Charles Matthews did not get to play in the final home game of his Michigan career on Thursday night in the 82-53 win over Nebraska due to an ankle injury, but his fingerprints were still all over the night.
Matthews was honored before the game as Michigan’s lone senior and the team wanted to play for him to honor their guy. John Beilein spoke about Matthews after the game, and also shared a story that illustrates why he is one of the most unselfish players he has ever come across.

Beilein did not have an update on the injury status of Matthews and does not have a timetable for his return.
Michigan’s final two regular season home games come in the form of a trip to Maryland on Sunday for a 3:45 p.m. ET start before heading to Michigan State for a rematch on March 9, which is set for an 8 p.m. tipoff.
