For Michigan, the story is already written

At 6:13 pm on Sunday night, the Michigan men’s basketball team could finally breathe. After weeks of speculation and missed opportunities to punch their own ticket, the Wolverines made it out of the bubble and into the bracket.

“I definitely was nervous, I’m not gonna lie,” graduate guard DeVante’ Jones said. “I feel like we let a lot of games slip, so I didn’t know how the people that were actually making the brackets, I didn’t know how they would perceive us.”

With an 11 seed, Michigan coach Juwan Howard and his team have narrowly avoided the embarrassment of being the first Michigan team since 2015 to not make the NCAA Tournament. But, this sense of relief comes with a caveat: This story has already been written.
