Livers good to go coming off title game injury
Written by Matt Pargoff   


Michigan had to finish its successful run to a Big Ten Tournament Title a man short against Purdue, playing without true freshman forward Isaiah Livers, who injured his ankle midway through the first half. Still waiting to find out who they will play in the NCAA Tournament, the Wolverines have already return to full strength.

Meeting with press on Friday afternoon, head coach John Beilein noted that Livers tweaked the same ankle he hurt against Northwestern on Feb. 6, which caused him to miss one game. With a week off from action, Livers has once again made a quick recovery.

“He’s good. He’s really good,” Beilein noted. “Because it was the same ankle and the same thing, usually there’s this initial pain, but because he’s done so much therapy on it … The first day back we held him out a little bit, but he was full go yesterday.”

Entering the starting lineup on Jan. 13, in the Wolverines’ first of two wins against Michigan State, Livers has split time with veteran Duncan Robinson at the position. On the year, he has averaged 15.2 minutes per game, scoring 3.9 points per outing.

Michigan is guaranteed a spot in the NCAA Tournament and will find out who and where they will play on Sunday.
