It's to the point where you just expect Irvin's shot to go in when it leaves his oh-so-awkward release— Daniel Wasserman (@d_wasserman) February 12, 2014
.UM's freshmen-Walton and Irvin have been so strong...as good defensively as offensively. UM within one with 11mins to go . #michvoice— Matt Shepard (@ShepMatt) February 12, 2014
Zak Irving doesn't just make shots, he makes huge shots— Josh Bartelstein (@Jbart20) February 12, 2014
This game reminds me so much of the Michigan-Michigan State game. I was fond of that end result.— Scott Bell (@sbell021) February 12, 2014
LeVert and Walton are growing every game. Michigan could actually steal this game, because Buckeyes for some reason keep taking bad 3s.— Bob Wojnowski (@bobwojnowski) February 12, 2014
Stauskas makes both FT and Michigan has its first lead since 3-2.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 12, 2014
Dakich: "You learn more sitting in that student section than you do in any class." Well, yeah, of course, when you're at Ohio State.— Andy Reid (@AReid_Wolverine) February 12, 2014
When Michigan's run started...hard to argue with "@BFQuinn: fyi ... Zak Irvin subbed in for Glenn Robinson III at the 13:40 mark."— Daniel Wasserman (@d_wasserman) February 12, 2014
Amazing Michigan is winning this game.— Michael Spath (@Spath_Wolverine) February 12, 2014
Horford-Morgan: 10 points, 10 rebounds.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) February 12, 2014
Somehow, Michigan is rolling now...hard to fathom after that first half.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 12, 2014
Man oh man the way this game has turned....Nothing falling for OSU and everything dropping on the rim for Michigan. Stunning— Daniel Wasserman (@d_wasserman) February 12, 2014
Not comparing, but that was a Trey Burke-type hesitation on Walton's three-point play.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 12, 2014
Walton with a carer best 8 rebs...to go along with five pts and 5 ast. #michvoice— Matt Shepard (@ShepMatt) February 12, 2014
Game has turned on a dime. Michigan now steadfastly driving to the hole and it's paying off. Ohio State settling for threes and missing.— Pat Forde (@YahooForde) February 12, 2014
Michigan doesn't really have an answer for Q Ross on the block -- especially with Irvin at the four. Expect Matta to go to that every set.— Dylan Burkhardt (@umhoops) February 12, 2014
Michigan is 8-of-16 (50 percent) on 3-pointers.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 12, 2014

Aaron Craft looks like someone about to get yelled at by his mom for not wearing a coat outside when playing with the neighbor kids.— Scott Bell (@sbell021) February 12, 2014
WHOA! They called that on Craft, IN Columbus!?— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) February 12, 2014
Derrick Walton is one board, two points and four assists away from a triple-double.— Chantel Jennings (@ChantelJennings) February 12, 2014
Derrick Walton balling right now.— Mark Giannotto (@mgiannotto) February 12, 2014
Michigan 56, OSU 52 under four. Wolverines just hammering offensive glass. Walton 8 pts, 9 rebs, 6 assists.— Pat Forde (@YahooForde) February 12, 2014
Well Derrick Walton has become an upper echelon point guard in the Big Ten and I didn't see that coming— Josh Bartelstein (@Jbart20) February 12, 2014
Talk about a great college basketball game. These guys are playing with unbelievable effort! #GoBlue— Kevin Koger (@KogerNotKroger) February 12, 2014
Derrick Walton jr looking like Trey Burke. Which means in 2 years, the Pistons can not draft him. #troll— Bob Wojnowski (@bobwojnowski) February 12, 2014
All these tap-out rebounds have been huge. Especially for a team that doesn't have the big bodies to come down with the ball.— Neal Rothschild (@nrothschild3) February 12, 2014
Say what you want about Glenn, that's a big time shot— Josh Bartelstein (@Jbart20) February 12, 2014
I think its fair to say everyone saw that GRIII coming.— Andrew Beilein (@AndrewBeilein) February 12, 2014
The implosion is all-encompassing.— Tony Gerdeman (@GerdOzone) February 12, 2014
Walton draws ANOTHER foul on a 3-point attempt. He has to be leading the Big Ten in that category— Daniel Wasserman (@d_wasserman) February 12, 2014
OSU's A. Kraft is a good player, but he is clearly being outplayed tonight by Michigan's freshman Derrick Walton Jr.— Desmond Howard (@DesmondHoward) February 12, 2014
Derrick Walton is LEADING out there!— David Merritt (@DavidMerritt15) February 12, 2014
That rebound gives @DerrickWalton10 his first career double-double. Growing up right in front of our eyes. /tears up— Michigan Basketball (@umichbball) February 12, 2014

Massive win for Michigan. That's the type of victory champions get.— Adam Jacobi (@Adam_Jacobi) February 12, 2014
Walton Jr. always had composure in key moments in his prep days. Buzzer beaters, big time free throws late, calm temperament. Ready for it.— Kyle Bogenschutz (@KyleBogie) February 12, 2014
Per B1G standings, MSU, Wisconsin and Ohio State are 3 of the 4 best non-Michigan teams in the B1G. U-M has beaten all 3 ... on the road.— Scott Bell (@sbell021) February 12, 2014
