James Young is also on the Wisconsin Herd. James Young was in the NBA for all of last season. Xavier Munford is 1000x better than James Young. C'mon, Bucks, make it happen.

ETA: Welp.

Even the Japanese press is using the "first time since...." when talking about URI going to the tournament. Can someone please assure me that when we go this spring that nobody is going to say "for the second time since..."? Because I was really looking forward to that being over and I need it to stop.

Billy Baron was in the news today, being quoted in an article titled "What are LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball Getting Themsleves Into In Lithuania?"

Former American players say the rural Lithuanian town where the two teens have signed to play is like living on a farm. No restaurants, no malls, but hey, no traffic congestion. Players stay at the Royal SPA Residence in Birstonas, 10 minutes from the arena.

"You can count on one hand the amount of street lights in that city," said veteran American pro player Billy Baron, who spent his rookie season in Europe at Rytas Vilnius for the man who will be the Ball brothers' new coach, Virginijus Seskus. "There is nothing to do in that place. It's the ultimate life of going to practice and back to the hotel."

Baron, a recent gold medalist for Jeff Van Gundy and Team USA at the FIBA Americup, recalled: "We'd come out to the parking lot after practices, and Coach was there selling meat to players out of the trunk of his car. Some players actually bought that stuff from him."

"Signing them is a publicity stunt for sure, and it's working," Baron said. "The Balls are on SportsCenter, but I'm here laughing because I know exactly what's waiting for them on the other side. When LaMelo gets hit with one of those screens, he might not be able to stand up. Those guys are bangers, Lithuanians play like it's a UFC match. ... If Vegas put a line on the Balls' over-under in Lithuania, I think they'd break it off after a month. Maybe it does work, I'm not hating on the kids, but the odds are stacked against them."

Matthew Butler averages 17 PPG for a bad UT Martin team. (Apologies if this has been posted before.)
