Men's Basketball

Senior guard Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman led Michigan to a much-needed road win over Texas on Tuesday night.

The last time the Michigan men’s basketball team took a double-digit lead on the road ended in a collapse.

The Wolverines (1-1 Big Ten, 9-3 overall) squandered a 20-point advantage last Monday at Ohio State — their most devastating loss of the young season.

Michgian coach John Beilein thinks Michigan will need to play its best game of the season against Texas.

Michigan experienced trouble in road games last season, but it’s a different team now, and the Wolverines have to prove once again that they can contend with good teams away from Crisler Center.

Sophomore guard Zavier Simpson made a case for his place among the point guard competition Saturday afternoon.

Zavier Simpson has the pedigree. Now his game might be rounding into form. What if the answer to the season’s preeminent question is just that simple?

Sophomore guard Zavier Simpson finished with 15 points and notched crucial stops to help Michigan complete a comeback over UCLA.

Thanks to Simpson’s defense and timely shooting and Brooks’ free throws, though, the Wolverines’ response to a 15-point deficit was rather unfamiliar.

Junior forward Moritz Wagner hit a pair of 3-pointers and slammed a fast-break dunk to lead the comeback.

Michigan used a late run led by junior forward Moritz Wagner and sophomore guard Zavier Simpson to push the game into overtime, where the Wolverines flew past the Bruins to win, 78-69.

Michigan coach John Beilein said that his team needs to toughen up in order to handle top competition.

Though the Bruins have played a relatively easy schedule so far, their 7-1 record and status as a marquee program is enough to provide a stout test for Michigan.

Michigan coach John Beilein said ironing out this year's rotation will be "a journey" for the Wolverines.

This iteration of the Michigan men’s basketball team heads into a game against UCLA with about as little clarity in its rotation as any team in the Big Ten.

Fifth-year senior forward Duncan Robinson has struggled in his last three games, shooting 4-for-23 from the field.

Losing to Ohio State created a sense of urgency for the Wolverines, and Robinson snapping out of a shooting funk can be the first step to seeing a difference on the scoreboard.

Michigan has tinkered with a variety of lineups, and still has yet to find its formula for success this year.

The revolving door that has rested on Beilein’s psyche has revealed both the question marks and the potential for the Wolverines this season.

When it mattered most Monday night, no Michigan player proved capable of stopping the bleeding in time to escape with a win.
