In this installment of our Michigan Basketball season preview, we break down the Wolverines schedule and offer our game-by-game predictions. Previous installments in the Michigan Basketball preview series include; the roster breakdown and a general overview of the team.
The schedule is loaded with great match ups. In just their third game of the season, the Wolverines will travel to Big 12 country to play at Iowa State. Then they head out to Puerto Rico to play in a deep tournament. Michigan will play two Final Four favorites during the non-conference portion of their schedule when they head to Duke and host Arizona. Another common Final Four pre-season darling, Michigan State, appears on the Wolverines schedule twice.
This is what Joe and I are predicting for the Wolverines this year
Rob: 27-6 (14-4)
