Amaker and Michigan lose again, looks like it is back to Crisler for NIT
SALINE, MICHIGAN MARCH 9, 2006 NCAA Tournament bid? Ha! Not for these guys. Michigan made lowly Minnesota look like the Pistons. Another Tommy Amaker team will be denied an NCAA Tournament bid due to a complete collapse at the end of the season ruined a promising season for the Wolverines.
Michigan will be able to “redo” the Senior Night disaster against the Indiana Hoosiers last Saturday as Michigan will be one of the NIT favorites and play another game at home. The silver lining: the last Michigan play on the first Senior Day was Graham Brown doinking his desperation full court pass off of the Crisler Arena scoreboard. Funny, because I threw the TV remote at the television right about the same time. Now we’ll both get a chance to retrieve our dignity as the Wolverines prepare for a memorable NIT run.
