Michigan had lost just once in 21 games entering Friday night’s game at Iowa, where the Hawkeyes leveled the Wolverines, 74–59.
Wisconsin, the other team to have beaten Michigan, only led by as many as 10 on that night. Iowa hit six of its 14 three-point attempts and 46 of all of its attempts from the field. Boy, can the Hawkeyes be tough at home.
The Wolverines don’t depend on any one player greatly but they also aren’t going to go far without an engaged and effective Charles Matthews, who went just 2-for-12 against Iowa on Thursday.
Zavier Simpson flirted with a triple-double but finished just 2-for-8 from the field (10 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists).
The loss at Iowa shouldn’t concern Michigan too much. Given Michigan State’s injury problems, there isn’t any reason U of M can’t win the Big 10 and make some more noise come March.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
Rutgers has won its last two home games against Indiana and Nebraska. It did lose by 14 at Ohio State on Saturday afternoon, however.
Rutgers is just 4–7 in the conference and not going much of anywhere, as far as the postseason is concerned. The Scarlet Knights do carry just one senior who averaged about 17 minutes and 3.6 points per game, though.
What that means is that, maybe, just maybe, Rutgers could be a bit of a player in the Big Ten next season. That would be a first. As if that conference weren’t tough enough.
