Great news from UMHoops. Quote from a Hatch family spokesman:
Austin Hatch has been conditionally released by his medical team to begin practicing with the Canterbury High School basketball program. The first official practice is today, however, Austin is limited to the types of drills he can participate in at this time. Although everyone is encouraged by the progress he continues to make, Austin and his family ask that you do not approach him for interviews at this time.
Some further info from Baumgardner:
To piggyback off @UMhoops report, Hatch family spokesman says it's still not determined whether Austin will play HS bball this season.
Hatch family and folks at Canterbury are still taking it day by day, but say Austin is making great progress.
Baumgardner followed up with this article: Michigan recruit Austin Hatch cleared to practice, still unsure if he'll play prep hoops this season
The family spokesman said Hatch would be participating in "about half" of his teams drills Monday, which is the first day Indiana high school basketball teams are able to practice.
It's still unclear if Hatch will play this season for Canterbury.
"We're taking each day as it comes," the spokesman said. "He's making great progress, but we're not looking any further than today."
UPDATE: Below is a WANE-TV video with clips of Austin Hatch practicing with his team yesterday, plus an interview with his high school coach, taken from this page: Hatch, Cavs Return To Practice Floor
He looks good in the video, especially considering all he's been through.
There's also a second video on the page, with a longer interview with the coach (with his team practicing in the background) in which he talks a bit more about Hatch, starting around the 2:48 mark.
Slippery Rock Exhibition
On Friday night, the Michigan women's basketball team defeated Slippery Rock 106-35 in their lone exhibition game of the the 2012-13 campaign. The more up-tempo style of offense that Kim Barnes Arico is known for was clearly evident and is the focus of this Daily article. The one thing that surprised me was the coach starting sophomore Brenae Harris at point guard rather than highly touted freshman Madison Ristovski. Harris did fine, however, scoring 16 points on 7-8 shooting and also had 3 assists and just 1 turnover plus 3 steals. Ristovski actually ended playing more minutes than Harris (25 vs. 22), though, so that starting spot is probably still up for grabs. Ristovski tallied 10 points on 4-6 shooting, along with 4 assists, just 1 turnover, and 2 rebounds.
Jenny Ryan Named Captain
Prior to the exhibition, senior guard Jenny Ryan was named team captain.
"After talking to our players today about leadership and who we want to lead this team, we gave them the opportunity to vote on a captain," Barnes Arico said. "I don't think there is any doubt in anyone's mind that she is the person that we want to lead this team. She is a coach on the floor; she is a coach in the locker room and just has a passion to be the best at everything she does. She is a team first kind of kid. I think that it was a very good selection."
AMWBHG Strikes Again
This previous women's hoops update noted that 7 out of the 15 players on the 2012-13 roster have suffered ACL injuries either during their Michigan career or in the year prior to their arrival in Ann Arbor. Make that 8. A few days ago, junior forward Kendra Seto tore an ACL, ending her season. Four players on the team thus might have to sit out this season with ACL injuries, as Val Driscoll and Kelsey Mitchell are definitely out, and freshman Rebecca Lyttle, who tore an ACL during her senior year in high school, is still recovering and was in street clothes for the exhibition game. An unbelievable string of bad luck for the team.
