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.

Is like a Hansbrough/Novak grit-type of player (like he gets rebounds, does the dirty work, etc.) with THJ, Burke, GRIII and Stauskas, we should be OK. We will still have a lot of scorers on the team. He will find his role and make us better.

Well the only good thing about this is it looks clear there is no way Mitch is even close to being ready for the NBA. These kids are all at least two years younger than him and he can't do anything offensively.

Look at him playing on his AAU team and in the summer camps (where he vaulted in his rankings)...he will be fine. Granted I was dissapointed...but it's not the end of the world that he was outplayed by an elite prospect in 1 game. Also, Brewster didn't really make an effort to run plays and feed him the ball - a lot of 'me' basketball.

Wow, very impressed with McGary's athleticism, he moves much better than any of the Bigs currently on M's roster. You can't teach that type of athletic ability and he will get even bigger and stronger in college. McGary should transition very nicely from the playground nature of his HS team, to the structured concept of his college team, where excellent coaches are more than willing to take advantage of his undeniable talents. And he's a hustler too! M fans are in for a treat and will absolutely love this kid.

Stauskas is a little bit limited athletically IMO, and while he has a beautiful shot, his release is a bit slow, as he cocks the ball. I think ultimately Stauskas will be very good at M, but it is going to take some time for his body to mature, and for him to get used to the upgrade in competition that the BIG will provide. IMHO Stauskas is more athletic than Vogrich but not on the same level as Stu and Zack, hopefully a college S&C program can help in this regard. It has done wonders for Morgan, Stu, Zack, Tim Hardaway, Horford, and Mclimans, Smot, and Vogrich.
