It is a road game -- kind of. It is a reunion -- kind of. It is a finale -- kind of.

There are a lot of things that today's Michigan-Oakland game could be categorized as. The Wolverines are traveling to the Palace of Auburn Hills, which is right near the Oakland campus, so while it is a road game there will be a lot of Michigan fans there.

It is kind of a reunion, since former Wolverine Laval Lucas-Perry now comes off the bench for the Golden Grizzlies. And it is kind of a finale because after today, Michigan coach John Beilein has said he doesn't want to renew the series.
