Michigan's basketball season took another disappointing turn Sunday when the team announced standout guard Caris LeVert will miss the rest of the season with a foot injury.
LeVert hurt his foot during Saturday night's victory over Northwestern. The Wolverines were already facing an uphill climb to make the NCAA tournament, and losing LeVert could be devastating. The school says he is scheduled to have surgery this week. There will be a 12-week recovery and rehabilitation period.
It's the same foot on which LeVert had surgery in May.
LeVert leads Michigan in scoring (14.9 points per game) and rebounding (4.9).
Indiana 80, Illinois 74: James Blackmon Jr. and Troy Williams scored 21 points each as the Hoosiers (14-4, 4-1) beat the Illini (12-7, 2-4). The Hoosiers had lost 11 of their last 12 and five straight at Illinois.
