    Timmy so good. Keep it up!

  • Kenny

    well deserved. His game has improved tremendously ever since the road game against Penn State.

  • Mattski

    How many of those has Appling garnered? Somebody remind me.

  • Alex

    Great job THJr.

  • Jeff

    At this point, Hardaway has to be at least honorable mention all big-ten, maybe third team.

    I hope he doesn’t start appearing in Mock Drafts but I have a feeling he will.

    Even so, he doesn’t seem like a “1 and Done” type player. I hope he at least stays until his Junior year, as I really want to see him play with GR III.

      relax, theres no way tim hardway is going to be drafted till his junior year and Id be shocked if he got drafted then. He still has so much to improve on. Hes off and on at times and hes got pretty weak handles.

  • tin mad dog

    With as sweet as his shot has been looking lately, I’m starting to have Glen Rice flashbacks.

  • BigTex

    Who was the B-Ball 2011 recruit in this weekend?

  • billiam

    Dude’s outplaying the #1 recruit in the nation. That says something.

  • Sam

    More national recognition for him: http://beyondthearc.nbcsports.com/2011/02/28/michigans-hardaway-jr-performing-like-sullinger-barnes/

    And yeah, it’s situations like these that sometimes make me wish the media just didn’t exist so no one would want to leave early for us, but it is what it is. I also get really angry when I feel we deserve some attention and don’t get any.
