Wolverines' win streak ends at Wisconsin
Written by Matt Pargoff   

Michigan is perfect no more. The Wolverines slipped up at Wisconsin Saturday afternoon, struggling offensively and falling 64-54.

The Maize and Blue led by a narrow margin for most of the game, but the Badgers put together a 7-0 run with less than eight minutes remaining, grabbing a six point advantage. Trailing by six after that stretch, Michigan attempted to come back, but never managed to reclaim the lead.

The Wolverines struggled from long range in the game, making 5-of-18 three-point attempts.

Michigan committed 16 turnovers in the game, taking it away from Wisconsin only 11 times.

Jon Teske led the Wolverines with 16 points, while Jordan Poole scored 14, and Zavier Simpson registered a double-double, scoring 11 and pulling down 10 rebounds.

Falling to 17-1 on the season, Michigan likely missed its opportunity to grab the No. 1 national ranking, following Duke’s loss earlier in the week. U-M will look to start a new run at home on Tuesday, playing host to Minnesota at 7 p.m. eastern on Big Ten Network.
