Novak’s first dunk:

Here are Darius Morris’ dunk attempts. The shot clock dunk is from the first round and his dunk with Vogrich is from the finals.

Three Point Contest Champs: Manny Harris and Carmen Reynolds

Mike Rothstein posted a video of the coaches’ introductions. A little dancing action from Jerry Dunn, Kevin Borseth, and John Beilein.

    great video…glad u got it Dylan…u had a good angle, I was right across the aisle, and man that was sweet!

  • BL11

    WOW…..mad I missed it, thats quite impressive. Jimmy Chitwood can’t do that

  • AG2

    Man, this team is looking GOOD.

  • Jivas

    Wow – awesome stuff! I didn’t know that Novak had those ups and could throw it down like that!

    I also had to re-watch the Vogrich-to-Morris dunk about 8 times to figure out where the ball was coming from. Very creative – great stuff.

  • Dave

    it seemed like morgan was bouncing around a bit ……didnt look like his knee was wrapped or anything that that was interesting …..dmo looked like he had some nice bounce as well

  • Adam

    Talked to Morgan tonight. He said that he was already back at practice and that he WILL play this year.

    So I got my scrimmage video ready to post, then realized its missing the last two minutes and somehow lost enough pixels on the sides to make it not as watchable. Going for another try, hope for better results :-)

    Was this with the new camera? If so, how did you like it?

  • http://www.umhoops.com Dylan

    It was pretty nice. Pissed off at my lack of Adobe Premiere skills that caused me to lose the sides of the video though.

  • Erik

    Dylan,
    With the video software I use, there is an option to import the video at 4:3 aspect ratio or 16:9 (widescreen). You may want to see if you have a similar setting which would return the pixels on the sides.

    Great stuff, Dylan! Thanks for posting these.

    Can you try to get a pregame video up on here? With the dancing / maybe announcements?

    oh thanks so much Dylan! Awesome website first time here love it.

  • WTHef?

    Great job on all the videos, Dylan! Really appreciate you posting them.

  • sven

    LLP seems quicker to me this year.

    I also liked the hesitation dribble drive by Stu at about the 3 minute mark even though he didn’t quite finish it.

  • ryan

    I found the brotherhood shirts from selection sunday. I know people were talking about trying to find them at that time, don’t know if you ever did.

    But what are your alls overall take on Michigan Madness as an event? was it as good as you expect? better?
    putting into perspective how little they have practiced, how good did the team look?

  • Colby

    Thanks for all the info Dylan, by any chance did anyone notice any recruits there?

  • http://www.umhoops.com Dylan

    I think I saw Carlton Brundidge was there and I saw what looked like the Cass Tech team.

    The big recruiting weekend for Michigan is next week when Trey Zeigler and Evan Smotrycz will take their officials.

  • Tyler

    Yea I sat right in front of the Cass Tech team. Good to see them there.

  • JayRich

    SVEN: I thought LLP looked great…I don’t know if it is quickness, but he certainly seems to have confidence, which is even better.

    After watching that scrimmage, I AM PUMPED. Vogrich can stroke it.

    It will still be interesting to see where Cronin fits in. For a 7’0″ kid who supposedly runs like a deer, he sure looked more like a lumberjack to me. I wish he could have displayed his face-up game. Bit still nice to have a seven footer on the team.

  • http://www.umhoops.com Dylan

    Not sure Cronin has even been described as running like a deer…

  • J-Turn14

    I think Bambi moved faster accross the ice than Cronin moves down the court.

  • Kainkitizen

    I attended the event and it was a lot of fun. I definitely see this event turning into something huge next year for the team and program. I think Jordan had a sleeve on but it was mostly covered up by his shorts. He was doing a little bouncing. Every one of them looked great. Remember they had there 2 hour team practice prior to the event.

  • MaizeNBlue2

    Well, Vogrich certainly looked better defensively than I saw in the game I scouted last winter. His stroke looked good. He looked much better in this than he did in the game I saw him play.

    Granted it’s a scrimmage, and the defense wasn’t near as tight as it will be, but maybe playing with more talented guys allows him to just play his game, whereas in high school, he felt he had to carry his team.

    Anyway, I can definitely see him contributing this year in some aspect. I’m juiced for hoops season this year, even though football season’s just at it’s midway point. I can’t remember the last time I said that. Go Blue!

    Thanks for everything, Dylan.

  • GregGoBlue

    Vogrich looks great, for sure. I think DMo will be a nice addition to the lineup. He looks kind of green, but there’s plenty of talent there.

  • Sam

    Just a few quick observations:

    Morris will definitely benefit from some Beilein coaching, especially this three-point shot. Right now he gets only about one full rotation on his three point shot, making it look like a knuckle ball.

    Vogrich has a sweet stroke and pure rotation, which I know Beilein stresses with his Beilein Ball. I don’t think there is a team in the country that could match us man for man on five shooters.

    McLimans was very impressive to me. I was not expecting much from him at all, but he looks very solid. His defense was most impressive, as he took on Peedi man-to-man and forced him into tough shots time and time again. There were at least two times that Sims tried to put a fake on him and McLimans kept his feet on the ground and another in which Sims tried to spin to the baseline but was completely cut off. McLimans also has a sweet stroke, especially for a big man.

    Finally, there was no question as to who the most impressive player was. Zack Novak not only shined in the dunk contest with his ups, but also had a solid scrimmage, nailing two threes, including one from near NBA range. He is noticeably thinner and quicker and will most definitely be an asset on the court.

    Thanks for posting the video Dylan. I was particularly interested to see Cronin and was pleasantly surprised. He isn’t a deer, but he moves pretty well for a young 7-footer. His jump hook looks like a nice go to move as he develops his back to the basket game. His form on the three looked decent also…good follow through. I’d never seen him play before, and after his surgery, I wasn’t sure if he would ever be able to fully recover, but it looks like he has a future with the team, and at some point is going to be a solid contributor. Can’t teach height…and I’m glad to have a 7-foot presence in the paint.

  • JB

    awesome videos dylan. thanks.

  • michmgoblue

    (Info from managers) Novak would practice that dunk like 30 times each practice and would usually get it once if lucky, hard to imagine he would make it in the dunk contest like that.

    Kalamazoo wing forward Devin Oliver committed to Dayton this weekend.

  • Kenny

    best wishes to Oliver. I remember that one of his uncles posted here a couple of times.

  • http://www.umhoops.com Dylan

    Dayton is probably a good fit. They are a legit A10 program.

  • KJay

    Novak’s athleticism is not only surprising but really encouraging given everything else he brings to the table. A lineup of LLP, Manny, Novak, Gibson and Sims with Morris, Douglass, Vogrich, Wright and Cronin backing them up looks like a decent possibility. I like the athleticism, size and shooting ability of that starting lineup. The key guy is really Gibson and whether he’s progressed enough to provide consistency at the 4. (It’s crazy to think he and Wright started last year and Peedi came off the bench during most of the pre-conference season.)

    McLimans, Morgan and Akunne could work their way into the rotation, and along with Person, Puls and Bartelstein will make practices more competitive than ever.

    I would expect the team to play small again this year.
    Morris/LLP
    Stu
    Manny
    Novak
    DeShawn

    Gibson will come off the bench/start when needed against bigger teams, but I would expect this to be the starting lineup for most of the season.
