If it seems like you were a kid the last time the Michigan basketball team made it to the NCAA Tournament – well, you’re right. They haven’t gone dancing since 1998.

In this year’s edition of Tipoff, we will detail the careers of seniors Courtney Sims and Dion Harris and examine the source of their inconsistency. You can also read about captain Lester Abram’s battle with injuries the past two seasons.
And in a year in which the Big Ten looks unpredictable, we offer our insights into what teams will separate themselves from the rest. We hope you enjoy our coverage during the 2006-07 season.
