On the road to Indy

Barreling down 94 past Great America in my dad's Impala (bonus - he's got an I-pass!), we'll stop in Merrillville, Ind., tonight. We should be all rested and ready for the first game tomorrow.

So we've got Michigan. Should be a good game. Leuer's freakish performance in Ann Arbor gave us a larger margin of victory than you'd expext. The game in Madison was much closer, and what worried me was that we really didn't play that bad.

What sticks out as key for tomorrow is:

1. Perimeter defense. It's been getting better and better since we last played Michigan, and I'm confident in Flowers, Pop and Krabby on Harris, Sims, et al.

2.Rebounding. They got waaaaaay too many offensive rebounds in Madison, especially Udoh. Again, we've been doing well on this front lately.

The biggest thing that worries me is our past performance s the top seed in the Big Ten Tournament, but realistically that shouldn't come into play.

Looking forward to a great weekend!
