In the 2015-16 B1G season 9 players averaged at least 5.0 mpg, eliminate Caris Levert (only 2 B1G games played) and you've got your 8-man rotation. And had Levert stayed healthy, Aubrey Dawkins (15.5 mpg) likely drops below 5.0 mpg and DJ Wilson (5.1 mpg --- mostly as a center) may have slipped below the 5.0 mark as well? Even with Wilson, that's 3 guards, 3 wings, and a muddled Center situation in the rotation. And come NCAA tournament time, UM went with 5 perimeter players (Walton, MAAR, Irvin, Robinson, Dawkins -- Dakich saw 7min in the 2 games, Chatman 4min)
In 2014-15, yes, 11 different players averaged at least 5.0mpg in B1G play, but eliminate Walton and Levert --- both injured and played in less than half of the B1G schedule --- and you're back to 3 guards, 3 wings, and a muddled Center situation (Doyle, Bielfeldt, Donnal each averaged between 19.5 & 9.0 mpg). If Walton & Levert stay healthy (both were seeing over 33mpg), then Dakich (5.8mpg) & Chatman (11.8mpg) likely drop under 5.0mpg.......again sending things back to 3 guards, 3 wings, and a muddled Center situation.
This season is it possible that both Teske & Davis split minutes at backup Center giving UM 9 guys with at least 5.0 mpg in B1G play, OK, might happen. But Beilein's M-O still indicates expect his rotation to chop down to 6 players on the perimeter (usually 3 wings and 3 guards). And if there's an expectation that Wagner may float between Center and Wing this season, that makes it even less likely that more than 6 other perimeter players will be regulars in rotation in any given game.
