John Beilein, Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Mitch McGary were all on the podium on Thursday afternoon to preview Michigan’s matchup with Kansas on Friday evening. Read comments from all four below.
COACH BEILEIN: Obviously we’re thrilled to be in this situation right now with 16 teams still vying for a National Championship. Our team is excited about this opportunity, just walking out on that court in this venue.
The University of Michigan, we’re very proud to represent the University of Michigan, and I think the university is very proud of these young men, what they’ve accomplished thus far this year. We have a difficult challenge with Kansas. Bill Self’s teams are fundamentally sound offensively and defensively they’re as good as we’ve played all year long, and we’ve played against some good defensive teams.
We have challenges in front of us. We have to grow very quickly, and we have, particularly over the last month through both the ups and the downs, I’ve seen consider...

Michigan found themselves down 10 to the Kansas Jayhawks with 2:30 seconds, but the Wolverines went on a huge run run which was capped off with Trey Burkes 30FT heave with 4.2 seconds left: Burke had zero points at the half, and finished the second with 18.
John Beilein returned to the locker room after his press conference to answer some additional questions about Michigan’s thrilling win over Kansas. Watch the coach in the embedded media player below:
In case you didn't know--Michigan's Trey Burke has got game.
That doesn't do the man justice--Trey Burke has got some crazy, whack, mad serious game (that sounded cooler in my head, but you get the idea, right? The man is something else!).
He has proved it all season long playing well enough for many to call him the front runner for player of the year in Division...
Trey Burke scored all 23 of his points after halftime, including a long, tying 3-pointer in the final seconds of regulation, and Michigan rallied to beat Kansas 87-85 in the South Regional semifinals Friday night.
The fourth-seeded Wolverines wiped out a 10-point Kansas lead in the last 3 minutes of regulation, and Burke gave them their first lead since early in the game with another...
John Beilein has come up with a unique solution to prepare Michigan for the challenges of playing in Cowboys Stadium.
He's not going to do it.
After Michigan's open practice in the NFL's gaudiest stadium, Beilein was happy enough with what he saw to just let the matter rest .
"I don't think we need to address it at all," he said. "We had a practice...
Trey Burke and the Michigan Men's Basketball team are moving on to the Elite 8 for the first time since 1994. I can't actually talk about this yet without my heart still racing or without me getting emotional. Yes, I'm that girl.I was out for happy hour with my friend David & we watched the Michigan/Kansas basketball game in a bar where I'm confident I was the...
Trey Burke, the nation's best point guard, was unconscious in the 2nd half and overtime. 23 points. All in that span.
Mitch McGary was great, too, finishing with 25 points and 14 rebounds.
Michigan will play the winner of the Florida in-state rivalry game in the Elite Eight on Sunday.
UPDATE: Michigan will play Florida at 2:20pm ET. The game...
Michigan's Mitch McGary took a cheap shot to the family jewels, courtesy of Kansas' Elijah Johnson during their Sweet 16 battle.
John Beilein, Trey Burke, Mitch McGary and Tim Hardaway Jr. were on the podium after Michigan’s win over Kansas. Watch the press conference in the embedded media player below.

In November, Mitch McGary was just the sideshow to Michigan's freshman circus. Nik Stauskas was hitting 3-pointers from all over Washtenaw County and Glenn Robinson III was making highlight shows from coast to coast with his spectacular dunks.
McGary? He would make a few cameo appearances as Jordan Morgan's backup. The crowd loved him, because while he might drop the ball...
Michigan center Mitch McGary has made a positive impact for the Michigan basketball team during the Wolverines run to the Sweet 16. He's also made a few fans along the way.
Michigan football defensive coordinator, Greg Mattison, has taken notice and likes what he sees in McGary. He likes him so much that he says he would like to see him at defensive end on the football team...
I think the only thing under debate is whether Kansas’ Elijah Johnson tried to punch or grab Michigan’s Mitch McGary privates? Johnson was called for a flagrant foul.
The play happened in the opening minutes of the Michigan/Kansas matchup in the Sweet 16. The winner will advance to the Elite 8 and take on the winner of the highly anticipated Florida Gulf Coast vs Florida...
The Sweet Sixteen was awesome. Another great two days of college basketball. We saw Trey Burke lead Michigan to an unbelievable comeback win against Kansas. We saw Aaron Craft and Ohio State on the brink of elimination again, but nonetheless prevail, and we even saw Syracuse’s zone stifle arguably the most potent offense in college basketball. But all those games are over, and...
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Michigan coach John Beilein briefly lost track of how long it's been since the Wolverines reached the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament.
Sixteen years, he said. No, 18. Wait. 19.
He was right the third time, but here's how to make it a little simpler. The Fab Five era of the early 1990s was the last time the No. 4 seed Wolverines (28-7) made it this...
1. Trey Burke (Michigan)- Everyone thought that VCU’s pressure would have slowed Burke down but all he did was score 18 points and dish out 7 assists.
2. Deshaun Thomas (Ohio State)- Thomas is a flat out scorer, in his first 2 NCAA tournament games he is averaging 23 ppg.
3. Shane Larkin (Miami)- With the Canes down late to Illinois, Larkin hit a clutch three and then he lead Miami...
