Wow, that was fast, thanks. It does look to be more on the pass, though I think Brooks is also passing over the shorter defender – either way it speaks to chemistry between the two. Next year or even later this year that’s a dunk.
As for the stats discussion, Teske is shooting 58% from the line, so expected value of an and-one is 2.58 points vs two FTs which is 1.16 – that’s a big difference. This is about what could propel Teske in the future from being a good player to being a top-line guy.
Also, Teske has gone 4-11 against high major competition (LSU, UNC, IU, OSU, UCLA, and Texas). He did got 3-4 against VCU, but even that would put him below 50%. Granted, Texas had Bamba and NC had size and the game was kind of a debacle and he was 0-5 in those two games, so we probably shouldn’t make too much of that.
The upside of Mo’s injury was getting Teske a bunch of minutes and hopefully that pays off going forward. Having him to back up Mo is a great luxury and he could be a real factor for Michigan even if his minutes are limited.
