The University of Michigan men’s basketball team has drawn UConn for its opening round game of the Battle 4 Atlantis, as announced by ESPN today.
“As we do every year, we have another very difficult non-conference schedule,” said U-M head coach John Beilein.
In his most recent season, Wagner averaged 16.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.7 steals for ALBA Berlin.
ESPN analyst Chad Ford predicted LeVert would be taken late in the first round if he did declare for the draft.
“I knew going in this was 50-50,” Beilein said on a teleconference Sunday night. “Sometimes you don’t get that selection.”
Two seasons ago, the Wolverines played for the national championship. This season, it would be a miracle if they made the tournament.
With better transition defense, Michigan might have defeated Michigan State on Sunday, Wolverines head coach John Beilein said Tuesday.
Zak Irvin had 14 points and 12 rebounds and Michigan rode a strong second-half start to a 58-44 victory over Nebraska on Tuesday.
Caris LeVert scored 14 points and Zak Irvin had 11 for the Wolverines (10-7, 3-2), who had a two-game winning streak end.
“It was a real wake-up call,” junior guard Caris LeVert said Monday. “We’ve really gotten better because of those games.”
