Video: Michigan Basketball Open Practice 2015-16

Zach Shaw

For those of you that weren’t able to attend Michigan’s annual open practice this afternoon in Ann Arbor, UM Hoops was on hand with cameras rolling. Here’s a look inside practice which featured a scrimmage between the blue team (the first unit) featuring Caris LeVert, Derrick Walton, DJ Wilson, Duncan Robinson, Aubrey Dawkins, Mark Donnal and Zak Irvin (limited due to injury) against the maize unit (the winning team) which was led by Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman, Kameron Chatman, Ricky Doyle and Moritz Wagner.

Watch the footage in the embedded media player below and feel free to jump in the discussion below.

  • We’ll have more practice thoughts (and we’re just talking about practice…), but DJ Wilson looks fantastic. Shot the ball extremely well, moved it on the perimeter, rebounded well. Looks like a real weapon at that four spot.

    Nothing to be surprised about with LeVert, he looks like himself. Dawkins tweaked his ankle and then came back to action for a bit but didn’t shoot it all that well after that.

    Man, I’m just excited for an almost real game on Friday.

    What did you guys think?

          Oh I see what you did there…

    We have bigs who can shoot. Small sample, but many guys look much improved. I’m getting excited.

    • It’s just practice, but DJ looked really comfortable. Let’s just hope we have bigs that can rebound :-)

    Thanks for getting this video! Love the way DJ and Kam were knocking down shots, I think that bodes well for the team…

    Wow. Lot of options. Didn’t know DJ Wilson had that range

    I think this video shows DJ belongs in the rotation. I think the three headed 5 spot maybe coming.
