Not betting against Beilein with a week of prep time. Best as there is when it comes to game day preparation. Close game, but Michigan pulls it out. Nova beats Kansas going away.

Michigan looking tough, Loyola cannot get a shot now.

Once things settle I think we'll see another Loyola 'miracle.'

Classic big stage jitters; ugly basketball so far. And some times the unfamiliar football stadium style configuration throws the shooters off. Loyola is having a lot of problems here- and not just the shooting. Refs are really swallowing the whistle too.

As I suspected Beilein has Michigan prepped well to take away much of Loyola's fluidity when it comes to rotation without the basketball on offense. Loyola is going to have to make its perimeter shots to keep this close. If they don't start knocking some of those down, I think we're looking at a blowout here ladies and gents.

Yes, I noticed that too. Suffering the jitters.

Feels like I'm watching a Virginia game, will either team get to 25 points by the half?

Maybe they're going for the lowest scoring 1st half in a semi-final game history!

But then again, when Michigan has the ball- yuck, yuck, yuck: awful. Wagner's size is the only contribution to Michigan's output. Ugly first half. Loyola has found some rhythm without the perimeter shooting.

Oh ya baby, I'm feeling this!

Lowest seeded team to ever play for the championship!

Brutal. Loyola has found itself. This is not the Michigan team of the last six weeks. Were they out partying late on the River Walk? Standing around, flat-footed- and lazy a couple of occasions, not boxing out.
