Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Big Ten, Big Ten Conference, Michigan Basketball, TBHR

The Zak Irvin of old revealed himself in a big way last night for the U-M basketball team. The senior, who had been in a monumental slump the team’s last four games, broke out with 18 points to lead Michigan to a huge 64-58 win over No. 11 Wisconsin at the Crisler Center. Irvin shot 6 of 12 from the field and added five rebounds, […]

Five days after delivering Michigan State its largest conference loss in 14 years and ending a five-game skid against the Spartans, the Michigan men’s basketball team had the chance to vanquish more demons when it traveled to Bloomington, Indiana on Sunday. After beating the Hoosiers by 30 points two weeks ago, the Wolverines defeated IU 75-63 for their first win at Assembly Hall since 2009 […]

Wolverines lose heartbreaker to Buckeyes

Posted on Posted in Big Ten, Big Ten Conference, Michigan Basketball, TBHR

Absolutely pathetic. That’s the only way I can summarize Michigan’s performance from last night. After a tough loss against Michigan State on Sunday, the Wolverines returned to Ann Arbor to face its other rival, Ohio State on Saturday. Just like in East Lansing, senior Derrick Walton was the only player who stepped up for the Wolverines (14-9, 5-6 Big Ten), who lost 70-66 to the […]

Michigan allows late run, loses to Wisconsin on the road

Posted on Posted in Big Ten Conference, Michigan Basketball

After looking solid for most of the contest, Michigan fell short at Wisconsin, losing by a final score of 68-64. Michigan collected a much needed win against Nebraska this past weekend, but couldn’t secure the big upset in the Kohl Center tonight. A win over the 17th ranked Wisconsin Badgers would have surely boosted their NCAA tournament resume. It was another good effort with no reward […]
