Derryck Thornton and Tyus Battle were two of the top performers at the Reebok Breakout Classic last week and Michigan head coach John Beilein was in attendance playing close attention to the guard duo. Watch both players in action in the embedded media players below (via @CourtsideFilms).

    They both have more than the normal number of gears.

  • Wayman Britt

    Not many adjectives left to describe these two great players. Whoever gets them will be instant contenders.

  • Thornton was offered by Louisville tonight.

      He’s expressed a lot of interest in Michigan though hasn’t he? I mean, he’s perfect for our system and Beilein has been churning out NBA guards as well as any coach in the country.

  • Battle is remarkably able to keep his hands and upper body quiet and smooth while his legs are going all over the place. I would have liked to have had that kind of raw athletic ability for just an hour …. see what it’s like.
