    Remember a lot of those conference wins have come against poor BIG teams. Wisconsin was huge, however. No doubt.

    Stauskus will undoubtedly do what others have done. Showcase his skills this season and then see where the "experts" have him going in the draft. The interesting thing will be is if UM does not make the Big Dance or if they don't go far. He won't be able to showcase as much. Could drop his stock.

    Pistons could probably use a shooter like Nik. He wouldn't have to slip far for us to pick him up.

    We would need to get rid of Joe first. Since he was burned by the Mateen pick, he has not selected a player who grew up or went to school in Michigan since then....other than signing a past his prime C-Webb in 07.

    Looks like the Wolverines don't miss McGary that much...knocking off ranked teams like Wisconsin and Iowa >>>Next up Sparty in East Lansing on Saturday.

    Probably won't get that one, but you never know though........if Nik and Spike are hitting from the outside, Levert and GR3 are driving and Morgan and Horford are taking care of the middle, then there could be an upset...

    Pistons could go Sparty in round 1 with Gary Harris and go Blue in round 2 with Stauskas.

    If they get to the sweet sixteen, it will be him leading them there. He probably wouldn't be a lottery pick, but at least top 20-25. I don't have any stats in front of me, but to me it seems that his shooting was better last season. Maybe because all the pressure was on the Burke or Hardaway.

    This year it's him first, so there seems to be some rush shots that maybe throwing off his percentages.

    I'm still in awe by his youtube video where he drained 46 in a row and 70 out of 76. I'm not sure if there is anything that I can do 46 times in a row without screwing it up.

    He better start working on his nba corner 3's, because that is going to be his life.

    Actually, the NBA corner 3 is about the same distance as the NCAA corner 3.

    The court he is shooting on in the video has a high school size (19', 9") three-point line. The NCAA recently moved the arc out to 20' 9". The NBA arc is 23'9" from the hoop. The corners are shorter on all three of the arcs.

    Injuries should make the game interesting. I'd rather see both teams at full strength.

    Nik is a beast, he has the total offensive package. He's probably better than Singler.

    Some will say Sparty was missing a couple of key players due to injury, but no McGary for Michigan....kind of evens it up?? Anyway a nice win for the Wolverines at the Breslin Center after trailing most of the game.... I got of home just in time to see the last 10 minutes..and when I heard Vitale doing the game I figured it didn't look good for the Wolverines as he is normally their kiss of death behind the mic....

    Coming on strong for the last half of the season. Always a nice victory against Izzo.
