What grade does Nik Stauskas' hot start warrant?

The 2013-14 Michigan basketball team is finding out what life in the spotlight is all about. High expectations have not been kind to the Wolverines in their opening six games. A stunning loss to Charlotte, one in which the Maize and Blue shot 31 percent from the field, and a road defeat against Iowa State have some questioning just how good head coach John Beilein's club really is.

Games against Duke, Arizona and Stanford in December will give everyone a much better indication as to where Michigan stands among some of the top teams in college basketball.

With a tune-up against Coppin State on tap to close out the opening month of the campaign, it is a perfect time to take a look back rather than ahead. Grading the starters is a good way to assess what has gone wrong and where the Wolverines need to get better.

 

Note: A "C" is considered an average grade. All grades are relative to expectations and production.
