Big brother dunked on little brother both figuratively and literally on Saturday.
Michigan beat Michigan State 75-64 in the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament, giving the Wolverines their third win over the Spartans this year and giving fans and even former players some ammunition on social media.
Former Michigan basketball player Zack Novak was one of those people, roasting Spartan star Miles Bridges with a snapshot of the player in the waning minutes of the game.

Of course, Novak forgot about last season when the Spartans topped the Wolverines behind 15 points and 13 rebounds from Bridges, but the humorous jest got over 900 retweets and over 2,000 favorites on Twitter.
Novak’s responses were full of Spartan fans redirecting the former Wolverine guard to the aforementioned score while Wolverine fans were quick to pile on Bridges.
At the end of the day though, Bridges can do his talking on the court with his 16.9 career points per game average with an 8.3 rebound average who’s projected to be a first-round NBA draft pick.
Novak, on the other hand, averaged 8.1 points per game with 4.5 rebounds but did have his fair share of assists and had a .360 3-point percentage.
