2019-20 Season

Early season a chance to hone shot selection, ball movement

When Michigan takes the floor against Appalachian State on Tuesday night, it will merely continue the process of learning who it is.

Juwan Howard learning how to handle in-game college basketball coaching decisions for the first time. Michigan’s players learning how to wed prior habits with new expectations. Everyone learning to coexist in a new environment.

The team that for 12 years hammered home the same pillars about offensive basketball — playing deliberately, seeking the best shot, shirking offensive rebounds for transition defense and treating turnovers like a sin — is now learning to recalibrate. That will come with inevitable hitches.
