So there's that.
Nik Stauskas get Big Ten Player of the Week
That step-back 3 pointer vs Wisc was the play that put him over the top this week.
Congratulations to Nik! I love the way he's stepping up his game.
nice to see that he's being appreciated not only in the B10, but nationally.
Yessir -- another season and a half to develop that playmaking/defense side of his game, and he will be a mid-first round draft in 2015.
There are more words in the Tags than in your post.
if you had Stauska pegged as the most productive recruit from the 2012 class.
Watch the Stauskas YouTube series. Listen to his father describe Nik's dedication; always studying, always practicing, always trying to improve. As Malcom Gladwell asserted in "Outliers" having innate talent is not enough. What separates the best from the rest is practice, practice, practice.
Much respect for Nik, his talent and especially his work ethic. Won't be surprised to see him succeed at the next level.
especially with Nik stepping-up as a leader on and off the court.
Here's to keeping it going through the gauntlet remainder of the schedule! 2014!
I run this shit
According to MLive, he was shooting 48.3% from the field for the week and over 90% on free throws. In addition to the 21 points against Penn State, he had 23 against Wisconsin, 11 of which were the final points to seal the deal for Michigan. He also added 4 assists, 4 rebounds, 2 block and a steal at Madison as well. An incredible week for Nik and a well-deserved mention.
Dan Dakich got ripped apart on twitter by MSU fans for claiming Stauskas is either at or near the top of the B1G player of the year race.
Sparty fans are being butthurt.
More than just a shooter.jpg
Kate Upton needs to show up to more games so Spike Albrecht can go nuclear again. I would love to see two consecutive M players get POTW.
