Actually Carter-Williams said that whether Michigan puts Stauskas on Fair or Triche, they plan to attack him. Specifically, he said, "I'm not trying to knock Nik or anything, he's a great player and a great shooter, but if we attack him, he's going to have to work."
Doesn't seem that inflammatory or unreasonable at all. If you had to pick spots on Michigan's D to attack, where would you go? Even just reading this board over the course of the season, I've heard enough complaints about particular players' defensive skills to know where those spots are. Syracuse's offense is not great, but defense is not Michigan's strong suit.
I hope Stauskas gets hot just like he did vs. Florida, but Syracuse seems inclined to stop that from happening. We've all seen games where Stauskas just doesn't have it.
