On Monday, the Michigan basketball program released their non-conference schedule for the upcoming 2021-22 season.
Trips to Chapel Hill, Las Vegas, Washington, D.C, Orlando, and Detroit highlight what should be an exciting slate of basketball before the Wolverines begin Big Ten play starting in early December.
The Wolverines will begin their season in Detroit for an exhibition as they help christen the new basketball arena at Wayne State University on Friday, No. 5.
November for the Wolverines will be a busy one as just three home games (Buffalo, Seton Hall, and Tarleton State) sandwiched between neutral site events. First, the Wolverines go to D.C. to face Prairie View A&M in the Coaches vs. Racism event.
Over Thanksgiving, the Wolverines will be in Las Vegas for the Roman Main Event on Nov. 19-21. They’ll open up the event against UNLV and face the winner of Arizona vs. Wichita State.
In December, the Wolverines will once again participate in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge to match up with the North Carolina Tar Heels on Dec. 1. Upon the Wolveirnes return to Ann Arbor, a former friend comes home. San Diego State, coached by former Michigan assistant Brian Dutcher comes to Crisler Arena on Dec. 4. The last game for the Wolverines before taking on the bulk of the Big Ten slate will be at Central Florida on Dec. 30.
