The team played its home games in the Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and was a member of the Big Ten Conference. Under the direction of head coach Bill Frieder, the team won the Big Ten Conference.[1] The team earned the number one seed in the 1985 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament where it advanced one round before losing.[2] Although the team began the season unranked it was in the Associated Press Top Twenty Poll a total of twelve of the seventeen weeks, including a peak of number two where it ended the season,[3] and it also ended the season ranked number two in the final UPI Coaches' Poll.[4] During the season, the team led the Big Ten Conference in scoring margin (8.8) and Roy Tarpley led the conference in rebound with a 9.9 average in conference games.[5][6] Leslie Rockymore and Butch Wade served as team captains and Tarpley earned team MVP.[7] Tarpley earned 1985 NCAA All-American recognition.[8]

For the first of five consecutive seasons, the team set the school record for single-season field goal percentage with a 51.3% (941-for-1834) performance.[9]Antoine Joubert's single-season total of 164 assists established a school record that would be eclipsed the following season by Gary Grant. It surpassed Eric Turner's 160 total set in 1983.[10] Grant had 7 steals on January 19, 1985, against Iowa, which tied Rickey Green and Turner for the best single-game totals in school history.[11]Roy Tarpley surpassed his school single-season blocked shots average record of 2.09 set the prior season with an average of 2.20. He would rebreak this record the following season.[12] On February 7, 1985, against Purdue, Tarpley totaled 7 blocks in a game to earn the school single-game record that he would rebreak ten months later.[12]

On January 12, 1985, the team began a 17-game winning streak against the Purdue that continued through a March 15 victory over Fairleigh Dickinson in the NCAA tournament. This stands as the longest winning streak in school history, surpassing the January 29, 1921 - January 6, 1922 14-game streak.[13] On January 5, 1985, the team began a 24-game home winning streak against the Ohio State that continued through a February 15, 1986, victory over Iowa. This stands as the longest home winning streak in school history, surpassing the 22-game January 12, 1976 - November 30, 1977, streak. The streak ended with a February 20, 1986 74-59 loss to Michigan State.[13] January 12 also marked the start of a 10-game road winning streak that continued through a January 4, 1986, victory over Ohio State. This stands as the longest road winning streak in school history, surpassing two 7-game streaks that ended in 1921. The streak ended with a January 16, 1986 73-63 loss to Minnesota.[13]
