Nice article about incoming basketball recruit who seems to be a great fit for our offense. I just picked out a few quotes I found interesting.
"I definitely model my game after Gordon Hayward," he said. "I feel like me and him are similar players in terms of being able to attack, shoot and make plays." Both are 6-foot-8 skilled forwards and Brazdeikis hopes to be a mirror image of him, literally, as the 19-year-old Lithuanian-born Canadian shoots left-handed.
"A natural righty, Brazdeikis has a southpaw stroke, although he showed comfort using his right hand with some punishing one-handed dunks.”
“I feel like (Michigan) coach (John) Beilein deserves a national championship, being a runner-up twice, as well as the Michigan program and Michigan fans. They definitely deserve a ring," he said.”
”Brazdeikis, who goes by "Iggy," committed to Michigan in September, and he said Beilein and the Michigan coaching staff were his biggest factor. "Coach Beilein's just such a trustworthy guy," Brazdeikis said.“
For those of you who don't know, the Nike Hoops Summit is essentially a US vs. World All-Star game. Here is a link to see who is playing this year.
