Michigan head coach John Beilein explains why have such a big break between their conference tournament and the NCAA tourney has benefit the team heading into the bwilein round. A big reason why is the continued evolution of John Beilein, who has been coaching since the mids, but remains a student of the game. The Wolverines are a matchup nightmare because they can run their offense through Moe Wagnerwho tries to play like his idol and fellow German Dirk Nowitzki.

Unlike most college centers, the 6-foot Wagner can pick and pop or roll to basket like an NBA player. Michigan also has the ability to spread the floor with multiple 3-point shooters, a Beilein staple. Winning the Big Ten tournament extended the team’s win streak to nine and generated excitement about the possibilities for another NCAA run.

Postgame speeches may be preceded by Beilein soaking his players with water or dancing in the locker room after a big win. Beilein, though, insisted that allowing his players to be loose on the court isn’t one of the many changes he has made over his career.


We’ve always prided ourselves on relating to players and keeping up with the times. Jon Sanderson, the team’s strength and conditioning coach, has witnessed Beilein’s adjustment to the latest hoops technology.

When the former Ohio State and Ohio University player left a similar position at Clemson to work for Beilein nearly a decade ago, jjohn started tracking how hard the Wolverines were exerting themselves in practices and workouts. He has evolved as a coach. His humility is what separates him. He doesn’t approach anything like he has all the answers.

He’s the reason I’m still here. I’ve had many opportunities to leave for different jobs — some at the NBA level — but I’m not going anywhere as long as he’s here.
