Ignas Brazdeikis (16 ppg, 6 rebs) led the Wolverines with 23 points versus Rutgers as the forward has been able to establish himself more and more as the season progresses. Xavier Simpson (9ppg, 7 rebs) is yet another pivotal player for Michigan as he has scored in double-figures in the last five outings.
