Duke Vitale's former gig comes to Coleman to attempt to extend our losing streak to 3 games. Detroit has won 2 in a row after losing 3... a win over a rebuilding St John's squad (a team devoid of talent) and Western Michigan. They did play Notre Dame close in South Bend losing 59-53 so this will probably be a tough one for us.
First, a writeup from the Detroit site. Next, the stats that YOU GOTTA HAVE!
Simon Chase and Ray McCallum lead the team with 16.8 and 14.7 PPG. Jason Calliste is probably their best 3 point shooter (35.4%)... overall they're not very good from beyond the arc. Eli Holman played the last game and scored 21 off the bench.... chances are we'll see some of him tomorrow.
Juwan Howard Jr is a member of this squad (RS from Western Michigan)... I'm getting old as I remember watching his dad play as part of the Fab 5.
- 75.9 PPG
- 46.7% FG
- 29.4% 3pt FG
- 6.6 steals
- 5.5 blocks
Prediction- unless Ray Jackson, Jalen Rose, Chris Webber, and Jimmy King also have kids on this team that play (and are 2/3rd as good as their dads) I don't see Detroit winning at Coleman. I figure a lot of shooting drills were drilled through their heads in practice... we'll see improvement (temporary). Bama by 11.
Game time is 6PM EST on ESPNU.
