Basketball is a hit again on Michigan campus

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Perhaps the best sign that Michigan's basketball program was moving in the right direction came not last weekend in the NCAA tournament, but about a month ago toward the end of the regular season. The Wolverines had just lost to Penn State, a low point during a February stretch that also included a 23-point loss to rival Michigan State. The Wolverines found their character questioned and their prospects for a successful postseason suddenly doubted. But in a way, the angst was a good sign. This Michigan team had raised expectations in Ann Arbor - and it wasn't too late for Trey Burke and his teammates to reach them. Now with a Final Four berth, they have. Michigan will play Syracuse in the National Semifinals Saturday, April 6 at 8:49 p.m. in Atlanta, GA.
