well that's just, like, your opinion, man
Trey struggled a bit with his shot, but did fill up the stat sheet in other ways. Otherwise, some great all-around and efficient play from Timmy, Nik, and Darius. Given the up and down style of the summer league, the most impressive stat may be the only 5 combined turnovers from the Bielien disciples.
T. Hardaway - 17 pts (6-12 fg), 4 reb, 3 ast, 3 stl, 1 to
N. Stauskas - 15 pts (6-8 fg), 3 reb, 2 ast, 2 to
D. Morris - 19 pts (7-12 fg), 4 reb, 4 ast, 1 to
T. Burke - 2 pts (0-6 fg), 6 reb, 6 ast, 1 stl, 1 to
GRob/JMo play at 4:30PM today and Trey plays again 8:30PM.
5 star recruit Emmanuel Mudiay is leaving SMU to play overseas per Garry Parrish. Michigan is scheduled to play SMU in December.
There is a nice Mark Donnal story on Mlive.com . The story mentions how difficult it was for him not to play last year as he was holding his own against the starters.
The quote I liked to see was this:
Because of that, Donnal opted to attend both U-M summer sessions this offseason. He remained on campus, emulating last summer’s regiment of Nik Stauskas and Caris LeVert that was often cited for their breakout 2013-14 campaigns. Joined by Irvin, LeVert (who is recovering from injury) and sophomore point Derrick Walton Jr., Donnal logged added hours in the gym and on the court. The group visited with U-M strength and conditioning coach Jon Sanderson “nearly every day,” in Donnal’s estimation. Three days a week focused on weight lifting. Some days consisted primarily of stretching, agility drills or endurance training.
Donnal noted his biggest emphasis has been “developing my body and fine-tuning everything -- working on post moves and making sure my jumper is alright.”
It sounds like he is confident and ready to go.
Not a bad stat linr for Nik. Sounds like he is shaking up the roster. Two steals and two blocks? Hard work, talent, and confidence is going to add up to a long NBA career.
"Stauskas posted 14 points on 4-of-9 shooting, tying forward Quincy Acy for the team lead in scoring, and added three assists, two steals, two blocks and three turnovers."
I just heard a report on TV that Lebron is returning to Cleveland. He made a statement to Sports Illustrated.
