Vince Ellis Detroit Free Press Published 6:03 AM EST Dec 1, 2018 The Detroit Pistons have faced one of the weakest schedules in the NBA to this point. The good victories over the Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers have been surrounded with seven wins against the five worst teams. The schedule starts to get tougher — starting Saturday night when the Golden State Warriors visit Little Caesars Arena. Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond have done most of the heavy lifting through the first 19 games for the Pistons (12-7).

David Goricki The Detroit News Published 11:12 AM EST Nov 26, 2018 New Haven – Romeo Weems was an impact player as soon as he stepped on the court for New Haven his freshman year. Now, Weems is the premier player in the state and a national name as well, earning gold medals while playing on the U.S. national team in Argentina in past years. He is The Detroit News’ preseason No. 1 player in the state. Weems, who will play next year at DePaul, is the overwhelming favorite to win the state’s Mr. Basketball award, especially with top competitors Rocket Watts (SPIRE Academy), Harlond Beverly (Montverde) and Myron Gardner (SPIRE) transferring to prep schools to finish out their careers. It’s not that Weems wasn't recruited by a prep academy or two, including Oak Hill Academy in Virginia, but he wanted to remain at New Haven to continue to build on his legacy.
