John Beilein, Nik Stauskas and Eso Akunne met with the media on Wednesday morning to discuss Michigan’s Big Ten opener at Northwestern (Thursday, 7 p.m.). Beilein focused on the difficulty of guarding Northwestern’s offense while Stauskas made several bold statements about his three point shooting ability and how it stacks up nationally. Beilein provided a brief update on Tim Hardaway Jr. (ankle), who remains questionable for Thursday’s game. Hardaway participated in some light drills but needs “just enough rest” to prevent the injury from lingering.
