stanford%20cardinals%20logo[1]Michigan is headed back to New York City in 2013-14 to play Stanford at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein first reported the game and the Michigan Athletic Department confirmed the report.

Stanford went 19-15 last season, losing to Alabama in the NIT, and finished 9-9 in Pac 12 play. Stanford returns the majority of its firepower from last season including Dwight Powell, Chasson Randle, Josh Huestis, Aaron Bright and John Gage.

The Wolverines beat West Virginia at the Barlcays Center last season in the Brooklyn Hoops Winter Festival.

Michigan is also scheduled to face Arizona and Iowa State next year along with a trip to the Puerto Rico Tip Off featuring Auburn, Charlotte, Florida State, Georgetown, Kansas State, Long Beach State and VCU. The Wolverines are also likely to go on the road for the Big Ten-ACC Challenge. A full rundown of future scheduling dates can be found here.

  • Michigan already has what is likely to be 6 games against HMs… Only played five this year in the non-conf. Wonder if we’ll see anymore.

    Shouldn’t we actually be getting a home game in the ACC Challenge? We played at Clemson (2010) and at Virginia (2011) so it stands to reason we should have back-to-back home games coming our way. I would love it if UNC visited.

    • Unlikely. They basically started over with the addition of Nebraska I believe.. then started rotating. Not sure how they plan to handle the changes upcoming.

        I tend to agree. If I had to venture a guess, I would say At UNC, but who knows.

    Seems like a pretty good schedule being generated. Any ideas on the dates of the Puerto Rico tip off classic?

    • Should be the weekend before Thanksgiving (Nov 21, 22, 24) but that’s unconfirmed and only based on previous years.

    nice ill be heading to BARCLAYS CENTER again to support the Wolverines…had a blast last year when they played WV…Stanford will be a good game

    I like that Michigan continues to be a presence in the NYC area. They’ll be ready for whenever the Next Great NYC PG comes along.

      I’m glad Michigan plays in Columbus every year.

  • Kenny

    Wonderful, it would well be my son and daughter’s first Michigan basketball game.

    OT: Blake McLimans is playing at Miami Ohio next year?

    • gobluemd16

      Yup, saw that on Matt Vogrich’s twitter

    • Cary Bear

      Vogrich, too, I think.

      • jemblue

        Vogrich is out of eligibility. McLimans on the other hand will be a 5th-year senior next year.
