Everything Juwan Howard said after Michigan’s win over Jackson State

On the improved three-point taking pictures in the course of the recreation

I’d simply say guys made photographs. They made photographs. Those open seems that we missed, they had been good photographs. Sometimes it simply occurs that method. I really like the truth that our guys stick with it. Did not hold their heads down and had the following play mentality. With the following store mentality, that helps. In the second half, we might have simply put our heads down and said, you recognize what, the photographs will not be going or I’m afraid to shoot the shot that is open. React to how the protection is enjoying you. Proud to see that they ran how the protection was enjoying them, and positive sufficient, basketball gods. It occurs. Starts rolling in.

On the distinction between the primary and final 5 minutes of the sport

All of them are an indication of progress. The first 5 minutes, like I touched on, the ball wasn’t moving into however they had been nonetheless enjoying laborious. You see the place the lead is, both it was a two-point lead by us or it was a two-point lead by Jackson State. I knew coming in that Jackson State was coming to compete as a result of they’ve a coach who—you possibly can hear the instructing, I might hearken to the instructing that is taking place on the sidelines. His group was ready for this recreation. The final 5 minutes, they made some photographs and there have been a few turnovers by us which had been uncharacteristic turnovers. We’ll develop from it.

On issues to work on with rebounding

Yes, we misplaced the rebounding battle by six. We have three days to arrange for it as a result of I do know we’ve a recreation that is on Tuesday. Not wanting too far forward as a result of we need to get pleasure from this vacation one of the simplest ways we are able to. We’ll get higher with it.

On Hunter Dickinson’s standing

I’m unsure. I do know he left however he got here again. It was nice to see the large fella was wholesome sufficient to hitch us. The second half, as you noticed, he performed some massive minutes within the second half and was extraordinarily efficient, too.

On points with the offense

Just photographs did not fall.

On whether or not pulling all 5 starters directly is sending a message

We have a deep group. We have a really deep group. We have Tarris Reed Jr., Duggie McDaniel, Joey Baker, Youssef, Jace and also you even have Isaiah over there and Will Tschetter. The record retains rising. Gregg. There are going to be occasions the place we have to permit these 5 guys some relaxation and, as you possibly can see, after they received again in, they went on one other run.

On how the coaches approached enjoying the sport when Dickinson was within the locker room

We have Tarris Reed Jr. who was in a position to fill in when Hunter went out. It’s all the time the following man up mentality.

On taking pictures three-pointers

You have open seems. When you get open seems, our younger males are sensible sufficient to have the ability to take what the protection offers them. We shot 30 threes, I do not discover something fallacious with that. 40%? I’ll take that any day.

On double-digit blocks

We have guys which might be very aggressive. They take the one-on-one problem and so they additionally do an excellent job of contesting photographs. That’s fairly elite stage to have the opportunity time—for instance, Jett. I believe he could have up to now 9 on-ball blocks. If not 9, not less than seven for positive. That’s laborious to do with out fouling. It says that he is in a position to along with his size and in addition timing, when a man goes by his launch, to leap up and contest with out fouling. Sometimes you may see guys fouling the shooters and that is one thing we do not educate. Kobe is one other one. Some blocks on the ball, that is one thing a whole lot of people do not speak about. You can see these guys rising as two-way gamers.

On whether or not he is pleased with the place the group is at

It’s early within the season. I’m positive a whole lot of groups like us will not be enjoying their finest basketball. We will get higher and higher, game-by-game. I have a look at each recreation that we play as high-profile opponents.
