Quick Roundup: Wolverines in the NBA

Quick Roundup: Wolverines in the NBA

Submitted by HailChicago on November 4th, 2015 at 1:21 PM
A week into the season, here's a roundup on how Belein's boys have fared.
 
Of note: GRIII, Nik, and THJ have all changed unis this year, but only Nik has taken advantage so far. He's getting more minutes with Philly already; let's hope he can continue to earn more. Unfortunately, THJ is fighting against a logjam of wings/guards, as he is yet to be activated (extra surprising considering ATL gave up a first round pick for him).
 
As noted in previous threads, TB3 is coming off the bench, but great to see that he has improved game over game, scoring 0, 13, and 15 points in the first three games. Small sample size, but important that he's accepted/adjusted to his bench role (despite being tabbed my many to start after Exum went down).
 
Nik still probably has the bet shot at making the best mark in the league -- if he keeps shooting like has and cotinues to improve his D, he has the best shot to stick around.
  • GRIII: Has not played
  • Mitch: 1 GP, 4 min of play
  • Nik: 2 GP, 1 GS, 13.5 PPG, 43.8% 2P%, 41.7% 3P%
  • TB3: 3 GP, 0 GS, 8.3 PPG, .47.8% 2P%, 33.3% 3P%, 3.3 APG
  • THJ: Has not played

This was RT'd on Ace's twitter but I didn't see an MGoPost about this so thought I'd share.  A classic example of the sly, self-deprecating humor that makes Spike the most eligible bachelor on campus and another example of the likeable bunch of guys we are priveleged to watch represent U-M

Six Big Ten teams in the first basketball AP Top 25 Poll of the season... 

#3: Maryland

#13: Staee

#15: Indiana

#17: Wisconsin

#23: Purdue

#25: Michigan

I guess this sorta confirms our belief that the Big Ten is a huge toss-up after Maryland.  Should be interesting to see the season unfold, but I'm psyched for this to kick off. Go Blue!

You have to register an account with PSU athletics, you don't get to see specific seat numbers before you purchase, BUT I was able to pull multiple tickets in the top three price ranges without an issue.
