A season after reaching the Finals of the NCAA Tournament, the Michigan Wolverines are looking to repeat that kind of season this year. The Wolverines lost Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. to the NBA Draft, but return Glenn Robinson, Nik Stauskas and Mitch McGary. Michigan is 2-1 after a disappointing loss at Iowa State. The Wolverines had their two wins at home, though, against Massachusetts-Lowell and South Carolina State. Michigan basketball tickets are currently averaging $87 at home. As it’s still early in the season, the Wolverines only have one game at Crisler Arena in the next week.
Michigan will welcome the Coppin State Eagles on Friday, November 29. The Eagles, of the Mid-Eastern Atlantic Conference, are 1-2 with losses to California and Wagner, but the one win was against Oregon State on the road. Still, Coppin State won’t be expected to be one of Michigan’s major home game draws and ticket prices agree with that. Tickets for the Friday game are averaging $25 with a get-in price of just $8. That average price is 71.2% below the average home price for Michigan basketball games at home this season.
This week will be fairly easy for Michigan, but the schedule gets much tougher in the weeks after. The Wolverines will travel to Durham, North Carolina to play Duke on December 3 and will host the Arizona WIldcats on December 14. In the AP Poll, Duke is ranked No. 6 and Arizona is No. 5, making both games tough tests for No. 14 Michigan.
