Not a very big team, and not a very deep team. They play a lot of small ball, and they can definitely shoot from the outside (DO NOT LET THEM SHOOT FROM THE OUTSIDE). Their center has attempted 0 3-point shots all year, but he's a guy who is going to try and post you up (DO NOT GET IN FOUL TROUBLE WAGNER). The good news, if Wagner does get in foul trouble I think Teske could have a huge day on the boards. On paper they look a lot like the Beilein teams of the past. The good news is the Beilein teams of the present are a lot more athletic, and play a lot better defense, and I think that is going to ultimately be the deciding factors.
