Darrun Hilliard is healthy and ready to make an impact for the Detroit Pistons

Darrun back.

TGIF, 'Nova Nation! Sorry for my absence yesterday, my laptop wasn't behaving. For all you Darrun Hilliard fans, there's a really great feature on him below which goes through an injury-riddled summer. Good news though - he's healthy now and ready to rock.

Big weekend ahead with Justin Smith on campus for his official visit. I was skeptical it would happen with Jermaine Samuels already committed, but it looks like 'Nova wants to add Smith as well. Fingers crossed.

And now, the "news."
