2023-24 Season

Notebook: Familiar matchup headlines UNC Asheville opener

The Michigan basketball team and its new-look roster are finally ready to kick off the 2023-24 season, and although the Wolverines don’t have a high-major team on their schedule to kick things off, their opponent is no cakewalk. 

For a Michigan team trying to mesh transfers together and hit the ground running, UNC Asheville — picked to win the Big South Conference in its preseason poll — will be a key first test.

It’s an experienced team with plenty of returning players, including seven of the top nine players from last year’s NCAA Tournament squad, headlined by someone who at least one Michigan starter would consider a familiar face: Drew Pember.
