The Basketball Tournament has become one of the world's most prominent open-application tournaments. Teams from all over the world travel to the states to compete in the open field tournament that holds a grand prize of 1 million dollars to split amongst each other.

The tournament has been around since 2014 and has as many as 97 teams and as few as 24 teams in one year but most often have a 64-team field. The teams are put together by general managers and are mostly designed by the college programs that the players competed for during their school days. This year, we are supposed to see a team representing Maize and Blue.

Names like Derrick Walton, Trey Burke, Jon Teske, Charles Matthews, Chaundee Brown, and Jamal Crawford are some of the first to come to mind when thinking of eligible players. There were a few others mentioned as well, proving how deep Michigan basketball blood runs.

Looking at Michigan's history in the basketball tournament and how players such as Franz Wagner, Isaiah Livers, Caris Levert, Tim Hardaway Jr., and more are progressing in the NBA, it's believable that the Wolverines will make a solid run. How far do you think they could make it? Who do you recommend to be on the team?
