INDIANAPOLIS -- No. 8 Michigan ended 15 years of Big Ten tournament frustration Saturday. Theres still some work to do before it can really celebrate. After blowing a 12-point second-half lead against its most bitter rival, Michigan closed the game with a 7-1 run and survived a potential tying 3-pointer in the closing seconds for its first tourney win over No. 24 Ohio State, 72-69. "We werent thinking about winning the Big Ten Conference championship, the tournament," Big Ten player of the year Nik Stauskas said. "We were thinking about just beating Ohio State. This is a rivalry game." For the Big Ten regular-season champs, it was a big moment. Michigan (25-7) hadnt won a semifinal game since 1998, when it won the inaugural tourney title only to vacate it because of NCAA rules violations. Since then, the Wolverines hadnt even won two straight games in the league tourney and had lost all six times it played the dreaded Buckeyes in Indianapolis or Chicago. Not this time. The top-seeded Wolverines started the game with an offensive flurry and ended it with a stout defensive stretch that ended with Buckeyes guard Aaron Craft losing control of the ball as he tried a 3-pointer that could have forced overtime. Instead, the Wolverines came up with the loose ball to eliminate the conferences defending tourney champion. Stauskas finished with 18 points. Ohio native Caris LeVert had 17 points and seven rebounds and Glenn Robinson III wound up with 11 points, including two free throws that gave Michigan the lead for good with 2:55 to play. The Wolverines won their seventh straight in large part because they were 12 of 23 on 3-pointers against the Big Tens top-rated 3-point defence and didnt allow a basket over the final four minutes. The only thing sweeter than beating the Buckeyes would be winning Sundays title game against No. 22 Michigan State. The Wolverines won both games against the third-seeded Spartans this season. Michigan State advanced with an 85-73 win over second-seeded Wisconsin in the second semifinal. "Those are the three best defensive teams in our league. Theyre just really difficult to score points on," coach John Beilein said, referring to the Badgers, Buckeyes and Spartans. But getting to Sunday wasnt easy, either. Michigan blew a 13-point lead in Fridays quarterfinal victory, surviving a scare from ninth-seeded Illinois when Jordan Morgans layup rolled in with 7.9 seconds to go and Illinois guard Tracy Abrams missed a driving layup at the buzzer. It was more of the same Saturday. Michigan led by as much as 16 in the first half and 12 in the second and still needed another late miscue to seal the win. Ohio State (25-9) was led by LaQuinton Ross with 19 points and Shannon Scott with 18, nearly pulling off a second stunning comeback in two days. After digging out of an 18-point deficit to beat Nebraska in Fridays quarterfinals, the Buckeyes wound up losing for only the third time in 10 games. "I feel like as a team when our heads underwater, we start fighting more," Scott said. "We started doing that again today." Ohio State, which struggled to open both halves, just couldnt finish this one off. Michigan opened the game with three straight 3s and led 15-2 after its opening flurry. The Buckeyes clawed back late in the half, getting within 41-37. But Ohio State gave up three more 3s to open the second half, allowing the Spartans to push the lead to 54-42 with 16:02 left. Again the Buckeyes rallied, using a 10-2 spurt that ended with Sam Thompsons alley-oop dunk, giving Ohio State its first lead at 61-60. Thats when last years national runner-up buckled down defensively. Michigan cut the Ohio State lead to 68-67 on an 18-foot jumper from Stauskas and regained the lead when Robinson made the two free throws. The Buckeyes couldnt get anything to go over the final four minutes, missing five straight shots and three of four free throws before Craft said the ball slipped out of his hands at the end. "I feel so fortunate right now," Beilein said. "You look at so many of our games down the stretch here, theyve ended just like this and the ball keeps bouncing our way. You only can have that type of luck if you have guys like these guys sitting next to me. They make enough smart plays to keep you in the game, and some games the ball will just bounce your way." Derick Brassard Jersey . Pospisil, from Vancouver, and Sock will compete for the title against defending champions and top seeds Bob and Mike Bryan of the United States, who defeated the 12th-seeded French duo of Michael Llodra and Nicolas Mahut 7-6 (4), 6-3, 6-2. Erik Karlsson Jersey . Not bad for a defenceman. The goal, that is. Although the shuffling dance steps werent bad, either. Barrie scored 55 seconds into overtime, Semyon Varlamov stopped 29 shots, and the Avalanche moved a step closer to their first playoff berth in four years with a 3-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night. http://www.hockeysenatorsonline.us/clarke-macarthur-hockey-jersey/. Clevelands manager had just watched