Isaiah Livers was honest when asked about Michigan’s Christmas Day hoops matchup against Nebraska.

On Wednesday, Livers and the Wolverines returned to the court for a game against Toledo. Michigan was originally scheduled to take on NC State as a part of the B1G/ACC Challenge, but the Wolfpack was forced to postpone due to COVID-19 concerns.

As a result, the Wolverines quickly scrambled to set a game against Toledo, a contest that Michigan won by a final score of 91-71. It moved the team to 5-0 with Livers bouncing back from a five-point outing and poor shooting performance against UCF.

Against the Rockets, Livers put up 16 points on 5-for-7 shooting – including 3-for-4 from three-point range – to go with six rebounds, an assist, two steals, and a block. It is the kind of all-around performance head coach Juwan Howard has grown accustomed to from Livers.

After the game, Livers was asked about traveling to Lincoln to play the Huskers on Christmas Day, a change-up from year’s past. Not only will Michigan miss spending Christmas Day with their families, but the Wolverines – and college basketball teams in general – will not be able to return home over the Christmas break due to concerns with COVID-19.

That means teams will be isolated on campuses over the holidays with a number of teams playing on or around Christmas. Livers admitted a lot of players are not super excited about that.
