MICHIGAN: Last season: 33-8, reached national title game.
Nickname: Wolverines.
Coach: John Beilein.
Conference: Big Ten.
Who's gone: Forward Moe Wagner, guard Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman, guard-forward Duncan Robinson.
Who's back: Charles Matthews passed on the NBA and returned to the Wolverines. He averaged 13 points a game last season. Point guard Zavier Simpson shot just 29 percent from 3-point range and 52 percent on free throws, but his defensive intensity set the tone for much of Michigan's success. Jordan Poole averaged only 6 points a game as a freshman, but his 3-pointer at the buzzer beat Houston to send Michigan to the Sweet 16. Isaiah Livers and Eli Brooks combined for 34 starts in 2017-18. At 7-foot-1, Jon Teske gives the Wolverines a big defensive presence inside, and he's shown flashes on offense.
Who's new: Freshmen Brandon Johns and David DeJulius were rated No. 60 and No. 93 in ESPN's Class of 2018 Top 100. Ignas Brazdeikis averaged 28.4 points as a senior at Orangeville Prep in Canada.
The Skinny: Michigan's defensive resurgence helped the Wolverines to a Sweet 16 berth in 2017 and last season's Final Four run. Wagner will be tough to replace, and a lot may depend on how much Poole, Livers and the new freshmen can contribute offensively.
Expectations: Las Vegas oddsmakers have Michigan at 35-1 to win the NCAA Tournament, the same odds as rival Michigan State. Only 11 teams ' and none from the Big Ten ' are given shorter odds.
Michigan, Montana set for rare NCAA tourney rematch

Michigan began its run to last year's NCAA title game by beating an opponent from the Big Sky Conference.

And in what ranks as a major oddity, the Wolverines will be playing the same exact squad in the first round of this year's NCAA Tournament.

Introductions will not be in order when second-seeded Michigan (28-6) takes on 15th-seeded Montana (26-8) on Thursday in West Region play at Des Moines, Iowa.

It could be seen as a bit of an unfair draw for the Grizzlies, who play in a one-bid league.

"I'm shocked a little bit that they would match the same two teams," Montana coach Travis DeCuire told reporters. "Typically, they'd change it. But it is what it is. I think there's a lot for us to look forward to. Our guys will be excited for the rematch."

Michigan won last year's matchup 61-47 behind 20 points and 11 rebounds from guard Charles Matthews.

Neither team will need to be reminded that the Grizzlies scored the game's first 10 points before the Wolverines awoke.

The victory was the first of five for Michigan before it was outclassed 79-62 by Villanova in the national championship game. The Wolverines faced elimination in the second round against Houston before guard Jordan Poole drained a decisive 3-pointer as time expired.

Michigan was a No. 3 seed last year but is on the No. 2 line this season despite losing 65-60 to Michigan State on Sunday in the Big Ten tournament final.

Matthews, a senior, took the seeding as a compliment.

"It's always big to be a two seed," Matthews told reporters. "We didn't finish like we wanted, but we still had a pretty good season. This loss hurt, but we've got to forget about it now, make a long run in the tournament and try to be national champions."

Wolverines coach John Beilein is more worried about the opponent than the seeding. He hasn't forgotten that game-opening run by the Grizzlies.

"It's Montana again," Beilein told reporters. "They have got a terrific program to go and win all these games, win the (Big Sky) championship. Anybody that's playing in the conferences that they play in, and you win a championship, you're playing usually more road games than home, overall. You've got to be a heck of a team, and they were last year."

The Grizzlies have won 52 games over the past two seasons -- the best run in program history -- and are part of the NCAA field for the fifth time since 2009-10.

Seeing the same opponent in back-to-back tourneys wasn't what they had in mind, but senior guard Bobby Moorehead said all they can do is make the best of the situation.

"I thought we played well against them early last year, we just fell apart in the second half," Moorehead told reporters. "That's encouraging. I know they have a lot of the same guys back, we have a lot of the same guys back, so I'm excited. I think it will be a good matchup."

Senior guard Ahmaad Rorie (15.1 average), junior guard Sayeed Pridgett (15.0) and senior guard Michael Oguine (13.2) form a productive trio for the Grizzlies.

Montana senior center Jamar Akoh has missed the past 12 games with a knee injury. He averages 15.5 points and 8.7 rebounds.

Freshman forward Ignas Brazdeikis leads Michigan with an average of 15.1 points per game. Poole, a sophomore averaging 12.8 points, and Matthews (12.0) also contribute double-digit points.
