Michigan announced via its Twitter account that the team will meet at 6 a.m. before making their way to Detroit Metro Airport for a 7:30 a.m. flight to D.C., where they will arrive at 8:45 a.m. and head straight to the Verizon Center for their 12 p.m. tip vs. Illinois.
It’s obviously not ideal, but this is a group that has dealt with several ups and downs this year and bounced back. Thankfully, everyone is safe, and they will look to get themselves a win tomorrow afternoon.
