Hello, readers. I am excited to announce I’ll be covering the University of Michigan men’s basketball team for UMHoops.com. UM Hoops, run by Dylan Burkhardt, has been around since 2007. The site covers the team year-round, from recruiting to game coverage. It incorporates video and advanced statistical analysis. I’ll be covering specific games and delivering news updates and features. The Wolverines are not ranked in the preseason top-25, but they are receiving votes. With their entire starting five returning, they hope to return to the NCAA Tournament for the second year in a row and sixth time in the last seven seasons.
