The Michigan basketball team appears to have filled two vacant assistant coaching positions this past week — and both hires are from the same school.
As first reported by Josh Henschke of The Michigan Insider and Brendan Quinn of The Athletic, Luke Yaklich and Deandre Haynes will both be making the move to Michigan from Illinois State. They are set to replace Billy Donlon and Jeff Meyer, who departed the program this offseason for jobs at Northwestern and Butler, respectively. The school has yet to confirm either hire.
Forwards Alex Roos and Luke Morgan will transfer into the program from Colorado College and Lake Superior State, respectively. Forward Jack Becker signed his letter of intent after three years with the Sioux Falls Stampede of the United States Hockey League.
One week ago yesterday, the Michigan softball team bowed out to Michigan State in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Tournament. Today, it will play No. 6 Washington in hopes of moving one large step closer to a Super Regional bid.
Friday night, the Wolverines dispatched Fresno State behind a 13-strikeout performance from senior right-hander Megan Betsa.
Junior right-fielder Aidan Falk broke a 1-1 tie in the bottom of the fifth inning, with a two-out, two- strike, two-run single down the right field line, grabbing Michigan a lead it would keep.
