(6) Notre Dame 70 – (11) Michigan 63: Second half letdown ends Michigan’s season

Saturday, March 19th, 2016


Irvin vs ND(MGoBlue.com)

Michigan survived Tulsa in the First Four on Wednesday night, but couldn’t carry the momentum to Brooklyn, where the Wolverines’ season came to an end with a 70-63 loss to Notre Dame on Friday night.

Unlike Wednesday’s game, Michigan came out firing on all cylinders and playing tough defense, holding a lead the entire first half. It took more than three minutes for Notre Dame to score its first point, but Michigan had only amassed five. Over the next seven minutes, however, Michigan outscored the Irish 21 to 11 to take a 26-13 lead.

Notre Dame pulled within five, but Michigan scored the final seven points of the half, capped by a Moritz Wagner layup at the buzzer. Michigan took a 41-29 lead into the locker room.

But that was as good as it would get for the Wolverines. Notre Dame scored the first eight points of the second half before Mark Donnal finally got Michigan on the board at the 17:49 mark. Unlike the first half, every time Michigan scored, Notre Dame had an answer. Duncan Robinson hit a three, but the Irish scored four straight. Donnal made anther layup, but Notre Dame scored five straight. And suddenly, with 12:18 to play, the game was tied at 48.

Neither team scored for nearly three minutes until Notre Dame’s V.J. Beachem hit a three to give the Irish their first lead. Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman answered with a three of his own and Zak Irvin followed to put Michigan back on top. A 6-2 Notre Dame run gave ND the lead, but a Donnal layup with 4:55 to play put Michigan back on top 58-57. It was the last lead Michigan would have.

The Wolverines managed just three points — a Donnal foul shot and layup — over the next three and a half minutes as Notre Dame 66-61 lead. An Irvin layup brought Michigan within three, and after a defensive stop, Michigan had a chance to tie the game in the closing minute. But Irvin missed a three and the Wolverines were forced to foul. Notre Dame sealed the game at the free throw line.

Michigan shot 39.7 percent for the game, but just 28.1 percent in the second half. After making 7-of-14 three-point attempts in the first half, the Wolverines made just 3-of-13 in the second. Meanwhile, Notre Dame shot a blistering 58.1 percent from the field and made 8-of-15 three-point attempts.

Abdur-Rahkman led Michigan with 15 points on 5-of-12 shooting and 3-of-4 three-point shooting. Derrick Walton was the only other Michigan player in double figures with 10 points on 4-of-13 shooting to go along with eight assists. Donnal, Irvin, and Robinson added nine points apiece.

Beachem led Notre Dame with 18 points, while Bonzie Colson added 12, Demetrius Jackson 11, and Zach Auguste recorded a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds.

Michigan’s season ends at 23-13, while Notre Dame (22-11) advances to the Round of 32 to face Stephen F. Austin on Sunday.

(11) Michigan 67 – (11) Tulsa 62: Wolverines survive First Four behind Wagner spark, Irvin three

Thursday, March 17th, 2016


Irvin vs Tulsa(MGoBlue.com)

In March, the name of the game is survive and advance, and Michigan did just that on Wednesday night. It was far from pretty, but the Wolverines broke into the field of 64 with a 67-62 win over 11-seed Tulsa in Dayton, Ohio.

Duncan Robinson opened the game with a three, but it would not be a sign of things to come as Michigan would make just 6-of-25 three-point attempts for the game.

When the Wolverines were struggling to score in the first half, freshman big man Moritz Wagner provided a spark, recording three of his four blocked shots and keeping them in the game. By the time halftime arrived, Michigan held an eight point lead.

But Tulsa came out more aggressive in the second half and quickly took the lead thanks to three offensive rebounds in the first three minutes. The rest of the game went back and forth with neither team able to pull away by more than a few points. With Derrick Walton in foul trouble for most of the game, Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman took control, driving to the basket consistently, finishing at the rim or drawing fouls.

With the game hanging in the balance in the closing minute, Zak Irvin drilled a three, and Michigan made its free throws down the stretch to seal the win.

