Manny Harris lead the Cavs in points tonight against the Pistons. It's nice to see a former Wolverine catch a break in his homecoming.
Manny's line: 23 mins, 6-9 shooting, 3-5 from three, 3 reb, 1 block, and 18 pts.
Hopefully he is able to prove his worth over the last part of the season and solidify a roster spot! Go Blue!
JD Weatherspoon and Jordan Sibert have been granted their release by Ohio. The timing is great for schadenfreude because Ohio didn't have any schollies available so they weren't really recruiting anyone for this class and lost out on the few big names they wanted for Sullinger's assumed (now available) vacancy. They are only in play for one HS recruit, Della Valle is there starting today, and two transferring freshmen. It's a good thing Matta doesn't use his bench since he'll only have 9 scholarship players next year.
Joe Lunardi has posted a way too early bracket for the NCAA Basketball tourney next year. He has Michigan as a 3 seed in the West with a first round match against Butler with possible games against #6 Gonzaga, #2 Baylor and #1 Kentucky.
Other Big Ten team seeds include Indiana with the overall #1, State as a 2, Ohio as a 4, Wisconsin as a 4, Minnesota as an 8, and Purdue as an 11 as well as OHIO(!) as a 9 seed.
Maybe the Hornets will have a better chance to thrive.
Title sums it up. MSU center Derrick Nix was reinstated to MSU's basketball program assuming he adheres to Izzo's unannounced "standards" for his return. Apparently in the last two weeks, Izzo didn't take the time to decide if a suspension was appropriate for his player, who was caught driving while impaired under the influence of an illegal drug.
