Head coach: John Beilein (69-67)
Last season's finish: 21-14, 9-9 in Big Ten. Lost in third round of NCAA tournament.
This season: 3-0.
Biggest personnel loss: Darius Morris to the NBA.
The gameplan: Not to make it an open court, run-out game. If Memphis has 110-120 possessions, it is likely winning the game. If the Wolverines can limit the Tigers' opportunities in transition (which is easier said than done), Michigan will have a chance to win. While Michigan isn't the slow, sloppy team it looked like against Western Illinois, it's not built to keep up with the caliber of athletes Memphis boasts. A 62-55 game would almost certainly favor Michigan.
