ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — As Michigan prepares for another game against rival Michigan State, Isaiah Livers’ status is still uncertain. The 6-foot-7 junior was at Michigan’s media session Friday, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll be able to play Saturday when the Wolverines host No. 16 Michigan State. He was injured against Presbyterian on Dec. 21. The team described it as a groin injury. He has appeared in only one game since. He hurt himself again Jan. 25 against Illinois. Livers said he was hoping to practice Friday. Michigan State beat Michigan 87-69 early last month.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan guard Zavier Simpson reportedly crashed a vehicle registered to the wife of the Wolverines’ athletic director late last month, shortly before the school announced he was suspended for a game. MLive, citing a police report, reported that officers found Simpson outside the vehicle around 3 a.m. on Jan. 26. An officer said he did not notice any smell of intoxicant from Simpson’s breath. Simpson told police the car belonged to Evan Manuel, a student manager for the basketball team who is the son of athletic director Warde Manuel. Police said Chrislan Manuel, Warde Manuel’s wife and the registered owner of the car, spoke with Evan and told police that Simpson had been driving. Simpson received a citation for driving too fast for conditions.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Payton Willis has struggled to find his rhythm for Minnesota. He is still feeling the effects of a sprained ankle that kept him out of three games earlier this season. A new injury turned out to be the spark he needed. Willis sat out when the Gophers lost at Illinois last week. The unexpected rest gave his ankle more time to heal. He responded in his first game back with a career-high 21 points in a win over Wisconsin. He is in his first year with Minnesota after transferring from Vanderbilt.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The University of Wisconsin says basketball strength and conditioning coach Erik Helland has resigned. School officials say they were informed last weekend that Helland used a racial epithet in the presence of players as he recounted a story from his days in the NBA. The former Chicago Bulls staffer was placed on leave and did not travel with the Badgers for Wednesday’s game at Minnesota. The school says it has no evidence Helland directed racially insensitive language toward any particular player.

Investigators: No sign of engine failure for Bryant copter
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Federal investigators say wreckage from the helicopter that crashed last month, killing Kobe Bryant, his daughter and seven others did not show any evidence of engine failure. That’s according to a report by the National Transportation Safety Board. The helicopter crashed into a hillside outside Los Angeles on Jan. 26.
The NTSB is investigating the accident, including any role heavy fog played, and a final report isn’t expected for at least a year. A witness told the NTSB that the helicopter was flying forward and downward through the fog before it crashed into the hill.
2/24: Bryant memorial reflects dad and daughter’s uniforms
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kobe Bryant’s widow says there will be a “celebration of life” memorial on Feb. 24 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles to honor her late husband and 13-year-old daughter Gianna. Vanessa Bryant posted a graphic on Instagram Friday morning to announce the event. Her post only said the event will occur at 10 a.m. and there are “details to come.”
The arena is where Bryant starred for the Lakers for most of his two-decade career and the date 2/24 corresponds with the No. 24 jersey he wore and the No. 2 worn by Gianna. They and seven others died in a helicopter crash last month.
