ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Usually when non-conference opponents show up in Crisler Arena, they take on the look of the unfamiliar.
Many have never played in the building. Save for a rare connection between players or coaches, they likely don't know each other too well, either.
Saturday will be different. Saturday might be, save for Duke the past few seasons, the most familiar non-conference opponent Michigan will face even though the Wolverines haven't played the Cyclones since 1992.
