This team is far superior to those teams though. They will not blow this game. Is rest moe the next two games at least. Teske could use more time and I’d like to see us run more offevse through him. I think teske could end up being a very valuable offensive weapon off the bench. That quick face up mid range shot is unstoppable and I think with more live game experience it could be automatic.
He also has the makings of a good 3 ball. He sets great screens and rolls hard. He needs to work on finishing strong because he’s almost impossible to stop in the roll he’s so tall you can just lead him by lofting it, I don’t think we will miss a beat with Jon out there against these smaller teams… Just let him know he has to be aggressive abd step up. I’d like him to work on banking that face up on the block. Much like Duncan did. It’s a tough shot but it’s much easier at that Angle when your 7 foot with long arms. Like I said it could be unguardable. He’s agile enough to use a pump fake then blow by his guy/ use a pivot spin move as a counter move once guys hace to respect/ overplay the fade up shot.
As others noted this is a chance to get Davis 10-15 min over the next couple games. A preview for when moe leaves. Should give us a good glimpse if he will stick around or if casketon will be the back up from the jump. I for one have always liked Davis and think he’s going to surprise. He’s not the usual Michigan big to me besides that he has a soft touch/ can shoot a bit. I’d love to see him in action and get him some post touches… he had great footwork and post moves out of high school and was very physical. I’d love to see if that translates. I think we will all be surprised at how effective he will be, especially as our future back up
