If we can keep one of him, GRIII, and Hardaway, I'll be happy.
I'm saying Hardaway stays. GR3 might stay after scouts continue to watch him in hostile games.
Craft knows how far he can take his defense without getting a foul which is a very valuable commodity. One thing I seemed to notice (maybe just felt this way) was that after Craft caused a couple of UM turnovers Burke et al. realized that they could probably get away with the same kind of defense and they certainly started guarding a lot harder and closer after that. Anybody else get that sense?
And watch him continuously throw up brick after brick...yikes!
Burke and Hardaway leave, GR3 stays IMO.
We might have to deal with him again in the Big Ten Tournament.
And we'll certainly have to deal with next season.

Craft gets away with way too much contact. He is a great defender but i just can't have as much respect for his game because the refs just refuse to call a foul on him.
Most of the top defenders play like that though. I wonder if he can play in the NBA...
Not like Craft does. That dude mugs the crap out of people and never gets called for it.
I thought there were some questionable calls but he plays very good defense and as a well known defender he's going to get the majority of calls going his way. You see it in the NBA too. I don't really have too many problems with it.
It shouldn't be that way when he is going up against a POY candidate like Burke. The respect from the refs should go both ways in a Burke/Craft matchup and it clearly doesn't.
