On the eve of the Michigan basketball team’s battle with No. 10 Michigan State, Michigan basketball coach John Beilein, junior guard Derrick Walton Jr and junior forward Mark Donnal addressed the media.
John Beilein was naturally frustrated with his team’s performance as the Wolverines dropped to 7-3 in the Big Ten with a double-digit home loss to Indiana. The Wolverines started strong but watched the wheels fall off late in the first half as Indiana unleashed a 25-0 run.
Michigan head coach John Beilein was pleased with his team’s effort in their fourth straight conference victory that required some clutch performances down the stretch. The Wolverine head coach also admitted that he’d say there’s a chance that star guard Caris LeVert returns this week, when the Wolverines host Indiana and Michigan State.
Following the Michigan basketball team’s 68-57 win over Rutgers, Michigan coach John Beilein spoke with the media about losing his gameplan notes just before tipoff, surviving a trap game, the contributions of Aubrey Dawkins and Ricky Doyle off the bench and more.
John Beilein spoke about not taking the Scarlet Knights (0-8, 6-13) lightly, senior guard Caris LeVert’s eventual return and the rest of the team’s development. Junior forward Zak Irvin, sophomore guard Aubrey Dawkins and junior guard Derrick Walton Jr. discussed Irvin’s development, filling in for LeVert and rebounding intensity.
Speaking to the media to discuss the Michigan basketball team’s upcoming game against Minnesota, Michigan coach John Beilein said he is “encouraged” by LeVert’s progress, as the senior has begun to do light shooting and drills in practice.
