LeVert has a professional career to think about, and considering this is the second straight year he’s missed substantial time with a lower-body injury, bringing him back too soon and risking re-injury could have catastrophic effects, for both him and Michigan as a whole.
If the Michigan men’s basketball team’s upset of then-No. 3 Maryland was a pretty performance — just the right mix of 3-point bombs, high-energy defense and timely shooting — Wednesday’s win over Minnesota at Crisler Center was downright ugly.
The Wolverines couldn’t rely on the 3, shooting just 29 percent from beyond the arc — 13 percent below their season average. Even their most prolific sharpshooter, redshirt sophomore guard Duncan Robinson, clanked multiple wide-open attempts off the back of the rim in the first half and shot an abysmal 3-for-12 from the floor in the game.
