    Monte Morris v. Derrick Walton Jr.

    Monte clearly stacks up very well against Walton so far. I hope Monte gets a lot of playing time. He may be a HUGE factor in this game.

    Monte Morris 2 26.0 10.0 5.5 3.5 2.0 0.0 1.5 .455 1.000 .667
    Derrick Walton 2 25.5 9.0 2.0 2.5 1.5 0.0 2.0 .429 1.000 .200

    Re: Monte Morris v. Derrick Walton Jr.

    It will be interesting if they do match up on Sunday. They were teammates in AAU, and Walton finished second to Monte in last year's Michigan Mr. Basketball.

    I'm interested to see how CFH does the rotation. It could be he will try to take advantage of having senior Kane against freshman Walton.

    Re: Monte Morris v. Derrick Walton Jr.

    Monte will be the first one off the bench unless one of our 'bigs' get hurt (hopefully Ejim can play some spot minutes in that case..) You have to know Monte thinks he's is better than Derrick and personally.. I would take Monte. I'm excited to see what he does Sunday.

    Also.. has anyone else noticed how Monte can make some of these guys look plain dumb with some of these steals? He averaged a crazy amount of steals in HS if I remember right. Looks like those numbers weren't a fluke he has some crafty hands

    Sweet article! Not sure about this though, hah.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    I'd be curious to know how many schools make scholarship offers with 24 hour ultimatums. That seems sketchy to me and I would do the same as Monte did: feel uncomfortable and not accept it.

    Yeah, a 24 hour ultimatum to a 15 year old kid. Classy.

    Wonder why MM wasn't offered by UM or MSU?

    My understanding is that after Walton committed, they already had one PG for the class, so they wanted to pursue other recruits for '13. Giving him a choice was probably better than revoking the offer outright. Recruiting is a messy process, and is rarely fair.

    Consider it a blessing. Morris will hopefully be the better of the two. If Man Man had committed to Michigan, we probably wouldn't have gotten Walton or another point guard of the caliber that we have now. This makes me happy. Beilein will be angry when Morris lights it up and makes Michigan look stupid on Sunday.

    I bet Kane is on Lavert or Stauskas. My guess is maybe Thomas is on Walton.

    Thomas - Stauskas
    Kane - Lavert
    Hogue - Robinson III
    Niang - Horton

    Here's my guess:

    Kane - Walton
    Thomas - Stauskas
    Hogue - Lavert
    Ejim - Robinson
    Niang - Horton

    Great story. I've been so impressed with Monte thus far; he's gonna be a great 4-year Cyclone
