The UMHoops Podcast is back, and not a moment too soon before Michigan plays its biggest game of this young season. The Wolverines are going against Duke at Cameron Indoor on Tuesday night, and Dave Merritt and I thought this would be a good time to reunite and talk some hoops. We were joined by former Michigan player Anthony Wright, followed by Laura Keeley from the Raleigh News & Observer.
- We kick things off with Anthony Wright, who played at Michigan from 2006 through 2010. You may remember Wright from his 14-point performance against Oklahoma in the 2009 NCAA tournament, when Manny Harris was sidelined for much of the game due to foul trouble. Wright visited with us to talk about Michigan’s season thus far and what he expects from the team against Duke
- Later, Laura Keeley joins us to provide the Duke perspective on Tuesday’s matchup. We recap Duke’s close loss against Arizona in the Preseason NIT on Friday and Keeley tells us what makes Jabari Parker so unique. We then delve into how the Blue Devils match up with the Wolverines and take a look at what needs to happen in order for Michigan to pull off the upset in Durham.
- The close things out Dave and I go in-depth, discussing Michigan’s lineup issues. Can Glenn Robinson III fulfill his potential if he spends most of the season at the four? Where is Mitch McGary better suited? We address these questions and more.
