2011 Michigan State Basketball Cupcake Thread

MSU up to #14 in KenPom's rankings:

kenpom.com

B1G has 2 of the top 3 (Wisc and OSU), and 5 of the top 20 (Purdue, MSU, IU). UM is #32.

NW moved past UM in today's rankings (#35 and #37 -- Illinois at #38)

That gives us 8 of the top 40. BE has 7. No other conference has more than the ACC's 5.

Good game, our best offensive game of the year, at least from behind the arc. Very promising there. Now rest up for a bit and get ready for Gonzaga in 10 days.

Thornton apparently broke his jaw tonight...that sucks for him being a senior. While he can be frustrating to watch, never good to see a guy get injured.

We may see much more Byrd or Kearney.

MSU wins a pretty good game...that Central Connexticut team is actually fairly decent.

Oh, and Travis Trice is going to be an absolute joy to watch for four years.

Really happy with the effort last night. They had a plan in the second half, and stuck to it most of the way. Trice was brilliant, Dawson has SO much potential!

This team is really fun to watch. They sure aren't the best team in the world, but they work hard, and I love watching Dawson and Trice. Next year is going to be phenomenal.

Crazy stat from last night's game: our winning streak is currently 7 games. Our longest winning streak all of last year? 3 games.

Cupcakes or not, thats literally unbelievable.

The last "cupcake" game wasn't exactly a cupcake. But it's 11-in-a-row nonetheless. Great effort by the team, despite a sloppy first half. I was worried they'd let up at the end, and they did a bit, but the free-throw shooting was spectacular down the stretch, and they held on against a quality Lehigh team that will be a tourney team again this year.

Super excited for Wednesday's game!

Pumped for wednesday. Too bad FSU turned into a cupcake, they got smoked last night. Glad gonzaga beat arizona.

Not sure what to expect the next two months, but should be fun.
