"Oh, Canada!"

Big-time shooters don't let the environment bother them, and Michigan's Nik Stauskas showed that he has the ability to silence a crowd on Tuesday night.

The Illinois student section chanted "USA" at the Wolverines star, who hails from Canada. With the first half winding down and the students making noise, Stauskas drilled a long-range three-pointer to give his team a 22-point lead at the break.

The sophomore made seven of his nine three-pointers on the night as Michigan routed Illinois to clinch the Big Ten title.
