What can you say about that? A signature win in New York for Coach Beilein as the Wolverines showed a lot of poise on offense while the trapping defense locked up the Bruins. I was really impressed with Stu Douglass and it’s clear that Sims and Harris are much improved. Even Dukie V. was mildly impressed.
UCLA probably isn’t anywhere close to the fourth best team in the country and I don’t think anyone in Ann Arbor is making travel plans for next April in Detroit. But no bother–win or lose that game Michigan looked so much better than at any point last year. . That’s progress, that’s refreshing and I’m looking forward to the Duke game(s).
