2009-2010 Season

Featured Reading: Beilein Winning Over Skeptics

3, Manny Harris and 34, DeShawn Sims sitting on the bench, during Michigan's 73-45 victory over Iowa, in the first round of the 2009 Big Ten Tournament held in Indianapolis on March 12.I don’t usually devote a post to just one article, but this one is worth it. Jeff Goodman put together a wonderful piece on John Beilein, Manny Harris, DeShawn Sims, and dealing with the numerous skeptics from Detroit. Here’s the lede:

DeShawn Sims had just finished up his freshman season at Michigan when he heard the news that John Beilein had been hired to replace Tommy Amaker. Manny Harris was the Wolverines’ top signee and the word quickly swirled that he would explore other options.

“People were saying Beilein’s system was for white boys,” Sims said.

“I heard he didn’t even like players that dunk,” added the athletic Harris.

The article features quotes from Harris, Sims, The Family’s Speedy Walker, and 2010 commitment Carlton Brundidge. It’s definitely worth a read.
