Michigan in a game against Central Michigan at Crisler Monday.

Senior guard Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman led the team in minutes with 36, shots with 15 and points with 17, guiding the Wolverines to a 72-65 win over Central Michigan.

Fifth-year senior forward Duncan Robinson admitted Michigan has work to do in order to improve on the glass.

After a quick turnaround to face Central Michigan, Michigan can learn a lot about itself depending on how they improve down low, especially in the rebounding department.

Junior center Moritz Wagner acknowledged that Michigan still has a lot of room to grow this year.

The Wolverines simply didn’t look like a well-oiled machine Saturday night.


While Michigan eventually powered its way to a 87-67 win over North Florida, it wasn’t pretty, especially at the beginning of the contest.

Redshirt sophomore forward Charles Matthews is among a group of Michigan players waiting to prove themselves at the highest level.

Assistant coach Saddi Washington equated this year's team to a pot of gumbo. The ingredients are in the pot. Beilein is still the chef. Now let’s see if this gumbo will sizzle.

The Michigan men’s basketball team will seek to replace three starters from a squad that reached the Sweet 16.

As the Wolverines look to make another deep run in March, the Daily breaks down this year’s roster:

Michigan coach John Beilein’s team has to compete in a conference with four teams in the AP Top 25 poll.

The Wolverines are only one of many involved in the conference quagmire. The Daily breaks down the best of the Michigan’s competition this season:

Freshman guard Eli Brooks might be part of the second unit, but his shooting stroke should land him playing time.

Where will the bench scoring come from? The Michigan coaching staff believes Brooks can be an answer to that question.

Junior forward Charles Matthews could be a valuable asset in replacing Michigan's rebound production from last year.

One area of concern that has gotten little attention is the lack of proven rebounding ability Michigan returns this year.

Junior guard Charles Matthews looks to pass the ball to help Michigan defeat Grand Valley 82-50 in an exhibition game on Friday.

For most players on the court, the exhibition game was nothing more than a tune-up. But for Charles Matthews it was a major hurdle in his already topsy-turvy career, a chance he has been waiting for for nearly two years.
