Michigan game just like any other for Laval Lucas-Perry
“It wasn’t as emotional as I thought it would be,” Lucas-Perry said. “It just felt like another team we had to beat.”
Lucas-Perry said after the game he didn’t speak to any of his former teammates, but he can’t remember a team at any level shooting as well as the Wolverines did Saturday, going 63 percent from 3-point range in the second half.
Oakland had a chance to cut the Wolverines’ lead down to four when Lucas-Perry’s 3 rimmed out with 4:07 to play.
“I thought it was going in,” he said. “It felt good. It went in, out and back in, then out again. That was a game-changing play that could’ve cut the lead to three.”
The Golden Grizzlies take on Lucas-Perry’s other former team, Arizona, Dec. 20. Oakland coach Greg Kampe insisted this week it was a coincidence both teams are on the schedule this season.
