Michigan's video open is set to Nas' "Hate Me Now" and segues into Biggie's "Hypnotize"...somebody's been upping their hip-hop game.- Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) January 31, 2014
So here's a horrific stat per @nbairdjc. Purdue is shooting 32.5 pct on 2-pointers over last 3 games.- Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) January 31, 2014
So true. RT @detnewsRodBeard: If you ask Beilein, every game is a trap game. RT @Burnsy381: trap game?- Joe Stapleton (@joe_stapes) January 31, 2014
First Half:
Before anybody just blows off this Purdue game, remember the Boilers ended Michigan's bid at an unbeaten home schedule in '12.- Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) January 31, 2014
Nik Stauskas had to pump-fake the three-goggle for a second there. Hilarious.- Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) January 31, 2014
Nik Stauskas has just entered the top 75 in all-time @umichbball scoring, passing Joel Thompson and tying Garde Thompson in 74th with 766.- Griffin Hickman (@griffinhickman) January 31, 2014
I dont' understand how Caris LeVert has five rebounds in five minutes. He's either an octopus or a spider.- Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) January 31, 2014
Three different U-M players with 3s -- Walton, Stauskas, LeVert. Wolverines leading 11-6, 14 mins- Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) January 31, 2014
Purdue's defense is really easily frazzled. A little penetration and the whole thing asplodes.- Bry Mac (@Bry_Mac) January 31, 2014
Purdue already inserted 11 players into this game before it was 8 minutes old.- Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) January 31, 2014
Has "left off the mid-season Wooden Award list" replaced "Not Just a Shooter"?- Bry Mac (@Bry_Mac) January 31, 2014
I think we need to get Michigan some of that stick-um that Clifford Franklin used in "The Replacements."- Drew Hallett (@DrewCHallett) January 31, 2014
Another great student turnout here for Michigan, no empty seats. ... Maybe they should be closer to the floor?- Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) January 31, 2014
Three straight turnovers is one way to cough up a lead in a hurry.- Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) January 31, 2014
Put in Burke.- Alex Prosperi (@AlexProsperi) January 31, 2014
Is this basketball coated with Vaseline? What is happening here? @umichbball- Courtney Ratkowiak (@courtneyratkowi) January 31, 2014
Michigan has 8 turnovers in 13 minutes. I think the team just wants to see the Beilein Leadership Aneurysm again.- Bry Mac (@Bry_Mac) January 31, 2014
Caris LeVert is playing tonight: 3 pts, 7 rebs, 2 blk in about 12 minutes.- Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) January 31, 2014
Stauskas and LeVert ... ball-handling at this point is just on a different level. These guys are locked in completely on O.- Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) January 31, 2014
And the reason why he plays over Spike RT @cgaerig: Walton's on-ball defense is the most underrated part of this Michigan team.- Alex Cook (@Alex_MnB) January 31, 2014
Stauskas doing everything now. Kobe assist, scoop & score, 2 blocks in one defensive stand.- MGoShoe (@MGoShoe) January 31, 2014
Let it be known that @DerrickWalton10 is pretty quick.- Michigan Basketball (@umichbball) January 31, 2014

Yes, LeVert needs to cut down on the turnovers, but at least he's getting pretty awesome at recovering from them.- Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) January 31, 2014
