Local report on tonight's game.
I get that we played well against Ohio State, but I don't really see how that correlates to us playing a competitive game against msu. They are #5 and OSU doesn't even have votes. Am I missing something here, or is this just kool-aid?
Michigan State's Deyonta Davis, a McDonald’s All-American, is a 6-10 freshman with a 7-2 wingspan who already has 32 blocked shots. Illinois’ leading shot-blocker, Malcolm Hill, has 12. When was the last time we had an intimidating defensive presence in the middle???????
If he only had better eye-hand coordination I think he could actually stick in the league. It's tough to have a 6-11 player that can't rebound/catch on the floor. But, he does add enough apart from those facts to play basketball for a while longer. I guess we'll see how critical he was to the last two East Lansing wins tonight.
Gee, Nanna is starting in the NBDL, getting tick (32 mpg), and averaging nearly 10 (9.8 ppg) and 7, plus 1.5 blocks per game, . Thats pretty solid
I always believed that if Nnanna could learn to do anything offensively in the post and became a better rebounder, he could be a very serviceable backup center in the NBA.
Agreed and to be honest, it's more about the rebounds. If he could average, in a backup role, 6-7 boards per game, he'd see some time. Reggie Evans has no offensive game and to be honest, neither does DeAndre Jordan. Jordan is obviously in another world when it comes to defense, but Evans has built a career on rebounding.
Speaking of Egwu, I saw him live in action in an NBDL game recently and he looked visibly stronger than in college.
