I think Beilein is starting Vogrich just to give a nod to the senior. Starting lineups really don't matter as much in basketball, it's common to start a Senior over a Freshman early in the season just to respect the 4/5 years the senior has put in. Who Beilein plays to close the game tells more about what he thinks about his players than who he plays to start

Stauskas.  Are you fucking kidding me? I've been saying, this player is closer to Glen Rice than any we've had since Rice won us a championship.  For those that are too young to have seen Rice play for UM, this is what he did.  Very similar.  Killed it from outside, and by doing so, created space enough to drive to the basket and score/get fouled.  Rice was taller, but that is the only real difference in their games.  Stauskas is only a freshman?  He'll be here at least three years because he is not the most atheltic player - which will hurt him on the next level.  But this kid is going to (and already is) going to get serious national attention.  Who is a better shooter in the country?

Trey Burke 4th best player on our team right now.

1. Hardaway

2/3. Robinson Jr. / Stauskas

4. Trey Burke

I think the year will end with Burke battleing Hardaway, but so far Burke justisn't in in sync and seems to be taking bad shots and pushing it when he shouldn't.  Not sure why = can't figure it out.  With that said, it's amazing that we have three players playing so well that they can overcome several fairly poor games in a row by Trey.  This team is stacked.

Coach is not going to be happy with the D this half. Offense looks unbelievably good, just an incredible amount of weapons with a NBA prospect running the show. Defense looks average to good. Same as last year. Need an eraser at the rim to force more low % outside looks.
