The Big Ten announced the conference single and double-play matchups for the 2021-22 season today.

Michigan will play Michigan State, Illinois, Iowa, Ohio State, Purdue, Rutgers and Nebraska twice. They’ll only host Maryland, Minnesota and Northwestern and only play Indiana, Penn State and Wisconsin on the road. Here’s the release:

For a fourth straight season, the Big Ten will feature a 20-game slate, including two early conference games — one home, one away — played around the Big Ten football championship weekend, Dec. 3-5. The remaining 18-game schedule will begin after the new year.

Continuing with its protected rivalry game, U-M will play a home-and-home against intrastate rival Michigan State. Additional home-and-home series for the Wolverines include Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Ohio State, Purdue and Rutgers.

The Wolverines will host Maryland, Minnesota and Northwestern in single games at Crisler Center, while playing at Indiana, at Penn State and at Wisconsin in the three designated road games.

The Big Ten Tournament will be held in Indianapolis, Ind., at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Wednesday through Sunday, March 9-13. The NCAA Final Four is scheduled for the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, La.

The Wolverines are also scheduled to host Kentucky and travel to UCF. They’ll participate in the MGM Main Event in Las Vegas which also features Wichita State, Arizona and UNLV with games played on November 19th and 21st.

    I thought that they got plenty of quality looks at the basket down the stretch against UCLA, and notably that includes their last 2 or 3 shots – the last-second stuff people often look at to evaluate a coach. They kept their composure and ran plays and took shots they normally make, even that desperation heave. When good shooters get open looks that just don’t go down, that’s not coaching. That’s just how the game goes sometimes.
