John Beilein takes in Michigan’s win over Notre Dame
- Joe spoke with Glenn Robinson III last night and he reported that Michigan is still his leader and he had a great time at the UConn game on his unofficial visit. Beilein was also expected in to watch Robinson play in open gym. Robinson has been up to Michigan three times this summer (Elite Camp, August, and the UConn game) and the mutual interest is obvious. Robinson most recently picked up a Colorado offer while Xavier, Wisconsin, Purdue, and Butler are all interested.
- Schedule updates: Michigan will play Saginaw Valley State in their exhibition game on Friday, Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. (BTN.com). The Dec. 23rd game versus Bryant has also been moved til 6pm (BTN).
- A pair of former Wolverines were named Big Ten Icons in the BTN’s latest rankings: Glen Rice at 27 and Cazzie Russell at 29.
- Michigan is not in Gary Harris’ top five ($).
- Avon, IN big man Austin Burgett verbally committed to Notre Dame.
- This is old news by now but Tennessee self imposed sanctions on their basketball program after Bruce Pearl was found placing impermissible phone calls. Anyone that follows basketball recruiting shouldn’t be surprised by this.
- 2013 Indiana guard Zavier Turner is planning to visit Michigan on September 25th.
