No. 6 Michigan is shooting for the national title under Juwan Howard
ANN ARBOR – Juwan Howard shoots to win a national championship, an accomplishment he missed as a coach and player in Michigan.
In Howard’s third season as coach, the former Fab Five isn’t afraid to say he and his players have the ambition to cut the nets at the Final Four in April.
“That is the goal every year, always to win championships,” he said.
The Wolverines are the top-ranked Big Ten team, ranked 6th in the preseason AP Top 25, and recognize the talent, depth, and coaching that give them a realistic chance of getting the school’s second NCAA title and their first since 32 Years to win.
Michigan is led by 7-foot-1 center Hunter Dickinson, who last season named All-America Second-Team, Big Ten Freshman of the Year, and All-Conferences. Guard Eli Brooks, who started 68 games, opted for an extra season of entitlement available due to the pandemic.
DeVante ‘Jones was recruited as Coastal Carolina graduates by many schools after being named Sun Belt Player of the Year. The Scoring Guard could have stayed in the NBA draft, but chose to pursue a championship in Michigan rather than accepting playing for No. 5 Texas, No. 14 Memphis, or Texas Tech.
