    Hmmm, Gilchrist injures his knee, maybe Calipari and the others start worrying so they look towards other big fish, but we step up our efforts rather than scale back… and who knows? A hobbled Gilchrist could still probably beat our bench 1 vs. 5 in a pickup game. (OK, maybe not)

    Are we actually in the running for Gilchrist, or are we at the bottom of his list. Call me a pessimist, but I really do not see him coming to Ann Arbor.

  • Villanova and Kentucky are thought to be in the drivers seat for Gilchrist. But we are still recruiting him and he has visited campus.

    I was @ CB game pretty sure all 33 were in the second half. Looked horrible and absolutely no effort the first half. Surprised it was the same player. I’ve seen him about 6 times over the last few years and for the first time showed a nice head fake then step to the side hit the three.

    Not sure if he will end up the best player in the state 2011 class but he is by far the best right now. He actually looks a little taller than last year but I’m probably wrong about that.

    Looks like Calipari is gonna get him, then. I’m sure there is a nice paycheck in it for Gilchrist, too.

    i remember reading things he has family ties to both calipari and villanova which is why they are leading for him……and yes of course he will be getting paid upon arrival at kentucky

    Now about Trey Z, I find Mike Rothstein’s answer to Drew’s question a little troubling…
    —–
    Q: Where do you put the chances of Zeigler committing at?

    A: With each passing week – and more and more interest from blueblood schools like Duke, less and less. But Trey said all along he was going to wait a while before committing.


    (The chat is on MLive)

  • I would take that with a grain of salt. I think Zeigler’s situation is pretty much status quo. Yes, Duke is involved but it’s going to go down to the end regardless. Not sure that Rothstein is very well connected to the recruitment, but who knows.

    The backs of these new Sparty jerseys are horrific… similar to the Duke ones.
