I know we’ve been mixtape-heavy the last couple of days (See: Duval, Trevon and Adebayo, Bam), but there’s a couple reasons for that.
- September is a slow month.
- These mixtapes are pretty fun to watch.
Alabama-commit Terrence Ferguson is one of the best, as the long-armed, 6-foot-6 shooting guard is freak-of-nature athlete. Some of the dunks that he throws down in this video are ridiculous. I don’t even care that they are staged in a layup-line setting. Look at this!:
The craziest part?
Athleticism is not even T-Ferg’s biggest strength, as he is one of the deadliest three-point shooters in the Class of 2016. He’s a sniper. And when you put all that together, it’s pretty easy to see why Ferguson is a top 15 recruit.
Michigan State recently made their way out to Italy for a team trip, and during their final stop on the trip, a picture of head coach Tom Izzo playing the accordion made its way around twitter.
As you might have expected, there was more to that story.
As in, video:
That’s not the end of the Spartans’ musical “genius”, either, as LouRawls ‘Tum Tum’ Nairn, Eron Harris and other performed some … acapella karaoke?
Anyway, it looks like the Spartans had a great time out there. It’s hard not to have a great time in Italy.
Over the long weekend, Arizona, one of the favorites — as usual — to win the Pac-12 this season, released a pump-up video for the program.
The production is sleek and it’s sure to invigorate the fan base. The only qualm I have? It features players that, for the most part, won’t be playing for the Wildcats this season.
With four of their five starters graduating and with a talented recruiting class that will be seeing a lot of minutes, it’s hard to put something like this together in September. I get it. But with the new school year here and the new season on the horizon, it feels like an odd tie to be celebrating the likes of Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Stanley Johnson.
