Michigan basketball position-by-position breakdown

If Beilein wants to turn his team from small to big very quickly, he inserts McGary into the forward role alongside Morgan, which he has at times already this season. Having a 6-foot-10 power forward is an interesting lineup maneuver that Beilein could look into against certain, bigger teams down the road.

The other variable among the bigs is Jon Horford, the talented redshirt sophomore who is coming off an injury-shortened 2011-12 season because of a stress fracture in his foot. Horford and McGary could play together, or Horford and Morgan could play together, to create another two-big lineup.

Point is, this roster could go big or small depending on the opposing team and Beilein’s mood, which should be exciting for anybody looking for points this season at the Crisler Center.
