Moe Wagner articles on being hated by opposing fans & playing Spurs at 17 yrs old

Submitted by PeteM on March 30th, 2018 at 9:02 AM

Thought these were both interesting articles.  The first talks about how Wagner matches up to Krutwig, and how he embraces being hated by opposing fans.  The 2nd is from a local San Antonio site and talks about he got to play the Spurs with his club team as a 17 year old when they travelled to Germany, which would have to have been an incredible experience in high school.

Final Four in Charleston SC - Bar Recommendations

Final Four in Charleston SC - Bar Recommendations

I'll be in SC for the game - hoping someone can suggest an establishment to watch with fellow Wolverines. I've looked online and found two recommendations - one from an old Reddit post which claims the Carolina Ale House downtown, and a Facebook group claiming Southern Roots BBQ in West Ashley. After looking at Google photos from inside both bars, I have yet to see a block M anywhere. Hoping someone from the MGoCommunity can help find the ideal viewing location. Go Blue!

We are now down to the wire; Wolverines are gathering in San Antonio to cheer on this marvelous group of young men. Michigan is so blessed to have John Beilein for a coach - to show how (in this unsettling time for college basketball) things can be done the right way. As a coach, as a teacher, and as a man he will lead the Wolverines to victory on Saturday with class and style. Go Blue!!

They are on ESPN2 right now.

Katelyn Flaherty of Michigan is shooting in women’s three point competition. She also participated in a team shots challenge a few minutes ago.

Edit: Flaherty wins the womens’s competition and then comes up short against the men’s champion from William’s and Mary.

5* Syracuse recruit Bazley decommits; will head straight to G League

In what could be the first of many defections straight to the pros, 5* Syracuse recruit Darius Bazley will forego college and sign with a G League team. Not OT because Beilein recruited him briefly, and this could start a trend among 5* one-and-dones who would prefer to focus full-time on basketball.

Also, couldn't have happened to a better coach.

SI story of Duncan Robinson's transfer from Williams to Michigan. This story has been told many times, but I think this is the best & most in-depth one I have read.

Flying down tomorrow and wondering if anyone was interested in having a meetup (perhaps Sun night?) in San Antonio for all the folks going down there.

Would need some help from a local in figuring out a place but would be nice to get a crowd together.
