Losing your point guard really hurts.

Michigan loses again. Now have lost six in a row. Illinois up next.

Uh oh.

They have averaged 52 points in the four game stretch since Horton was suspended. And that comes against middle-of-the-pack teams like Ohio State, cellar dwellars like Purdue, and contenders like MSU alike.

Now they get a stretch against 3 ranked teams: Illinois, Wisconsin and MSU.

Michigan's situation shows how bad things could have gone for Marquette. Diener was back today, and handed out 8 assists. The bottom line is that MU wins with him back in the lineup.

Things are looking up for Marquette.
