To be honest with you, I’m still not fully recovered from the Michigan v. Wisconsin game last week. But needed to come on now and congratulate both the Basketball team for having more strength than I and hockey for their Regular season title. Currently, Espn Braketology has Michigan in the Big Dance, with a play in game vs. Baylor. Right now I say with a win over Sparty next weekend and at least one win in the Big Ten Tournament (Hopefully Revenge Against Wisconsin) the Wolverines may earn their 2nd Tournament Bid in the past 3 years. Which is something to be happy about. Last note, congrats to Tim Hardaway Jr. for 3rd consecutive Big Ten Freshman of the Week Award.
Michigan guard Tim Hardaway Jr. wins third consecutive Big Ten Freshman of the Week award
As the Michigan basketball team has played its way onto the NCAA tournament bubble, much of it has been due to the play of Michigan freshman guard Tim Hardaway Jr.
For the third straight week, the Miami native was named the Big Ten’s Freshman of the Week.
Hardaway averaged 19 points, 3.5 assists and two rebounds in a loss to Wisconsin and a win over Minnesota last week. He shot 54.2 percent from the field and 60 percent from the 3-point line.
It is the fourth Freshman of the Week honor for Hardaway, who shared the award with Ohio State freshman forward Jared Sullinger on Dec. 27.
Purdue senior JaJuan Johnson won the Big Ten Player of the Week award.
