Houstan was 1 of 4 Wolverines to average double figures in the 2021-22 season and averaged 10.1 points, 4 rebounds and 1.4 assists. He was also a key from deep, shooting 36% from 3-point range.

Houstan – along with Eli Brooks – started all 34 games for Michigan last season while Diabate appeared in 32 games with 26 starts. Replacing their production will be key in 2022-23 for a team coming off a Sweet 16 appearance.
