CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WWJ) – Zack Novak had a team high 12 points but it wasn’t enough as the Michigan Wolverines fall to the Virginia Cavaliers 70-58 on Tuesday night.

As heard on WWJ 950 – the Wolverines (5-2) matched play in the first half but stalled defensively in the second half to the hot hands of the Cavaliers (6-1) in the first round of the Bit Ten-ACC Challenge.
