Here is what Wolverines head coach Juwan Howard had to say following Michigan’s loss to Indiana in the Big Ten Tournament.
“I’m not in charge of the selection committee,” Michigan head coach Juwan Howard said after the loss. “But I would say this: Our guys have put themselves in the position to have an opportunity. And I’m going to pray. The prayer ward is going to be open. I’m going to wait on Sunday with my players and see where the chips fall at the end. “But at the end of the day, you know, whatever is decided, I’m still proud of how this team, coaches, the Michigan family has been together.”
“And we talk about family, we don’t use that word loosely. But our family was challenged throughout the year, and I love how we have been able to stay connected through those times.”
Howard took responsibility for the loss, refusing to deflect blame elsewhere.
“It starts with me. I take full accountability. I’m never the one that’s going to deflect or point the finger,” Howard continued.
“I’m going to watch film and there’s going to be a lot of moments where I have a lot of disturbance in my sleep because I’m going to be playing every play on how I could have done better and what I could have done better to secure this victory for us.”
Nation, do you think the NCAA committee made the correct decision in regards to Michigan?
