Michigan Player Spotlight
Coach Juwan Howard said Friday that Isaiah Livers (groin) still needs to be evaluated before a decision is made on his status against Rutgers on Saturday, Brandon Brown of wolverinedigest.com reports. Howard should still be considered questionable for Saturday's tilt against Rutgers, and is looks as though his availability could come down to a game-time decision. The junior is averaging 13.1 points and 3.4 rebounds across 30.8 minutes per game this season.
