Labor Day Weekend Bullets

DeShawn Sims after his first game in Greece
  • 2012 Flint Powers guard JaVontae Hawkins made the trip to Ann Arbor this weekend to watch Michigan beat UConn.
  • MaxPreps posted video of The Family from this AAU/EYBL season that mostly features Carlton Brundidge. A decent chunk is also versus Trey Burke’s All Ohio Red squad as well.
  • DeShawn Sims had 14 points, 7 rebounds, five assists, and three steals in his first game in Greece per his twitter account. The game appears to have a been a friendly but I posted a video of Sims being interviewed (with a translator) after the first match.
  • 2011 big man Pat Ackerman verbally committed to Penn State over the weekend. Ackerman was thought to be on the verge of a Michigan offer if he visited Michigan.
  • Matt Vogrich is enrolled in the Ross School of Business and is the second player on Michigan’s roster (Novak is the other) to be enrolling in the business school.
  • Basketball scheduling for the new Big Ten will likely be decided in May, naturally (it would put Minnesota in the easier division) Tubby Smith wants to mimic the SEC scheduling. I still think it would be a terrible decision to revert to a 16 game schedule.
  • Prep Hoops Assist put together a consensus recruiting rankings list for the class of 2011. Brundidge checks in at #70, Dom Pointer at #80, and Amir Williams at #40.
  • ESPN (which is included in the above rankings) also put out their 2011 rankings: Brundidge #52, Pointer #53, Williams #54, Burke #92. ESPN also has fancy new recruit profile pages.
  • MSU guard Korie Lucious pleaded guilty to reckless driving despite being originally charged with OWI after registering a BAC of .09 (and being under 21).
  • Bacari Alexander still needs 147 followers before October 15th if he’s going to keep his twitter.
  • Indiana received a verbal commitment from a freshman, meaning he can’t sign a letter of intent for over 3 years..
