Caris LeVert and fellow senior guard Spike Albrecht will watch from the bench as Michigan faces Iowa.

The Hawkeyes have dropped four straight games and five of their last six, and they seem like a shell of the team that jumped out to a 7-0 start in Big Ten play.

Senior guard Caris LeVert speaks with the media about ending his season to recover from an injury and his upcoming Senior Night at Crisler Center on Wednesday.

LeVert has played just 11 minutes since injuring his lower left leg on Dec. 30, and Albrecht played in eight games this season before ending his career to allow his hip to recover from a lingering injury.

Caris LeVert, who has played just 11 minutes in 2016, will now miss the rest of the season.

Michigan coach John Beilein announced Tuesday morning that LeVert will focus on recovery for the rest of the season.

John Beilein will spend the week preparing his team for Saturday's regular-season finale as if it were an NCAA Tournament game.

Michigan is in the Big Dance with a win, while a loss would likely put the Wolverines on the outside looking in.

The Wolverines missed a dunk and two run-of-the-mill layup opportunities in the second half of their 68-57 loss at Wisconsin.

Zak Irvin, pictured here on Feb. 16 at Ohio State, scored 14 points to go along with eight rebounds and two steals Sunday.

Wisconsin became the latest opponent to perpetrate a run and do Michigan in, using an 8-0 run midway through the second half to turn a one-point deficit into seven-point lead and eventually a 68-57 win.

The Wolverines can take a big step toward locking up an NCAA Tournament bid with a win in Madison.

Kam Chatman has played sparingly this season, but he grabbed a crucial rebound in Wednesday's win against Northwestern.

The Wolverines’ bench success Wednesday took pressure off of Zak Irvin and Derrick Walton Jr., who have sometimes been the Wolverines’ only reliable options with Caris LeVert out.

Sophomore guard Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman pushes up the court in the second half of Michigan's 72-63 victory over Northwestern on February 24 at Crisler Center.

Abdur-Rahkman finished with 19 points, three rebounds and a pair of assists, leading Michigan from behind twice in a key win.
