Monday afternoon, Patterson announced his intent to transfer to Michigan from Ole Miss, capping off a recruitment that only came to light recently.
Michigan experienced trouble in road games last season, but it’s a different team now, and the Wolverines have to prove once again that they can contend with good teams away from Crisler Center.
Outside of the coaching staff, it’s rare to see any Wolverine standing, clapping or doing anything else other than sitting when it comes to the bench itself.
All in all, Shea Patterson had himself a Saturday. Maybe he’ll have a few more of them here, too.
By the end of the day, Michigan recovered from a first-quarter deficit to notch a 54-41 victory over the Golden Flashes.
This time, the Michigan defensive front wasn’t the problem – as it has been in recent weeks – but rather, the transitionary game was.
Michigan looked dominant from start to finish as the Wolverines shut out the Beavers, 48-0.
Saturday, the Wolverines commenced play at Cliff Keen Arena, where the Maize team defeated the Blue team, 399.35 to 388.35.
Michigan used a late run led by junior forward Moritz Wagner and sophomore guard Zavier Simpson to push the game into overtime, where the Wolverines flew past the Bruins to win, 78-69.
Brian Smith will leave the Michigan football program after two seasons to serve as the defensive coordinator at Rice.
