Video: Nik Stauskas in 2011 Canadian Flight Games Dunk Contest

Dylan Burkhardt

Nik Stauskas put together an impressive July on the AAU circuit and wrapped it up with one final event last night, the 2011 Canadian Flight Games. Stauskas won MVP of the Canadian exhibition game, which featured a Canadian team against an American team from Buffalo, and he also won the three point contest. This footage is from the dunk contest, where Stauskas placed third:

Nik will be making an unofficial visit up to Michigan on August 1st as a thank you for all of the attention that the Michigan staff paid him on the recruiting trail this July.

    Stauskus has to be the most underrated prospect in the country. Frankly, the more film I watch, I just don’t see the lack of athleticism that the scouts see. He’s not an uber athlete by any means, but I think his athleticism is sufficient for B10 basketball, especially when you take into account his skill set at his size. Can’t wait for this guy to get on campus.

      I would say he has somewhat above average athleticism for a major conference player of his size (he looks at least 6’6″). Then you take into account that it appears he has decent all around game, and he should be a top 60 recruit, I think.

      I guess that the concern in his quickness on the defensive side, which we don’t see in highlight videos.

        Agree to a certain extent, but it’s not as if he’s checking PGs, he’ll probably defend the opposing 3 man. Don’t think it’s that big of a concern.

  • Dunk contest!! This is fun and great.
