Michigan's Caris LeVert talks bouncing back, improved defense in win

Caris LeVert talks bouncing back during Saturday's victory over Delaware State.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- After one of the worst performances of his career Tuesday night against SMU, Michigan needed senior guard Caris LeVert to get his mind right and get back his shooting touch.

Finishing with only five points Tuesday night, Saturday was a much better game for the entire team as a whole. LeVert led the Wolverines with 15 points and also included four rebounds and four assists as well.

For LeVert, he redeemed himself on Saturday.

"Yeah it's always good to see the ball go through the basket," LeVert said. "The main objective tonight was to come out and get a win, improve defensively and I think we did that today. I was just playing the game, my shots will come, I know that. Just try to play basketball the right way."

LeVert  credited SMU's defense for limiting him on Tuesday as well as just simply missing some shots he should've made. Now that the bad taste has been removed from his mouth, the team was able to move forward in Saturday's game.

Six Wolverines finished with double-digit point totals in the Wolverines' 80-33 drubbing of Delaware State. Although having that many players being so efficient at once can't happen every game, LeVert says it's something that the team tried to improve upon this week.

"That's something we really stressed in film after the SMU game," LeVert said. "We missed a lot of easy points at the rim with the bigs and with the cutters late, things like that. I think we really did that today in the game."
