Freshman forward Isaiah Livers didn't think his latest ankle injury was serious.

Asked about where he thinks Michigan deserves to be seeded, fifth-year senior forward Duncan Robinson instead summoned a different sport — with a much smaller ball — for comparison.

“There’s a week left, so there’s a lot of moving pieces still,” Robinson said after winning the Big Ten Tournament on Sunday evening. “But we’re in the clubhouse, I guess you could say.”

And if the No. 7 Michigan men’s basketball team is comfortably perched in the clubhouse, it is waiting anxiously as the rest of college hoops makes the turn down the back nine.

Michigan in a game against Iowa at Madison Square Garden Thursday.

NEW YORK CITY, NY. — There was nothing normal about it.

Not all three captains notching two fouls early in the first half.

Not senior guard Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman and junior center Moritz Wagner both fouling out.

Not the suddenly dormant 3-point shooting — 3-for-19 on the day.

Not the late blown lead — up six with a minute to go.

In the end, though, the result was.
