ANN ARBOR -- Michigan basketball fans can get their first look at the Wolverines a few days before their opening game.
Michigan will hold a fan event at Crisler Center on Oct. 28 at 6 p.m. Admission is free.
The "Countdown to Tip-Off" will include fan contests and prizes, a Q&A with head coach Juwan Howard, photo opportunities with the team, and a practice, including a 3-point competition.
The event replaces "Selfie Night," which the program had hosted the previous five years.
Howard's first season as head coach at his alma mater starts with an exhibition game against Saginaw Valley State on Nov. 1. The Wolverines open the regular season on Nov. 5 against Appalachian State. Both contests will be at Crisler.
In addition to Howard, Michigan has two new assistant coaches, plus two freshmen. Zavier Simpson, Jon Teske, Isaiah Livers, and Eli Brooks are the returning players with starting experience.
