Wolverines scrap past Northwestern for victory
Written by Matt Pargoff   


Coming off an 88-point outing at Purdue, the Wolverines struggled offensively early against Northwestern, scoring just five points in better than 10 minutes of play. Falling behind by as many as nine points, Michigan eventually adjusted to the Wildcats’ zone, putting together a 15-point run on either side of the half, pulling ahead and holding on for a 58-47 victory.

Charles Matthews led the way for Michigan with 14 points and three steals, while Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman added 11 points and three assists to the scoring effort.

Improving to 18-6, the Wolverines will get a somewhat longer break from action than they’ve been used to this season, returning to the court Saturday at 2:30 p.m. on Fox, playing host to Minnesota.
