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.
