"It's a lot easier being a drug dealer than an AAU coach" - this guy. Tell me something I don't know. I mean, don't think but have never tried either.
What's this about "Smotrycz's Lobstrycz"? Are Maize Rage members holding up lobsters for him?
Tonight Michigan basketball will tip off against Western Illinois at 8:30 in Crisler Arena. The leathernecks not only feature an adorable bulldog in their logo, but also an anchor AND a golden eagle. Bad-ass.
The leathernecks are led by 6-3 senior guard Tommie (dontcallmesteven) Tyler. He played nearly the entire game against Dayton, and chipped in with 15 points(4-10 shooting, 7-8 free throws). 6-7 junior forward Jack Houpt and 6' freshman gaurd Remy (doitforyourpeople) Roberts also played significant minutes against Dayton, but were somewhat less effective.
6-3 Freshman Forward Obi (the bat) Emegano was VERY effective in his 25 minutes, scoring on all 4 of his field goal attempts and converting 7-8 free throws. The leatherback's starting lineup is rounded out by 6-7 freshman center rebounding phenom Terrell (owenscherokee) Parks(8 boards against Dayton). Their major bench contributors are 6-10 sophomore center David (dontcallmegerbil) Gerbu, and 6-2 guard Billy (the great) Molinari. Yes, that's three freshmen in the starting lineup. Three summit league freshmen. That might have something to do with them getting blown out 87-58 by Dayton. They're not very good at basketball.
MSU vs. 6 Duke 3 Ohio State vs. 7 Florida 2 Kentucky vs. 12 Kansas
Anyone else watching the ESPN 25-hour marathon? I for one am glad to have basketball back in my life even if there will be no NBA.
Good games all day but three huge marquee matchups tonight. Discuss the games here if you're watching.
watched the stream versus Towson
Burke is VERY good. Looks to be a true point guard who can also drive or knock down the 3.
He may not be Morris, posting up smaller guards, but he should make the offensive flow much more consistent.......and that could be better than the way Morris ran the offense.
Horford at 250 is a different player, and Smotrycz is carrying his new bulk well, too. And Hardaway is pretty clearly an NBA player to be.
This year's hoops should be serious, and with the crop coming in next year......
Remember when Beilein got here and said he wasnt even used to recruting top 150 guys?
Game can be viewed on ESPN3.com.
Let's get the offense on track from the start tonight!
