Detroit Pistons to hold open practice at Crisler

Detroit Pistons to hold open practice at Crisler

Submitted by scanner blue on September 12th, 2018 at 10:41 PM

I just received an email from the basketball staff saying the Detroit Pistons will have an open practice on Saturday, September 29. Doors open at 11:00 am with practice running from 12:00-2:00pm.

Having GRIII as a Piston is paying off. If I was a kid I'd be begging my parents, neighbors...anyone to take me to this.

No word, but I'm assuming it is free.

MBB is on a boat.  Teske wearing normal human size goggles when he is not a normal human size. Brazdeikis showing the articles about him being jacked for a freshmen are not fluff. Jordan Poole wearing snowboarding goggles.  

This team is going to be so fun to watch.

Poole: 10 points
Brazdeikis: 8
Matthews: 7
Johns, Davis, and Brooks: 4 each
Teske: 2

Teske and Simpson limited due to foul trouble.

So as the basketball is in Spain, I figured I'd talk about just how recognizable the MBB program is around the world. I've done some research vigorously with these stats over the years for the basketball program to see just how storied and prestigious we've become in that sport
