Some people would have us believe the University of Michigan is a key representative for our State, and many believe that UM Basketball offers a showcase for some of our best players. While that may have been true at one time, those days are gone.
In fact, only ONE PLAYER on the Wolverine roster is from Michigan. 14 UM players are not from Michigan, including five from Indiana and two from California.
So that's 1 out of 15, less than 7%. How much of a big deal this may be is up to anybody to decide as they so wish. But the John Beilein program is certainly not a "Michigan-Made Product".
By contrast, nearly half of the Michigan State Men's Basketball Roster is from the State of Michigan.
