Michigan basketball’s turnovers costly in loss to MSU: ‘Horror film’

In a season with little left for Michigan basketball to accomplish, there was one thing remaining to play for.

Stealing its rival’s soul. On Saturday night, in front of a crowd that chanted “Go Green, Go White” every bit as frequently as it did “Go Blue,” the last-place Wolverines, who were without senior forward Terrance Williams II, gave it everything they had.

They withstood a nine-point deficit early and even punched back after a 14-3 MSU flurry to tie the game with just more than eight minutes to play. But ultimately they couldn’t overcome 13 second-half turnovers, including six in the final seven minutes during a closing 10-0 MSU run, to assist the Spartans, who held on for the 73-63 win.
