Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
Interesting thought I had today. We are spoiled with great coaches in football and have an obvious choice of two in terms of who the best football coach was. Either Yost or Bo I would think most people would say. Hockey, Baseball, Softball are all no-contests.
But what about basketball? Michigan really hasn't had an elite coach that was the face of the program.
The winningest is Johnny Orr. But he ditched the program. Same with Frieder. My vote would probably be Dave Strack. He had B1G titles, Final Fours, Cazzie Russell & Bill Buntin.
Steve Fisher if you think about it wasn't that great of a coach. A great recruiter but really underachieved most of his career (save the Fab Five years). No B1G titles, no national championships that he can say were 100% his.
1989-90, 1994-95, 1995-96 all ended in disaster in the tourney. 1990-91 and 1996-97 were debacles from the start. 1997-98 I consider his team just like 1988-89 I consider Frieder's.
Great NCAA Tournament run in 1989, but other than that.....meh. The Fab Five were awesome but again, the most they ever won was a couple of regional titles.
What say you? I think this is a really good question and tough one at the same time.
Tim Hardaway Jr. was the top scorer for the New York Knicks with 13 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, 1 turnover, and 3 fouls. He made 4 of 12 field goals, 4 of 5 free throws, and 1 of 6 three-point attempts.
Unfortunately, the New Orleans Pelicans won the close matchup 77-72.

Title nearly says it all. Trey was 3-15 from the field (starting 3-5 and then missing his last ten shots), 0-5 from three (with all of those attempts coming in the second half), and 2-2 from the line. He only had one turnover and played 26 minutes.
Mississippi has indefinitely suspended guard Marshall Henderson for a violation of team rules, the school announced Wednesday.
The suspension is a result of multiple failed drug tests, sources told ESPN's Jeff Goodman.
... and Ole Miss knew that he was undisciplined and had numerous run-ins with the law.
Henderson came to Ole Miss with a history of discipline problems. He was arrested in both 2009 and 2011 and served time in jail after the second arrest because he violated his probation. Ole Miss has said the coaches were aware of Henderson's past when he signed with the program.
So far Burke is 2-4 and 1-3 from 3.
Final Stat Line:
1-6 from 3
Looked much better in his 2nd game. Trey and his team defintely still have a long way to go.
