Video: Juwan Howard Explains Decision To Start Brandon Johns Jr.

Brandon Brown

Once news broke that Eli Brooks would be out of Michigan's lineup against the Badgers due to a broken nose, it seemed like David DeJulius would be the obvious replacement, but Juwan Howard opted to start Brandon Johns Jr. instead. 

After U-M's seven-point loss against the Badgers, Howard was asked about that decision and he did his best to justify his choice.

Would you have started Brandon Johns Jr. or David DeJulius in place of Eli Brooks? Do you think that led to Michigan's loss? Comment below!!!

Narrator: there's no justifying the choice. And this is the kind of mistake that can end your season, with single-elimination just around the corner.
