“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
"Indiana announced Thursday that the former Arizona State guard will transfer to Bloomington and enroll in graduate school so he can be eligible immediately next season. Gordon, an Indianapolis native, is the brother of former Indiana star and NBA guard Eric Gordon."
This guy just does not stay at one place for very long (began career at Liberty), but a good move for him. Averaged 10.1 ppg last year for the Sun Devils, and could come in and help fortify a young Indiana team. Getting to play in your home state in front of friends and family is an added bonus as well.

According to ESPN’s Chad Ford, Hardaway has been extremely impressive at pre-draft workouts, not only competing against fellow guard prospects such as Isaiah Canaan, but besting them. Ford called Hardaway “the best player on the floor for all two hours” of a workout that he watched on Tuesday.
Hardaway has all the physical tools to be a dominant NBA player. Hopefully he can put it all together in the NBA.
ESPN's Fran Fraschilla has Trey Burke as the top PG in this year's NBA draft. (Duh)
He has him ahead of CJ McCollum of Lehigh. One might says he has Burke Lehigher on his list. (Cringe)
Fraschilla compares him to last year's ROY, Damian Lillard in that he might be able to start at PG right away for a lottery team.
Because Burke will be selected by a team in the lottery that will have a specific need for the position, he has a chance to have the same impact that the Blazers' Rookie of the Year, Damian Lillard had this past season. He'll likely start immediately, but I am not sure even he and his great will to win can affect a team's improvement right away.
Gene Smith displays his backbone (or lack thereof) in comments regarding Ohio basketball scheduling Michigan in the non-conference, after missing the game @ Ann Arbor this coming season. While being obviously against the measure, he goes on to say "We're not chicken." Lots of chicken in the B1G news this week...
For those who may have missed it, our own Jalen Rose made an appearance on Tosh.0 Tuesday night. Tosh was making fun of a ginger (turns out he's from Michigan) who made a video of his greatest Nerf dunks. Jalen, Spud Webb, Bill Simmons, etc all discuss the greatness of this kid's dunking ability.

Heads up- For those watching at work, there are a couple of swear words, so you may want to close your office door, or turn down the volume on the speakers. Enjoy.