Michigan shot 40.7 percent from the field and just 24.0 percent from three-point range, but made three more threes than Tulsa outscored the Golden Hurricane by four at the free throw line.

Irvin and Abdur-Rahkman led Michigan with 16 points apiece, while Duncan Robinson collected a double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds, and Walton contributed a quiet 12. Wagner stuffed the stat sheet with four points, eight rebounds, four blocks, a steal, and an assist in 22 minutes.

Michigan’s defense limited Tulsa to just 3-of-15 from three-point range, and the Wolverines out-rebounded the Golden Hurricane 38-36. Shaquille Harrison was the only Tulsa player in double figures with 23 points on 10-of-13 shooting. The rest of the team went just 15-of-43 from the field.

Michigan (23-12) will travel to Brooklyn tonight to face 6-seed Notre Dame (21-11) in the Barclays Center on Friday. The game will tip at 9:40pm Eastern and will be televised by CBS.

Michigan 72 – #10 Indiana 69: Bench leads Michigan to upset win over top-seed Indiana

Saturday, March 12th, 2016


Chatman vs Indiana(MGoBlue.com)

When the day started Michigan was staring a second straight NCAA Tournament absence square in the face. Now, the Wolverines are being fitted for their dancing shoes.

It took a near miracle for Michigan to survive Northwestern on Day 2 of the Big Ten Tournament, but 24 hours later, John Beilein’s crew knocked off the outright conference champs to advance to the semifinals.

For Friday’s win, the Wolverines certainly took the route less traveled.

On a day when point guard Derrick Walton went without a field goal and scored just two points, a pair of rarely-used bench options stepped up to salvage the season.

Moritz Wagner gave Michigan a huge boost off the bench, scoring nine points on a perfect 3-of-3 from the field and 2-of-2 from the charity stripe. He also ripped down a pair of offensive rebounds and played solid defense against an Indiana team that makes a living inside the paint.

But Wagner’s effort may have been for naught without the last-second heroics of Kam Chatman, a former five-star recruit and starting forward turned bench warmer. Chatman, who forced his way back into the rotation with solid play down the stretch, found himself with the ball in his hands as the clock sped toward triple zeroes.

So he shot, and it’s a good thing he did.

Chatman’s contested three-pointer went in with 0.2 seconds left on the clock and gave Michigan a 72-69 lead.

His final line — 5 points, 1 rebound, 1 steal and 1 block — won’t jump off the box score, but the sophomore made the only play he needed to: The biggest shot of Michigan’s season in likely the program’s most important game since Aaron Harrison’s miracle shot bounced the Wolverines from the Elite 8 two years ago.

As fate would have it, Chatman was only in the game after Teddy ‘TV’ Valentine’s crew bounced Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman from the game with just over a minute to go. MAAR left the game with 15 points, second only to Zak Irvin, who scored 17 points on 5-13 shooting.

Irvin, a 61.8 percent free throw shooter, went a career best 6-of-6 from the line.

Walton, who made a field goal in all 28 of his regular season games this year, is without a bucket in 77 minutes during the Big Ten Tournament. Instead, he dished out a Big Ten tourney record 12 assists in the win over the Hoosiers, giving him 17 in the two games combined.

Duncan Robinson also had a tough shooting day — just 4 for 12 total and 1 for 6 from beyond the arc — but his last make was a big one, tying the game at 69 with under a minute to play. It was the second straight game Robinson hit a triple with Michigan trailing in the final minute.

Now Michigan will turn its attention to a Purdue team that obliterated Illinois by 31 points in Friday’s second matchup. The Wolverines split two meetings with the Boilermakers this season, but the inside trio of A.J. Hammons, Caleb Swanigan and Isaac Hass will give a much smaller Michigan team fits.

Michigan allowed Indiana to grab 15 offensive rebounds Friday. Beilein will need to shore up that aspect before Saturday’s 1pm tip.

