Playing without senior guard and leading scorer Caris LeVert for the third straight game, the Michigan basketball team faced a tough task against No. 3 Maryland. With on-paper mismatches across the board, the Wolverines needed a special performance if they wanted to secure a win.
And with every impossible-looking 3-pointer, press-breaking pass and forced turnover on defense, Michigan got it. Leading by as many as 13 at times, the Wolverines (3-1 Big Ten, 13-4 overall) survived a late push by the Terrapins (4-1, 15-2) to win, 70-67.
