Michigan's rotation options

Michigan itself isn’t as easy to define. Between Mitch McGary’s absence due to a “lower back condition” and the departure of Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. to greener NBA pastures, questions outnumber answers.
 
What Beilein does have is options. That became apparent Thursday. He mentioned playing a traditional lineup, perhaps 6-foot-1 point guard Derrick Walton Jr. along with a trio of 6-foot-6 wings and one big man. He floated the possibility of going small -- maybe a backcourt of Walton and 5-foot-11 Spike Albrecht, two wings and a big. Or he could go with the small backcourt, one wing, maybe Glenn Robinson III, and two bigs, with 6-foot-8 Jordan Morgan and 6-foot-10 Jon Horford anchoring the inside.

Besides making the tournament and being in the top half of the Big 10 I have definite expectations for this team so it will be interesting to see how all this shakes out.

  • I have a feeling that lineups and matchups will be a big talking point this season...

    Mcgary's injury is very troubling.... They can continue giving us coach speak about the severity, but lets be honest...back injuries linger and flare up ALL the time.

    Will again probably need both the Frosh to grow up quickly and be a factor.

    And I'm not sold on Horford. Yeah, he's tall...but he needs to play tougher.

    Go Blue!!
  • McGary's injury is a concern. If he is out for an extended period of time it will affect our ability to beat the better teams in the Big Ten. But at the same time, I am not overly worried about the outcome of the team.
      Look at what we had to work with in the post before McGary showed up last March. Michigan has never had a low post threat, but Beilein has been able to bring us winning seasons with the likes of Morgan, Novak, Smotrycz, McLimans.
       The good thing is, we now have established talent on the roster that can still bring us wins.