Another upset victory over Purdue would almost guarantee Michigan a spot in the NCAA Tournament. As it stands, the Wolverines are right on the cut line, along with teams like Syracuse, Florida, UCONN and Saint Mary’s.

Michigan 72 – Northwestern 70 (OT): Wolverines keep tourney hopes alive

Friday, March 11th, 2016


Irvin vs Northwestern(MGoBlue.com)

It took an extra five minutes, but Michigan kept its NCAA Tournament hopes alive on Thursday afternoon with a 72-70 overtime win over Northwestern in the second round of the Big Ten Tournament.

In the season’s first meeting, Derrick Walton, Zak Irvin, Duncan Robinson, and Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman went a combined 1-of-11 from three-point range. But on Thursday, the four combined to make 10-of-22 from downtown to lead the Wolverines to the win in Indianapolis.

In the first meeting, Northwestern stormed out to a 17-6 lead and Michigan had to fight back. This time, Michigan raced out to a 18-5 lead and took a 34-25 lead into the locker room. But Northwestern used a 12-3 run over a span of more than five minutes midway through the second half to battle back and tie the game at 52.

Michigan led 59-55 in the final minute, but Alex Olah hit a three to bring the Wildcats within one. On the ensuing inbounds pass, Michigan had to call timeout twice to avoid five-second calls. On the third try, Robinson caught the pass in the corner near Northwestern’s bench and appeared to travel, but it wasn’t called. Instead, he drew a foul and made one of two. But Olah made a put-back at the buzzer to send the game into overtime.

Robinson kicked off the extra period with a three and then tied the game at 70 with another with just 46 seconds remaining. Northwestern guard Bryant McIntosh missed a shot, giving Michigan a chance to win it. Irvin dribbled to his right and pulled up from the right elbow to hit the game-winning shot.

Michigan made 12-of-19 threes for the game and 16-of-20 free throws, outscoring Northwestern from the charity stripe 16 to nine. Robinson led the Wolverines with 21 points on 6-of-10 shooting and 4-of-6 three-point shooting. Irvin added 19 points and eight rebounds, while Abdur-Rahkman scored 14 on 4-of-7 three-point shooting, in addition to eight rebounds. Walton was held to just two points on 0-of-7 shooting, but did add seven rebounds and led the team with five assists.

Northwestern got 21 points from Tre Demps, 20 from Olah, and 19 from McIntosh. Olah also pulled down 13 rebounds. The rest of Northwestern’s lineup combined for just 10 points.

Michigan will face top-seed Indiana in the quarterfinals in a win-and-you’re-in contest. The game tips off at 12pm Eastern on ESPN.

#16 Iowa 71 – Michigan 61: Senior Night loss leaves Michigan with work to do

Sunday, March 6th, 2016


UM vs Iowa(Dustin Johnson, UMHoops)

Needing a victory to feel comfortable about an NCAA Tournament at-large bid, Michigan couldn’t find consistent offense or make enough stops defensively to hand Iowa its fifth straight loss. Instead, Michigan lost for the fourth time in five games to close the regular season 20-11 overall and 10-8 in Big Ten plan.

Duncan Robinson opened the game with a three-pointer, but Iowa scored the next seven and then pulled out to a 15-5 lead by the first media timeout. Michigan played catch up the remainder of the half, pulling within 30-28 at one point, but going into the locker room with a 36-30 deficit.

Iowa’s Anthony Clemmons opened the second half with a three and by the midway point of the half, Iowa held a 15-point lead at 59-44. A nearly 11-minute scoring drought by the Hawkeyes allowed Michigan to crawl back into it, but the Wolverines were only able to pull within five with 6:13 remaining.

In the span of three possessions, Zak Irvin missed a long three and then turned the ball over, the latter leading directly to an Iowa basket. Derrick Walton followed with a layup, but Iowa caught Michigan sleeping with a wide open three-pointer. After two scoreless minutes, a Mark Donnal layup brought Michigan within six with 1:34 remaining, but Iowa found senior Jarrod Uthoff on a runout inbounds play for an and-one to effectively put the game away.

