    Well I am no expert on Michigan, but I can tell you one thing: he's a male college athlete, so I can pretty much guarantee he's fully against pulling it out.

    Burke is going to struggle to score against SU if his outside shot isn't falling. He's going to get points, but Cuse is too long and active for him to finish inside consistently. But it wouldn't surprise me to see him go off at the same time. His jumper is uncanny off the dribble, particularly when he's pulling up while driving to his left.

    They've gotten this far. I don't think their youth is that much of a hurdle.

    If the backcourt gets in trouble, LeVert and Albrecht are capable backups. LeVert's got a nice handle but can't finish. Albrecht is essentially a mini-Stauskas with a very tight handle. The frontcourt's tricky. McGary's the best option by far. Horford has terrible hands and Morgan's been mentally absent since losing his starting spot, but has a soft touch off of pick-and-roll feeds from Burke.

    Yes. Stauskas is a douche. He does that stupid three-goggles thing and loses guys in transition defense. Much, much more athletic than people give him credit for. He's laterally slow, but has good hops. But he's a damn good shooter.

    It'll be Stauskas on CJ and Hardaway on MCW. One thing I noticed, which might be false, is that MCW has a shaky handle. If Burke find success in pressing him in the halfcourt on defense, it'll probably be Burke and an incredibly soft hedge from the screen-man's defender. Stauskas will struggle against CJ. It wouldn't surprise me to see G-Rob get on CJ if Stauskas gets burnt repeatedly and a second big coming in to check Southerland.

    McGary has a pretty good face-up jumper and reads defenses well. He hasn't used it all that much, but he's a very underrated jumpshooter. Slightly less efficient than Dieng for Louisville on a PPS basis.

    I would not say that MCW has a shaky handle. I think he has a lazy handle, which, when combined with his height, makes him ripe for being picked by small, pesky guards. He just doesn't protect it as well as he needs to.

    It depends entirely on what the defense does. He's a very good decision maker. That's his best attribute besides his mid-range pull-up. Against Cuse I can see him taking a huge number of mid-range jumpers.

    Just rewatched IU game... Yogi actually penetrated to the foul line pretty easily, but totally inept once there... Interested to know how many points you guys think Trey scores tomorrow. I think he probably gets around 18... So that's 18 more point our offense needs to come up with compared to the IU game...

    Very rarely does he break it out. You might see him use it after timeouts to wreck set plays designed for man-to-man defense. Maybe once or twice tomorrw.

    Around 20. His efficiency on those twenty points will be very important. If Michigan's behind late, Trey has a tendency to play hero-ball and just chuck up long step-backs.

    Yes. The off-topic board is nice. I hang around MGoBlog a lot and this is a bit similar to that.

    No need to chase around here, fellas.

    I seemingly have an unlimited amount of likes to give out.

    If Trey gets 20points distributed evenly throughout the game, and not just garbage points late, I think we'll be in trouble... I think we need to hold him to something like 12points...

    It's a guarantee he puts up 20 shots, so 12 points on 20 shots would be a good sign for Cuse.
