    At this point, comparing the two is unfair to Irvin.

    Michigan last left the country prior to the 2010-11 season, and they’ll do so again in 2014-15.

  10. Michigan keeps exceeding expectations during another tournament run

    Mar 28, 2014, 11:26 PM EDT

    Tennessee v Michigan

    Many didn’t expect Michigan to bounce back the way they have after the loss of Mitch McGary. Now the Wolverines are on the cusp of another Final Four berth behind a balanced offensive attack and the outstanding tournament play of senior Jordan Morgan.

    Michigan’s late-game execution helped defeat an Illinois rally, but should we be concerned about the Wolverines’ inability to defend?

  12. Michigan uses big second half to take first place in Big Ten over rival Michigan State

    Feb 23, 2014, 2:25 PM EDT

    Nik Stauskas

    With time winding down in the first half, Caris LeVert launched a 3-pointer from the corner and drained it as the buzzer sounded. As soon as he released it, LeVert turned and darted to the Michigan locker room. He knew it was good, cutting the halftime lead 36-34. LeVert scored 14 of his 23 points…

  13. Delon Wright a notable Cousy snub

    Feb 18, 2014, 6:00 PM EDT

    Larry Krystkowiak

    It has become vogue to criticize selections to both the Wooden and Cousy awards; the John R. specifically drew the ire nationally when its midseason list was unveiled and a few names, including Kansas’ Joel Embiid and Michigan’s Nik Stauskas, were omitted (though both can still be included amongst the finalists). One player, though, that…

  14. Wisconsin tops Michigan on the road 75-62, fourth straight win

    Feb 16, 2014, 3:32 PM EDT

    John Beilein

    On Jan. 18, Nik Stauskas scored 23 points Michigan’s 77-70 win over then-No. 3 Wisconsin inside the Kohl Center. That was at the point of the season where both teams were going in opposite directions. The Wolverines had won seven straight, a streak that would reach 10 games. Wisconsin, on the other hand, had dropped…

    Feb 4, 2014, 12:26 PM EDT

    St. Johns v Creighton

    1. Doug McDermott, Creighton: Last week, I wrote that McDermott was the runaway favorite to for National Player of the Year. I think everyone pretty much agreed with me at the time. He’s played one game since then, against St. John’s, scoring 39 of Creighton’s 63 points and burying the game-winning three at the buzzer.…

  16. Yogi Ferrell, Indiana shut down Nik Stauskas, upset No. 10 Michigan

    Feb 2, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Nik Stauskas, Yogi Ferrell

    For more than a month now, Big Ten teams have been searching for an answer to slow down Nik Stauskas. Tom Crean discovered the answer: Yogi Ferrell. The 5-foot-11 Indiana point guard gave No. 10 Michigan’s superstar fits, holding him to six points on 1-for-6 shooting as the Hoosiers knocked off the Wolverines in Bloomington…

  17. Balanced attack leads No. 10 Michigan past Purdue

    morgan

    Without Mitch McGary, the production of veteran big men Jon Horford and Jordan Morgan has become even more important for No. 10 Michigan. While neither needs to turn into a player who will post 20 points and ten rebounds on a nightly basis, as the Wolverines have other players more capable of scoring, they do…

  18. College Basketball Player of the Year Power Rankings

    Jan 28, 2014, 12:05 PM EDT

    Doug McDermott

    1. Doug McDermott, Creighton: Since 1997-1998, no college basketball player has averaged 24.5 points, 7.2 boards and shot 43.0% from beyond the arc. In NBA history, no player that has shot more than 15 threes in a season has averaged 24.5 points, 7.0 boards and shot 43.0% from three. Right now, McDermott is averaging 24.3…

  19. College Basketball Week in Review: Bryce Cotton’s a star, Texas and Michigan surge

    Jan 27, 2014, 12:21 PM EDT

    Bryce Cotton

    PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Bryce Cotton, Providence Bryce Cotton has been a really good player for the Friars for a long time, but since Providence has spent the entirety of his tenure on campus mired in national irrelevance, he hasn’t gotten near the amount of attention that he deserves. This week that changed. Cotton averaged 21.5…

  20. No. 21 Michigan uses late surge to beat No. 3 Michigan State

    Jan 25, 2014, 9:41 PM EDT

    walton

    During the last few days much had been made about the omission of Michigan guard Nik Stauskas from both the Wooden and Robertson award lists. Having raised his scoring average by some seven-plus points per game from last season, Stauskas has been the answer to who will grab the reins for the Wolverines offensively. That…

  21. Nik Stauskas apologizes for, clarifies father’s early-entry comments

    Jan 23, 2014, 1:16 PM EDT

    If I put together mock drafts, I would, at this point, have Nik Stauskas projected as a lottery pick. He’s 6-foot-6, he’s athletic, he’s a lights-out shooter, he can handle the ball in the pick-and-roll, he can create off the dribble for his teammates, he can break your ankles with a cross over and go…

  22. No. 21 Michigan a legitimate Big Ten title contender after beating No. 10 Iowa

    Jan 22, 2014, 9:30 PM EDT

    Iowa v Michigan

It’s the eighth straight win for the Wolverines. The last…

    Jan 20, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    Oklahoma State v Kansas

    PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Joel Embiid, Kansas Joel Embiid is doing his best to mimic the growth of Anthony Davis back in 2012. Davis was a no-name on the AAU circuit heading into the summer after his junior season, but he shot up the rankings, becoming the top player in the class. And as he…

    You know this win felt good for Michigan. The last time they were in this building, the then-No. 3 Wolverines thought that they had landed their first win over Wisconsin in the Kohl Center since 1999 as they watched Ben Brust’s halfcourt heave soar in and force overtime. The Wolverines would lose in the extra…

    Michigan picked up its 10th win of the season, and improved to 2-0 in the Big Ten Conference on Sunday afternoon with a 74-51 win over Northwestern at home. The first half was relatively close with the Wolverines heading into the break with a 31-24 led. The Wildcats got 13 of their 24 points from…
