Reading Time: 7 minutesMichigan basketball finished 5-0 in their series of non-conference games to start this season, and it’s a fair statement so far to say they will be an NCAA Tournament team. How far they go is still a very unanswerable question at this point, but Michigan looks like a solid squad with a good starting lineup and some firepower off the bench.

Reading Time: 3 minutes Diamond Stone is one of the biggest “What ifs” of Maryland basketball this recent decade. Stone came to College Park ranked as a 5-star, top-10 recruit and was the best recruit Maryland had ever signed. The 6-foot-11 big man showed a lot of promise in his freshman year averaging 12.5 PPG and 5.4 RPG. His freshman season was highlighted by a 39 point performance in a win against Penn State.
