The Michigan Wolverines are going to be very dangerous in 2013-14. They may be losing Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr., but Glenn Robinson III and Mitch McGary are returning. Michigan is adding the No. 12 ranked recruiting class, according to Rivals.com.
The Hoosiers defeated the Wolverines twice this season in large part because of Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo. Those two, plus five more Hoosiers, are departing. IU is losing much more talent than Michigan.
Because Robinson III, McGary and Nik Stauskas are coming back, Michigan retains a good portion of its 2012-13 team. The experience those three bring is a key difference-maker.
Indiana will have to find an answer for McGary. His energy is constant, and his size will make him a terror in the paint.
Look for Indiana to struggle when they have to face the 2013 NCAA tournament runner-up.
