Michigan had an incredible year on the hardwood this season. Even though it didn’t quite end how the Wolverines had hoped, it was still an impressive result for second-year head coach Juwan Howard and his team.

Tuesday night, Michigan’s NCAA Tournament run ended after a 51-49 loss to UCLA in the Elite Eight. Though they had multiple chances to take the lead or win the game late, the Wolverines came up short.

Still, Michigan closed out its season with a 23-5 record, a B1G regular season title and a No. 1 seed in the tournament. That’s a pretty impressive list of accomplishments for a second-year head coach.

After the game, Howard sent out a message to all the fans and supporters for Michigan’s basketball team for the past year. He posted it on Twitter:

Not only did Michigan accomplish a lot on the floor, but the program was faced with a long pause due to COVID-19 concerns. Despite the lengthy time away from the game, the team still performed at a high level.

Two years into Howard’s run at Michigan, and the future is already looking pretty bright in Ann Arbor.
