The arrival of standout freshmen Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III has made for hopes high in Ann Arbor, but living up to a No. 5 preseason ranking won’t be an easy task for Michigan. The Big Ten is the strongest, deepest conference in college basketball this year, and even the non-conference schedule features some high-powered opposition.
