Wounded Warrior Project is the beneficiary of the 2K Classic. The mission of Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is to honor and empower wounded warriors.

For all the talk of Nik being a potential bust in the NBA, it was nice to see him turn in a good game last night. In a 4 point victory, he logged 24 minutes, shot very well from the field with a couple 3's, and scored 14. I'm sure he could contribute more in terms of assists and boards, but this is still a nice night. He's my favorite player of all time, passing Glen Rice and Jalen, and I hope this is the beginning of a breakthrough in his NBA career.
Opening night for Team 101, let's see what this team is all about!

I have 4 tickets in section 211 row 35 for tonight's basketball game against Howard. I can't use the tickets an insist that you use the tickets if you win. If you are not interested in the tickets, state in the subject that you don't want the tickets. With all that said here we go: the mgoblogger that correctly answers all three trivia questions gets the tickets:
1. Howard has many notable alums, one was the first African-American Supreme Court Justice and the other is a sportscaster born in Royal Oak, MI and notable for his work on Fox Sports.
2. John Beilein has coached 5 of the top 10 players in Michigan Basketball History in terms of 3pt FG's made in a career. With 27 triples this player would move into 4th place all time, and become the player with the most career 3pt FG's under John Beilein. Who is this player?
3. How many 1000 point scorers has Michigan Basketball had in their long history? How many have been coached by Beilein?
I will identify the winner and get their email then.
Go Blue! And if you can get out and see the basketball team! I won't go as far as the elder Dakich, but I do think this team will surprise some people and they deserve our support.
