Zak Irvin, Derrick Walton carry the load in off night vs. Minnesota

Zak Irvin and Derrick Walton Jr. have been through plenty together. The pair played in the Big Ten Championship and the Elite Eight as wide-eyed freshman, struggled as sophomores carrying an impossibly young and injury-prone team to a .500 record. Now, without the help of seniors Caris LeVert and Spike Albrecht, the juniors have been tasked with leading a team with as much potential...

Zak Irvin finds his shooting stroke in non-conference finale

It was no secret that Michigan’s offense was rolling, but it was also no secret that there was a missing piece. The Wolverines were inside the top 20 in offensive efficiency, shooting, turnover margin and a bevy of other offensive categories.
