It’s been six days to forget for the Michigan men’s basketball team. First, the Wolverines lose two straight home games this week — totaling four straight losses — and star forward Isaiah Livers goes down with another injury Saturday. Monday, senior point guard Zavier Simpson is suspended for one game for a “violation of team policy.” How will Michigan fare without the nation’s assists leader Tuesday night when they travel to Nebraska? How will the the Wolverines right the ship after losing five of their last six games? Senior sports editor Ben Katz sits down with beat writers Connor Brennan, Daniel Dash and Jacob Kopnick to discuss.
