@dsw_undefined: Which B1G personnel match-ups will be challenging for Michigan? (i.e. Burke vs Craft, etc.)
The Trey Burke vs. Aaron Craft match-up is fascinating because of how well Ohio State defended Burke last season. Burke was 12-of-36 with 16 turnovers in three games against the Buckeyes last season and he’ll be dying to prove that he can score the ball effectively against his hometown team. The Buckeyes frustrated Burke with their pick-and-roll defense a year ago but Burke can handle his own responsibilities defensively against the Buckeye lead guard.
Defensively, that’s far from Michigan’s biggest concern – even in that individual game. DeShaun Thomas will be a load for Glenn Robinson III to handle all over the floor. Thomas is one of the best scorers in the nation...
BEST OF MAXIM
Michigan Basketball will host Central Michigan on Saturday night at Crisler Center. Tip is scheduled for 7pm and the game will be televised on the Big Ten Network.
Central enters the game with a 7-5 record and an 0-2 mark against the Big Ten (losses to Iowa and Nebraska). They will feature an offense that puts 5 shooters on the floor. Their leading scorer is senior guard Kyle Randall...
John Beilein spoke with the media on Friday, previewing Michigan’s upcoming game against Central Michigan and addressing how his team looks coming back from their three-day holiday break. Beilein said Jon Horford is not practicing fully with the team but is doing drills and shooting on his own. There is no timetable for recovery as of now, but Beilein believes Horford will be back...
Nik Stauskas is a sharpshooting freshman on the Michigan Wolverines basketball team. On Christmas Eve, the Canadian native spent time working on his shot in the backyard by attempting to nail 45 out of 50 3-point shot attempts. Amazingly, he succeeded. If you don't believe me than watch the video for yourself.The 6-foot-6 guard is averaging 13.4 PPG and is shooting a whopping...
Michigan has plucked two of Ohio’s best from right in the heart of Buckeye-land over the past few seasons. Now Trey Burke and Caris LeVert are working hard to take each other… and Michigan to another level.
University of Michigan freshman Nik Stauskas is a perfect fit for Jon Beilein’s system. Despite being a college rookie, he can shoot it with the best of them. As of December 27, he’s shooting a ridiculous 55.7% (34 of 61) from downtown this season and is third in scoring (13.4 PPG) on the 12-0 Wolverines.
Stauskas and his teammates had a nine-day break between games over...
This kid is absolutely unbelievable. I thought he might replace Matt Vogrich as a starter when the Big Ten games started up, but he proved that he has to be in the lineup as much as possible. Stauskas has started four games this season and has been the Big Ten Freshman of the Week twice already.On Christmas Eve, he made a video of himself shooting 50 three pointers in his backyard...

Trey Burke: 9.5 (Last Week: 9.5)
It’s awfully difficult to play better than Burke is playing right now. When you score 27 points to go along with eight assists, five rebounds, three steals and no turnovers, analysts are going to start proclaiming you one of the...
Last Thursday during Michigan’s game against Eastern Michigan, Mitch McGary logged the best stat line of his career as a Wolverine: the freshman scored 10 points, all in the second half, and grabbed 11 rebounds in just 18 minutes of playing time.
On Christmas Eve, McGary received an early gift in recognition for his efforts, earning Big Ten Freshman of the Week...
