The Wolverines' nine victories have come mainly against smaller schools, but Michigan did beat a ranked Oregon State team. The only loss came against ranked Louisville in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. F/C Naz Hillmon is third in the Big Ten in scoring (20.2), fifth in shooting (59.5%) and fifth in rebounding (8.6).