his team lose 5-3 to Kansas City, which completed a 2-6 homestand and dropped the Indians 2 1/2 games behind Detroit in the AL Central. Johnny Oduya Jersey .com) - Hassan Whiteside scored 20 points with nine rebounds in the Miami Heats 83-75 win over the Boston Celtics on Sunday. Logan Brown Jersey . The Los Angeles Clippers showed them just how ugly that life could be. Jared Dudley scored a season-high 21 points, Chris Paul added 16 points and 17 assists, and the Clippers jumped all over the Bulls in Roses absence for a 121-82 victory Sunday.Every sport has a list of unwritten rules; a unique code of conduct by which the game is expected to be played. These rules get passed down from generation to generation, but you cant actually find them anywhere - until now. With a nod to my TSN colleagues and followers on Twitter, here are the Unwritten Rules of Football. Rule #1 - Respect the rules. Rule #2 - Play until you hear the whistle. Rule #3 - Football boots are black and white and made from leather. *If you wear anything else, expect to be kicked by your opponents and called a poseur by your teammates. Unless you are Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, in which case, carry on. Rule #4 - Socks are to be pulled up to the knee and no further. *See rule #3. Rule #5 - The only player on the field who should be wearing gloves - regardless of the weather conditions - is the goalkeeper.*Again, see rule #3. Rule #6 - Magic spray is actually magic. Rule #7 - If youre injured, get off the field. If youre hurt, suck it up. Rule #8 - Unless you were on the terraces as a boy supporting the team you now play for, do not kiss the badge. Ever. Rule #9 - Classy players never celebrate when they score against their former teams. Rule #10 - If a player misses an easy chance, he must immediately look at the ground and inspect it for any clumps of turf. If he finds nothing amiss, he must then inspect his boots to determine the exact cause of the miss. Rule #11 - When playing the offside trap, the chances of getting the call are directly proportional to the ability of the back four to each raise one arm and shout "OFFSIDE!" in unison. Rule #12 - If the offside trap doesnt work, blame the fullback. Rule #13 - All corner kick takers must raise one arm before taking the kick. This is the universal signal for "Im taking the kick now!" Rule #14 - Players must always acknowledge their supporters at the conclusion of a game by walking towards them and applauding. Dont overdo it though, or you will be ridiculed by your teammates for being "busy". Rule #15 - When losing a cup game, goalkeepers must always come up for corner kicks in stoppage time, regardless of the fact that they have never won a header in their lives. Rule #16 - Under no circumstances are defenders allowed to wear anything but short sleeved shirts. *This rule was passed directly to me by former England captain, Terry Butcher.dddddddddddd As such, it is written in stone. Rule #17 - Goalkeepers are a strange breed. Accept it - they will never change. Rule #18 - Nutmegs only count if you collect the ball on the other side. Rule #19 - Cuts that require stitches do not also require an aesthetic to "numb the pain". Stitch it up and get back in the game. Rule #20 - Any foul, no matter how egregious, must always be protested by the offending player, usually by exclaiming the following: "But I got the ball, ref!" Rule #21 - Goalkeepers must always spit into the palms of their gloves at the beginning of each half, must smack the bottom of their boots against each post, must have a water bottle in their goal and must have a towel that they drape in the side netting of their goal (regardless of the weather conditions). *See rule #17 Rule #22 - 20 consecutive passes in a rondo means that both defenders stay in twice. Being nutmegged in a rondo means that the victim stays in twice. Rule #23 - When a defender makes a spectacular block, he is not allowed to show any outward signs of being in excruciating pain. He must immediately start organizing his teammates by pointing to the opponents and yelling "Pick up!" Rule #24 - Any manager that is given a "vote of confidence" from his chairman should immediately update his resumé. Rule #25 - What is said in the dressing room, stays in the dressing room. Rule #26 - After scoring a goal, never point to the name on the back of your shirt - its the one on the front that matters. Rule #27 - If a player goes down with injury, kick the ball into touch. If the opponent does this for your team, throw it back to them when play resumes. Rule #28 - If an opponent commits a foul on your teammate, do not wave an imaginary card at the referee. Rule #29 - Diving should be done into a swimming pool, river, lake or ocean. Not on grass. Rule #30 - If a Canadian-born player switches their international allegiance to another country to further their professional career, fans are free to call them a traitor. Alternatively, fans can say that the player has "pulled a Hargreaves" or "pulled a Leroux".
