On a cold and snowy day, thought I'd post something heartwarming - some recent highlights from 2017 bball commit Isaiah Livers. When he committed, there were a few other prospects at the same position the coaches were heavily pursuing (Kyle Young, Thomas Kithier, etc) and it wasn't clear who the best choice would be. We took the first one to jump on board, and I'm pretty optimistic Beilein got the right one after seeing these highlights.
Seems like Liver's size and athleticism will make him an immediate impact guy, something Beilein has sorely lacked recently from his freshman. Though I'd assume his ideal spot is the 4, it'd be great if he has tight enough handles to play the 3 at 6'8". Someone who's actually seen him in person may be able to offer more insight there. Would be pretty cool to be able to roll out a Simpson/Matthews/Livers/Wilson/Wagner lineup. That's a ton of size and a great group of athletes.
H/T to poster MattD for putting this on YouTube.
After watching UCLA humble our Wolverines with their superior recruits, I wondered what NCAA basketball teams are the dirtiest while recruiting? When I lived in Arizona three years ago, I got to be friends with my dentist whom is still best friends, former roommate, and fraternity brother with one of the "Big 12" head basketball coaches. He shared with me that the dirtiest program that he recruits against is "Duke". That surprised me but it came from a great source straight up. Any thoughts ?
Apparently most of the board is on the wagon, drying their respective livers out as we went from near-daily drinking threads to zero. It is a beautiful, snowy winter day up here. Fire is lit and the BBQ is about to be lit, and some red pop about to be had.
Michigan's hoops forturnes could take a great turn tonight, or it might be one of those 'not in the face' type of games.
Peppers has a slim shot at the Heisman.
The drinking lamp is lit: What is in your glass/cup?
I'm debating buying on stubhub today or just going down and scalping the day of. Any experiences at Pauly Pavilion on whether decent seats can be had cheaply prior to tip off? Probably need to bite the bullet and buy them online.
In general, how do people go about getting away tickets? Our ticket office doesn't get an allotment for alumnae (unlike football).
Levert played in his first NBA game last night for the Nets. He is just now returning from his injury suffered last season.
0 for 3 shooting, but 3 steals and 4 rebounds in 9 minutes.
