Getting to know Michigan basketball's final European opponent - Mons

By Michael Rothstein

After three games, three losses but also three times where the Michigan basketball team saw gradual improvement, one game remains in its Belgian adventure.

And it is against Mons, administrative assistant Travis Conlan's old professional team.

The Belgian tour finale starts at 7 p.m. Belgian time (1 p.m. Eastern).

Roster Roster analysis: Much like the last two teams Michigan played, there are a lot of familiar names to basketball fans. Marcus Hatten was a guard at St. John's under former head coach Mike Jarvis. Shan Foster was a star at Vanderbilt, leaving the schools as the Commodores' all-time leading scorer. Justin Cage, a former Xavier forward, helped lead the Musketeers to the Elite Eight.
