Forward Franz Wagner announced that he will be joining the Wolverines this upcoming fall. It is Michigan coach Juwan Howard's second commitment during his tenure.

Guard Franz Wagner will be joining the University of Michigan starting this upcoming year. The 17-year-old was on a dual-contract with Alba Berlin and SSV lok Bernau Alba this past year, deciding between staying overseas and coming to play in the NCAA.

Michigan coach Juwan Howard had his introductory press conference on Thursday at the Crisler Center.

When Jimmy King came home from high school practice as a highly-touted recruit, he wasn’t just greeted by his mother but often another call from Juwan Howard.

Juwan Howard will be the 17th coach in Michigan men's basketball history

The Michigan basketball program is entering a new era by harkening back to an old one.

Former Michigan coach John Beilein had his introductory press conference with the Cavaliers Tuesday.

Though his new role as head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers may garner him an “Ohio man” by some, Beilein spoke candidly about his 12 years in Ann Arbor and the impact the support of the students had on his time with the program. For Beilein, the admiration between himself and the students was mutual.

With John Beilein gone, former 2019 Michigan signee Jalen Wilson has decided to reconsider his options for the future.

Just three days after John Beilein accepted the Cleveland Cavaliers’ head coaching post, Michigan’s top-ranked signee has re-opened his recruitment.

John Beilein leaves Michigan as the all-time winningest coach with 278 wins.

There was a moment — with Moe Wagner marauding his way through the defense and galavanting around the court — when John Beilein stood on the brink of immortality. It was the first television timeout, and the team donning maize was starting to believe.

Beilein's departure leaves a short window for athletic director Warde Manuel to fill the vacancy.

ROSEMONT, Ill. — At 8:15 this morning, Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel was surprised — along with the rest of the country — to find out that Michigan coach John Beilein would be leaving the program after 12 years to coach the Cleveland Cavaliers.  

Redshirt sophomore Austin Davis grew up in one-stoplight Onsted before coming to play basketball for Michigan in Ann Arbor.

The village of Onsted does not have a lot.

But it does have a stoplight, and John Beilein knows all about it.


An early stretch of dominance was all Michigan needed, as it ran away with a 76-57 win over the 19th-ranked Boilermakers.
