John Beilein hopes his team has learned the right lessons from last season's NCAA tournament run, when Michigan came within a few points of a national title.
Glenn Robinson III and Mitch McGary are coming back to Michigan, hoping to form the nucleus of the Wolverines' next national title contender.
The last note of "One Shining Moment" had yet to reach the people in the cheap seats at the Georgia Dome when college basketball started doing what it does so well _ looking ahead to next season.
Michigan brushes off any comparisons to the Fab Five.
Attacking Syracuse's suffocating zone defense in the first half with 3-pointers, crisp passing and a fearless attitude, the Wolverines advanced to the national championship game with a 61-56 victory over the Orange in the Final Four on Saturday night.

Mitch McGary had 21 points and 14 rebounds, and the fourth-seeded Wolverines breezed through Virginia Commonwealth's vaunted pressure with a clinical performance Saturday, beating the fifth-seeded Rams 78-53 to advance to the NCAA round of 16 for the first time since 1994.

"We'll talk about that whenever I need to but you know this isn't the time to talk about that right now. It's about all these guys in the locker room that played their hearts out tonight."
