Mark Donnal not returning for 5th year

Seems like the writing had been on the wall here but Beilein has made it official listing Donnal among the 5 players graduating and leaving along with Walton, Irvin, Lonergan, & Dakich.

Heres to hoping Teske can figure out how to work his body by next season and/or Davis being a revelation.

In a similar article, was freep so won't link, Beilein said he expects this incoming freshman class to contribute more early on than the current one. He specifically mentions Eli Brooks as a kid who will play right away. Were going to definitely need guard help with Walton being gone and Xavier still finding his game at the college level.

Yes, attendance and ratings for hoop are down, but, we need to keep our voting UP!

Listed first, but still with the same 24% Painter has.

 

This round ends Sunday, let's get some distance between us and second place.

Bizarre.

We're a 9 seed against 8 VCU in Buffalo with a second round game against 1 Villanova

Jerry Palm has us as a 9 seed against Iowa State in SLC with #1 Gonzaga in the second round.

DRatings has us in as a 10 seed.

We are not listed as a Last Four In or Last Four Byes in any of these.

I'm so happy a watched MBB (in spite of the outcome) last night instead of the NBA Side Ring Circus called the All Star Game. I read this morning the final score was 192-182. I watched some highlights of the dunk fest. To call it a 'game' is surely a jest. Does anyone even care about that game any more? At one point Steph Curry was laying on the floor like a prop and and guys were jumping over him to dunk like a Globetrotter's game.

Well, that was rough. Teddy Valentine, notorious thunderdouche, completely controlled that game. Ticky tack fouls resulted in insurmountable foul trouble for a number of M players. It's just a bad look for the Big Ten to have officiating this poor seemingly everytime a team travels outside of their home court. Wow.

Obligitory "make your free throws and box out" wins the game observation here. You could very easily argue that we did not deserve to win this game, but what you can't argue is that we deserved to get a hell of a lot better officiating than we did. Image result for teddy valentine
