Stauskas is far from a one-dimensional player, but he certainly has one skill that sets him apart from other players and that's his shooting ability. If there's one word that describes his shooting, it's sharpshooter. He is deadly outside the arch and demands defensive attention on almost the floor. If you leave him open, odds are that the ball is going through the net. Stauskas has some other offensive skills, but his main weapon is his shooting. He has a solid handle and ball handling skills, but I don't anticipate he will get a lot of time at the point, even though he is probably capable of playing the position pretty well. His one knock is that he is not the best on the defensive side. He's not a horrible defender, but he will need some improvement there if he wants to see a lot of time on the court.
Here are the basic listings for Stauskas:
As for this season, I think you will see Stauskas get a lot of playing time, but it will be in limited intervals. When Michigan is sluggish on offense or needs to score a lot of points quickly, they will bring in Stauskas to light it up outside the arch. This means he will probably get 5-15 minutes a game, but for a true freshman on a roster like Michigan's roster, that's pretty substantial. The majority of the hype will be on GR3 and McGary, but I think Stauskas has the ability to make those contributions that make a good team into a great team. Look for a pretty good season out of Stauskas.