Walton led Michigan with 14 points, six assists, and five rebounds, while Irvin added 11 and eight. Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman was the only other Wolverine in double figures with 10 points on a 4-of-13 shooting night. Donnal contributed nine points and 10 rebounds, while Robinson added eight and eight.

As a team, Michigan shot just 35.9 percent from the field and 23.5 percent form three-point range. Irvin, Robinson, and Abdur-Rahkman combined to make just 2-of-18 three-point attempts. Michigan held a 43 to 35 rebounding edge, and both teams made seven free throws, but Iowa simply made more shots. The Hawkeyes shot 45.2 percent from the field.

Michigan heads into the Big Ten Tournament as the eighth seed and will need to win at least two to earn an NCAA Tournament berth. The Wolverines face nine-seed Northwestern on Thursday afternoon, and if they win, will face top-seeded Indiana the next day in the quarterfinals. Michigan won the season’s only meeting with Northwestern, 72-63, two weeks ago.

Wisconsin 68 – Michigan 57: Badgers hand Michigan 10th loss

Sunday, February 28th, 2016


UM vs Wisconsin(Max Siker, BadgerNation.com)

Michigan continued its limp to the regular season finish line Sunday evening with a 68-57 loss to Wisconsin. The Wolverines have now dropped five of their last eight as they try to hang onto an invite to the NCAA Tournament.

Michigan hung with Wisconsin for about 27 minutes, but went six and a half minutes with only a Duncan Robinson three while Wisconsin broke open a nine point lead. Derrick Walton and Zak Irvin both missed open layups that could have kept the Wolverines in the game, while the biggest drama of the last few minutes centered around whether or not little-used Wisconsin senior Jordan Smith would get in the game on Senior Night. He did and thanks to two free throws in the closing minute his point total equaled that of Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman.

Michigan shot 48 percent from the field, but made just 5-of-13 three-point attempts. Wisconsin made 8-of-21 and held an eight-point advantage at the free throw line. Wisconsin also out-rebounded Michigan 33-20.

Irvin led Michigan with 14 points on 6-of-13 shooting, in addition to eight rebounds, but he also turned the ball over five times. Walton struggled from the field, going 3-of-13, but recorded 10 points, eight assists, and five rebounds. Robinson and Ricky Doyle  both also added 10 points, while Mark Donnal faced foul trouble most of the game and scored just six.

Bronson Koenig led Wisconsin with 19 points, while Nigel Hayes added 16, Vitto Brown 14, and Ethan Happ 12.

The Wolverines get six days off before hosting Iowa to close the regular season. At 20-10 overall and 10-7 in the Big Ten, Michigan may need to beat the Hawkeyes to secure a spot in the Big Dance. Iowa (20-8, 11-5) has lost three in a row, including a 68-64 loss to Ohio State this afternoon, and gave away the Big Ten title to Indiana.

Michigan 72 – Northwestern 63: Rahk and Dawk fuel comeback win

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016


MAAR vs Northwestern(Rick Osentoski, USA Today Sports)

Three weeks ago on the same home court, Michigan raced out to a 17-6 lead over Indiana, but lost the game by 13 points. On Wednesday night the Wolverines took the opposite route. Thanks to an 0-for-8 start, Michigan dug itself a 17-6 hole, but fought back for a nine-point win over Northwestern.

It took nearly six minutes for Michigan to score its first basket, a Zak Irvin layup, in front of a sleepy Crisler Center crowd. But then Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman took matters into his own hands, scoring nine of Michigan’s next 11 points to pull the Wolverines within two at 19-17. By the time the first half came to a close, Michigan trailed by just one point.

The second half began eerily similar to the first with Michigan missing every shot it took and digging itself another hole. Abdur-Rahkman got Michigan on the board 4:12 into the half, but Michigan trailed 37-30. As Michigan clawed back in, it got a boost from a sophomore off the bench.

Aubrey Dawkins, who has seen his minutes decrease throughout the season, hit back to back three-pointers to tie the game at 44. A pair of free throws by Kameron Chatman gave Michigan its first lead. The game went back and forth over the next four minutes until Dawkins put Michigan ahead for good with his third three of the half. From there on, Michigan hit 10-of-11 free throws to seal the game.

