Let The Overblown Expectations Commence
The men's basketball season was laid to rest last Thursday.
The King is Dead. Long Live the King.
Less than a week post-mortem, its time to look ahead to what awaits us next year. It's my intent to do a much more indepth look into Michigan's basketball future, but I'll give you an early preview.
2005-6 Season Stats: 22-11; 8-8 Big Ten (Tied for 6th); Runner-up National Invitation Tournament
Who's Gone (of importance): Horton, Hunter, Brown. Four other scrubs: Grooms, Ba, Sanchez and Harrell are also gone.
Who's Left: Harris (G), Petway (F), Abram (F/G), Sims (C), Smith (G), Coleman (F/G), Shepard (G), and red-shirt frosh Kendric Price.
Who's Coming: DeShawn Sims (Detroit Pershing), K'Len Morris (Grand Blanc) and Anthony Wright (Oak Hill, VA) are committed.
Who We're Praying is Coming: Patrick Beverly (Chicago, IL)
If the Season Started Tomorrow: (C) Sims; (F) Petway; Abram (F); Harris (G); Smith (PG)
More soon. Work must be done.
Great write up on Michigan's final over at RBUAS. Johnny's venture inside the box scores makes you think a lot harder about your positions on Amaker and the NIT.
