Whether it was because of the atmosphere — a sea of white packed inside the KFC Yum! Center — the pressure that accompanied their newly-acquired No. 4 ranking or simply the length and activity of Louisville’s defense, the Wolverines just couldn’t buy a basket. After going 2-for-18 from the field in the opening 12 minutes, the Michigan men’s basketball team trailed, 18-5. In enemy territory, playing the top-ranked team in the country, the No. 4 Wolverines (7-1) couldn’t overcome their slow start, dropping their first game of the season, 58-43, to the the No. 1 Cardinals (8-0).

If there’s been one common denominator between all of these games though, it’s the location. Michigan has yet to play outside the confines of Crisler Center. That all changes on Wednesday, when the Wolverines tip off against Iowa State in the first-round of the Battle 4 Atlantis in Nassau, Bahamas.

Sometimes an early-season, tune-up game between a visiting mid-major and a Power Five program ends up being much closer than anyone predicted. This was not one of those games. 

Right from the jump, the Michigan men’s basketball team (4-0) controlled an outmatched Houston Baptist (0-4) in dominant fashion, en route to a 111-68 victory.

Senior center Jon Teske has felt the effect of Michigan's faster pace of play recently.

Jon Teske is a busy man these days. 

As the starting center for the Michigan men’s basketball team, Teske has done it all so far this season. Through three games, the 7-foot-1, 265-pounder has played 93 minutes and averaged 16.7 points, nine rebounds, 2.7 blocks and shot 55.9 percent from the field. 

Teske has developed from only playing 61 minutes as a sophomore into one of the Wolverines’ most reliable players and one of the best bigs in the conference.

By tipoff, DeJulius settles in on the bench with nine other Wolverines –– eagerly waiting for his number to be called. And, while he’s not a starter for the Michigan men’s basketball team, so far this season, he hasn’t had to wait too long.

The Michigan basketball team saw its leadership take charge during the second-half collapse.

In the face of the offensive collapse and the surging Mountaineers, the message inside the Michigan men's basketball team's huddle was simple: composure.

The utter delirium that characterized the first twenty minutes of Michigan coach Juwan Howard’s inaugural game eventually gave way to frustration and concern in the second half as a slew of turnovers and missed shots almost cost the Wolverines the game. Ultimately, Michigan overcame its near collapse, winning 79-71 against the Mountaineers (0-1) in a hard-fought, yet thoroughly unconvincing opener.
