The 6-8 forward has finished in double figures in every game this season, averaging 16.6 points and 6.9 rebounds across 18 matchups.

Jon Teske had 15 points (6-12 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-4 FT), five rebounds, two blocks and a steal in 24 minutes Sunday against Michigan State. Teske has been rock solid for the Wolverines of late, but it wasn't enough to overcome a dominant effort by the Spartans. He's averaging 18.3 points to go along with 6.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks over the last three games, and he's also shooting 65.7 percent from the field. The senior center will aim to lead a bounce-back effort Thursday against Purdue.
