The Michigan Sports Marketing Network, headed by flagship station WWJ (950 AM) in Detroit, will have the call. Lane Grindle provides the play-by-play with analyst Terry Mills.
Michigan’s first three games of the season weren’t against big-name opponents but the Wolverines got tougher tests than expected from North Florida, Central Michigan and Southern Mississippi. Given that head coach John Beilein had just four players returning with game experience in his system, that might not be such a shock. It might not also be a bad thing as the tight contests have allowed Beilein to better evaluate players as he attempts to work out a rotation.
The Wolverines have used runs in the second half of 18-1 against North Florida, 18-8 against Central Michigan, and 18-1 against Southern Mississippi to take control of those games.
Starters Duncan Robinson (14.3 points per game), Moe Wagner (13.3), Charles Matthews (13.0) and Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman (12.0) are all averaging double-figures for the Wolverines through the first week of the season. Sophomore center Jon Teske has given the Wolverines a boost off the bench so far, averaging 5.3 points and 4.7 rebounds in 10.7 minutes per game. That kind of production takes some of the pressure off Wagner, who is averaging 9.7 rebounds per game.
Sophomore Zavier Simpson has started the first three games at point guard and is averaging 4.3 assists per game. Grad transfer Jaaron Simmons played 19 minutes and had 5 assists in a 61-47 win against Southern Mississippi last Thursday.
LSU is coming off a 10-21 season and has been picked to finish 14th in the SEC but first-year head coach Will Wade brings the program optimism for a quicker-than-expected turnaround. He coached the previous two seasons at VCU after replacing Shaka Smart and led the Rams to consecutive NCAA tournament appearances. Senior forward Duop Reath is LSU’s top returning scorer from last season when he averaged 12 points. Freshman point guard Tremont Waters has averaged 16.0 points and 7.0 assists in the first two games.
This is the Wolverines’ first trip to the Maui Invitational since 2011 when it finished third.
