Nick Baumgardner did a write up on the Lebron James Skills Academy (Link Here), and noted that Burke and Hardaway Jr. were among the 6 standouts at the camp.  Burke was noted as looking 'particularly outstanding', by Joe Kotoch of, who chose Burke as his 'best slasher' and 'best midrange shooter'.

This team will go as far as Trey and THJ take them. If THJ finds his 3 point stroke again, this team is deadly. Cannot wait to watch them play.

McGary and Big Dawg Jr.'s transitions to the collegiate level go well. Tim, Trey, Mitch, GRjr., Stu....this team should be locked and loaded to bring the pain....not to mention Beilein coaching....can't wait. I am not sure if I am more excited for football or basketball....ahh, it's nice to have choices =)

We all expected that last year was just a sophomore slump, and he showed his true self in a few games. But there was always the risk of legitimate regression. Some guys just fall apart and nobody knows why. Seeing this reaffirms our beliefs that it was a random slump and our favorite NBA-blood boy will be back to tops this year.

Trey should be able to dish it out to THJ nearly as well as Morris could this year. If THJ can hit them, and we add in Trey's own scoring ability... watch out! Plus throw a couple of talented enough to be one-and-done if they want freshmen on there...

for the bball team next year than football.  I see 9 or 10 wins in football and a nice bowl game.... possible big 10 championship run.  In basketball, I could see a final four run if they gel.  Obviously I'm pretty excited for football too.

We should (fingers crossed) get a healthy Horford back too. He put on some good weight last year before the injury and could be a big help to the team down low. Next year's team looks awful good on paper...
