Glenn Robinson III has shot up recruiting charts over the last 12 months and this video help explains some of his rapid improvement. The video is impressive and the cited numbers might be even more eye opening. The numbers show significant improvement in almost every category but the most impressive appears to be an eight inch (30″ to 38″) vertical leap improvement in one year.

The first 30 minutes were eerily similar to Michigan’s ugly exhibition game against Wayne State. Michigan’s offense had little movement, shots weren’t falling inside or out and frustrating turnovers seemed to stop any momentum before it started. The light finally went on over the final quarter of play as the Wolverines began to resemble the team that most expected to see this season. Suddenly the offense was flowing, shots were falling and Michigan closed the game with an emphatic 21-1 run. The end result was a respectable 59-33 win.
It wasn’t pretty, but Michigan got the ‘W’ in a 59-33 victory over Ferris State. Here is video along with notes and quotes of what John Beilein had to say after the game:

Michigan hosts its second GLIAC opponent in seven days but this one counts in the record books. Ferris State took Indiana to overtime at Assembly Hall last season and finished first in the GLAIC North and advanced to the Division II Sweet 16. However, this year’s Bulldog squad is almost certainly a cut below last year’s with significant departures across the board.
Ferris was already blown out, 85-58, at the Breslin Center and lost at Division III Calvin College in exhibition games this season. The Bulldogs lost four starters from a year ago and return only one player that averaged more than six points per game . It’s safe to say that this year is a rebuilding year in Big Rapids.
