Zavier Simpson has won both matchups this season against rival Cassius Winston.

When he first came to campus, Isaiah Livers didn’t know much about Zavier Simpson.

So during one of the Wolverines’ summer workouts, the freshman forward decided he’d post Simpson up. It seemed like obvious mismatch. Livers, listed at six-foot-seven, 230 pounds, is one of the most physically imposing players on the Michigan men’s basketball team. Simpson, meanwhile, is sturdy but stands at a layman’s six-foot-nothing.

NEW YORK CITY, NY— With Isaiah Roby bustling to close out, Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rakhman stared down the hoop from the right corner, flicked his wrist and hit nothing but net. The usually stoic and hyper-cool senior guard turned around and let Roby know it, jawing and smiling as he swaggered down the floor.

It was a scene that contrasted the Michigan basketball team’s nail-biting win over Iowa on Thursday, when the Wolverines never truly found that edge and hit just three 3-pointers.
