UM Hoops Podcast 1.3: ESPN’s Myron Medcalf and Stu Douglass

It took us a while to get going after the break, but Dave Merritt and I finally got in the studio to record a new podcast. We had a good time and got to talk Michigan’s loss to Ohio State on Sunday as well as look ahead to the Wolverines’ match-up with Minnesota at The Barn. Here’s a quick rundown:

  • We kick off by talking with ESPN.com national college basketball writer Myron Medcalf. Medcalf, who worked for the Minneapolis Star Tribune for four years prior to hooking up with ESPN in 2011, previews Michigan’s game against the Golden Gophers this Thursday.
  • Next, former Michigan captain Stu Douglass joins us all the way from Pamplona, Spain. Stu gives us some insight into what he’s seen from the Wolverines so far this season, including what he likes about Nik Stauskas, a fellow lang-range sharpshooter. We also chat about Stu’s experience in Spain and what it’s like playing pro ball. Unfortunately, Stu was cut off due to international calling trickery.
  • Dave and I finish things off by further discussing the Ohio State game as well as the progress of the freshmen. Dave sheds light on what he saw from Michigan’s offense against the Buckeyes and possible solutions to playing a defender as great as Aaron Craft.

The music comes from the legendary Pete Rock. In sequential order: Grown Man Sport, Life to Live and Watch Me, which is actually a 9th Wonder and Pete Rock collaboration.
