You’re right. Isaiah couldn’t effectively defend Maye. There will be a lot of players this year who will not be able to defend him. He’s big, he’s strong, and he’s a senior. Robinson couldn’t guard him, and as hard as Hibbitts tried, he really WAS abuse by Maye. We really didn’t have a matchup for Luke Maye.
As to your second comment, I was pretty happy to see Brent Hibbitts for a, kind of, extended period of time. I watched the kid in high school at Hudsonville and if he was playing at Oakland University or one of the regionals he’d be in the rotation or even starting. He’s a great kid and I’m glad he’s a wolverine, but, boy on that one take by Maye, it was hard to watch! Again, Brent Hibbitts could be a rotation player or a starter at any DII school in our state or even at Oakland or one of the regionals, but he’s at Michigan because he loves Michigan. I think Dylan is right, it was a clear message to two of our seniors. I hope it worked. We’ll know more tomorrow.
