Associated Press Published 1:20 AM EST Dec 16, 2018 Orlando, Fla. — John and Little John Daly birdied the final six-holes for a 13-under 59 and a one-stroke lead Saturday in the PNC Father-Son Challenge. The Dalys played the back nine in 8-under 28 in occasional rain at Ritz-Carlton Golf Club Grande Lakes. Little John is 15. “It was just one of those days,” John Daly said. “We hit pretty much every fairway. We didn’t get ourselves in any trouble. After the third hole, Little John was putting good and he said, ‘I should go first to give him the line.’ I just made everything. It was a lot of fun”. They tied the tournament course record with the 59. David and Carter Toms were second in the scramble event, and Jack and grandson GT Nicklaus matched Stewart and Connor Cink at 61. Davis and Dru Love shot 62.

James Hawkins The Detroit News Published 5:08 PM EST Dec 14, 2018 Ann Arbor — When Michigan coach John Beilein recruited freshman forward Brandon Johns Jr., he never envisioned using him as a stretch five. How things have changed. With freshman Ignas Brazdeikis and sophomore Isaiah Livers flourishing and holding down the four spot for the No. 5 Wolverines, that has created a roadblock for Johns. But with the backup center position in need of depth, that has opened an avenue for Johns. “I think his eventual position will be a four-man…but you are who you can guard and that's where he is right now,” Beilein said Friday, ahead of Saturday's game with Western Michigan. “I'm just trying to get him on the floor. What's his easiest path to getting on the floor this year? That may be the easiest path right now.

Orion Sang Detroit Free Press Published 4:18 PM EST Dec 14, 2018 Michigan basketball's Brandon Johns will be the first to admit it. Defense wasn't a major focus of his in high school. "I mean, I played defense, but I didn’t really play defense," Johns said with a chuckle. There are a lot of adjustments that Johns, a freshman center out of East Lansing who turned 19 on Friday, has made since arriving in Ann Arbor. Learning how to play defense is chief among them. The Wolverines allow 55.2 points per game, third fewest in the country, and rank No. 1 in adjusted defensive efficiency. If someone can't hold their own on that end of the court, odds are they won't see much playing time. Which is why it's no coincidence that Johns averages just 4.1 minutes per game. "I lacked a lot on defense," Johns said. "I think that’s probably the hardest transition from high school to college, is just defense. So, now looking at … [Read more...] about Michigan basketball: Brandon Johns trying to crack rotation
