UMES men will face Michigan, Wichita State in 2016-17

PRINCESS ANNE, Maryland -- UMES will play at least one school from a Power 5 conference this season.

On Saturday, Dec. 17, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore’s men’s basketball team will travel more than 650 miles to take on the University of Michigan Wolverines in Ann Arbor. The Wolverines of the Big Ten announced their non-conference schedule on Wednesday, July 27.

The Hawks are one of 14 non-conference opponents that the Wolverines will face in the 2016-17 season. The time for the game has not been set. Michigan will also take on Howard, another Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference school, on Friday, Nov. 11.

Michigan finished last season with a 23-13 record and lost in the second round of the NCAA tournament to Notre Dame.

UMES, which finished last season with a 10-22 (7-9 MEAC) record and a first round exit in the MEAC tournament, has not released any parts of its schedule for the 2016-17 season. However, several dates have been confirmed by other schools.
