Stay or go: What should Mitch McGary do?

No Big Ten player has a tougher decision to make about his future plans than Michigan’s Mitch McGary. A season ago, fresh off his breakout NCAA tourney performance, McGary was a hot name in the NBA draft. He elected to return to school, of course, and went on to play eight games before undergoing season-ending back surgery. Almost 22 and having not played since 2013, McGary is in a difficult position. Does he enter the draft and try to prove he’s healthy in pre-draft workouts, or does he come back to Michigan to enjoy college life and attempt to improve

Glenn Robinson III, Nik Stauskas declare for NBA draft

Michigan sophomores Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III both declared for the NBA draft at a press conference Tuesday afternoon. Fellow sophomore Mitch McGary is still weighing his future plans. Stauskas leaving is no shock. He’s generally projected to be a first-round pick, just outside the lottery. But Robinson’s planned hop to the pros is a mild surprise, as he had an up-and-down campaign. [ MORE: Who’s on the move? See B1G NBA draft entrants, transfers ] Stauskas took his game to another level in 2013-14, adding an effective dribble-drive game to his unmatched razor-sharp shooting skills en route to averaging 17.5

Which undeclared B1G player is most NBA-ready?

It’s already mid-April, which means that the NBA draft is quickly approaching. Several Big Ten players have yet to officially announce their future plans. That list includes the likes of Branden Dawson (Michigan State), A.J. Hammons (Purdue), Gary Harris (Michigan State), Mitch McGary (Michigan), Glenn Robinson III (Michigan) and Nik Stauskas (Michigan). That’s a talented list of players, which brought me to the following query: Which of these undeclared Big Ten players is the most NBA-ready right now? I posed the question to eight top-notch writers who cover Big Ten hoops closely. Here is what I got. * Michigan State’s

Merriman: What lineups could look like if stars leave

April 27th. Remember that date, Big Ten basketball fans. That is the day in which college basketball players across the nation must decide whether they are going to stay in school or make the jump to the NBA. There are several Big Ten players who currently face that decision and will have to make a choice in the upcoming weeks. On that list is Michigan’s Nik Stauskas, Glenn Robinson III and Mitch McGary, Michigan State’s Gary Harris and Branden Dawson and Purdue’s A.J. Hammons. Wisconsin’s Sam Dekker and Frank Kaminsky are also included on the list, although several media outlets,

Yarina: 5 B1G breakout players for 2014-15

While analysts across the nation are busy compiling their super-early 2014-15 hoops polls, I thought I’d go with a more exact-inexact exercise and share my top five 2014-15 breakout candidates. You know the names from this season, but they’re certain to be even bigger names next season. Derrick Walton Jr., Michigan. Two names for you: Darius Morris and Trey Burke. Those are John Beilein’s previous two point guards, and both made gigantic strides as a sophomore. Walton Jr. isn’t going to win National Player of the Year, as Burke did, but he’s a do-it-all guard who will continue the recent
