Wolverines look to sweep Hawkeyes

BY CHANTEL JENNINGS

Freshman Evan Smotrycz’s and junior Stu Douglass’s 3-point shots from the waning moments of the Michigan men’s basketball team’s loss to Illinois only stayed fresh in their minds for a little bit.

CHAMPAIGN — The relatively undersized Michigan men’s basketball team was probably relieved to hear on Wednesday night that 7-foot-1 Illinois center Mike Tisdale wouldn’t be starting for just the second time all season. But whatever solace the Wolverines found didn’t last long.
