    Michigan State isn’t the only team in the state that’s currently banged up. Michigan is as well. Star center Mitch McGary is not yet healthy, according to John Beilein.

    NIT Season Tip-Off

    Preseason prognostication is, more or less, a guessing game. The picks that the so-called experts — myself included — make are educated and generally well-researched, but they’re still guess.

    DURHAM, N.C. — Caris LeVert is a good basketball player. In fact, I’d go as far as to say that there aren’t five players in college basketball that are more improved than No. 22 Michigan’s 6-foot-6 sophomore, and nothing about the 24 points he had against No. 10 Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium on Tuesday…
