Throughout the season, the point guard position has been a source of limited production for the Michigan men’s basketball team.

In their previous game, freshman Eli Brooks and sophomore Zavier Simpson combined for just two points on three shot attempts facing a far inferior Jacksonville team.

But on Tuesday night, Simpson played the best game of his college career, tallying 15 points and 7 assists to lead the Wolverines (2-1 Big Ten, 13-3 overall) to a 75-68 win over Iowa (0-3, 9-7) at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Senior guard Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman led Michigan to a much-needed road win over Texas on Tuesday night.

The last time the Michigan men’s basketball team took a double-digit lead on the road ended in a collapse.

The Wolverines (1-1 Big Ten, 9-3 overall) squandered a 20-point advantage last Monday at Ohio State — their most devastating loss of the young season.

And when Texas (6-3) cut Michigan’s lead to just six with two minutes remaining Tuesday, another heartbreaker threatened.
