Buffalo is really, really for real

Best MAC team in a long, long time. Maybe back to the Majerus-era Ball State teams? The MAC used to turn out a team every 2-3 years in the 80s and 90s which would make a tournament run to the Sweet Sixteen but this is different. Buffalo should be *expected* to get to that level. […]

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 […]
