Michigan’s head coach and star player spoke after the Wolverines’ 61-52 win in Ann Arbor

NCAA Basketball: Wisconsin at Michigan Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Michigan took down Wisconsin on Saturday afternoon at Crisler Center by a score of 61-52, leading to a revenge win for the Wolverines after the Badgers gave them their first loss of the season a few weeks back.

After the game, Wisconsin head coach Greg Gard spoke to the media and had nothing but praise for John Beilein’s team and how both games in the series were played this season.

Michigan guard Jordan Poole, a Milwaukee, Wisconsin native, spoke after the game and addressed his alley-oop to Isaiah Livers in the waning seconds. It may have seemed like overkill, but Poole didn’t forget what happened at the end of the last game between these two.

It should be noted that Wisconsin was actually only up six when that occurred and free throws at the end of the game made it a 10 point victory. But a slight is a slight nonetheless, I guess.

Finally, John Beilein hit the podium and praised Wisconsin for a hard-fought game. When Badgers star Ethan Happ, who had another big game against Michigan, said he hopes to see the Wolverines again this year in the Big Ten Tournament, Beilein was having none of that.

The Wolverines are back in action on Tuesday night with a trip to Penn State, which is scheduled for an 8:30 p.m. tipoff.
