Michigan freshman guard Caris LeVert is earning more and more time on the floor of late. Playing 16 minutes in the Wolverines win over Illinois Sunday; LeVert was productive on both ends of the floor.

Michigan basketball (23-5, 10-5) suffered the most embarrassing loss imaginable in Big Ten play by losing 84-78 against Penn State. The Nittany Lions (9-18, 1-14) were 0-14 coming into the game in conference action and hadn’t won a Big Ten game in 18 tries.
That streak ended tonight with a torrid final 10 minutes of play by Patrick Chambers’ team.

2. Illinois had just seven assists on 21 made baskets. The Illini are 340th of 347 Division I teams in assist rate. They've been...
