Darius Morris led Michigan in two victories last week, helping the team to the program’s first win over Michigan State in East Lansing since 1997, followed by the third triple-double in Michigan history against Iowa. For the week Morris averaged 14.5 points, 9.5 assists, 7.0 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game while shooting 63.2 percent from the field. Against the Spartans, the sophomore tallied 17 points on 7-for-10 shooting with eight assists, four rebounds and a pair of steals. Three days later, the Wolverine posted 12 points, grabbed a career-best 10 rebounds and recorded 11 assists. Morris joins Gary Grant and Manny Harris as the only Wolverines in program history to record a triple-double. This marks Morris’ second weekly award of the season.
