Green's dunk and blocked shot helps Tide pull the upset 68-66

JaMychal Green puts in a dunk followup with under 56 seconds remaining and caps it off with a monster rejection as time expired to hold off Michigan.

Box score or this one

I missed the 1st half as I was coming back fro yet another football game. I know in the 2nd half that Green dominated while Torrance hit some big 3s and set up his teammates nicely on some easy baskets. Charvez Davis carried us in the 1st half with his outside shooting (from the commentary).

The good:
- outhustled Michigan in the 2nd half
- Green and Torrance took over
- held Michigan to 38% FG and 24% 3PT FG

The bad:
- turned the ball over a bunch on steals
- 19 turnovers (addendum to above)

Nice win by the team. Coming out of this tournament 2-1 is pretty sweet.

Side note- Fran Fraschella might be the most annoying and inept(sp?) analysis on ESPN. As annoying as Duke Vitale might be, at least he does his homework on the teams he's covering... once you get past the Duke, UNC, Derek Jeter, and NY Yankees references.
