Though he's working with a small sample, Michigan coach John Beilein has been impressed with the point guard play. Trying to fill the gaping hole left by Darius Morris' off-season departure, Beilein is studying point guards Trey Burke, a freshman, and senior Stu Douglass, who has made himself into a point guard with his versatility.
BEST OF MAXIM
“I am excited about this new opportunity at Michigan, I wouldn’t go there if I didn’t think they could win a national championship.”
That was John Beilein in 2007 on the day he accepted the Michigan job. It sounded optimistic at best for a program that hadn’t made the tournament in nearly a decade and a coach whose reputation was built on Cinderella runs more than conference...
Notes and observations from Michigan Basketball’s scrimmage with Wayne State. The Wolverines pulled out a 47-39 victory and the game was as out of sync as the score indicates. Only 4 Michigan players scored and they turned the ball over 14 times. Stu Douglass attributed Michigan’s clunky play to the team learning new roles and experimenting with different line ups. Tim Hardaway...

Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. both met with the media after Michigan’s 47-39 exhibition win over Wayne State.
You can find Hardaway’s interview after the jump.
The Michigan basketball team met with the media this afternoon to discuss their first exhibition game against Wayne State on Friday at 7 p.m. Hardaway, Novak and Morgan were all available, the later two which you can find after the jump.
Even film cannot do Jeremy Gallon justice. The Michigan sophomore receiver is listed at 5-feet-8, so the last pass one expects he could handle would be a jump ball. Yet there he is, reaching above the cornerbacks to snag one of those passes.
The No. 2 Nebraska Volleyball team (19-2, 12-1) fought back from one set down to overcome the No. 23 Michigan Wolverines 3-1 (17-25, 26-24, 25-20, 25-21) Friday night. The Huskers were led by a rock solid performance from Brigette Root in her first career start at setter.
Congrats to Mitch McGary (@MitchMcGary33) on committing to the Michigan Wolverines. UM picks up a good one and a future star. More than likely Duke will now focus their efforts solely on Tony Parker. Mitch chose the Wolverines with Florida and Duke in the mix, in the end he chose to stay close to home and listen to his AAU coach, can’t blame him for that. Best of luck Mitch!
