Michigan falls at MSU

 

For the second time this season, Michigan went into a tightly contested second half with in-state rival Michigan State, and for the second time, the Wolverines were outplayed down the stretch. Holding a five-point edge with 12 minutes left in the game, the Maize and Blue went ice cold offensively, going 7:20 without a field goal and giving up a 20-2 run, ultimately falling 75-63.

Iggy Brazdeikis led the Wolverines with 20 points, despite missing much of the first half with foul trouble. He fouled out of the game with still five minutes left as the Wolverines desperately attempted to spark their offense.

Jordan Pool scored 15 points for Michigan as the only other player to reach double figures.

While the Wolverines missed on their opportunity to claim a share of the Big Ten regular season title, they finished the year with the most regular season victories in program history at 26-5.

Michigan will be the 3-seed in the Big Ten Tournament, playing the late game on March 15 against Iowa, Illinois or Northwestern.
