While the Michigan Wolverines basketball program has been known for some of its scorers (Manny Harris, Daniel Horton, Tim Hardaway Jr., Nik Stauskas, etc.), in the past decade, it has had its fair share of lockdown defenders, too.
Although they don't get as much glory as they do for their scoring, these five fiery defenders have a special place in Michigan lore for their ability to man up on defense. Defense is half of the game after all, and as they say, defense wins championships. Heck, Michigan's stifling defense almost resulted in it winning the 2013 NCAA championship.
Listed in this slideshow are Michigan's five best defenders (ranked in order of effectiveness) of the past decade.
