Bullets from last night's Open Scrimmage:
- Around 500-600 showed up. The lower bleachers were rolled up, which was a good move, it made the crowd look much larger.
- First 45 minutes were drills. The music was pumping the entire time, and I can't get "Party Like a Rock Star" out of my head.
- MU played a series of scrimmages, Blue vs. Gold, DJ vs. Acker. Gold wins!
- Acker looks great. Quick, looks to pass, nice shot. Great addition.
- DJ was DJ. Looked sharp, leads the team.
- Mbakwe has a lot of talent. He'll contribute quickly defensively and on the boards.
- Hazel .. gosh. I don't remember him being in the middle of anything last night.
- Mr. Basketball Christopherson .. shot well in drills, our #2 3-point guy behind Fitz. Didn't do much in the scrimmage.
- Matthews played very well, as expected. Led all scorers with 16. McNeal was McNeal.
- Ooze .. not a lot of offensive progression from last year.
- Trend looks a shade heavier, decent defender with those long arms.
- Must-get recruit Frank Ben-Eze was in town for this one.
