Five takeaways from Michigan’s 83-64 win over Maryland

Michigan carried over elements of Friday’s loss to Illinois into Tuesday’s game against Maryland, bashing the Terrapins to the tune of an 83-64 victory. Here are five takeaways on the Wolverines’ sound performance:

Houstan at last snaps out of slump

Phil Martelli expressed a vote of confidence in Caleb Houstan Monday, saying he expects the freshman wing to shoot “9-for-9” from the field Tuesday against Maryland. 

Houstan fell short of Martelli’s declaration, but nonetheless delivered his best performance since early December. He finished with 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting, including 3-of-4 from beyond the arc. 

“When you’re out there competing and the ball hits your hands and then your first shot goes in, you feel a sigh of relief,” Juwan Howard said after the game, referencing Houstan’s catch-and-shoot 3-pointer 60 seconds into the game. “You feel good about yourself and you feel like it’s gonna be a good night.”
