Michigan basketball is back on the court for the fourth season under head coach Juwan Howard. After a sluggish start to the 2021-22 campaign, the Wolverines will look to have a better jump on the season in 2022-23.

So far, Howard has compiled an overall record of 61-32 record in Ann Arbor. That includes a 35-22 mark in B1G play and a regular-season B1G title in the 2020-21 season. Howard has led Michigan to back-to-back Sweet 16’s and an Elite Eight appearance in 2021.

On Monday, the Wolverines are back on the court and Howard had a particular message for the squad:

“We got to get ourselves uncomfortable,” said Howard. “When I say ‘bring the juice,’ it’s not just a word or slogan. That means ‘bring the juice.'”

The Wolverines will play an exhibition game against Ferris State before the start of the regular season in a Nov. 7 game against Purdue Fort Wayne. The conference opener comes on Dec. 8 with a visit to Minnesota.
