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.

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