EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Rarely does Michigan basketball coach John Beilein's offense appear stale. But rarely have his Wolverines executed as poorly as they did against No. 10 Michigan State on Sunday.

In a 64-54 loss at the Breslin Center, No. 22 Michigan's offense never strung together more than a few possessions looking efficient and effective. Instead, the Wolverines turned the ball over 10 times and had one of their lowest scoring outputs of the season.

The Spartans were able to shut them down by pushing play outside, effectively shutting down the Wolverines' pick-and-roll offense that they've relied heavily upon this season. Without the pick-and-roll, the catalyst of their offense, Michigan never got going offensively.
