Am I the only one who loves this kid? I know his numbers are inflated for the Class he plays in and saying he could afford to put on a few pounds is an understatement, but I just love getting excited about those gaudy numbers.

I agree. If nothing else, it shows that he's able to put a team on his shoulders and lead them to wins.

Five Below:

Lee - offers from Iowa, Iowa State, Xavier, Dayton, Baylor, etc
Albert - ?
Franklin - ?
Hibbitts - Samford
DeBerry - Detroit


I'm sure GreatLakesState knows a lot more about these players. Also I have no idea if a list coming from a Detroit paper might favor downstate players or do the reverse for the small-school upstate players.

Yes - although the two players with the "?" beside them may not be D1. My quick check didn't turn up anything. I imagine GreatLakesState could clarify.


Hass played last night in a 68-25 blowout. He had 23 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists in what might have been 16 or less minutes. Pellston led 45-10 at the half, so I imagine he played litle or none in the second half.

One thing about Hass is that, unlike this year's frosh, he is not likely to hurt BU from the FT line. I stumbled upon the Michigan all-time H.S. records and found that Hass is near the Michigan record with 194 FT's in a year (out of 230 attempts), and his .843 percentage also makes the record book. (The leader - Brad Redford, who now plays for Xavier - hit an amazing 474-508 for his career.)

BTW if you look at the all-time leading scorers you'll find some familiar names - including one player who coached against BU this year.

It says something when a player can get 41 points, 8 assists, and 5 steals - and the headline says "Hamlin leads Pellston past Warriors".

Andy Hamlin, Pellston's other good player, had 22 points and 18 rebounds. That's a really good rebounding total, but I imagine he gets the headline partly because Hass's phenomenal numbers have become almost expected and partly because Hass' coach (who happens to be his father) wants to spread out the accolades.

On the Free Press list, the next five after Hass, Lee has the offers mentioned and did have Texas offer before being booted from prep school on a rape arrest (charges dropped); Vincent Hunter has MAC offers and will go higher he's a junior; same with Denzel Watts; JD Tisdale is a junior with offers from Bowling Green and Toledo; Malik Albert would have mid-major offers, but no grades.

Free Press is fairer to out-state players than the Detroit News. Still, should've had Hass' AAU teammate Dontel Highsmith on there, he's a junior averaging 49 ppg! Like Chris, he goes back to his rural school after AAU, and it's a joke.

"In two games this week, Pellston senior Christopher Hass scored 70 points. That puts him at 1,960 for his career, meaning next week he should become the 34th boys player in state history to reach the 2,000-point mark.

At his current pace of 30 points per game, Hass, a 6-4 guard who signed with Bucknell, will finish his career amongst the top 10 scorers in state history, amongst legends of the Michigan prep game like Mark Macon, Drew Neitzel, Tory Jackson and Marcus Taylor. With a few tournament wins for Pellston, which is currently 6-0, and Hass could break into the top five.

Senior guard Chris Hass scored a game-high 37 points, and added six rebounds and eight steals to lead Pellston to a 68-29 victory over Johannesburg-Lewiston in Ski Valley action on Friday.Lets hope he is playing some defense as well.Someone is going to have to replace BC.

I think GreatLakeState would also be surprised. He made a comment on the other thread about Hass' defense definitely not being up to the standard of his offense.

BU (and every other team) has had very few freshmen come in who are ready to play D1 defense. That is one reason Cohen was such a nice recruit - having the ability to guard so many positions even his first year. And he has improved each year at that end of the court. It's too bad he never got to play with a healthy Tyree. That would have been some defensive combo for their two years together.

Methinks we are comparing apples and oranges here. BC was never an offensive star or "shooter" even in HS. He is truly a stopper for us and he'll be missed. Special defensive talents.

Haas is a scorer and offensive talent who plays against small school (read "suspect") competition. So we really should be comparing him and his potential to Bryson or Brackney and not BC. He's probably not playing tight defense, and doesn't have to, in the Ski Valley Conference.

True, there is definitely an element of apples-to-oranges. BC was a pretty good offensive player in HS though - averaged about 18 ppg against strong opposition (MUCH better than what Hass plays against) and scored at least 1/3 of his team's points. And he was always the focus of the opponents' defense.

BTW, I wonder how many remember that BC averaged almost 12 ppg for the Bison as a frosh and was also 3rd in rebounding and 2nd in assists iirc. He played close to 34 mpg as well, and is one of only four Bison in many years (maybe ever) to play more than 1000 minutes in a season. With Tyree out that year, BC was already the BU defensive stopper as well.

He has been an extremely effective player for the Bison, and has adapted his play to the needs of the team....doing what it takes. His DPOY honors are well deserved it is his consistency on defense that makes the Bison M2M as effective as it is. No doubt he could score more, but that's not his role.

The best part of his incredible line is that he scored those 35 on 10-12 shooting. 9-9 from the line. That works out to six 3s for those not wanting to relive Algebra 1.

While you can question the level of competition he regularly plays against, there's no question the kid is lights out. Putting the team on his shoulders in their last game is also a good sign that he can play up to the level when needed.

Speaking of next year, I'm curious as to Hass' height and weight now and what he could be as a Bison frosh.

Looks very slender from the photo in the link but I like the "lean" in his drive to the hoop and the arm bar against the defender. Will need all of this against the likes of LU and AU defense in the PL.

Anyone know his height and weight? And what's his PPG average?

He may, but those are metaphors.

