The Summer League is in full swing and there are a bunch of former Big Ten players in action.  Though this is not an NBA site, many of these former Big Ten players are fighting for a roster position in the Summer League.  Success in the pros is highly related to a program's success, which makes the Summer League highly relevant for many of the programs in the Big Ten.  Here are some of the highlights from the day.

We detailed the full Summer League rosters and now we are going to be following those players during their games this summer.  Here are the highlights so far:

With that, let's take a look at how the Big Ten performed on this day of the Summer League.

Day Eleven Thoughts

First, here is my intro I am putting in each of these posts:

"Please insert a "grain of salt" warning with everyone of my statements regarding the Summer League.  The competition is much different than your typical NBA regular or postseason game.  Frankly, you just aren't going to run into your LeBron or Durant type of players in the Summer League.  This means that there are some weaknesses in players that just don't get exposed in these type of scenarios."

Essentially, it's fine to watch the Summer League and keep tabs, but if I say a guy is doing very well, don't just assume he's going to be NBA Rookie of the Year next year.  Everything is in the context of the Summer League.

Gary Harris rebounded a bit with a nice day.  Adreian Payne also had a big day, which helped to lead a productive one for the former Spartans.  Finally, Keith Appling's day may not pop off the sheet, but he did get into the game, which is nice to see.  The Spartans have certainly been putting together a good Summer League performance so far.

Michigan also had a few guys play on Tuesday.  Trey Burke had the best statistical night as Glenn Robinson III struggled.  GR3 has not been overly impressive in the Summer League so far.  He will have to take steps forward to be a true factor in the NBA.  Jordan Morgan continues to fight for a roster position.
