Friendly Reminder: Mitch McGary & Brewster Academy Game on ESPN

Submitted by Fhshockey112002 on January 15th, 2012 at 3:47 PM

I know there was a post a few days ago, but a friendly reminder that Mitch McGary's game wil be on ESPN at 4:00 today.  Will be a good test for Mitch as he faces 6'11" Nerlens Noel (#2 in 2013 Class)

Also Nik Stauskas played earlier on ESPNU, but I missed the game, so if anyone has an update please post it.

I expected a little more from a 20 yr old guy playing against 16 and 17 yr olds. 

On that note though if Noel is a legit 6'11 than Mitch is no more than 6'7 tops, he looks completely dwafted by Noel in the post.

So far Mitch isn't even a top 3 player in this game. I can handle the fact that he isn't scoring, but where is this energy & hustle he's supposed to bring?

This literally looks like a NBA game with a lot of one on one, hard to get anything out of this game. The shot clock has some of these kids jacking up shots for no apparent reason and with espn being there it really is a perimeter game.

I expect McGary to be a Tyler Hansborough type player at michigan who everyone will hate because he just attacks and gets the benefit of every whistle possible. I'm sure we all can and will take that.

Very disappointed. Let's face it if you didn't know who he was, afterwatching that half you still wouldn't, he looked like just a guy out there. Really showed nothing.

Judging by the first half, I think McGary stays at least two years and that's not bad news for Michigan IMO. His energy will definitely be an asset and totally infectious. I can not wait until he steps on the Ann Arbor campus!

Thought it was clear I meant that he's the best high school center. He's the number one center in the 2013 class and if he's better than Isaiah Austin (the #1 2012 center), then he's the best center in the country. ESPN has him rated higher.

Come on guys stay a little more positive for a future wolverine.  Hope he doesnt read this with you guys judging off watching him in one game.  Show a little more class.

Hope that Mitch is very upset with his performance. If he happens to read any of this and is a true competitor then he would agree with the assessment of his play today because he in no way even looks like a top 50 recruit.

How the hell did these teams come to exist?? My high school team sent a couple guys to D1 schools and we would have gotten absolutely murdered by these guys.

First time seeing McGary play, and I've been impressed with his athleticism and effort. Noel is a phenomenal shotblocker so there isn't a lot of room for Mitch to finish around the rim, but I think a lot of folk here are putting way too much emphasis on points scored. There isn't a shotblocker like Noel in the Big Ten and there probably won't be going forward.

Brewster runs NO plays and they seem like a bunch of selfish players.  I like Mcgarys hustle and after some John Belien coaching he will be just fine
