Did You See This? Stauskas hits 3, says, 'I'm back!'

Entering Wednesday’s game, Michigan sharpshooter Nik Stauskas had made just 7 of his last 22 3-pointers (32 percent). That’s not a huge slump for many shooters across the country, but Stauskas drained 57 percent of his triples during the nonconference season.

Heck, he even hit 45-of-50 on his outside court over the holiday break. It looks like Stauskas is back. And he let everyone know it after making consecutive early 3s in the win over Northwestern.

He really did. As Stauskas backpedaled down the court following his second trey, BTN cameras caught him saying, “I’m back!” Watch it in the video above.

Stauskas finished the night 3-of-5 from downtown and scored 11 points, one of four Wolverines in double figures.

Check out Stauskas’ freshman game log:
