Corey Petros impresses in game action
“Petros showed everybody what we’ve been saying about him that he’s got a chance to be the next great big at Oakland," Kampe said.
Oakland outrebounded Spring Arbor, 46-24, maintaining its preseason dominance on the boards.
“His first stint out there wasn’t very good," Kampe said. "That was expected, but he came back and handled the game very well and played his tail off. He got us a lot of second chances. In the future, as he grows, he’s going to score more with that instead of kicking out the ball. The way we can shoot it, (that’s) a wide-open 3."
The Grizzlies proved capable of hitting those shots Wednesday, shooting 10 of 24 from long range, led by Travis Bader's four 3s.
“Our other freshmen were very freshman-ish," Kampe said of Matt Poches, Dante Williams and Korab Imami.
"Poches showed some very good signs of why we recruited him. Sikora was outstanding in his first stint."
