Coach John Beilein can play three freshmen and still win. That's how good No. 2 Michigan is. Nik Stauskas, Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III all play at least 14 minutes per game, with Stauskas and Robinson III each playing 30-plus minutes. The Wolverines are stacked and have a dynamic backcourt in junior Tim Hardaway Jr. and sophomore Trey Burke. Key player: Point guard Burke is one of the best in the nation, averaging 17.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 7.4 assists per game all while shooting 53.6 percent and turning the ball over less than twice per game. Key stat: Guard Stauskas ranks fifth nationally by making 56.5 percent of his 3-point attempts. Big Ten opener: at Northwestern on Thursday.
