Northwestern guard Bryant McIntosh says he has seen a difference in the way his team is recognized after making the NCAA Tournament last season.

The Daily sat down with Bryant McIntosh at Big Ten Media Day in October — before things started to go wrong for Northwestern — to discuss how things had changed in Evanston, how expectations had affected the team and how last season’s game against Michigan propelled the Wildcats into the tournament.

Michigan defeated Minnesota 73-70 in overtime at the Crisler Center on Saturday,

Once again, the Wolverines pulled a rabbit out of their hat in a game they tried desperately to lose, topping Minnesota, 76-73, in a bewildering back and forth slugfest.

Redshirt sophomore guard Charles Matthews played well against Northwestern after struggling in Big Ten play.

Charles Matthews is looking to re-discover the consistency he enjoyed at the beginning of the season.

Junior forward Moritz Wagner held Northwestern center Dererk Pardon to just nine points.

The defense had no choice but to step up with how much Michigan struggled on the offensive end, namely in the first half.

Michigan lost, 92-88, against No. 3 Purdue at Mackey Arena on Thursday night.

In a wild, back-and-forth game between two top-25 teams, it was the Boilermakers that emerged victorious.

Michigan men's basketball coach John Beilein thinks Purdue might be the best Big Ten team he's ever played.

Beilein gave Purdue high praise on Wednesday, but with the way the Boilermakers have been playing, it's easy to see where he is coming from.

Fifth-year senior forward Duncan Robinson had a good game on Sunday in the midst of a tough month of January.

Robinson took advantage of his opportunity on Sunday, taking shots that he passed on in prior games.

Redshirt sophomore Charles Matthews was a part of a stagnant Michigan offense that scored just 27 points in the first half.

The platitudes and jests don’t do justice to how No. 23 Michigan has performed recently — its offense is non-existent, especially in the first half.


In what may kindly be deemed a defensive struggle — and not so kindly, a downright ugly game — the twenty-third ranked Wolverines improved to 17-5 overall and 6-3 in Big Ten play with a 62-47 win over Rutgers.

Michigan men’s basketball coach John Beilein is preparing for another aggressive defense in Rutgers on Sunday.

Michigan could finish with a lackluster total this Sunday. Rutgers possesses a stronger threat than its record indicates.
