Groce has experience against Michigan

"He's a really excellent coach," Beilein said. "They do a very good job of putting pressure on the rim offensively and defending people.

"You don't get to that point and have the success he's had by accident.

"We saw that last year. After they beat us fair and square, they won again (beating South Florida in the NCAA Tournament) and then one more big foul shot and they would have beaten North Carolina and been in the Elite Eight."