What I do like is that he looks like he has gained a bit of weight in the last year. Now, going from 'scary thin' to 'really thin' still leaves him short of being at an effective playing weight at this level, but at least I can now see him putting on another 10 pounds in the next year or so.

I think the last really thin 2G to sign with a Patriot League team may have been CJ McCollum, who was being listed at 155 pounds at the time. I would be OK with Hass developing in that fashion. (McCollum's H.S. competition was a lot better however.)

I was about to weig hin on the metaphor v. simile discussion, but it seems to have been resolved amicably. But I don't know if the input of a history guy would have been much help. I'd probably have been better off waiting about ten years and then weighing in on the subject.

Happy to provide the error that kicked off the entertaining lesson. Just the latest exhibit of why I chose a career in engineering.

Hass should become the state's 5th all-time scorer if he reaches his average in regional semifinal tonight -- passing three players, including Drew Neitzel and Marcus Taylor.

If Pellston reaches the quarterfinals, he could pass Tory Jackson, Notre Dame's point guard from a couple years ago, for third place.

GLS, have you seen Hass play much this year? If so, would appreciate any comments on how his game has developed as compared to last year.

Hass' Pellston team won their first regional title in 68 years, with a 71-53 win. Hass had 30 points, 11 rebounds, and 7 assists.

They now advance to the State quarterfinal in Class D. GLS, what are their chances of winning the whole thing?

The two teams that had the best chance of beating Pellston, because they play physical defense and play bigger downstate teams, both got upset. They were on the other side of the bracket from Pellston anyway.

Pellston should win quarterfinal game, but they have to play in the Upper Peninsula where officating conspiracy theories are largely warranted. Carney-Nadeau has two good guards, but they're six inches shorter than Hass.

Southfield Christian would probably meet them in the semifinals. They're smaller and quicker than Pellston. Chris has played their top guys for years in AAU and never lost, but never blew them out either. Other than him, good chance the only black basketball players the Pellston kids have seen are on tv, so typically with a Northern Michigan at Breslin in that situation, one normally productive player psyches himself out and is worthless for the game. Like Pellston, Southfield Christian has no real tournament history.

I saw Hass play once this year. The biggest difference I see from last year is, his teammates are a lot better, he doesn't have to score 40 for them to win. His defense got better in AAU, hard to tell in high school either he's on top trapping, or on the bottom of a 2-3. And even though he doesn't look like it because he's so scrawny, he seems tougher, more competitive, and isn't denied going to the basket.

Named Class D POY today:

Thanks for that analysis GLS. For those who didn't follow the above link on Hass repeating as Class D POY, it answers the question someone asked earlier about Hass' stats for the year. He averaged 30.5 ppg, 5.8 apg, 4.5 spg, and 3.5 bpg. It does not mention his rebounds but based on some of the articles I imagine he is close to 7 rpg. Pellston has another good rebounder so Hass has help in that area.

30.5 points per game -- Hass' team and defense both improved. 24-1 Pellston won its first regional title in over 60 years. In addition to the scoring, Hass averaged 5.8 assists, 4.5 steals and 3.5 blocks per game.

Here is Michigan Class D tournament bracket. Pellston plays in the quarterfinals on Tuesday night.

Should they win on Tuesday, Hass' team would advance to the Final Four which is played in Michigan State's Breslin Center.

While at Bucknell if Hass averages half of what he averages in high school, we would all be happy. Half = 15.3 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 2.9 apg, 2.3 spg, and 1.8 bpg.

Another impressive note about his stats is that it seems he put up most of those numbers in relatively limited playing time.

Long article on Pellston going to the quarterfinals. It says he averaged 9 rpg.

Article on Hass being named AP Class D POY. Interesting that he has no shot at scoring as many career points as his sister did.

Where do you see Hass and the rest of the incoming class to fit in 2012-13 and beyond? I don't know a great deal about any player, but would love to get the thoughts of those "in the know."

Lost in the State quarterfinals to a team that made 14 or 15 threes. Hass had 30 pts, 11 rebounds, and 6 assists. He ended up with 2522 points and passed former Notre Dame star Tory Jackson for 3rd place in Michigan scoring history.

ok, it sure is early but do folks think Hass and/or Hoffman has the potential to get minutes and contribute as frosh. I am thinking Hoffman has more potential simply because I see Brackney already grabbing more minutes next year in front of Hass whereas Hoffman may have a clearer path, especially when Joe gets in foul trouble

Agree. By at least mid-December, I think at minimum Hoffman will get all the minutes at PF that JW does not get. Against certain teams, it is possible he could see some time at center as well.

As for Hass, I think it depends on his defense. We saw how few minutes Brackney played last year and how few minutes Singleton played this year. In both cases, the limited minutes were largely due to learning to play D1 defense. We'll have to see how Hass rates on the defense scale when he arrives.

This year Cohen, Brackney, and Singleton played a combined 38 mpg on average. If you assume that Bryson picks up an extra 3 mpg and Kaspar/Hill/Frazier pick up 6 mpg due to Ayers not playing much PG, that would leave about 29 mpg for Brackney, Singleton, and Hass to divide up.

Hass finishes second in the state of Michigan free throw shooting.The competition comprised 20 of the state’s best high school free throw shooters. The players were nominated by their respective coaches and those with the best season-long free throw percentage comprised the 20-shooter field.Hass, who finished his brilliant prep career at Pellston as the third all-time leading scorer in the state with 2,522 points, made 83 percent of his free throws during his senior season.Hass was edged out in the final round hitting 9 of 10 while the winner a sophmore hit all 10 of his.Hass also competed in the 3 point shooting contest and was eliminated in the third round.
