    Oct 6, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    Recruiting the west coast has proven to be fruitful for the Michigan basketball program, as the Wolverines have received a second commitment from that part of the country in the last week. First there was four-star forward Kameron Chatman (Portland, Ore.), and on Sunday 6-foot-8 forward D.J. Wilson (Sacramento, Calif.) announced his decision to verbally…

    With Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. now in the NBA, the Michigan Wolverines have some needs to address in their quest to build on last season’s run to the national title game.

    Sep 6, 2013, 10:40 AM EDT


    Already holding verbal commitments from elite perimeter prospects Shaqquan Aaron and JaQuan Lyle, the Louisville Cardinals have been hard at work on the recruiting trail in search of front court reinforcements.

    Maurice Jones, Josh Huestis

    Just a few days into the fall semester last year, it was announced that USC point guard Maurice Jones was academically ineligible to play in 2012-13. Coming off of a season in which he averaged 13.0 points and 3.5 assists per game, Jones would have seen his role change some due to the addition of…

    Mar 31, 2013, 4:55 PM EDT


    There were a few things Florida needed to do to beat Michigan on Sunday to advance to the Final Four. The Gators needed to force Michigan into turning the ball over, thus allowing them to get out in transition and score points. The Gators needed to contain perimeter shooters that allow the Wolverines to get…

  8. For as good as the Big Ten was, Michigan is its last Final Four hopeful

    Mar 31, 2013, 10:02 AM EDT

    Michigan v Indiana

    For as dominant as the Big Ten appeared to be throughout the conference schedule, generous in giving us marquee matchups every week, how could we have ended up here on the verge of a Final Four that doesn’t include a single team from the conference? We began with the possibility of three or maybe even…

    Feb 9, 2013, 2:32 PM EDT

    Mitch McGary

    It might take some time for No. 3 Michigan to shake off its disappointing 65-62 loss to Wisconsin Saturday afternoon in Madison. After a rainbow three from Tim Hardaway, Jr. sailed through with 0:02 remaining, it looked all but over, until a half-court buzzer-beater from Ben Brust sent the game into overtime where the Wolverines…

    Feb 5, 2013, 11:33 PM EDT

    Tim Hardaway, Jr.

    Michigan junior Tim Hardaway, Jr. has spent much of the 2012-13 season proving that he has become more than just a three-point shooter in his third year in with the Wolverines. But on Tuesday night, he leaned on that three-point shot again and led No. 3 Michigan to a grueling 76-74 overtime win against No.…

    Jan 13, 2013, 3:46 PM EDT

    Deshaun Thomas

    When Trey Burke stepped up and hit a three-pointer on Michigan’s opening possession Sunday against Ohio State, it looked like the Wolverines were on the right track. Score early, score often, and get a win on the road. But things quickly went down hill from there. No. 15 Ohio State ripped off a furious 16-0…

  20. No. 2 Michigan uses 13 three-pointers to sink Northwestern

    Jan 5, 2013, 10:29 AM EDT

    Trey Burke

    It was former St. John’s star, NBA All-Star, and TV analyst Mark Jackson, currently coaching the Golden State Warriors, who famously said it most succinctly: “Hand down, man down.” If you don’t get a hand in a three-point shooter’s face defensively, the opponent is going to make a living from distance, and that’s what No. 2…

    Trey Burke block

    Michigan’s biggest concern coming into Saturday’s game against Arkansas centered around pressure. Would they be able to neutralize the effectiveness of the Razorback’s style of play by limiting turnovers and controlling the pace? Though they ran into some difficulties in the second half, the answer seemed to be “yes,” as a strong late push lifted…

    Nov 21, 2012, 11:55 PM EDT

    Tim Hardaway

    NEW YORK, N.Y.– It’s difficult to keep the No. 4 team in the nation on its heels for the first 31 minutes of a game. Pittsburgh did that. But there’s often a reason behind those polls and, in the final nine minutes of its 67-62 win over Pittsburgh at Madison Square Garden, Michigan showed why…
