Michigan Upsets (23) Ohio State, 64-57

Michigan Upsets (23) Ohio State, 64-57

Mitchell Layton/Getty Images(ANN ARBOR, Mich.) -- Michigan picked up a much-needed win after taking down 23rd ranked Ohio State 64-57 on Sunday.

The Wolverines snapped a five-game losing streak.

Ohio State was behind the Wolverines by as much as 17 points in the second half before making a 14-0 run to make the game 49-46. A Zak Irvin 3-pointer kept the Buckeyes at distance though.

Spike Albrecht led Michigan with 16 points, five assists, four rebounds, and two steals. Even though he's averaging just 6.4 points per game, he was arguably Michigan's best player against Ohio State.

Along with his clutch 3, Irvin also chipped in with 15 points and seven rebounds.

Ohio State freshman guard D'Angelo Russell did all he could to keep the Buckeyes in the game. He scored 16 points with five rebounds and two assists.

Jim Harbaugh: 49ers Left Me

Jim Harbaugh: 49ers Left Me

Ralph Freso/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh told "The TK Show," a San Jose Mercury News podcast on Friday that he wanted to return as the 49ers head coach, but it was their choice to move on.

Harbaugh led the 49ers to three consecutive NFC Championship games and a Super Bowl appearance during his time in San Francisco.

"I was told I wouldn't be the coach anymore," Harbaugh said. "And then ... you can call it 'mutual,' I mean, I wasn't going to put the 49ers in the position to have a coach that they didn't want anymore."

"But that's the truth of it," Harbaugh continued.  "I didn't leave the 49ers. I felt like the 49er hierarchy left me."

Harbaugh was 49-22-1 in four seasons and he admitted in the podcast that others inside the organization began treating him differently.

"I wasn't reading anything that was on the Internet, I was really focused on doing my job, but definitely walk down the halls and people look away or they look at you and you know something's going on," Harbaugh said.

Michigan Guard Caris LaVert Out for Season with Foot Injury

Michigan Guard Caris LaVert Out for Season with Foot Injury

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  Michigan Wolverines guard Caris Lavert will miss the rest of the season after suffering a left foot injury.

LaVert suffered the injury during the team's win over Northwestern on Saturday. LaVert hurt the same foot in May, and will need to undergo surgery for a second time.

"Caris has been working so hard this season and for this to happen is very unfortunate," Michigan coach John Beilein said in a statement released by the school. "If we know anything about Caris, he will do everything it takes to not only get better, but to help his teammates during this time.

"He is a tremendous young man who I will really miss coaching the remainder of the season. However, I am optimistic he will have a complete recovery."

LaVert, a junior, was considered one of the best guard prospects in college basketball prior to the injury.

This season, LaVert was averaging 14.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 3.7 assits per game.

Michigan State Coach Is Looking Forward to Rivalry with Michigan Saturday

Michigan State Coach Is Looking Forward to Rivalry with Michigan Saturday

David Dermer/ Diamond Images/ Getty Images(EAST LANSING, Mich.) -- Eighth-ranked Michigan State will look to add a sixth victory in the in-state rivalry between Michigan under head coach Mark Dantonio on Saturday.

Since coming over to East Lansing, Dantonio has won five out of six games against the Wolverines, who are 3-4 this season. Still, Dantonio is excited about the rivalry.

"It gets in your blood a little bit, it's just the way it is," Dantonio said on Tuesday.  "It just divides the state so it makes it unique in that respect, and you embrace it, you get involved in it, and it's in you."

Dantonio says despite Michigan's poor record this year, the team still gets pumped up for any rivalry.

"I think they're basically competitors," Dantonio said. "You're going to get yourself ready to play every football game.  Sometimes the more important the game is, the more the competiveness comes out in you and I think that's the nature of this situation."

The Spartan are 3-0 in the Big Ten this season and Michigan is 1-2. Still, Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner said they're just focused on the game ahead and not the season.

"We're not thinking about ruining their season," he added. "This is about us. I want to win this game as bad as I've wanted to win any game."
