Former Michigan guard and Academic All-Big Ten regular Zack Novak will be in the Big Ten Network studio Wednesday night for the Wolverines' game at Minnesota (9 p.m. ET, BTN/BTN2Go).

Novak, Michigan's all-time leader in career minutes (4,357) and just the second Wolverine to serve as captain for three seasons, gradated in 2012 and spent the 2012-13 season with Landstede Basketbal in Zwolle, Netherlands.

That proved to be Novak's one and only pro season, as the Ross School of Business graduate opted to put his degree to work. He has spent the past year as an operations associate at Uptake in Chicago.

What can Michigan fans expect from Novak on Wednesday night? He'll conduct a Facebook Live video interview before the game and take over @MichiganOnBTN during the game.

Check out our quick Q&A with Novak below. Favorite Michigan teammate, and why?
ZN: Impossible to choose a favorite. DeShawn Sims was definitely the most interesting, though. Best player, either a teammate or Big Ten rival, that you faced?
ZN: Trey Burke. Pro from day 1. Have a favorite behind-the-scenes John Beilein story that not everyone knows?
ZN: Coach asked a freshman why farmers put cow manure around trees. The player said, "to keep the animals away." Which Bacari Alexander pep talk was most memorable, and why?
ZN: One time BA smashed an orange and the entire starting 5 got orange juice sprayed on them. The Ann Arbor dining establishment you find yourself craving the most?
ZN: Sadako Sushi
