Michigan heads to Spain on Friday for a 10-day trip through Madrid and Barcelona that will feature three exhibition games.
The Wolverines will play a makeshift group of local talents outside of Madrid and two professional teams outside of Barcelona — a highly regarded Serbian squad (KK Mega Bemax) and a top-flight Spanish team (Jovenut Badalona) — during their trip overseas.
These three games should give us our first glimpse of what the 2018-19 squad will look like. Michigan won’t prove anything in Spain, the trip to Italy four years ago should serve as a reminder of that, but we can start to decipher how things might play out early in the season. Here are five questions to keep an eye on as the Wolverines head overseas.
