ANN ARBOR, Mich. -

The Wolverines are set to host the Spartans on the basketball court in Ann Arbor Sunday.

Michigan coach John Beilein says the sky is not falling after losing to last-place Penn State. Beilein does acknowledge that February was not "kind" to his team. He's hoping No. 4 Michigan bounces back to beat No. 9 Michigan State on Sunday at home.
 
The Wolverines lost four of seven games last month after winning 20 of its first 21 games and climbing to No. 1 in The Associated Press poll for the first time in two decades. During the slump, Michigan got beat by 23 points against the Spartans and blew a 15-point lead Wednesday that allowed the Nittany Lions to win their first Big Ten game this season.
 
The ninth-ranked Spartans have been losing lately, too, losing two straight games for the first time this season.