Abdur-Rahkman led the way with 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting, while Derrick Walton had a quiet 16, sinking all eight of his free throw attempts. Dawkins added 11 points and seven rebounds.

Northwestern had a trio of players in double figures, led by center Alex Olah’s 19. Tre Demps and Aaron Falzon each added 14.

As a team, Michigan shot 49 percent from the field but just 26.7 percent from three-point range. Northwestern shot 46.3 percent overall and 30.8 percent from downtown. Michigan dominated the glass with a 33-24 advantage, but won the game at the free throw line where they made 20-of-20 compared to Northwestern’s 5-of-9.

At 20-9 overall and 10-6 in the Big Ten, Michigan still has work to do if it wants to breathe comfortably on Selection Sunday. The Wolverines visit Wisconsin on Sunday and then host Iowa the following Sunday before Big Ten Tournament play begins. A win in one of those games should be enough to put Michigan comfortably in the NCAA Tournament field, but lose both and they’ll have to win one or two in Indianapolis to avoid sweating it out.

#6 Maryland 86 – Michigan 82: Wolverines come up short of Maryland sweep

Sunday, February 21st, 2016


UM-Maryland

A loss is always a tough pill to swallow, whether inevitable or unexpected, in blowout fashion or nail-biting.

Today’s 86-82 Michigan loss to Maryland stings just a little more though. Perhaps that’s better than the numbness felt after some of the blowouts handed to the Maize and Blue earlier this year.

Few Wolverine fans were giving the visitors much of a shot at even competing on the Terrapins’ home floor this afternoon – let alone stealing a victory – but Michigan fought valiantly despite missing Caris LeVert once again. A win would have all but guaranteed a berth in the NCAA Tournament while a loss pushes Michigan ever closer to the bubble.

For the better part of the first half, it seemed that another lopsided, lightly contested loss was in order for a Michigan squad that’s been drubbed a bit too often this season. Before 10 minutes had passed after the tip, the Wolverines trailed by double digits and couldn’t get a shot to fall. A couple minutes later and the deficit had ballooned to 16 points on a Robert Carter and-1, completing a 17-1 run for Maryland that brought back nightmares of Indiana’s similarly devastating 25-0 first half blitz not long ago.

Michigan had every reason to fold this afternoon as they did against the Hoosiers. They were close to double digit underdogs and not supposed to be able to battle with the top-10 Terps.

But Derrick Walton didn’t want any of it. After trailing by 16, the junior orchestrated a 17-6 run for the visitors with some unlikely help from Kam Chatman.

Seemingly dead in the water midway through the first half, Michigan clawed back to make it a five-point deficit at the break.

After halftime, the Wolverines continued to chip away at Maryland’s lead and eventually tied things up at 47 three minutes into the second half. What Walton had started, Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman and Mark Donnal were finishing.

The redshirt sophomore Donnal (officially listed as a junior on Michigan’s roster) started dominating all over the floor, scoring 20 points less than 13 minutes into the second half while true sophomore Abdur-Rahkman sneakily dished out five dimes in the same time period while pouring in a few points of his own.

Still, Maryland would use their offensive firepower to take an eight-point lead just a few minutes after Michigan had tied things up. The Wolverines battled back yet again to take a 75-72 lead (tying their largest lead of the game) with just 5:51 to play, but the Terps finished the fight with a 14-7 finishing spurt to KO Michigan.

It’s not a loss to be disappointed in to be sure, considering Maryland is one of three teams in the country to be ranked in the top 10 for the entire season to date, but it’s a tough one to see slip away – even if it was never fully within Michigan’s grasp.

