somehow we're only 124th
[ED-Seth: As of 3:15 still 2 left (4 given away so far) Guess what, another reader offered 2 tix for tonight if anyone wants. You'll be 8 rows up from me]
I have 2 tickets to tonight's game (vs Bucknell @ 8pm) and Thursday's game (vs Mercer @ 6pm) that I can't use (such as life with a baby). Tickets are section 221 row 37. Since I'm basically the last of my friends that still live in Ann Arbor now, don't know many people to give them to, so I thought I would share with the board if anyone can put them to good use.
Just leave your email, which game you'd like, and I'll send you an email to confirm. I can transfer them via email. First come, first serve.
Maybe as added fun, guess the total # of points the freshmen on the team will score tonight, and which one of them will lead in scoring. I'm sure I'll have other games I won't be able to attend, so winner gets dibs on the next round!
Mods: sorry if this clutters up board, I'll confirm once the tix are spoken for, and feel free to delete.
Michigan tipped off the season with a 92-68 victory over Hillsdale. For those who missed the game. Enjoy GOB LUE!!!
The NBA D-League season starts this week. I just scoured every roster, and only one former Wolverine is there: Manny Harris is a member of the Los Angeles D-Fenders.
But you'll find plenty of OSU and MSU players in the D-League. Ex-Spartans Kalin Lucas, Keith Appling and Durrell Summers are all in the D-League, as are OSU's William Buford, Lenzelle Smith and (yes!) Aaron Craft.
Moral of the story: Beilein is putting guys into the NBA, while Izzo and Matta are putting players into the D-League.
I know there's a ton of differences and I'll be honestly, I was not really in tune to M basketball when Crawford was here....BUT after remembering threads about comparing Caris' game to other players last year and then seeing a Crawford highlight video, their games seem very similar.
Thoughts? I just want to talk about basketball and I think Caris is about to blow up!
I'll let others take care of the embedding for me if anyone cares, but this is the highlight video of Crawford I was watching. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8b-m0CZwS3g
