OK, Big Ten Nation: If you could pick one player to take a last-second shot, who would it be? I polled seven Big Ten writers. And, here were their choices. Looks like the guy to pass to is ? Michigan?s Nik Stauskas.
Take a look at the results.
Ben Jones, StateCollege.com: Michigan?s Nik Stauskas
Dustin Dopirak, Bloomington Times Herald: I go with Nik Stauskas right now. Gary Harris my second choice.
Graham Couch, Lansing State Journal: I would take Appling with the ball on the drive, based on resume in such situations. Craft probably No. 2, but after that, a lot of good players in Big Ten, but not a ton proven yet in that moment.
Marcus Fuller, St. Paul Pioneer Press: Gary Harris
Marc Morehouse, Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sam Dekker
Marcus Jackson, Champaign News-Gazette: Nik Stauskas
Brendan Quinn, MLive.com: Tim Frazier
Who would be my choice? That?s easy, I?d get the ball to Stauskas, too. I?m no dummy. The guy is stone-cold deadly.
