I hate to be critical of any kid after such a great year but it's obvious to me that after tonight that next year's lineup should be the following:
1 - DeJulius/Z
3 - Matthews/Iggy B
4 - Livers/Johns
It may not look like this in Nov/Dec but by January it should.
As much as Z improved, he's limited. He can't shoot from the perimeter and he can't shoot free throws. His defense was great at times, but he also looked real bad against some elite athletes. This offense is eons better with a true scorer at the 1.
Teske had a couple of good games for us this year, but again, he's limited. His lack of athleticism is too much to overcome for what he offers. He should never be more than a backup at Michigan.
Johns might not be a natural 5, but hopefully he can play both the 4&5 in Beilein's system.
While I think Mo is gone, I don't think it would be crazy for him to return. He needs to be alot more consistent before he does anything productive in the NBA. Of course if he's being told he's in the lottery that changes everything.
