Saint John, Indiana — Led by 29 points from junior forward Glenn Robinson III, Lake Central defeated Hammond Morton 71-48 Tuesday night. The 6-foot-5 Michigan commitment was hot all night, scoring 14 points in the first quarter to help Lake Central jump out to an early 20-14 lead, from which they never looked back. After the game I caught up with Robinson for a brief interview. Some of the topics addressed include his high school season, Michigan’s season, and much more. We’ll also have a full scouting report and video highlights posted shortly.

Opposition Q&A: Bucky’s Fifth Quarter

220110212214313002_t607[1]

We like to do question and answer sessions for big games, so it was convenient when Phil from Bucky’s Fifth Quarter requested we do a feature for Wednesday’s showdown at Crisler Arena. They run a great site that covers all things Wisconsin and it is definitely worth a read from time to time. To start with, you can find my answers to his questions over there. Now, here’s your Badger talk.

Jordan Taylor is by all accounts phenomenal…. What are his two greatest strengths and what would you say are one or two weaknesses?

One of Taylor’s greatest strengths is his physical strength. Everyone can see he’s built like a running back. That ability to absorb contact is part of the reason Taylor can finish so well at the hoop. His strength also helps him protect the ball against pesky defenders, keeping his turnovers to a minimum. Another advantage for Taylor is his attitude. He stays in control of the game because of his confidence in his own abilities and those of his team. Taylor keeps his emotions in check but at the same time is almost always smiling. He is a great leader who has earned the respect of his team and makes the other four guys on the floor better.

By Taylor’s own admission, he waited too long against Purdue to hunt his own shot, which is odd considering he had just carried the Badgers against Ohio State. Taylor is not the quickest point guard either. We recently saw the relentless Lewis Jackson bother Taylor with his tight defense and quicker feet.
