Cody Simpson Releases New Song Inspired by Miley Cyrus

  Cody Simpson Releases New Song Inspired by Miley Cyrus The 22-year-old singer is gushing about his "Golden Thing!"On Friday, the 22-year-old singer dropped a new track, "Golden Thing," in which he opens up about his budding romance with Cyrus. Their relationship follows her recent splits from Liam Hemsworth and Kaitlynn Carter.

Zavier Marquis Simpson (born February 11, 1997) is an American college basketball player for the Michigan Wolverines of the Big Ten Conference. He attended Lima Senior High School where he won the 2016 Ohio Mr. Basketball as a senior.

The 2018–19 Michigan State Spartans men' s basketball team represented Michigan State University in the 2018–19 NCAA Division I men' s basketball season.

When Juwan Howard took over as Michigan basketball coach, it was no secret that his NBA experience would influence his offensive approach.

Friday night’s 82-51 exhibition win over Saginaw Valley State was the first look at what that offense might look like. While the Wolverines’ pace and shot selection seemingly took on a whole new look, one aspect remained the same: Michigan’s offense is in Zavier Simpson’s hands.

The senior point guard dished out 11 assists in the Wolverines’ victory, most of which came in transition. Under his command, Michigan raced out to a 21-8 lead. He spearheaded the offense with a variety of transition passes, halfcourt pick-and-roll assists and lobs as he masterfully dissected the Cardinals’ zone.

But when Simpson left the game, the offense wasn't nearly as smooth. During Simpson’s first-half bench stint, the Wolverines went seven minutes without a made field goal.

“After that 10-minute mark in the first half, (ball movement) was bad,” said junior forward Isaiah Livers. “Even me, I blame myself too, the ball was sticking too much. Guys were just … hunting shots and excited — excited to be out there in front of the fans to just show people what they improved on and stuff like that in the offseason.

After attrition, Michigan’s guards know there are minutes -- and shots -- up for grabs

  After attrition, Michigan’s guards know there are minutes -- and shots -- up for grabs ANN ARBOR -- Michigan attempted 1,894 shots last season. The three players who took the most -- a combined 1,131 shots -- are no longer on the team. All three averaged about 30 minutes per game, and two were listed as guards.

“It’s understandable, but we gotta, once again, just reel it in. We’re trying to get one of these banners. By doing that, we have to have like 25 assists per game as a team.”

Without Simpson’s ability to set up shots for teammates, Michigan’s possessions began to sputter. Howard tried to let his underclassmen fix the situation themselves, but the frustration reached a breaking point when Saginaw Valley State trimmed the lead to five points.

When a game that appeared destined to be a blowout suddenly grew close, Simpson re-entered the game and delivered immediate results. In his first possession, he found Livers on the opposite wing for an open three-point attempt. Livers sank it, for a collective sigh of relief.

From there, it didn’t take long for Simpson to regain the reins.

“It’s great to see that (leadership) isn’t always coming from the coach when you have a guy like Zavier (or) Isaiah being vocal, making sure we’re organized, but then also making sure guys are doing their job,” Howard said. “And they do an excellent job of holding themselves accountable and taking ownership when they mess up.”

Junior guard Eli Brooks was the only other Wolverines with multiple assists. His strong transition effort led to three, but they were effectively negated by a trio of turnovers. Brooks and sophomore guard David DeJulius did their best in their opportunities as the primary ball-handler, but the rest of the roster’s vision pales in comparison to Simpson.

From Howard’s perspective, there’s room to improve.

“There were times we could’ve made an extra pass to an open man that was located on the three-point line. If you’re open, I want our guys to shoot it. I don’t want them to have a second guess or think the game and play like robots. I just want them to read the game, read time and possession.”

To Michigan’s advantage, few players in the country read the game as well as Simpson.
