    Quick clip of his involvement. Only played ~15 minutes which will be interesting to track as far as how the rotation shakes out. I assume they were trying different angles because it was a friendly.

    Feel like he has a lot of “hidden skills” including setting good screens and making good entry passes. Should be effective as a high-low guy for U-M this year.

    Did Olivier ever defend Jonas Valančiūnas? Would be interesting to see how well he could defend him

    Yeah, Jonas scored a couple of buckets on him early and then missed a post-up shot later.

    We’ve got our second Edey stopper next to Jace now

    Good news is that Olivier hit a bunch of threes with Jonas guarding him and those are shots he’ll be able to get when guarded by guys like Edey.
