at least it's not just us?
Scout updated its 2013 basketball rankings today. The notable change is Zak Irvin coming in at No. 62 overall. Scout previously had him unranked and was the lone site to not have Irvin in its top 100. Walton is at No. 43 and Donnal is at No. 80. All three are four-stars.
I don't have a Scout account, but here is a breakdown from AA.com.
This is turning out to be another special class. Beilein and his assistants have really done their homework on the recruiting trail. Getting in on these recruits early and finding underrated recruits before they shoot up the rankings is a tremendous asset to our program.
Edit: Yep, 2013. I'm dumb.
The Wolverines won a share of their first Big Ten basketball title since 1986 last season, sharing the crown with rivals Michigan State and Ohio State.
Michigan will have to replace Novak and Douglass, but the team does get the services of both Hardaway and Burke back. The Wolverines also add a top-rated freshman class, including Glenn Robinson III, Mitch McGary, Nik Stauskas, Spike Albrecht and Caris LeVert.
The Wolverines have been given a preseason ranking of No. 5 by both ESPN.com and CBSsports.com.
They definitely have the talent to repeat.
Lithuania just hit a 3 to go up two with 6 to go. Now up 2 with 5:45 to go.
Some pretty terrible defense by USA throughout. That and poor three point shooting have made this one a barn burner.
EDIT: US pulls away after finally hitting some threes.
EDIT 2: Changed title to cover all Olympics for the day.
And how about Serena making Sharapova look silly?
ESPN announced today that Jalen Rose will replace Hubert Davis on ESPN College Gameday. He will still serve as an NBA analyst during the NBA Playoffs.
Actually think Rose and Jay Bilas will make a good analyst combo. Their crew of the underrated Rece Davis, Digger Phelps, Bilas, & Rose may even surpass the quality of the ESPN College Football Gameday crew now.
Glad to hear he is holding his own in the summer league...
Second-year player Darius Morris started all five of the Lakers summer league games and averaged the following stats:
28.6 MPG, 15.2 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 4.2 APG, 37% FG, 27% 3PT, 80% FT
Morris led the Lakers in total points, total assists, and finished an impressive third in total rebounds, showcasing his all-around game.
In other news, 8 football recruits have chosen the good guys over OSU in the class of 2013, per my calculations. Yet we still haven't won a head to head recruiting battle against OSU in the Rivals Era, as none of the OSU offers were actually committable.
