Todays feature on Austin Davis is very positive. His coach says he has great hands and great footwork.
Not sure if link will work.
up 30% to 12% over Stephen Austin coach
Not a memorable game but a win is a win. Walton played great but we need more consistency from everyone. Most important we need LeVert badly. Its painful but Enjoy!
A slight changeup from the daily "Vote Beilein" update; the team will be honoring the Chad Tough Foundation at a SOLD OUT Crisler Center on Saturday. This is a really great move; pediatric cancer sucks and this movement needs all the publicity it can get. Vote for Coach Beilein and Chad Tough here!

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan men's basketball head coach John Beilein announced today (Thursday, Feb. 11), that he, along with his staff, players and members of the Maize Rage, will honor the Chad Tough Foundation by wearing specialty #ChadTough T-shirts for Saturday's (Feb. 13) game against Purdue.
"All of us were moved by the fight young Chad Carr demonstrated against DIPG -- a terrible disease that has left zero survivors," said Beilein. "Kathleen and I are driven to win the $100,000 prize from the ESPN Infiniti Coaches Challenge for DIPG research.
"Wearing these T-shirts is just one small way we can help bring awareness to the cause of the Chad Tough Foundation. We need to win this battle for every child who has fought or is fighting pediatric brain tumors."
The #ChadTough T-shirts are a continued tie-in with Beilein's campaign to raise money for the foundation as part of the ESPN Infiniti Coaches Charity Challenge. Wolverine fans are encouraged to vote every day and will be able to purchase #ChadTough T-shirts themselves at the Crisler M-Den locations as well as through the Chad Tough Foundation.
The Chad Tough Foundation is committed to raising funds and awareness for pediatric brain tumors with an emphasis on Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). The foundation is named after Chad Carr, the five-year-old son of Jason and Tammi and grandson of former University of Michigan head football coach Lloyd Carr, who fought DIPG for 14 months before passing away on Nov. 23, 2015.

Tipoff against the Boilermakers is scheduled for 2 p.m., with the game broadcast on ESPN2.
