Here's an article breaking down UM basketball's exhibition win over the Madrid Generals during their Spain trip.
Here are my main takeaways that I think some people would find interesting:
The placement of the B1G games will be announced tomorrow on a special BTN Basketball & Beyond at 3pm so we'll probably have the full schedule tomorrow.
Here is the complete non-conference schedule, though.
11/6 vs Norfolk State
11/10 vs Holy Cross
11/14 at Villanova (Gavitt Tipoff Games)
11/17 George Washington (HOF Tipoff in Uncasville, CT)
11/18 Providence/South Carolina (HOF Tipoff in Uncasville, CT)
11/23 vs UT-Chattanooga
11/28 vs North Carolina (B1G/ACC Challenge)
12/9 vs South Carolina
There appears to be no way to watch or listen to the game, but the men's basketball team kicks off its preseason European tour today in Madrid. Mlive's @AndrewKahn is tweeting updates:
At halftime, Michigan is tied at 39. The scorers:
Poole: 10 points
Johns, Davis, and Brooks: 4 each
Teske and Simpson limited due to foul trouble.
So as the basketball is in Spain, I figured I'd talk about just how recognizable the MBB program is around the world. I've done some research vigorously with these stats over the years for the basketball program to see just how storied and prestigious we've become in that sport
ESPN had a short article on 5 burning questions for the B1G hoops conference. It featured 2 Michigan mentions

Zavier looks like he is total control.
Iggy is going to be a major player this year.
Charles and Jordan are playing with attitude and toughness.
Teske is doing a Bill Laimbeer imitation from three.
Nunez has a sweet three point stroke.
The team was absolutely getting after it with each other.
