A couple of Michigan basketball talents are making their jump to the pros officially after one season in Ann Arbor, both Caleb Houstan and Mousa Diabate are going to remain in the pool for the NBA draft coming up later this month. Each declared they’d test the waters with the option to return to the Wolverines for a sophomore season, but they'll officially make themselves available to be taken in a few weeks.

The stage is set tonight for Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Golden State will host the Boston Celtics with tipoff at 9 p.m. The Warriors are looking for their 4th title since 2015, while Boston is aiming for their first since 2008.

And Michigan natives James Piot and Ryan Brehm are in the field of the PGA Tours Memorial Tournament for Round 1 this morning in Dublin, Ohio. Piot’s coaches also came to his defense on his decision to join the controversial LIV Golf Tour beginning next week, when they spoke with the Detroit News saying he needs to do what's best for him and his pro career.
