Photo from today, practice starts next week.
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.

I'll try to embed, but likely fail.
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.
247 just updated their basketball rankings and one of our current 2019 commits received a bump and one stayed the same:
Jalen Wilson: Stayed at #30 player in the country
Cole Bajema: #60 -> #56 player in the country
Other players of note:
Cole Anthony stayed at #2
Jaden McDaniels moved up a spot to #4
Here's an article breaking down UM basketball's exhibition win over the Madrid Generals during their Spain trip.
Here are my main takeaways that I think some people would find interesting:
The placement of the B1G games will be announced tomorrow on a special BTN Basketball & Beyond at 3pm so we'll probably have the full schedule tomorrow.

11/14 at Villanova (Gavitt Tipoff Games)
11/17 George Washington (HOF Tipoff in Uncasville, CT)

There appears to be no way to watch or listen to the game, but the men's basketball team kicks off its preseason European tour today in Madrid. Mlive's @AndrewKahn is tweeting updates:
At halftime, Michigan is tied at 39. The scorers:
Poole: 10 points
Johns, Davis, and Brooks: 4 each
Teske and Simpson limited due to foul trouble.
