Not long ago, the Michigan Wolverines were ranked in the Top 10 in the country. Suddenly, they find themselves near the bottom of the Big Ten standings.
Michigan (11-7) has dropped three straight games, including a 72-63 home loss to Penn State on Wednesday, while tumbling to 2-5 in conference play.
The Wolverines shot just 35.3 percent from the field against the Nittany Lions, including a 17.9-percent success rate on 3-point attempts. They will try to end their slide when they host No. 21 Illinois at Ann Arbor's Crisler Center on Saturday.
