Zak Irvin, Soph., SF: The 6-6 wing took his game to another level in Italy after averaging 6.7 points and shooting 42.5 percent from three-point range as a freshman. "He was really, really good out there — put on a show," Albrecht said. "He worked a lot on his game in the offseason and obviously got stronger with [strength] Coach [Jon] Sanderson. His ability to put the ball on the floor and get to the rim, make plays for others, was the big difference." Kameron Chatman, Fr., PF: The freshman four-star from Portland, Ore., Colum- bia Christian was everything the coaches expected he'd be. "With this group, Kam and all of these kids grabbed defensive rebounds and pushed the ball to the front court. Their rebounding, particularly defensively, was very, very positive," Meyer said. Mark Donnal, RS-Fr., C: The 6-10 redshirt freshman will have to battle with 6-9 freshman Ricky Doyle and will share time, but he showed well. The platoon wore the Italian teams down. "It was almost like hockey, the way we were bringing guys in," Albrecht said. "By the second and third quarter, teams were just done. That was exciting to see." — Chris Balas 1-800-421-7751 • Michigan BaBy gift ideas VISIT OUR ONLINE STORE! for
