Open Scrimmage

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.

August 28th and watching MU basketball. Gotta love it.

Good to see Dan Fitzgerald already in mid-season form...committing an unnecessary foul (most likely his third in five minutes of playing time).

Sorry...couldn't resist.
