In answer to your four questions:
1.I personally don’t think so, but Coach B may not be willing to give up on him just yet. Of course, Eli and Z can make that a moot point if they play well enough.
2.Yes, I absolutely think he can. Just keep working, HARD, Isaiah. The team needs you.
3. I really don’t think so, but I hope I’m wrong. If Eli can play well and Z can come in and play great D and get us into the offense and not turn it over, we’ll be OK. He does need to hit his free throws, though!
4. No, I don’t think Michigan plays two bigs together. Right now I’m more enamored with the small ball lineup of Eli, MAAR, Poole, Mathews, and Moe, but that’s predicated on Poole continuing to play at a level near where he played today. And that’s not a knock on Teske or Duncan. Teske is doing a fine job as a backup 5, and I’ve always been a Duncan Robinson fan, more so than most, but I think he’s best suited to a sixth man role, as I’ve said before.
Just my thoughts, but I don’t get a vote!
