In their first game back after an extended pause, the Wolverines came out showing signs of rust. That all changed when Howard's fiery response to a second half no-call ignited the team, which promptly came back and earned a victory.
Midway through the second half, senior guard Eli Brooks dove for a loose ball, scraping at the hardwood as he attempted to give the Michigan men’s basketball team an extra possession. Brooks didn’t end up covering up the loose ball, instead it fell into the arms of a Purdue player.
The Michigan men’s basketball team will play against Penn State in Happy Valley on Wednesday, Jan. 27, after the two teams’ previous matchup waspostponed due to COVID-19 cases within the Nittany Lions program, Michigan announced in a release to reporters on Friday.
