ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan started practice Friday, opening John Beilein's fifth season with the Wolverines. The team reached the second round of the NCAA tournament last season and has every player returning, except for point guard Darius Morris.
Expectations here are high. There's a new practice facility and a refurbished Crisler Arena. And there's a lot of proven talent.
On Monday, four days into practice, Beilein sat down with WolverineNation for an exclusive, wide-ranging interview. Part II looks at Beilein's past and future at Michigan and some personnel decisions.
John Beilein sounds excited and motivated for this season and beyond at Michigan.
