When Bill Sall was named as NMU Men's Basketball Coach, he inherited a roster that had less than ten players. So a priority is getting players.
Sall has started that project with two Upper Peninsula Dream Team players from last season.
Upper Peninsula Class 'D' Player of the Year Brett Branstrom confirmed on his Facebook page Monday that he has signed a national letter of intent to play for the Wildcats. Branstrom averaged more than 25 points, 21 rebounds and 5 blocks per game last season for the Mid Peninsula Wolverines.
The 6' 5" all-everything player for the orange and white is the all-time leading scorer at Mid Peninsula with 1,785 points. Branstrom was named first team all-state in Class 'D' by the Associated Press and the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan.
Carney-Nadeau's Wade Schetter will also join the Wildcats. He poured in 22 1/2 points per game, along with collecting six rebounds, nearly six assists and five steals per game for the Wolves.
Schetter scored 1,561 points in his high school career. He was named honorable mention all-state by both the Associated Press and the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan.
