Check out Jordan and a couple of other guys form the team running some 5's.  Spoiler alert, he looked pretty good.  His complete game was on display.

I could've swore we had a home/home scheduled with them for this year and next, but I see they aren't listed on the schedule.  Did this series get cancelled?

Michigan did recently add Air Force and Western Michigan to the schedule, which is much better than your SE Louisiana Tech States.

Soccer Superstar Cites UM MBB as example for Spain in World Cup

Now here is a strange tie-in, but it works.

If you didn't hear, yesterday Spain FIRED their coach on the veritable eve of the World Cup.  They are one of the top 4 contenders, filled with tons of talent.  They were embarrassed at the last WC (lost the first game 5-1, didn't make it out of the group), and are looking to not only redeem themselves but possibly win it again.  But now, they are using an interim coach.  Their coach was fired because he had the audacity to take another gig for after the WC ends -- frankly, the best gig on the planet, Real Madrid.

Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman has been sidelined by a foot injury while preparing for a professional career.  He was working out on his own, getting ready for the upcoming  draft, landed wrong, and broke a bone in his foot, which required surgery.

He's got 3 to 4 months before he can return to basketball activities.

Unbelieveably inspiring story about this young man who endured losing his mother at the age of 7, growing up with an alcoholic father, and overcoming homelessness on his way to gaining admission to Michigan's Nursing school and competing for a walk-on spot this coming year.

 

Just read the damn article.

The guy looks ready to be a major contributor from day 1.  He can shoot, he can create his own shots, and he's shown he can drive and dish  Next years team is going to have a lot of depth, and a lot of versatility.  Glad Coach B is coming back, so we can see him work his magic.
