Michigan basketball shows it has wiped away pain of loss to MSU

Michigan’s Charles Matthews discusses his return to the starting lineup in 74-53 win over Iowa in Big Ten tournament quarterfinals March 15, 2019.

"There was a lot of positive energy," Michigan guard Jordan Poole said Friday night after a 74-53 thrashing of Iowa in the Big Ten tournament quarterfinals.

Charles Matthews, who returned to the starting lineup after missing three games with an ankle injury, was quick to tell reporters the losses to Michigan State didn't "break" this team.

But if the Wolverines had gone through another clunky offensive game and barely scrapped together a victory Friday, then the same lingering questions that have hovered over this group for the past 10 days would've remained.

That allowed Isaiah Livers to come off the bench again, which gave Michigan an instant spark more than once as the sophomore forward finished with 13 points in 27 minutes.