We saw tenacity from the Wolverines today that’s been all too absent in other losses, and we saw the offense get back on track following a rough shooting stretch over the last few games and in today’s first half. We also saw the reemergence of Donnal, who nearly matched his career high set in the first game of the Big Ten season with 25 points today on 10-of-13 shooting against an excellent Maryland front court. Donnal has now clearly separated himself from a shaky big man rotation after losing his starting job in each of the past two seasons to Ricky Doyle, who has struggled mightily this year, and is finishing bunnies, competing on the boards (two offensive/three defensive rebounds today), and providing some defensive resistance for a team sorely lacking on that end of the court (career high five blocks today). The Ohio native also showed off the three-point shot this afternoon that made him a four-star high school recruit with three straight triples to stretch the defense.

Walton’s 14 points, six rebounds, five assists, and three steals were also crucial to keep Michigan afloat, but his five turnovers were costly and his fifth foul late sealed the Wolverines’ fate.

That foul, which came on a push-off while driving to the rim with 18 seconds remaining and Michigan trailing by three, is not one you see called often, especially down the stretch in a close game. It wasn’t the strangest whistle of the afternoon though, unfortunately. That came a few minutes earlier with a one-point Maryland lead when Zak Irvin was chasing after a loose ball side-by-side with a Maryland player around halfcourt and puzzlingly called for a push as he reached to pick up the ball. It felt like a big momentum swing even though no free throws were involved, as did an earlier call on Walton for slapping at the ball – and getting what looked like all ball – against a big man.

Michigan’s bench play also left plenty to be desired. The six Wolverines to get minutes off the bench combined to score six points on 2/8 shooting with one rebound, two assists, a steal, and a turnover in 25 minutes. All those points came from Chatman, as did the rebound, the steal, and the assists.

The starters, meanwhile, all finished in double digits while playing between 29 and 39 minutes.

And the shots started falling, with 13 made threes on 27 attempts. But ultimately, Michigan’s 16 turnovers, 17 fouls (leading to 19 Maryland free throw attempts, of which they made 17), and porous defense were too much to overcome.

The loss certainly stings, and a giant opportunity was lost. I still think there’s reason for some hope and excitement, however, and a win over Northwestern at home on Wednesday would keep the Wolverines in the projected Big Dance field.

Quick Hitters

• Derrick Walton’s five fouls make him the first Wolverine to foul out all season.

• The loss today marks the only game John Beilein has ever lost at Michigan when the Wolverines scored 80 or more points, ending the streak at 50 games.

• Aubrey Dawkins played only four minutes, tying his season low, and did not take a shot for just the third time all season.

Ohio State 76 – Michigan 66: Punchless Wolverines fall at Ohio State

Tuesday, February 16th, 2016


UM-OSU(Kyle Robertson, Columbus Dispatch)

Michigan’s trek to an NCAA Tournament bid got a bit tougher on Tuesday night. The Wolverines looked like they were going through the motions as they fell 76-66 at Ohio State.

Michigan shot just 39 percent from the field and made just 5-of-24 three-point attempts to drop their third game in the last five. Ohio State, meanwhile, shot 59.1 percent in the second half and 54 percent for the game to pick up their best win of the season.

Mark Donnal led the way for the Wolverines with 17 points on 6-of-10 shooting and seven rebounds. Zak Irvin added 15 points and Derrick Walton Jr 13, but the two combined to make just 10-of-24 shots from the field and 3-of-13 three-point attempts. Irvin became the 50th Michigan player to reach 1,000 points in his career.

It took Michigan nearly three minutes to score their first point, a pair of free throws by Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman, and Ohio State jumped out to a 7-2 lead. A Duncan Robinson three — his only points of the game — put Michigan ahead 12-10 at the 12:07 mark, but Ohio State closed the half on a 26-16 run to take a 36-28 halftime lead.

Michigan scored the first four points of the second half, but a 10-1 Ohio State run put the Buckeyes up 10 and Michigan could never recover. The Buckeye lead stayed between seven and 14 points the rest of the way.

Ohio State’s offense was balanced with Marc Loving and Jae’Sean Tate each scoring 13 points and Trevor Thompson and JaQuan Lyle both scoring 12.

