3. Juwan Howard's criticism didn't go unnoticed

After the home loss to Rutgers coach Howard was frustrated and rightfully so. He exclaimed that his system works and that maybe he should play the backups because they care. His troops responded with a vengeance. The second half toppling of Wisconsin was a sight for sore eyes for the maize and blue faithful.

Michigan basketball went on an 8-0 run that was capped by a Will Tschetter three-pointerIt's. They never had to rally again as they snatched victory from the jaws of defeat for once. The two squads matched each other point-for-point the rest of the way giving Wisconsin its third consecutive loss. It's only Michigan's second win in as many months.

Michigan basketball travels to Nebraska on Saturday where they haven't lost since 2018. The Wolverines have beaten the Cornhuskers the last seven times they have met and that was the only time Nebraska upended Michigan since joining the Big Ten. Nebraska won that game by 20. It also was the same year that Michigan played for a national championship against Villanova.
