Tweet Up: Michigan 79, Nebraska 50

Michigan bounced back from its loss to Indiana in a big way, cruising past Nebraska, 79-50. This is a chronological timeline of how the game played out on Twitter:
First Half:
Combination of early start time and the snow means the non-student seats are maybe 50% full at tipoff.- Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) February 5, 2014
Michigan opens the game with an alley-oop from LeVert to Robinson. Yes, more of that, please.- Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 5, 2014
#Clev on pace for 120 in a 160-0 shutout. Avenge 1997.- Griffin Hickman (@griffinhickman) February 5, 2014
INSTANT HIGHLIGHT: Now, this is how you start a game, @umichbball! Glenn Robinson III with the alley-oop! WATCH - http://t.co/dEbvXMKAZ5- Big Ten Network (@BTN_Michigan) February 5, 2014
Nebraska hasn't run a single high pick and roll yet. Do they not remember the first match-up?- Bry Mac (@Bry_Mac) February 5, 2014
Michigan already matched it's number of three-point makes from the Indiana game. #ShotsShotsShotsShotsShotsShots- Andy Reid (@AReid_Wolverine) February 5, 2014
Nebraska killed U-M with ball screens in first meeting. Looks like U-M is switching or doubling P&R now rather than traditional hedge.- Dylan Burkhardt (@umhoops) February 5, 2014
Before we get too excited about Irvin, let's enjoy Stauskas while he's still around.- Alex Cook (@Alex_MnB) February 5, 2014
Michigan is salivating over this 2-3 zone...hitting outside shots adds a little confidence.- Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 5, 2014
Biggest issues with Irvin's game right now: struggles off the ball on D, not an elite rebounder yet, no go-to dribble move. Otherwise, woot.- Chris Gaerig (@cgaerig) February 5, 2014
Michigan's offense is getting whatever it wants right now. Like, anything. They're getting the extra guac for free.- Bry Mac (@Bry_Mac) February 5, 2014
Huge difference between 3's going in today and 3's they missed at IU Coming off NorthSouth penetration and inside kicks today, more rhythm- Josh Bartelstein (@Jbart20) February 5, 2014
U-M with 10 assists on 11 baskets... 7:33 left in half, lead Nebraska 30-14- Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) February 5, 2014
Great to see @DenardX and @DevG98 here!- Maize Rage (@UMMaizeRage) February 5, 2014

I've said it before, but Michigan's offense is the crane kick from Karate Kid. When do right, no can defend.- Bry Mac (@Bry_Mac) February 6, 2014
To the guy who yelled "SHOOT IT" when Irvin caught that pass in the corner: I don't think that was entirely necessary.- Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) February 6, 2014
Zac Irvin on fire!!- Dan Dakich (@dandakich) February 6, 2014
Of all the crazy things happening tonight, the craziest thus far is Irvin passing up that last three.- Joe Stapleton (@joe_stapes) February 6, 2014
Dear @UMMaizeRage, best first half happens when the jorts show up. Coincidence? I think not.- Chantel Jennings (@ChantelJennings) February 6, 2014
VIDEO: He's on FIRE!!!! Zak Irvin simply can't miss for @umichbball, and we have the proof. WATCH - http://t.co/WZGsfRtiXo- Big Ten Network (@BTN_Michigan) February 6, 2014
If I would have known it would be like this, I would have brought the black jerseys. We have to come out & win each segment of the 2nd half.- Tim Miles (@CoachMiles) February 6, 2014

Michigan only scored 4 points in the final 10:35. I think it's time to ask if John Beilein is the right coach for Michigan.- Scott Bell (@sbell021) February 6, 2014
