ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Following Tuesday's home loss to rival Michigan State, frustration was evident on the faces of several Wolverines.
Now losers of five straight games, falling to 6-8 in Big Ten play and likely eliminated from postseason play barring a significant turnaround over the final four games, Michigan is in a bind the likes of which hasn’t been seen in several seasons in Ann Arbor.
For Zak Irvin, who scored 16-points against the Spartans, his up and down shooting this season has certainly taken a toll on the sophomore mentally.
"There is a lot of frustration," Irvin said. "I don't think I'm shooting the ball as well as I can. Sometimes I think about it too much.
“At the beginning of the season and all last season I was just shooting the ball. I need just try to stay confident out there and have my mindset right going in."
