While playing 31 minutes, scoring 18 points, and grabbing 13 rebounds (6 offensive!), Mitch also managed to drop this sweet dime. (Someone, please feel free to embed.)
I hate you, NCAA.
This is something that crossed my mind when I saw that Thornton will visit Kentucky. A guy like Calipari probably has no qualms with negative recruiting, but what would he say? We've got a red hot coaching staff committed to stay together till '19, world class facilities, world class academics, great NBA opportunities, and incredible fans/students/alumni. So what does the guy say?
1) Sure, they're great with development, but you're already Elite. We won't ask you to work.
2) He's only had 5back-to-back tourney teams. That's not THAT many.
I can't think of any.
B1G teams: MSU #13, Iowa #15, Wisconsin #16, Michigan #20, OSU #24
B1G teams: MSU #14, Iowa #15, Wisconsin #18, Michigan #20, OSU #23
I'm not sure how to embed, but here is a video with mostly the same clips from the front page video of Stauskas. I've just removed the play-by-play and added an appropriate song ("You Can't Stop Me" -Andy Mineo). If mods deem this unworthy because of the front page post that's fine, I just figured some here would like it and it takes 20 seconds to post. Go Blue!
It's just one voter but I expect Michigan will end up in the top 10 in this weeks ranking when they are released later today. Michigan is currently Kenpom #8 and RPI #13.
*Edited RPI is #13 not #12
