Zavier Simpson got to pick the photo that would go in his frame on Senior Night.
He chose one that showed him yelling, arms bent, head tilted upwards. Angry. The senior guard thought that photo encapsulated his whole college experience.
“It’s the expression that I want to make when I go back and look on the memories that I have,” Simpson said. “The ups and downs. Freshman year, not playing, all those types of things, that’s just the anger and I want to show.
“I just chose that photo because I thought it represented me the most throughout my four years of college.”
It juxtaposed a happy occasion, an 82-58 thrashing of Nebraska in which Simpson scored 11 with 10 assists, his fifth double-double of the season. As Michigan started to mount an 18-4 run to open the second half that put the game in the refrigerator, Simpson hit a corner three, one of two on the night.
