Had my first chance to see M this year

M made a big run over the first half to push the lead out to double digits over Providence. M defense is of course legit. They’re giving up little penetration and doing a great job of contesting shots at the same time. One thing I’d note…there are a couple of weak(er) links on that roster […]

Today in College Basketball/DOJ/FBI Madness

Per Jeff Borzello Brian Bowen Sr. testified today that he… • Received $1,300 from then-Louisville assistant Kenny Johnson • Received $8,000 from then-La Lumiere coach Shane Heirman • Received $5,000 from Mean Streets director Tai Streets • Received $1,500 from then-Mean Streets coach Tim Anderson • Was asked if Oregon assistant Tony Stubblefield gave him […]

For anyone thinking MSU might have gotten in the muck re: Bowen

Per Adam Zagoria Interesting quote from Steve Haney, attorney for Christian Dawkins: ‘Michigan State was one of the only schools that was NOT GOING to pay Brian Bowen to go there’ Haney listed MSU, Arizona, Oregon, Texas and Creighton as his final 5 before he picked Louisville in June 2017. Now I’ll tell you that […]

Freshmen

I’m not one to take a ton from early indicators but…the annual individual photos of the players in their uniforms are starting to trickle out. So one thing you can see is physical development from their final year in HS. It won’t ever be a huge factor for Loyer but he does look as if […]

Michigan loses again in Spain

This time to Jovenut, a team playing in the highest rung of the Spanish professional league, 85-79. Good experience for them. I expect M to be the consensus pick for #2 in the conference behind Michigan State. Tough to draw many conclusions from what they did over there. They faced some good competition without Beilein. Didn’t […]

News and Notes from 08.23.18

01. Michigan continues to struggle in its Euro tour…loses to Serb team Mega Bemax 81-73. For reference, that same Mega Bemax team was beaten by Kentucky about 2 weeks ago by 36. Interestingly, Brandon Johns apparently played sparingly and David DeJulius not at all. This is all semi-interesting fodder for discussion right now but I […]

Hearing That MSU in Really Good Shape With Drew Timme

Spoke to a guy in the Metroplex yesterday, says Izzo has gone full blast after Timme and MSU in great shape right now with him. Just on the surface, Gonzaga, MSU and Purdue make a lot of sense for him. All have traditions of utilization of big men (programs and the current coaches). All have […]

Should the NCAA/Big Ten expand to Canada?

Carleton University has won 13 of the last 16 Canadian collegiate championships. They haven’t lost a game since 2015-16. It’s a dynasty that, in its own world, makes Wooden-era UCLA look like Pikers. Well, you might say, big deal…it’s Canada. The level of college basketball up there certainly would leave something to be desired. Overall, […]

Mike Davis with an interesting staff at UD

Tracy Dildy, former head coach at Chicago State and I believe worked for Davis as an assistant at UAB (also assistant at places like DePaul, Auburn and Ole Miss). Chicago guy. Rod Strickland – Longtime NBA player. Was in an administrative role under Cal at Memphis and worked at USF as an assistant for 3 […]
