SCOUTING REPORT: Michigan basketball vs. Rutgers prediction

SO YOU’RE SAYING THERE’S A CHANCE: Players’ short suspensions mean Wolverines have plenty to play for

WINDSOR: Juwan Howard lucky he avoided harsher punishment; players caught in between

Game notes: Michigan is playing its first game since the end-game skirmish between U-the Wolverines and Wisconsin Badgers. Howard was fined and suspended five games for striking a Wisconsin coach and two Michigan players, Moussa Diabate and Terrence Williams II were suspended for one game. The Wolverines are 3-2 in their last five and could use a few more wins or their NCAA tournament hopes become Big Ten title game or bust. … Rutgers has built a tourney-level resume with upsets over ranked teams such as Purdue, Michigan State, Wisconsin and Illinois. The Scarlet Knights beat an undermanned Wolverines team on Jan. 4 and have won four of five, with the only loss coming in a rematch vs. No. 7 Purdue. Ron Harper Jr. leads the team with 15.5 points per game and scored 20 last time these two teams met. Geo Baker had 27 points that night.
