Sports Recap: Wining & Dining

Plenty more NCAA championships, a few tough losses, and more football spring practice coverage.

Football

Spring practice is now in full swing, and there's plenty of details coming out about how the team is doing.

Gerry DiNardo stopped by and offered his thoughts. He liked what he saw.

As has become the usual, DiNardo wasn't the only visitor to Ann Arbor.

John Harbaugh also spoke in front of his family and some of the best high school coaches in the country. He spoke about several things, including his relationship with his brother.

He also spoke about new Detroit Lion Haloti Ngata.

Eventually, though, there was a little too much talking, and not enough working.

And, Jim announced another hire to the Michigan program.

Tim Drevno tweeted out some great views of the Big House:

In anticipation of Jake Rudock possibly joining the football team, MGoVideo put together a video of his performance the last time he faced the Buckeyes.

Jake Rudock lacks the arm strength to make field side throws quickly, and he transmits his intentions a little bit. He also needs to work on making the good decisions faster; he's a conservative thrower, trying to avoid an interception, and needs to trust his first instinct enough to focus on ball placement and leading the receiver.

Finally, Jabrill Peppers got a chance to meet Emmitt Smith, and Tom Brady ran into Rory McIlroy.

Basketball

Michigan showed promising growth as they headed into tournament play, and there was some hope they could put together a run. Sadly, those patches of good play weren't enough against one of the better teams in the Big Ten.

One of those assists was this beauty.

That disappeared against Wisconsin, as the Wolverines got 27 baskets on 13 assists.

Sadly, it wasn't to be. Now we have to watch Michigan State and Wisconsin face off in the final.

Now, the fans wait to see if Michigan makes the NIT, while Caris LeVert decides his future.

We wish the best of luck to Caris in his decision.

Miscellanious

Men's lacrosse beat St. Joe's in four overtimes. Here was the game winner:

Women's lacrosse took over the Big House.

They beat Niagara, 15-8, to extend their record to 4-3.

Michigan softball also (finally) played in front of a home crowd:

They lost their first home game, then bounced back with a revenge-tilted 10-1 win in 5 innings. After two more games in Ann Arbor, the softball team heads down to Columbus to play Ohio State.

The baseball team is down in Kansas, where they've also split the first two games of a three-game series. At 11-7, the team sits in the middle of conference as out-of-conference games dwindle down.

The track and field team wined and dined, then finished third in the NCAA indoor championships.

The wrestling team is getting ready for the NCAA championships this week.

...and men's gymnastics gets ready for a showdown today with #3 Illinois.

That's it for this week. Beat Ohio this week, ladies.
