Marcus Landry on the other hand, is really progressing. I'm excited about watching him light up the Big Ten next year. He's really improving his game away from the basket, the shot look ten times better than it used to, and his post offense is looking great in the Big Ten Tournament too. I'm worried about what the loss of Butch, Steimsma, and Flowers will mean to the team, but at the same time I'm excited about the future.
Now, if we can just lock up Jamil Wilson and Jeronne Maymon. Please, please, please!!
EDIT: Johnnie Lacy too, if you don't mind Bo. Don't give these guys on a silver platter to Crean.
My alma-mater (Tosa East, D1 state champs baby) was playing in the state tournament so I walked over to the Kohl Center to watch some games... Mamon looked really impressive to me... he can get to the rim and handles the ball well for his size... great athleticism too. He's a Madison kid, I wonder if he'll want to stay home for college.
