Michigan was looking good before Derrick Walton left with the ankle injury. Spike playing hurt also (but just came into the game out of necessity). Wolverines getting great production from Williams College transfer Duncan Robinson -- an elite 3-point shooter. I like this Michigan group -- if it can ever get healthy.
