Calvin roster is up:

http://calvinknights.com/sports/mbkb/2018-19/roster

Anyone know anything about Brandon Harrison from Hartland?  I don't recall him being mentioned before in the lists of recruits and yet he made the varsity as a freshman.  I was also wondering about the Wolterink from Chicago on the JV team.  Isn't he the same person that was on the JV team the year before last?  Was he injured or out of school, or this a brother?

Here's an video of his AAU highlights. Some of it reminded me of Michael Wilks on a bigger frame. At 6-6 he appears to be more of a perimeter player than someone who'll bang inside. Standard highlight video caveats apply.

I'm impressed!  Although GK has a valid point about videos, and I've been fooled in the past, I notice the release, the touch, and especially the ability to score from the inside as well as from outside.  On the inside he demonstrated excellent control while releasing with either hand, and that ability to use either hand is a great help.  Hard to tell about his defense from the video, other than the ability to block shots if he's in the right position.  He seems to be a decent rebounder.  Did he win any state honors?

Comet Chaos is tonight at Cutler! This is the Olivet version of MSUís midnight madness. It ends with a scrimmage, so it should be a good chance to see a certain former D1 recruit on the court.

I find it interesting that so far the teams that have been listed have such a wide variety of freshmen on the varsity.  By my count, Alma has 8, Trine 7, Kalamazoo 5, and Calvin 2.  That fact may or may not be significant.  It may tell more about who has strong classes with more experience and who is doing more rebuilding.  In Calvin's case, it may be more due to the previously mentioned fact that they have so many sophomore guards who might have an impact that only the top forwards are on the team so far.

In Trine's case I think it's more a numbers thing.  There really aren't enough "recruited" kids to fill out a JV roster at Trine so I'm sure the coaches have to scramble to get kids that came to Trine with no intention to play basketball, to see if they want to play on JV.

I went to Trine's blue/white "scimmage" on Saturday.  It was more practice on the half court than a scimmage, although they did play one half of full court  basketball with referees.  The refs also held a "class" with the staff and players on what they are going to be focusing on this year, a lot of it had to do with illegal screens.  Not much to gleen from the newcomers.  Of the returners I though that Jared Dishop looked most improved.  He hasn't played much in his 3 years at Trine but I think he will see the court a bit more this year.  We need him because of his size.  From the posted roster it appears a few of the freshman guys who committed to Trine did not enroll and a couple new names appeared that weren't on the posted list.  Fairly typical for D3.

Albion's roster is up, looks like it's a combined JV/Varsity roster perhaps.

Adrian:
Albion: http://www.gobrits.com/sports/mbkb/2018-19/roster
Alma: http://almascots.com/sports/mbkb/2018-19/roster
Calvin: http://calvinknights.com/sports/mbkb/2018-19/roster

Kalamazoo: https://hornets.kzoo.edu/sports/mbkb/2018-19/roster
Olivet:
Trine:  https://www.trinethunder.com/sports/mbkb/2018-19/roster

Looks like a great deal of experience with 7 seniors!  That must be the record so far this year, possibly by quite a large margin.

Hope's roster is up with 20 guys listed - suspect some of them will be JV, since the JV roster that is posted is from last year??


That seems to be fixed now.

Pretty unusual for Hope to keep 6 Soph's on the JV squad.  There might be an opportunity later for one of the bigger JV kids to find a spot on Varsity?  Pretty much the same squad as last year without Dante.  His minutes will be primarily picked up by Lewis I would guess then spread out among the other guards.

Yikes! He's 6'10 and only weighs 195 pounds? Insert the old "he must have to wear skis in the shower" joke here.

Apparently that issue was addressed.  The latest version show 15 on the varsity and now includes the JV squad.
