Michigan Basketball with Ashley Bastock

We know, a lot of our conversations have revolved around Michigan Basketball lately. Truth be told, it's probably the most interesting team in the area. Will they make the NCAA tournament? Are they a top 25 team? Does Isaiah Livers completely change the dynamic of the team? Is Juwan Howard becoming a great head coach? Are they pretenders?

We honestly don't know.

What we do know, is that something interesting has been brewing in Ann Arbor this year. Yesterday, we talked to Anthony Broome about how Juwan Howard has helped Austin Davis bloom into the intimidating figure known as "Custard Shaq".

Today, the focus turned to Associate Head Coach Phil Martell, and his unique path to Ann Arbor.
