  • The Detroit News: Another day: Vanderbilt beats Michigan 4-1, forces deciding Game 3 in College World Series

    Omaha, Neb. -- The college baseball season comes down to one final game, and Michigan continues to stare at history, one win from a national championship.

    Michigan had taken control of the College World Series winning the opener against Vanderbilt Monday night. But facing phenomenal freshman pitcher Kumar Rocker, who had 19 strikeouts in a Super Regional victory, in Game 2 Tuesday, the Wolverines' bats were stymied. Rocker pitched six and a third inning, struck out 11, and for the first time in the NCAA Tournament, Michigan looked tight and unable to find a rhythm.

  • The Detroit News: Wojo: Wolverines back to the brink -- just how they like it

    Detroit -- Their strategy is to shrink the moment, make it less imposing. The funny thing is, the more they shrink it, the larger it gets. And the tougher it gets.

    Michigan fell to Vanderbilt 4-1 Tuesday night, and is down to one last chance, once again, to complete the run from improbable to extraordinary.

    Top 5th

    Ray hit a single to left, prompting Bakich to replace Paige with Benjamin Keizer. Duvall hit a grounder to short, but it went between Blomgren's legs, leaving runners on first and third.

    With no outs, Infante struck out. Martin hit a grounder, scoring Ray and moving Duvall to second with two outs. Bleday was intentionally walked, then a passed ball moved the runners to second and third. Paul was then intentionally walked, but Clarke grounded out to Blomgren to end the inning and the threat.

  • Fansided: Michigan Basketball: Juwan Howard targeting elite recruits is a good thing

    When John Beilein was at the helm of Michigan basketball, the largest critique was his ability to bring in the elite recruits. No one doubted John's ability to develop, how could they? Since 2014 - Beilein's roster has consisted of six first-round draft picks and only one of them was ranked in the top 50 nationally coming out of high school (Mitch McGary, 28th nationally, class of 2012).

    Beilein has the touch, he has the gift; he has the incredible ability to bring in three and four-star recruits and turn them into bonified stars at the collegiate level.

    OMAHA, Neb. - John Kerr isn't much of a storyteller. Not really a talker.

    So, growing up, his grandson, Jimmy, didn't hear many stories of Michigan baseball's fabled 1962 national championship team. But once he arrived in Ann Arbor four years ago as a third-generation U-M player - his father, Derek, played for the 1984 team, the school's last to advance to the College World Series - the stories started flowing.

    Omaha, Neb. -- Michigan, wearing its 1962 throwback uniforms to commemorate the last team to win a baseball national championship for the program, is now win away from making history of its own.

    The Wolverines, one of the last four teams in the NCAA Tournament, has had an improbable, surprising run and came a step closer with a 7-4 win over Vanderbilt, the No. 2 team in the country, before 24,707 at TD Ameritrade Park in the first game of the best-of-three championship series.

  • Fansided: Michigan Basketball: Draft review and catching up with Wolverines in NBA

    June is not only synonymous with summer, but also baseball and drafts. The NBA and NHL drafts take place in the warmer months, two months removed from their NFL counterparts. Since we're not talking about hockey, let's get to this years NBA draft which was filled with drama, excitement, and disappointment. Michigan basketball had two stars taken in the two rounds at Barclays center with another still waiting on an NBA contract.

  • Fansided: Michigan Basketball: Latest on Franz Wagner, Walker Kessler and more

    While much of the focus on recruiting has been on the football program this weekend, Juwan Howard and the Michigan basketball team were also busy on the recruiting trail.

    The first news to report was that Howard extended an offer to another five-star last Friday in 2021 power forward Moussa Diabate. The 6-foot-9 big man ranks 11th nationally for 2021 and is the fifth prospect from the class to get an offer from the Wolverines.

    A top target for Michigan basketball could make his college choice soon.

    And it isn't your typical decision.

    German prospect Franz Wagner -- the younger brother of former U-M star Moritz Wagner -- will soon decide whether he will play collegiately in the United States or remain with Alba Berlin, his professional team, in Germany, according to the Berliner Morgenpost, a major Berlin newspaper.

    In the article, Wagner, 17, says he wants to announce his decision soon -- and could even do it during his team's ongoing series against Bayern Munich in the finals of the German Bundesliga.

  • Maize n Brew: Will Michigan target Franz Wagner stay in Germany or commit to Michigan?

    The Michigan Wolverines are still in contention for a top international recruit, Franz Wagner. For months, Wagner has been contemplating whether he will continue to play professional ball in Germany for Alba Berlin, or come to Ann Arbor and play collegiately for Michigan.

    Wagner is a highly talented small forward who has a ton of potential. Many experts have projected Wagner as an NBA caliber player, someone who would easily be a top-50 recruit in the 2019 class if they ranked international players.

    Franz is 6-foot-7, 190lbs, but plays more of a guard-style than forward on the floor.

  • Fansided: Michigan Basketball: Franz Wagner should make a decision soon

    Now that the 2019 NBA draft is over, the focus for Michigan basketball shifts to Franz Wagner and trying to convince the German-born star to play in Ann Arbor next season.

    Just a couple of days ago, Evans Daniels of 247 sports reported that Wagner was deciding between Michigan basketball and his German team Alba Berlin, which is currently playing the finals of the German playoffs right now.

    While most people thought this was the case, it was good to get confirmation from Daniels, a college basketball insider, that Michigan was still in the hunt for the younger brother of Moritz Wagner.

    With three Wolverines hoping to hear their name called in Thursday's NBA Draft, it was sophomore Jordan Poole that received the ultimate birthday present. On the same day the Milwaukee native celebrated his 20th birthday, he was drafted to one of the NBA's most successful dynasties over the last few years, going to the Golden State Warriors.

    "Being able to work so hard for this particular moment, I had so much support from the coaching staff and my family." Poole told ESPN's Maria Taylor after posing on stage with NBA commissioner Adam Silver.

    Poole brings raw shooting ability that NBA teams crave, and a talent that can be developed alongside some of the biggest stars in the league like Stephen Curry as well as Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant if Golden State re-signs the pair of former champions.
