Game 4: Michigan vs. Memphis Recap

imageimageimage

John Beilein described today’s game as a measuring stick and his team answered the challenge. Michigan is clearly ready for its next test.

The game was played at a pace suitable for Memphis, 70 possessions, but the result went with the Wolverines, 73-61.

All 2011 Maui Invitational Coverage

Internet streams, Division II opponents, student announcers and sleepy 8:30 tip offs are in the past. The 2011-12 Michigan basketball season kicks into full gear this afternoon as Michigan faces off against Memphis to open the Maui Invitational.
