Senate honors UM's NCAA finalist basketball team

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - State senators have given a rousing welcome to the University of Michigan's NCAA finalist men's basketball team. Wolverines coach John Beilein and four of his players received a bipartisan round of cheers Thursday at the Michigan Capitol. Democratic Sen. Rebekah Warren of Ann Arbor and Republican Majority Leader Randy Richardville jointly introduced the Michigan team, which lost to Louisville 82-76 in the title game April 8. Beilein says the biggest question he got when he came to Michigan was how he'd beat cross-state rival Michigan State. Beilein says it would be "a dream come true if some day, both ... are playing in the Final Four at the same time." Players Jordan Morgan, Jon Horford, Eso Akunne and Corey Person accompanied their coach.
