Now the waiting begins for Michigan.
Michigan has emerged in recent years as an elite Big Ten program - while also losing several players early to the NBA. That's just a fact of life for top college teams these days.
After Sunday's 75-72 loss to Kentucky left the Wolverines one win short of a second straight Final Four appearance, talk quickly turned to the future - and whether Nik Stauskas, Glenn Robinson III and Mitch McGary will leave Michigan for the pros.
Stauskas, Robinson and McGary are all sophomores, and it would not be a surprise if any of them turned pro. Robinson and McGary considered it last year before deciding to come back.
