The Univ. of Michigan men's basketball team has "sold out of season tickets" and reached the "highest demand for season tickets in 19 years with 11,163 claimed" for coach Juwan Howard's first season, according to James Hawkins of the DETROIT NEWS. That mark "surpasses last year's sales of 10,775 and is the most" since the '00-01 season. UM students have "claimed 3,255 season tickets so far, which passes last year's total of 3,086."
