Senior forward Will Lockwood decided on returning his senior year after weeks of deliberation.

The decision didn’t come easy; it never seems to. But with Lockwood especially, a lot of things came into play. The Wolverines had come into last season with high expectations, coming off a Frozen Four run, and looked to continue that success. However, a 13-16-7 record brought them back to reality and a loss to Minnesota in the Big Ten Tournament ended any hope of extending the season.

Former Michigan forward Kyle Connor has recently been practicing at Yost Ice Arena and giving advice to Michigan players.

But as practice began this week, and even before that, a different colored helmet could be spotted — a player donning a white helmet in a white jersey — shooting pucks hours after practice had concluded and all the players trickled off ice to the locker room. It was Kyle Connor.

Michigan volleyball coach Mark Rosen was at the helm of the 2019 Big Ten Volleyball Foreign Team this past June..

Twenty hours before the plane containing delegates representing 11 different Big Ten volleyball teams touched down on foreign soil, all the players met up for a brief practice in Chicago.

There, they spent 45 minutes familiarizing themselves with one another before flying to Japan on June 14 for two weeks for the 2019 Big Ten Volleyball Foreign Tour.

As night fell, the players and staff made their way to the airport. They trudged through the terminals together before taking off, concluding their brief introduction.

The selection show was projected on a screen for all gathered around to see. Upon seeing their school name put into a bracket slot, the Michigan baseball players erupted in a cheer.

Some jumped to their feet in joy while others looked around for recipients to their high-fives, because the Wolverines were one of the last four teams into the NCAA Tournament after a turbulent end to their season jeopardized their spot. Though a long shot, it was a chance for a shot at the title, and a chance was all they needed.

The Michigan rowing team's 1V8 boat sprinted towards the end for a photo finish win.

The game plan for Michigan was to stay composed and stay true to itself, the first 1,500. Don’t let the other team’s boat affect you, and don’t let up. And if that holds up, see where the other boat is and respond accordingly. Only, when the Wolverines looked over to Yale’s line at the last 500 meters, they knew they needed more than just composure to win.

Coach Mel Pearson and the hockey team will look to secure a home ice advantage this weekend for the Big Ten Tournament.

In the previous series in November, it was Wisconsin’s freshmen who made the difference, scoring all three of its goals in the series. Despite the impact, their inexperience showed as well, committing late-game penalties that jeopardized the result of the match.

This weekend, Pearson expects an entirely different team — for both sides.

Junior forward Will Lockwood committed a costly penalty in double overtime against Ohio State, and was forced to watch Michigan's loss from the tunnel.

Instead of being on the ice, Lockwood stood. And he watched. And he waited for the result of his absence to unravel. Two minutes later, with a Jobst goal, it did.
