Props to the Student Section from UM
I think this article in the Ann Arbor News went by without anyone's notice, but I thought it was worth a mention here. The Michigan players apparently attributed our crowd noise for getting them out of their game:
"There was just a lot of miscommunication, whether it was man or zone,'' sophomore DeShawn Sims said. "We've just got to do a better job. ... Coach prepared us and told us the stuff we were going to run. We just got rattled and confused out there by the crowd.''It should be noted that Sims was the Big Ten player of the week and was limited to one point on Thursday. There was also this gem from the article:
For one moment, Georgetown's student section chanted: "Where's your men's team?''Clearly this level of enthusiasm and student attendance is remarkable for a November game. I don't remember having ever seen Hoya students so loud this early. For too long, our home court advantage has been neutral at best. With the lower bowl sold out and the student sections filled, it looks like this is finally changing.
