Stuart Douglass Videos

Dylan Burkhardt

A couple quick Stuart Douglass videos here. Stu is #15 on Carmel (white/blue) and you can see him hitting a couple (deep) threes and dishing out a nice assist. Stu is going to play next year and I am almost positive of that. He brings something that this team lacks, consistent three point shooting. I also don’t think of him as a Reed-Baker-Deluxe type of player either. He is a legit 6-3+ and knows how to play the game. Since Beilein’s camp this summer I had heard good things about Stu and was not suprised at all when we offered him. Yes he may be a three star, and yes he may only average 14ppg, but the kid will come in and hit the ground running. I am not really worried about whether his star ranking goes up but I do hope he has success and can win the Indiana state title. I think it shows something about a kid when his team is winning games. Look at Manny last year when he guided his Redford Huskies all the way to the state finals. Also one note on the team, Lacy has the latest on yesterday’s hero Dave Merritt here, it didn’t sound good yesterday but we will see.

    Great to have a U of M basketball blog. Now I can stop talking to myself at Mgoblog about a sport no one seems to care about.

  • We are glad to have you, there are still a few of us who care. :-)

    Me too. I think in a year or two, a whole lot more people will care…

    Is this your blog?

    What are your thoughts on Carmel’s loss the other day. It was in a tough gym from what I can tell.

    This right after they demolished the number 4 ranked team in the state. It was unexpected. I was really hoping for Douglass to lead his team to an undefeated championship and then move up a star rating.

  • I added some thought to the post. Yes, it’s my blog.

    I hope you’re right about Douglass. At least he’ll have first semester next year to prove himself before LLP becomes eligible.

    He does seem to have a beautiful shot with a quick release. Also acceptable size for a 2. These facts distiguish him from the other “sharp shooters” we have brought in in the past (Morris, Baker, Groneger).

    Hopefully he can guard somebody so we can get him on the floor.
