“In the Big Ten, I don’t think there’s a team that’s full-court pressing 40 minutes,” U-M coach John Beilein said. “That can be a good thing. That can be a bad thing. We’ll see how we react.”
Detroit players give U-M a new life “I had scattered thoughts (when Beilein arrived), but once I learned what he was about, I definitely started believing,” Sims said. “The sky’s the limit, because we’re hungry.