At 19-8 overall and 9-5 in the Big Ten, Michigan likely needs to win at least two of its last four regular season games and one in the Big Ten Tournament to get an at-large bid into the Big Dance. One of those must be Northwestern next week; lose that one and they’re NIT bound. Then, Michigan needs to steal one of the games against Maryland, Wisconsin, or Iowa. Maryland is up next in College Park this Sunday. Michigan won the season’s first meeting in Ann Arbor, 70-67 on Jan. 12.

Michigan 61 – Purdue 56: Wolverines honor ChadTough with key win

Saturday, February 13th, 2016


UM vs Purdue(Dustin Johnson, UM Hoops)

After getting blown out at home two straight times within the last two weeks, Michigan needed an answer today as they welcomed another ranked opponent, Purdue, to the Crisler Center. It never looked or felt like that answer would come, but when the final buzzer sounded, the Wolverines had indeed finished on top, 61-56, thanks to an 11-0 run to end the game.

Neither team was able to find any sort of offensive rhythm this afternoon, and both teams shot worse than 40 percent from the floor, but Michigan looked like a team dead-set on defending their home floor after being embarrassed twice.

The Wolverines also looked like a team fighting for their NCAA Tournament lives; this win certainly bolsters their resume and gives them a second top-tier conference win. Paired with no bad losses and a couple other solid wins, Michigan looks the part of a safe bet to be dancing come March.

Perhaps the Maize and Blue looked like a group excited to have their veteran star back on the court too. Caris LeVert, of course, is that long lost star who made his return to the floor after missing 11 straight conference games with a mysterious left foot or ankle injury.

Regardless of the motivations behind the victory, Michigan fought tough in a crucial matchup that turned into a bizarre battle.

Purdue’s game revolves around the play of big men A.J. Hammons, Isaac Haas, and Caleb Swanigan, who are all skilled around the rim, shot blocking threats, and good rebounders. In addition to senior guard Raphael Davis, the big trio is the reason Purdue is one of the best defensive teams in the country, limiting the opposition to just 41.4 percent shooting from two-point range and a meager 30.9 percent from distance. They are also the reason the Boilermakers had outgained every single opponent in rebounding this year.

Michigan, on the other hand, is all about guard play and offense. While their defensive rebounding numbers are pretty solid, the Wolverines are certainly not known to clean up the glass with any consistency, and in fact point guard Derrick Walton is actually their best defensive rebounder. They also can struggle to score inside on occasion, which was evident both in Michigan’s earlier loss at Purdue and in today’s win. And because of John Beilein’s offensive system, Michigan almost always has a size disadvantage at the four position, with 6-foot-6 junior Zak Irvin getting most of their minutes there.

Yet somehow, Michigan today managed to both outscore Purdue in the paint (24-22, 66.7%-45.8% on shots in the paint) and outrebound them overall (39-35). And while I’m of the belief that straight up rebounding margin doesn’t mean much, that is certainly an impressive stat, bolstered by the fact that the difference in rebounding today was with the Wolverines grabbing four more of the offensive variety.

It’s not every day you see a Beilein squad out-physical a high quality team for a win – especially one with such inside prowess as Purdue – but today was not every day either.

In another strange occurrence, Zak Irvin was the only Michigan player to crack double digits, and he couldn’t have done it in a crazier way. The Indiana native was ice cold in the first half, having scored just six (2-of-5 2pt, 0-of-2 3pt, 2-of-3 FT) of his game-high 22 points in the opening 20 minutes before catching fire in the second half with 16 points on 2-of-6 shooting inside the arc and 4-of-6 from long range.

Walton, coming off a career night in a victory at Minnesota earlier this week, could not get a shot to fall until finally ending a 0-of-9 streak with 2:06 to play on a beautiful and-1 finish. He did, however, make his free throws to seal the deal and grabbed a pair of crucial rebounds on Purdue’s final two misses.

You want more strange? How about Duncan Robinson, Michigan’s leading three-point shooter, attempting only one three on the afternoon, and missing that one, but scoring four points inside the arc? And, to make things interesting, he only played 21 minutes because of foul trouble.

