Mitch McGary's prep squad remains unbeaten and notes on Michigan basketball's other 2012 signees

By Nick Baumgardner

Michigan basketball super-recruit Mitch McGary is off to a rousing start this season at Brewster (N.H.) Academy. He and the Bobcats improved to 8-0 Monday with a 102-57 win over Rise Academy.

McGary dropped in 13 points in the win, as his team now prepares to host the 2011 Brewster Invitational this weekend.

McGary's full individual statistics this season are rarely made public. In a recent email to, Brewster coach Jason Smith explained why.

"On a team of eight future D1 players, it's important to stress TEAM stats over individual stats," he wrote.

Can't argue there.

All 3 of these players are REALLY good. Michigan basketball is going to be very fun to watch next year and after. Stauskas' backyard mini-court is pretty sweet. It's obvious he and his parents are pretty committed to his success on the court. He looks to be the best outside shooter we've had come in to Michigan in quite some time.

Next year will definately be interesting. Upon the arrival of the 2012 class Michigan will actually have comparable talent, albeit young, to most programs. I have always heard, give Beilien the same talent as most programs and watch out.

That was the coolest thing ever. I don't think he missed. He's going to be Michigan's best shooter since Matt Vogrich. He's going to tear up those spartans.....Go Blue Baby!! 13 time national champs
