- No. 19 Michigan Wolverines
Michigan comes in at No. 19 in the Sporting News’ preseason top 25 rankings: “As reckless as it was for point guard Darius Morris to chuck his first-round potential by entering the 2011 NBA Draft, there didn’t seem to be many objections from the Wolverines. They believe they can survive without him, that the John Beilein system is effective enough and that there are enough good players to progress. Michigan has no singular player as capable of creating spectacular moments as Morris, but Beilein basketball always has been about making magic collectively.”
