The (#18) University of Michigan men’s basketball team played their first “real” game of the 2011-2012 season on Friday (11/11/2011) vs. Ferris State, and they won 59-33. So, they’re 1-0. Yay!
Yeah, they won by 26 points, but it was only 6 points (22-16) at halftime. They played another lethargic 1st half, and only shot 27.6%. FSU pulled within 1 point (22-21) early in the 2nd half, before Michigan finally woke up. Once they got going, Michigan played well, and won going away.
