2023-24 Season

With season fast approaching, Phil Martelli breaks down Michigan’s 2023-24 roster

Appearing on Tuesdays Defend the Block podcast, associate head coach Phil Martelli dished his thoughts on Michigans roster ahead of the 2023-24 season.

Martelli’s full quotes on each individual player are transcribed below.

Dug McDaniel: “I think that Duggy is more of a grown up. Physically, more of a grown up. His attention to practice, more of an older guy. I have noticed that he is more vocal during these workouts. At the same time, by not coasting, he’s improved all areas of his game. When you come in as a freshman, and maybe you come in with the mindset that ‘I’m a backup,’ and then having to catch speed, that wasn’t going to happen. So, I do notice that he’s become more of a connector. I see a little something with him and Nimari, him and Tray Jackson — maybe that’s what that position is, to be a connector within the program, not just on the court. The one other area is his shooting. I see an improved shooter.”
