Moneyball Pro-Am is at Aim High not The Summit (they're right next to each other).......that's old for ya.


Trevor Manuel, Olivet played for the Gold/yellow team with Foster Loyer this last week.   The once famous Graham Couch for the LSJ wrote up this nice article on him.  https://www.lansingstatejournal.com/story/sports/columnists/graham-couch/2018/07/08/trevor-manuel-oregon-loyola-olivet-couch-column/762075002/ 

Spoiler:   He's still planning on playing for the Comets.



Good luck to all MIAA players playing the '3' this Winter.

Moneyball Pro-Am summer league kicks off Thursday in Lansing at the Summit  (I96 and Lansing Rd)

A Few MIAA guys playing

Tracy Edmond  -Olivet?-    --Team Definition   (curiously listed as LCC '16 on roster)
Caleb Hoekstra -Hope-     --Team Glory
Preston Laketa -Alma-      --Team Glory
Zach Winston -Albion-      --Team Quicksilver   (playing with older brother Cassius Winston)
Michael Fomby -Olivet-     --Team Quicksilver
Bryan Dutton -Olivet '10-  --Team Quicksilver
Harrison Gilstrap -Olivet-   --Team Showtime 
Forest Bouyer -Calvin-      --Team Vintage

Each of the six teams has 2 MSU Spartans on it.  MIAA guys usually don't get much run in this but its fun to watch the MSU guys play in a small setting.  No Miles Bridges this year so probably less of a madhouse, but I suppose Loyer and Bingham might bring some folks out.  Some of the lesser known guys can really play.


Free basketball, Tuesday/Thursday nights 6,7 and 8pm



We had a Kzoo squad at Aim High (back at the old Walter French) for two summers. Great playing against current and former Spartans as well as other DIs from the area.  I enjoyed watching Brian Ellison kick Jon Garavaglia's ass up and down the court one game.
There's only two things I hate in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures and the Dutch.

I won't lie I haven't been on here in some time so forgive me if this was already brought up.  Bryan Powell will be joining the Calvin coaching staff as an assistant coach.

Kalamazoo mens basketball twitter posted the following as their recruiting class.  (heights are from quick searches)

Joey  Robb  SF  Plymouth     
Tre Humes  6-5  SF  Kzoo Valley CC, Portage Northern
Marty Ward  6-3 G  East Grand Rapids
Art Caldwell  6-8 C  Ann Arbor Huron
A. J.  Abdelnour  5-10 PG   Detroit Catholic Central
Cooper Smith 6-4 SG  Kzoo Hackett

Kzoo graduated 3, return 14 (plus 1 from injury I think), 11 of those last years Freshmen.  Not much idea where these guys will fit in.  I imagine the Hornets will lose one or two to attrition.

Humes could be an impact guy.


Kzoo also has its schedule posted:

Remembering mental notes from spring, I'd expect Anderson and Chicago to be pretty good D3 tests.  Spring Arbor will be good as well.

Possibly unnecessary commentary at a later time.

Busy start to the season for Hope - 5 games in 8 days!
