doug- Very true. In the post game interview, the announcers asked Ryan ‘why didnt you foul’ to burn clock. He still didn’t get it, though.

Dave – he got it. Look at what Bruesewitz did on that last shot. He was instructed to follow if Michigan got the bounce. The did, he attempted to foul, and didn’t follow on the shot. Sometimes shots go down. Case in point: the next shot…
