Jason Whitlock Is Getting Crushed For His Moe Wagner Take

Jason Whitlock discusses Jim Harbaugh on Speak For Yourself.


Michigan star Moe Wagner has a very unique skill-set. FOX Sports 1's Jason Whitlock doesn't seem familiar with how John Beilein uses him.

Wagner is a true modern big man. At 6-foot-11, the big man can roll to the basket and is dangerous on second-chance opportunities.

He is also an elite three-point shooter for his size. Wagner is shooting a career-high 39.6-percent from deep this season.

Jason Whitlock hasn't been impressed with how Beilein uses Moe Wagner though.

Throughout much of the game, he has been furiously tweeting about how Wagner should set up in the low post. However, that is rarely a huge part of his game.

He definitely has people in his mentions correcting him. Whitlock must not be checking.

It doesn't really help that Wagner has been an absolute monster playing his game tonight. He was especially dynamic in the second half.

Wagner leads all scorers with 24 points. He knocked down a solid 3-of-7 shots from three, and is 10-for-16 from the field overall.

He also dominated on the boards, grabbing 15 rebounds. As a team, Michigan only has a four rebound edge on Loyola Chicago, so Wagner's effort was very much needed.

Also, not that John Beilein is above reproach, but the man is one of the best college basketball coaches in the country, and is heading for his second national championship game appearance in five years. He knows what he's doing with his players.
