Two experts, of disparate qualifications, pontificate about tonight’s game:
1) Yours truly was invited to talk about the game on Chadd Scott’s “Big Ten All-Access” show at bustersports.com, an on-line sports radio channel. You can access the audio feed here. My bit starts at about the 26-minute mark (wait for the feed to fully load).
2) A commentator with more intimate knowledge of the game, Tom Izzo, offers his thoughts in the video clip below. The coach thinks the key to stopping UNC is containing Ty Lawson–another reason we have to hit our outside shots, to prevent long rebounds that would lead to fast break opportunities. It’ll be interesting to see whether Kalin Lucas (quickness) or Travis Walton (strength) is the primary defender assigned to Lawson.

I’ll be returning from Detroit at a very late hour tonight, so I doubt the game recap will be up until some time later in the day tomorrow. Until then, feel free to post your thoughts before, during, and/or after the game in the comments section below.
Anybody else going tonight?
