    Expecting big things from Teske this year. He should be able to put up Isaac Haas-like numbers. Haas’ JR. year stats - 19.5 min/game - Averaged 12.6 pts and 5 rebounds per game earned him all B1G Honorable Mention. These numbers should be well within Jon’s reach. Also, Teske should own Haas with respect to other stats - for instance Haas only had 26 blocks, 9 steals and 20 assists his junior year. By way of comparison, Teske playing 180 less minutes last season than Haas played to compile the above numbers, had 26 blocks, 23 steals and 15 assists his sophomore year.

    I would be very pleasantly SHOCKED if Teske was Haas except better. 12.6 points in 19 minutes for Teske?

    Jon Teske and Isaac Haas are significantly different players. Haas is one of the better post-up scorers in college hoops over the last decade and that’s an area where Teske struggles. Haas was massive and moved very poor laterally and that’s an area where Teske is actually very good. Teske can shoot a little bit and Haas couldn’t. I don’t really see any comparison.

    Michigan needs 25 solid minutes of good defense, rebounding and finishing from Teske with a hint of floor spacing and they’ll be happy.

    There is a big difference between predicting: 1) Teske will be “able to put up Haas-type numbers”; and 2) Teske will play the center position in a way similar to the way Haas did.

    Teske might be one of the last options offensively this year, but it wouldn’t even shock me if you told me he was the 3rd best three point shooter by percentage in the starting five at the end of the season. And if the pick and pop becomes a real thing even once or twice a game (I think it will), that could be a huge boost to this team’s offensive ceiling