Don’t worry, there’s more. LeVert, who was Michigan’s leader in many statistical categories before falling prey to injury and losing so many games, played 11 minutes, all in the first half, and had five more rebounds than he had points – of which he had none on only one shot attempt.

The strange continues on and on: Kameron Chatman and D.J. Wilson, usually seen riding the pine, saw six minutes of combined action and scored two points apiece, but were chosen to lead the team in The Victors following the win in the locker room.

And, oh yeah – did I mention that Michigan won a game making 36.4 percent of their shots and only five of 20 threes? And that the Wolverines pulled it out despite only leading for about 6:30 of playing time, with most of that coming shortly after the tip? How about that Michigan trailed by 10 points roughly halfway into the first half and looked primed for another home beatdown before clawing back?

It was bizarre in many ways, and I never thought Michigan would come out on top until the very end. But the Wolverines deserve plenty of credit. They never seemed to be in the game, but they were almost always within 4-6 points despite their epic shooting woes. There were plenty of times that they could have seen their shot not fall and proceed to wilt away because it wasn’t their day.

So you could look at this game and cry that it was a fluke.

But you could also look at it and see some toughness, some grit, some fight. You could see a team that can win in more than one way.

I’ll choose the latter.

Quick Hitters

• John Beilein said after the game that he didn’t expect LeVert to be ready to play before yesterday’s practice, but LeVert had a good practice where he was able to go full-court for a while and “got gassed” pretty quickly. Following that practice, LeVert told his coach that he wanted to give it a go. Before letting that happen, Beilein wanted to make sure it was the right decision and checked back with him a few times. He also insisted that LeVert participate in regular warmups to see how his ankle/foot held up.

Because of the late decision, Beilein mentioned that there was not much offense drawn up for LeVert, and they were aiming to give him 10-15 minutes of playing time to loosen him up and help him get back in the flow of things. He did not specify whether LeVert sitting for the entire second half was planned, but Beilein also did not seem worried about it at all and said he would have been available in an emergency situation, and seemed to indicate that he will be on track to give it a go again at Ohio State on Tuesday. LeVert was not available to the media following the game, but there were no indications that he aggravated his injury or did not feel well enough to go play in the second half.

• After Derrick Walton missed his first three open looks, Beilein said he gave Walton motivation or confidence by telling him to “make the shots, damn it”. It did not necessarily work, as Walton missed plenty more open shots along the way, but his layup and free throws down the stretch with critical.

• Mark Donnal had another serviceable game, with eight points on 2-of-6 shooting and 4-of-4 free throws. He also dunked for the second straight game, which I believe are his only two dunks in conference play despite seeing drastically increased playing time and a much larger role in the offense.

• I also thought Ricky Doyle had another pretty solid game with four points on 2-of-2 shooting in 14 minutes, but his free throws continue to disappoint. He missed his only two attempts from the line today to bring his average to 60.5 percent on the season.

• Speaking of free throws, you’ll never guess who the only Wolverine to have attempted at least 15 free throws and have a worse percentage than Doyle is. Well, you probably will because if you are reading this you’ve probably seen most of Michigan’s games…but the answer is Zak Irvin, who is inexplicably shooting a woeful 60.4% at the charity stripe. In one of the stranger things I saw today (and it was a strange day indeed – see above), I looked up Irvin’s career numbers at the free throw line after he missed his first attempt today – a front-end of a 1-and-1 – badly and saw a statistical oddity: Irvin’s numbers at the line have gotten worse year-over-year since his freshman season. As a pure shooter in his first year, Irvin made 71.4% of his free throws. As a sophomore, the number dropped slightly to a still-respectable 68.9 percent. Now in his junior season, the mark has plummeted by a whopping 8.5 percent. It’s rare to see a pure shooter have such poor shooting numbers, and even rarer to see someone’s free throw percentage drop two consecutive years.

• A couple won a $500 jewelry gift card during a timeout contest…and then got engaged immediately after at center court. I have never seen a ring purchased so quickly in my life.
