In this episode, Zach Shaw and Alejandro Zuniga take a look at the Michigan men's basketball team (7-7) as it slowly returns to full health.

We examine the Wolverines' loss to Illinois, and whether it moved the needle on our opinion of Michigan's season. We discuss Michigan's effort and energy level, why it was important, and what it means once the Wolverines get Hunter Dickinson and Brandon Johns Jr. We also take a loot at Michigan's shooting woes, and debate how much the Wolverines should tweak players' shots as opposed to pushing confidence.

We close with some moving-forward discussions. We ponder potential lineup changes, and the pros and cons of involving the bench more. Then we outline why the next five games will define the Wolverines' season, for better or worse.
