Michigan releases non-conference basketball schedule



Michigan released their non-conference basketball schedule ahead of the upcoming season Monday which will feature some familiarity right off the gate for the Wolverine head coach John Beilein.

November 6th, Michigan will play Division II opponent Le Moyne in an exhibition. So what right?

Well, Le Moyne is coached by Patrick Beilein, son of John Beilein which presents a bit of a tough situation for his wife Kathleen and her own rooting interests.

“Kathleen and I are so proud of Patrick as he moves into this next stage of his coaching career,” Beilein said in a released statement as U-M released its nonconference basketball schedule today. “Having the opportunity of coaching against my son in one of his very first games at Le Moyne College will be a special moment for the both of us. A big question for this game will be, who will Kathleen root for?”

For most Michigan fans though the non-conference is headlined with a match up against Xavier on November 20th and North Carolina State on December 1st as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
